Why are you distracting me with Hozier. He's got an awesome voice, too, but not the same looks. Nor accent.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Who on EF taught me the word 'albeit' ?

Never heard it before and now it pops up in all my posts - when suitable - ..... my beloved 'although' has been washed out of my brain.


edit: Tom. Who else. Well my brain at least knows who it gets washed by.

You should try therapy? Albeit not the best solution ?

Why does everything expire before I can consume it?

I, too, seek to devour living souls.

In order to preserve their life force, it is necessary to sustain them after harvesting. A little bread and water should be sufficient. Perhaps the occasional sweetmeat on high days. It is not necessary to provide victuals of a high quality, as we only speak of a matter of days or weeks.

How is your Master these days, by the way? Mine is most pleased with me.

I was going to make tuna pasta for dinner tonight - then discovered I don't have any tuna. Hopefully pink salmon will work just as well.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I wasted most of this lovely day on sleeping. Now I'm wide awake.

So the world gets my hotel reservations, appointment requests, passport orders, tax-complaints .... LOL, I sure hope - for them - they turn off their email alerts at night.
