Well, I had been down to 33 tabs. And then I decided to read through my DW reading page which - my bad - it seems I hadn't checked in the better part of a week.

And now I have 136 open tabs, 5537 of which are about why Donald Trump sucks. A whole new batch of articles. I couldn't keep up even if I had tried, which this week, apparently I didn't.

I ought to take a news break, but that never actually helps. I just vaguely worry that something cataclysmic is happening that I don't know about.

Don't worry, I'll work my way through these. Somehow. It may involve copious intake of soda, though.
