Darling du Jour: I swallowed, listening to Tom's father ramble on about what he's done in life, what he has put together for his family, how his own father never thought he'd be anything—certainly not a housemaster—and that it was all too much and now there was nothing left to gain. I listened hard as he said it, trying to mishear the words, catch something in the background. Nothing.

Awesome card is right! A walk in the park sounds like a walk in the park. And TIe the Rope - don't get suicidal on me. Live for the magnet.

"Tie the Rope," despite its meaning, is a very catchy and upbeat song. I have to play it LOUD! Yay, magnet. I now have a sushi magnet and a Scrabble one. Next...a dragon magnet?
