"A motto I've adopted is, if at first you don't succeed, hide all evidence that you ever tried."
— Billy Collins (former U.S. Poet Laureate)


Runawaymetaphor enjoys angst-filled pauses, judiciously chosen (but ultimately gratuitous) pop culture references, and thoughtful feedback.

Also, she doesn't really do 'cheery' all particularly well. But if you need a bit of silver lining to go with the darkness, you should read Alpha Flyer. It's what Runawaymetaphor does when her angst gets away from her. ;-)
