Fever in the Morning, Fever in the Evening, Fever in the Dead of Night

Hey, hey, hey, kiddies!

Welcome to the first day of the next year of the rest of this blog!

(Yeah, I’m still giddy over yesterday’s one-year bloggiversary. Twelve whole months of ridiculous drivel. Hardly seems possible, what with this straightjacket and everything, eh?)
