Love awaits at Route 401 exit 435, but you need to be quick or you’ll miss it.
At some point this week, you will be hit with an overwhelming urge to watch the hit 2013 film Turbo, starring Ryan Reynolds in the role of the eponymous protagonist, a small snail with big dreams.
Dream big. More specifically, dream of the boulder with a diameter of about 10 meters before it becomes a very immediate reality later this week.
Nothing of note will happen to you this week, but you just WAIT until next week. You’re in for a hell of a ride, kid.
This week, you will come to find that humans and spiders are really not all that different.
Heavy is the head that wears the crown. So too, you will find, is the head that becomes fully encased in lead.
The powerful scroll that will come into your possession this week is written in Sumerian, not Latin. To think otherwise would be a costly mistake, so remember that.
Be wary of tennis balls this week. They’re not particularly dangerous or anything but like be wary anyways.
The stars are tired of doing all the work in this relationship and will only give you a prediction once you sacrifice a lamb like everyone else does, you selfish jerk.
You’re going to want to watch The Revenant and take some notes while you’re at it.
Keep your head held high, no matter how long it takes for someone to find you struggling in that river.
Don’t meet your idols, especially if your idols are hungry sharks.
