1. Kippen understands me, and speaks for me. What a relief and how nice it is to have a voice in the wilderness when I am too stressed to speak.
2. Felling quite alarmed and melty by the task before me, and the bugs which I am attempting to destroy through natural methods rather than chemical ones, and especially by the one that crawled along my baseboard (can't you bastards die already?), last night I messaged Kryptonite, and asked to be allowed to sleep over one more time. "Sure," he replied, and when I said in relief, "oh my god. THANK YOU." He wrote "That's what family is for." It meant a lot to me.
