Obviously a genie who identifies with its lamp a little too strongly.

This genie should take a hint from this earlier twabble:

Hmm, I must have been really tired when I wrote that!


Perhaps I should try another...

I kept a journal to remind of the times I spent at the Memory Erasing Clinic. Now, if only I could remember where I put it...

Such a heavy burden now to be the one,
Born to bear and read to all the details of our ending,
To write it down for all the world to see.

Unsurprisingly, although it would have been disappointing, there were no survivors to witness the post-apocalypse.

Joan answered the door in her bikini and led me to her field of strawberries. I do love to bask in the fruits of my neighbor.

It's not all bad. Sun is ok, mirrors work and no need for human blood. It's just... the kittens haunt me. And I need so many.
