*My goal is defined by completely finishing a book, front to back. Unfortunately, this rules out a lot of books assigned for classes based on the sole fact I only read specific sections of those books, not the whole thing. I've read parts of more than 50 books, just not 50 whole books.

I thought you were kidding about this video! Would that be considered "handsie"?

I like it best when the second otter comes back and reaches for the other. I just about died.

I KNOW! It's so cute. Katie, we could be floating otters, holding hands.

That was me, Lindsay.

OK, wait. If the hangovers are down 500%, that would mean that you had some number of hangovers last year, and you now have 5 times that number less, which should give you negative four times the number from last year hangovers this year. THIS MAKES NO SENSE.
