  1. Ever Feel Like...?

    General Halloween
    Mostly I am missing out on virtual stuff. This year was so rough and everything took so long I completely missed out of doing a lot of popular blueprints for planet coaster on steam. Otherwise I am fine with it.

    I own zero santa hats. The only thing I would even consider doing that with is my Discworld Death but as he is 9 feet tall I'd have to sew him a santa outfit and I am not doing that.
