Lucas told me that he went over to the new neighbors’ house the other day and he was helping unpack the books and put them on the shelves.

And I so wanted it to be weird and awkward next week.” He then responded with… “Don’t worry. I can still make it awkward. I can make it awkward (left eyebrow raised) allllllllllll coffee long.” And now I have something to tell you about next week after I send him this beauty:

And then Did Obama say that Arcane Legions is being taught as a new subject in school? And Whoa! Obama said if you play Arcane Legions you could become a doctor, lawyer, police officer, architect, professional fantasy football player, gynecologist, engineer, IT support specialist, mayor, senator, supreme court justice, and maybe even president. That’s right…. I’m THAT guy. Oh and here:
