Lemon and Rocket


I’ll, um, probably be taking a few days off social media (or simply not looking at replies) since a particular thread went quasi-viral. (Don’t worry, it was reply-locked; I have been a woman on the internet for long enough to practice some basic self-protection.) But it’s Friday, which means two things: a Friday Photo post, and there’s D&D tonight.1

Anyway, way back on New Year’s Eve2 I decided to make my first-ever lemon pig, a blurry photo of which I now offer for your amusement. Behind him (his name is Punkin, don’t ask) is the Rocket figurine the Princess brought back from Hawaii for me.

“Of all the Guardians,” she said, “I think you’re most like him.”

I mean, I’d prefer to be Gamora, but we all know I’m a filthy-mouthed raccoon with a love of firepower, penchant for mayhem, and a million self-defensive reflexes instead. No shame in admitting what one is.

It is, after all, the first step in trying to be better.

So. Punkin and Rocket bid you a happy New Year, and beg you to wash your hands, wear your mask, hydrate, take a deep breath, and look after yourself (and each other) as best you can.

Interesting times certainly are… interesting, aren’t they.

See you next week, beloveds.

Notes

  1. I happen to be the one whose job it is to post weird stuff from our D&D game online, so that’s gonna be fun.
  2. Remember, last week, a hundred years and several impeachable offenses ago? Good times, man. Good times.
