Because I want to tell Shiny Red Robot, Everything Is Shiny, and Ubertrout how much I love and appreciate them.
Seriously, these three have been so wonderful and kind and supportive of me over the past week. They kept me sane while my parents were here (though my parents were surprisingly supportive and encouraging, which was more than a little awesome.), letting me make snarky comments at them instead of the parents, which wouldn't have gone over well. Listening to my bemusement as my father proceeded to clean my kitchen and my mother cleaned my tub because they thought "I could use a little bit of extra help right now."
So thank you, for being there, for supporting me, and for telling me what I need to hear at the exact right times. Y'all are the best, and I am virtually sending each of you this adorable puppy with a rose and a bowtie. Because that's how much cute and joy you deserve.
