Next year, my older son starts highschool. They use MS Office 365, which I consider a tragic waste.

The plates are made of steel, and the keycaps are made of steel and brass.

I drew my girlfriend's dog (right) and framed it as a joke and she drew mine (left) in return so I framed it as well

Worf: People are always saying things to me.
