  • pugnacity: well i've been rather pi$$ed @ff lately at the unfairness of job's burdens and people who should know what they're doing and don't. so i guess i am feeling belligerent and combative. bring it on. that's all i've got to say. i know myself better than anyone else. i've been with myself longer.
