Dic 17 2010, 16:52 di Wormwood37Happy Friday, folks,
i am currently sitting in an all-day staff meeting. I'm supposed to be taking minutes. But it's boring. So I'm not. And then later, we're going to chain gastropub The Yard House where we will sit near their selection of 100 beers, but not be able to drink any of them. And then we have to do a gift exchange where everyone ends up with something they don't want instead of going home early. Pessimism party!
But I did an awesome show last night where lots of great folks requested and listened and called in. Best show in a long time. Thanks for hanging out, kids.
