Grim Fandango title card

Grim Fandango title card

Remember how I said last time that crunch mode was kind of fun? Well, it’s not anymore. The fun has left me, and I am left here with the part of me that doesn’t like to have fun. Bad Tim has taken over. I haven’t seen my house in the daylight since October. I actually left the office last night before the security lights in the parking lot went out, but only because it started to rain, and I knew my driver’s side window was down. I found myself trying to dry the seats off with old Taco Bell napkins at 10:00. The water in the carpet made everything smell like mold.
