Happy early Friday, everyone. At least I think most of you are going to take some vacation or PTO tomorrow, so you can have a nice four day weekend. I, for one, don’t have any plans as of yet for the 4th, but I imagine whatever I end up doing will involve cooking some kind of meat on a smoker or grill, and copious amounts of beer and whiskey. I know patphish is looking forward to his annual farwurk extravaganza, and I hear that Trey is similarly excited to watch shit blow up. What say the rest of you? Links and such after the jump.
