RE: Random thoughts
Clickbait writing standards have really gone downhill over the past few years.

Clickbait: 22 Celebrities You Would Never Guess Are Muslims! Then goes on to list people including Mohammed Ali, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Yusuf Islam...let alone my favorite, "Malala". No really, a Pakistani schoolgirl is a Muslim? Who would've thought? (Also way braver than most will ever be, myself definitely included.)

Need to think of a witty signature.

I did, so it was successful, if poorly written. Sadcryface

I actually wouldn't mind click bait, if not for having to read through only four lines of the "article", while the next four lines of said article are on the next page ... and this continues through twenty-four pages! Dodgy

Just put it all on one fucking page! Angry

However, it has taught me that, what I went there to find initially, won't actually be there anyway.

I make a point of not listening to Christmas music unless it's close to the holiday, but am fine (it occurs to me that waiting until it's more seasonally appropriate might be nice, but I pretty much never actually do) with listening to Halloween music when the holiday isn't close.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

Halloween music? Hmm.... Monster Mash.... drawing a blank on anything else...

I listen to some obscure ones I happened to come across on Youtube. There's only like four or so.

(And I hate Monster Mash, for the record.)

I love Eli Bosnick, and it was a mistake to not get tickets to the GAM liveshow in Chicago recently.
