Jessica Lange, particularly, is absolutely brilliant in American Horror Story: Coven. It’s a mystery to me why I slept on this so long. Even the concept of having the same actors play different characters is right up my street, like some kind of inverse doctor who.

today seems to be "hi i am a cop and proud! looking forward to 'tooting' with you folks he he he" "hi i'm an investment banker - cool eh? can't wait to do lots of toots with you, my new pals!"

a centaur is a kind of special horse with 100 legs

i'm not 100% convinced it's the healthiest thing in the world but i have now found my dream takeaway:

the new meme is "regular horse", the horse with no distinguishing characteristics or habits
