I was imagining that if the Trump presidency was really just a movie, some of this music (Palestrina) would have made a good soundtrack for the last 48 hours of drama,

Glad you are all here! Pretty cool to hang out with Anton (Bruckner, that is). I had such a crush when I was 16. It's true.

as someone who appreciates reality over convenience also, i started to make you one too; but i've been busy and only almost finished it today. i guess i'll save it for next year?!
Avatar 8:49pm Bethany Ryker:

@coelacanth - feel free to s t r e t c h out the Valentine's greeting and send whenever you like! No need to postpone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm coelacanth∅:

okay! - it's just that when you said we could send our request via real mail, an image for a card popped into my head, based on a conversation we had years ago on the phone - before the comment board existed. maybe you'll remember when you see it, maybe not.
...but i should've known i couldn't make it in time.
