Well, you can probably tell what kind of day it's been over here, in that: You couldn't see a single bit of work we did today after 12:30. We're not sure what happened, and, frankly, we're not sure we want to. Assuming the earth commences rotating again around here again, Skeets will be handling the weekend shift. We're going to go breathe into a paper bag for a while until we calm down, hopefully by Monday.


The picture is of Band Of Horses, whose album we're listening to right now and is pretty much the only thing that could cheer us up. See you Monday. Probably.
