Tumblr is really dead. It only just turned midnight on the west coast. WTF. Fine. I’ll just go to sleep. EDIT: WAIT A MINUTE My cat wasn’t coming in after I first posted this so I stalled and spent like 20 minutes on flossing and brushing and washing before bed.

Lovely Old Men: Update!

Love your parents.
