And now, I have become Hank, the writer of comics

Secret Santa info: If you don't know me well, General.Hankins is my twin brother. He's cool. I like outdoorsy stuff and the Northern Lights. Also, The Dresden Files, Monster Hunter International, and Roadkill (the Automotive YouTube show)!

Scratch what I said, earlier, I've got it: Don McLean, either "Vincent" or "Empty Chairs".
I don't know; to me, the backing music plays like light acoustic classic rock pieces, like Jefferson Airplane's "Coming Back To Me", Neil Young's "Heart of Gold", or, most famously, The Beatles' "A Day In The Life".

However the melody would actually sound, they're beautiful lyrics, Gibson.
This is me, always.

Healy makes for a better alarm clock than any electric one I've ever purchased.
Aggro all the things, indeed.
Lol I've been wearing glasses since I was four. I got used to eye doctors early on. Though, I guess if you've never experienced it before, it'd be a little freaky. Lol
It's a pretty badass chapter cover, though, so she can't be too mad about being g ignored.
The man simply does not care about your plight, Aya.

lol I like this guy
"Damn, Darla, bringing it back with the white Vans....."
The answer is always potato.
@Falconer: Only if it's on the schedule!
She could have left a note behind for her. Just a thought.
I..... don't have high hopes for our bespectacled demon friend here.
Woo! Welcome back, Mayel!
Well, teenage me thought loaning my brother my driver's license was a good idea, so...
This whole chapter reminds me of "Dead Flowers", by the Rolling Stones. The only difference is Lexi isn't wealthy, though I'm led to believe she was the primary breadwinner in that household, so it still applies.
Seconding Mitchell on this one!
This happens to me often. It's even worse, now that I have a Kindle app on my phone:

"Hey, Sergeant Hankins, can I-"

(Angrily looks up from phone, lashes out on poor, unsuspecting airman) "WHAAAAAAT?!?!"

@Falconer: If you can get access to the breaker and shut it off, then you and James can do this. (Don't do this with the power to that outlet on, unless you want more arc-y sparky):

After shutting off the breaker:
1) Check to make sure power to outlet is off. You could spend $20 on a cheap multimeter, but the really cheap and easy way to check is to plug something in, like your phone charger, and then go flip off the breaker. If your phone is not charging, the circuit is off.

2) Remove faceplate to outlet. Should be a single screw holding it to the outlet.

3) Undo the two screws holding the outlet to the electrical box in the wall. Should be one on top and one on bottom. Once done, gently pull the outlet out of the box.

4) Before disconnecting wires, note the following:

For a three-pin outlet (standard outlet), wiring color code is as follows:
-Hot Wire (Power-carrying wire)=Any color but white, green, or bare copper
-Neutral Wire (Return)= White
-Ground Wire (safety wire)= Green or bare wire

As you look at the outlet, you'll see that the outlet has different colored screws: two brass on one side, two stainless steel screws on the other, and on the bottom, a green screw. Your hot(s) go to the brass screws, the neutral(s) to the stainless screws, and the ground to the green screw. Or, as I like to say, "Gold is Hot, Silver is Not, and Green is Ground." Just remember that, and you'll be okay.

Anyway, that said, disconnect the wires from.the old outlet. Discard old outlet.

5) Attach wires to new outlet. Remember, hots to gold, silver to neutral, green or bare wire to ground.

6) Follow steps 2-3 in reverse order to mount the new outlet in the wall. If the plastic faceplate is broken too, this would be a good time to replace it.

7) Once new outlet is in the wall, turn on breaker and test to see if it works. Again, you can do this by plugging in something, or if you want to spend the money, you can check it with a voltmeter.

And that's literally it! Hope that helps!
