1.) Change of plans
OK, instead of hitting the club this Thursday, I've decided to do kara-oke instead. And I think we've put it off long enough: karaoke, this Thursday, at Nuzback's. (This is, in theory, the same gruop that ussed to spin at My Way. We shall see.) I know it's short notice, but hopefully some of y'all can make it.

2.) Election-watching
Anyone interested in hanging out at our place tonight for results watching (and Daily Show watching)? It's a little messy, but not terrible. Drop me a line.
