    My brain feels like pureed squash.

    Ugh.
    Your brain is giving me a stomachache.

    Yes, sorry about that. Pureed squash brains do that.

    Keeps the zombies away though.

    Still no reply from Ted. I might try calling him again, but I don't want to be annoying. Anyone check up on his facebook and then just forget to mention?

    Yes, call him!

    Do it.

    Do it.

    I don't have him on my fb or i'd poke him mercilessly.
    You have to do that too, Bri.

    Do it.

    Do it.

    Just talked to Ted. He's fine. He's lost his internet connection, so he won't be around a bit. He misses us, and has TRIED to get online, but hasn't had any success yet. I'm supposed to say:

    "Between car problems and everything else, I lost my interent, struggling to get it back." He's "still gainfully employed, but he's had to reduce his trolling to real life trolling events." He "trolls at work a lot." But "I do miss everybody."

    Sara - "I totally miss the sparkles, I need some sparkles, but I can't get none. Need sparkles, must have sparkles."

    Also, "give everyone hugs for me."

    So, that's good news. Ish. Ted will return, hopefully soon.

    He said he had things figured and that they were going to get better soon. I'm not sure he would level with me if it weren't true, though. I can call again soon and ask if there's anything he needs from us. He didn't have any other messages to pass on, so I hope that means he expects to be here himself, soon.

    Soon is such an evil word.

    Give him a week to get things sorted, and if he isn't good by then we can figure out how to drag him back. Nobody escapes the clutches of the Hounds...

    I escape for months at a time. It's this damn inhibitor chip that keeps bringing me back. Can't seem to make zombies on my own, gotta come here to get my fix.

    If you rep him pretty girl pictures, he responds usually. I don't know why.
