My Week in Review – ROW80 Check-In 1

Hello gentle reader,

It is time for the first check-in of this second round! I hope you had a good and productive week…

Quote of the Week

Yes, it’s terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true, the bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies, and everybody lives happily ever after.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer (Season 2, Episode 7 “Lie To Me”)
