    thank you SO much, emily!
    and @ChrisK for organizing secret santa in general, so emily and i could realize we were kindred spirits who felt left out for not participating! and @list for just existing just in general! okay, now that i'm good and emotional i'm gonna go watch the adele concert i DVRed. (if you don't shed a tear during "when we were young" you're a monster!)
