Should 'anal retentive' have a hyphen?

Aryntha and Rai are on their way up here for a day or so, so I’m busily cleaning the place up and preparing for company. Not that the place is “dirty”, per se, but there were two bowls in the sink and I needed to put towels in the downstairs guest room.

We’ll probably have a bit of an artist’s jam tonight on the board room table. Everyone has been looking for an excuse to “art”, and tonight might just provide it. Yes, Aryntha and Rai are artsy folk too, though none of us have much time to do anything as frivolous as random drawing anymore… Real life and all of its associated stresses and whatnot really puts a damper on a person’s creative output.

We’ll see how it goes.

Wish us luck, eh?

Additionally, it has come to my attention that certain subversives are spreading rumors of the existence of a number between 6 and 8. Needless to say, they are extremely dangerous and should not be approached under any circumstances. Be especially careful with people asking questions such as “What is half of fourteen?” when we all know that fourteen is an odd number.
