Of course she would. She's probably a distant or not-so-distant relative.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

I’ve only seen the first ep of the new Duck Tales but this (spoiler) makes me kinda absurdly happy.

England's survival guaranteed

I'm not a superstitious woman, but I can't help but see this as a good omen.

So I'm right now talking to you from my badass brand new computer. Just wanted to say that because I'm totally happy about it.

There's nothing in particular I have in mind. My previous PC is rather old and had been accumulating a bunch of small grievances that made it harder to deal with. I'm hoping to make music production easier, and also play more modern games more smoothly. :)

Behold his works, ye mighty...

Somebody once told me
His works, he'd like to show me
He thought they'd fill me with awe and dread

He was looking kind of dumb
Just two legs out in the sun
And his visage a broken stone head

Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Statues are built and they hit the ground crumbling
"Didn't make sense not to build real high!"
Though naught is left but the desert sky

"So much I've done for you to see!
So what's wrong with looking upon me?"

We'll never know what the king shewed
We only know what the man hewed

Hey now, King of Kings now, built to last now, heyday
Hey now, all is gone now, fell to naught now, decay
Nothing beside remains
Only level sands stretch away
Our choicest plans have fallen through, our airiest castles tumbled over, because of lines we neatly drew and later neatly stumbled over.

Somewhere, Adrian Veidt is wondering if maybe he didn't kill enough people.
