The Very Bad Man has lost, and we are relieved. Thanks for bearing with us while we took most of last week off: we didn’t want to compete for anyone’s attention during such an immensely nerve-wracking week. But now that it’s over, let’s take a moment together to enjoy some nice things!

That’s all for now: take a deep breath and hold your loved ones close, dear POMEs!
