I know who's back already. Ugh. No, I haven't watched it.

So, for most of the day, I've had a weird feeling of wanting to work on Invincible for some reason...

Utterly exhausted. And I still haven't finished the dang thing, and I have my first class in three hours. I'm guessing I'm not going to be getting any sleep until sometime this afternoon....
