Existential Exhaustion and My Publisher

The WTO Publisher, Bob Patchen, posted this on Facebook yesterday. But his pants are so very fancy and he has Facebook set to not let people share his stuff.

I could find some way to apply Minchin to life every single week. I'm slacking. And I'm not entirely sorry. This … Continue reading Minchin Monday and Good (Banned) Books
