Seconds of Today

Lotta kid sickness 'round these parts. Which means I've watched more cartoons than are generally advisable for any human being still hoping to converse intelligently in adult circles. But seriously, have I ever even conversed intelligently in adult circles? Do I even have an adult circle to call my own? Not really. Unless Facebook counts.
