How are things?

I heard that all the cool kids over there are tanning model boats. I think it sounds a little short, but maybe I'll give it a try.

I just got a new pet rat! I named it Gavin. Mom says I can keep him if I look after him and laminate him every day. She said if I get sick of him, she knows a really nice farm where he can go and live, so there's really no pressure.
