Re: 1190: "Time"

Caught up - just in time for coma. Oh, the eternal catching up on this needle-pulled thingy... I sympathize with Blitzgirl, but have no words of encouragement for her.

Time to succumb to coma and wake up in the past. I may not be reliving the same day over and over again, but being stuck in the past feels just as daunting. Arthur Philip Dent agrees (quoting off the top of my head here): "The regular early morning yell of horror was the sound of Arthur Dent w...
