  1. Aw MAN, I might actually get to a WPM for the first time ever. Loving being an office girl.

  2. Jim says:

    I’ve not been to one in ages, they keep happening when I’ve ran out of money. Hating being a jobless bum.

  3. CRAIG says:

    I’m going to the Two Winners show, should be amazing and means I can finally pick up the Scottish Enlightenment’s album. I’ve never heard Mitchell Museum or Dormant Figure so that should be interesting as well

  4. Jim says:

    Ah, excellent Craig! Haven’t heard Dormant Figure myself either, but love Mitchell Museum. Enjoy.
