A journey to the Forgotten Realms with funny people > self harm by presidential debate @spampinato_erin @ElectricLit Thanks for sharing! It's going to be a good time. @Casey_CAC Were you at my breakfast table this morning? @quamzibo @benasam Probably time I watched Waterworld so I can understand your essay @benasam Apparently @quamzibo wrote his SAT II essay about Waterworld and got a near perfect score

@JasonTougaw unfortunately I am watching all of themI would be so pissed is some lady took nine hours to tell this story at my weddingEvery episode of The Haunting of Bly Manor is worse than the last, except the one about Hannah, which is the best.
@RalucaTweets Yay! Congrats! @stephopitz It's on Netflix!Wow, The Witches is the true precursor to Ratatouille. The back half of the movie is all about a rodent in the kitchen. @jbakernyc @PenguinTeen @JenFerrariAdler @PWKidsBookshelf So wonderful! A thousand congratulations!

The only problem with having such amazing contributors for Horse Girls is none of them can blurb it.
