What was it like not to be full of rage all the time? I don't remember.
- same for PSA
- the Moneyzone for backlist episodes of MBMBAM and The Adventure Zone

I do suddenly want to spend all my money on gear though, which could be a minor problem.
Still enjoying the novelty of the water in our kitchen draining properly. Functioning plumbing. Truly the gift that keeps giving.
