Five Star Friday: Edition #45

Dear Intertubes:

Sometimes you beg to be kicked in the butt with steel-toed boots, and sometimes you make me sad that I can't gather you up and give you a good snuggle. I am sitting in my living room, watching the sun slowly purple the sky with morning light, and drinking in your stories. It's not even fully day yet, and I've laughed, wept, nodded with understanding, and raised an eyebrow. Oh, yes, I even enjoy a good eyebrow-raising. Thanks for being the cream in my coffee.

Schmutzie.
