Above is Gerald Allsorts. An true experiment. He's totally wonky and weird, but I like the looks of him and think he needs the company of some other weird fellows. I just need to make it through some deadlines, and then I can make Gerald some friends.

And, wouldn't you know it? The fire flared up again early this morning. Right across the road from R's house. The firefighters came right way, so it's hopefully all taken care of now, but it gives me the willies.
