I’m here all week folks! And by here, I mean somewhere else. And by all week, I mean just till Saturday. I have a game on Saturday. I’m on the Illinois State Curling Team. Now excuse me while I go polish my rock.
Oh, before I leave, I can’t forget to throw up my final installment of Marble Hornets. Just my luck it will probably end at 70. Well, if that’s the case, you’ll have to go over to Youtube to watch.
That’s all folks!
