The Search for Generation X

The "middle child" strikes back

Untitled (or anywhere but)

So… this is my attempt to justify paying the annual fee for this website. This has been a crazy year. It seems like I say that every year. We are days away from 2022 and I don’t know if I should be breathing a sigh of relief that it is almost over or I should just hide under the bed and wait for “the purge”.
