Hello and Happy Friday ’Noisers. It’s finally here! Woo-hoo! It always feels just a little better to get to the end of the week, even if we do still have to go to work today. I mean, we all know it’s like, the law that we have to be completely useless after 3pm if we’re going to maintain a modicum of self-respect.

Of course it’s also National Holy Crap I Gotta Go To The Post Office! Day here in the States. Them interwebz have done quite a bit to alleviate the mayhem, but damned if I want to be near a mailbox today. Taxes make people crazy. Like, “I’m gonna let some bridges fall down to save an extra fourteen bucks a month” type crazy, yeah, but also “panic like a mofo because I waited until the last minute” crazy too. This, of all the days in the year, is the one in which Math Is The Devil the most.

Y’all stop in and pay your dues to the Intellectual Commerce Gods, or just make excuses and try to look contrite. Whichever it is, we’ll have the weekend to recover, so might as well lay it all out on the table.
