Well, as you can see, I have had some trouble deciding what to call today’s installment. Once I got finished brainstorming titles, I didn’t have any energy left to write an actual post.

I repeat: have you hugged your house today? (Not to be an alarmist, but IF YOU DON’T MAKE NICE-NICE WITH YOUR HOUSE IT COULD SUDDENLY TURN ON YOU…)
