Bless my heart, pretty kittens, you are back. Was last week that good? Did you forget about what the news appetizers deal usually about? Did that hope and positivity get you thinking, oh hey, I can get some more next week? Gluttons for punishment! You forgot the ways in which things roll in these parts. While I find it almost like a mistake you have wandered back in for the masochism of the daily news, I am overjoyed that you brave the ether with me, as we ever so gently face palm our way into the absurd (yes, the absurd). Like moths to a flame, we seek out the punishment that comes with the awareness of what takes place in our modern world. So lets put on our happy faces and hold on for dear life.

Naughty, naughty learners! Say you are sorry for reading up on such things! Lick my boots as I tell you that the news has soiled your pretty minds and hurt your pretty hearts! Wait what? This isn’t the dungeon? I’m at my writing gig? Oh…well, either kittens, you have voluntarily subjected yourself to a torture most people pay for. Kudos to you delicious treats. I commend your bravery and only say, til next time, darlings. Till next time.
