Someone really ought to do a modern version of The Night Before Christmas.
Oh, wait. Does the word 'cacodemoniacal' ring a bell?

Jobless, so I couldn't buy a whole turkey, but there was a discount on bags of parts. These toes didn't come from a turkey.

Yes! Yes, great Thanksgiving Twabble.
You never do want to inspect that stuffed bag of innards too closely.

The girl plays alone in the street. She's the happiest girl in the world. After all, there's still 3 hours before sunset.

At first we thought sewer leak. But seems the creature's last victim had a stomach bug making it easier to find it's lair.

You think that because the machines are made of people that they aren't real. That the Matrix isn't real. Now take a pill.

We were caught off guard by the sailor man's suicide. I wish we'd listened when he told us that he couldn't stands no more.

The last man to live stares longingly back over the stars, racing light itself for one last glimpse of his long lost love.


Hello everyone! Long time listener, first time writer, many-a-time insomniac. Usually not quite as bleak. I love how the twabble format forces me to think about every letter! Feedback welcome.

Welcome aboard, Monday!

I feel the title of that one should be: "Love is a relative term" :wink:

The workshop was empty except for the freezers and power tools. Darren and Frank sat across from one another in silence.
