Thank you, all. This place was the friendliest, funniest, smartest, kindest place on the Internet, and I got involved at a moment when I desperately needed all of the above.

I hope to see you all on Twitter ( @bread_n_roses ) and Slack. If any one wants to join the Toastie Trying to Conceive Googlegroup, it's at toastoneggs.

To the sea.

Seriously, did any of you spend a lot of your childhood in a state of permanent anger at the existence of modernity? Like, cars and paved roads and sneakers made me SO MAD. I wanted to live in my fake-historical / fantasy world, which was full of fluttering gowns and dirt roads and horses and the like. Everything I saw that didn't fit offended me.
