    I am alternately good and terrible on several-hourly basis…

    It’s waaaay too hot!

    Ok, no, not that bad…

    Never mind, SUPER DEATH HOT again!

    Your foodstamps are renewed for a year.

    Haha, just kidding, why would you think that was true just because we said so? NO FOOD STAMPS FOR YOU!!!

    Ok, well, actually, you did all the things we told you to, so your case is fine. Except no one updated the system to reflect that, and the information that makes it so is SOOPER SEKRIT and viewable only by supervisors, so obviously we closed your case and didn’t tell you, because Deep Magic. So you can have your benenfits back, but not for another day. It’s not like food is important or anything….

    And you have money. And credit.

    Except the payment from the real money to the credit line didn’t go through quickly, so you impulsively and extravagantly ordered bookshelves so the kids have a place to put their books,and now there’s no money to pay for the car insurance and maybe the birthday party?

    Ok but check from parents to bank and now mostly ok for at least a few days. At least until after the BIRTHDAY PARTY OF 10 YEAR OLD BOY MADNESS.

    So, breathe.

    Roller coaster, Lonespark! Only much less enjoyable.

    Hey, you know what I could do? Send a thing to the Slacktiverse signal boost! What a novel idea!

    Hi. I am babysitting a gecko. I have to feed him live crickets. The crickets need to be pre-treated with a dusting of calcium and vitamin D3. Have you ever tried to shake-and-bake live crickets?
