Not sure what I'm doing, since

Love my fianceé.

Heard some Wizard Rock,
Played a fantasy card game...
I'm such a huge nerd.

"What do you guys think?"
Long awkward silence, blank stares,
"Umm...uhhh...well...umm..." shrug.

I Was A Little Bit Afraid That Shelley Was Going To Have A Heat Stroke


Zoo: sweltering.
Temperature was between
Fire and solar flare.
