As I promised, I have come on time this Monday with the Thursday Tales crosspost. There are just a couple stories this week but they are pretty good. I watched "The Strain" last night with icallshogun and my niece, and I'm pretty that if Eph doesn't stop having so many stupids, my head is going to laterally explore within the next three houses. (Important reference begins at :27)

If you've been watching "The Strain" and you, too, are frustrated by the stupids (why hasn't Eph taken a single cellphone photograph of ANYTHING for evidence? Why why why? I'm sorry. I must calm down before my Kopfgeschlagen flares up again.) take a load off with these fine stories, and if you have any of your own, please feel free to share them in the comments. Plus, Thursday you can look forward to a spankin' new writer (okay only new. I haven't got to spank them yet.) who joined us last week. It's way time for bed now, and if I don't wake up early-ish tomorrow, Nikoda is gonna be totes unhappy that I didn't bake that cake I was supposed to bake. Happy Monday, folks!
