Alex actually had the audacity to go on vacation, so I’m on my own for a couple weeks. I’ve tried sending him away in the past, but he just keeps coming back. Apparently he passed out in a beach chair and woke to find “Return to Sender” tattooed on his chest. I think someone even convinced the postal service to reverse the charges. Ingrates.

Anyway, new year, new run. Don’t expect Sebastian’s luck to change though. Sorry, my heart didn’t grow three sizes this past holiday (anyone who thinks otherwise obviously hasn’t been reading these things). That said, hope you all had a happy holiday and are buckled in for even more hijinx this year!
