I’m upgrading my blog software right now, so I’ve turned off comments temporarily. Hopefully everything will go smoothly and you’ll never noticed the transition on the front end. But if everything goes pear-shaped (just like my figure), that’s probably why.

It’s a bit larger than the size of my fist and I think the name starts with a “ch” sound. Now, one may ask, why don’t you just check your receipt for the name of the item? Well…I went through the self-checkout lane. I tried looking [...]
