no, my fingernails aren’t green because of boogers, but because i dyed. some coming-very-soon merino/cashmere/nylon Untastic Sock Yarn: as you can see, my nostrils are naturally booger-free, and there’s plenty of green yarn as evidence of the reason why my finger nails are green. i’m also going to put some manly spinning batts into the [...]
so, i think i’ve finally gotten my computer problems solved. stupid windows updates stupid crashed my stupid laptop, so expect to see more stupid updates from stupid me coming stupid soon.
