Boring choices. You should've ordered some rump-bunglers, some curly weasels, and a frosted pink monkey-detangler.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Guido from Cologne:

Hello Scott!
Avatar 3:05pm Chris from DC:

Hope you brought enough mollies for everyone.

Victim of Changes? I feel like one

I feel good!
  3:57pm JakeGould:

FWIW, I've just been doing occasional deep breathing anytime I can just because.
  3:57pm Brendan:

From the press secretary : Try not to think of it as a wall so much as any of various permanent upright constructions having a length much greater than the thickness and presenting a continuous surface except where pierced by doors, windows, etc.: used for shelter, protection, or privacy, or to subdivide interior space, to support floors, roofs, or the like, to retain earth, to fence in an area, etc.
  4:00pm Brendan:
