Halloooooo all, we have arrived at the hump. Please allow your attendant to secure the bar to your seat and we ask that you do not stand up for the duration of the ride. If at any time you feel yourself slipping into the gravity of the loops and whirls of life, please know that in no way will Whitenoise or its associates indemnify you suckers who came along for the ride.

Dear friends, mid-week is upon us. How are you faring?
