A Pathetic Weekend Update

Reminder: We only fail to report the weekend’s events because we were not told of the weekend’s events. This is a two-way street, dudes, and while we may personally know about certain events, we are not privy to write about them on public forum unless you tell us we can. (I know, despite the enormous, marvelous, toilsome, thankless effort one might think maintaining this blog is, we do, in fact, have lives of our own.) We don’t want to get anyone in trouble.*

Just drop us a line at wesleying@gmail. Hell, you want to talk for whatever reason, just drop us a line. We love you.
