Well folks, we did it; together we made it through an entire year of random online ramblings. WordPress just notified me that it’s my one year anniversary this week! We’re 37 posts in and, while things have slowed a little, I think it’s still coming along nicely. Find out how we’re celebrating!
Well, another epic kickball season has come to a close, and while we once again delivered the riveting beer-fueled excitement our fans have come to expect over the years – earning a berth in the consolation playoffs, and immediately advancing to the final round with a victory by forfeit Yeah, so now what?
Morning folks. Good to see you. I find myself coming to you once again from the comfort of an airport terminal, which seems to be my preferred writing locale lately. It’s a little loud, but it could be worse – I’m told Delta’s systems were hacked this morning, and those passengers are going nowhere fast; suckers! This actually has nothing to do with the story
