What’s New In Luvvies – 11/16/18

Things have been super crazy around here lately. In addition to working overtime at my regular job and some fun activities away from the house, I was laid up for about a week with a massive migraine, which really put a damper on my order fulfillment and preparations for the December Steel City Con.

It’s like being a kid in a candy store. I go there for one thing and end up with 15 more things that I had no intention of buying and may never use, but they looked cool.

So by the time I check out, I kind of look like the poor boy from “Matilda” who ate all the chocolate cake.
