*****BIG ANNOUNCEMENT*****

Let’s set the scene…

Disclaimer: Mike does not like french bulldogs and says that he never will.

The time: Wednesday, 8/24/11, 11:04PM

The place: My apartment, and an undisclosed location elsewhere

The players: Me and Mike

Aug 24, 2011. A day that will live in infamy.
