on a lighter note. I just got a whiff of chocolate cake batter.
it’s almost midnight and nobody’s made chocolate cake in years. this household prefers yellow cake. we don’t even have most of what’s needed for chocolate cake.
this isn’t even a whiff anymore; it’s a permeating smell that’s not quite there, but at the same time undeniable.
okay nose, whatever.

I think people are probably reading too much into Bill calling Grenda a monster….
She’s not literally a monster; she’s holding him back from his goal of destroying the book, and he takes offense to that. It’s hilarious irony considering who Bill is, and his deadpan expression as he says it adds to the comedic effect.
It strikes me as being really similar to GLaDOS in Portal 2; she calls Chell a monster, but it’s definitely GLaDOS that’s been cruel and downright murderous— what would be considered monstrous by most people.
These hugely powerful antagonists calling regular people monsters is just comedy, and while there might be more to Grenda than we know (who knows with this show, am i right?), I don’t think Bill’s comment should be taken as a reflection of that.
That’s just how I see things anyway *shrugs*
