Damn. If I’d known I would have saved my fingernails for you. Cisplatin made them fall out like crazy.

IN the not too distant future
Next Sunday, A.D. –
There was a guy named Joel,
Not too different from you or me.

It’s Ferrero Roche all the way down. In a pyramid formation.

Here’s the latest, closest pic:

The bright spots are where the surface accumulation of dust and grit have been scraped away revealing the crystalline mantle through which shines the light of a central sunlet.
