So it's just you and me today. And that guy over there, who seems like he slept here last night. Just ignore him, even if he asks for spare change. We've got a lot of space to fill from now until the basketball game Enchantment Under The Sea Dance tonight, and I have a massive horde of word plays I've been saving for you guys. Show me your tips, and I'll find some beads for you in return. For those about to blog... FIRE!
