It's one of those days again. Friday the 13th, hmmm...I'm not one to be superstitious, and I've never actually had anything bad happen to me on the 13th, so lets just assume this is an auspicious sign. Oh, and I'd like to thank all of you that follow this blog, I enjoy doing it and I know people appreciate it. Appearently some people think that the process of following a blog is a complicated one, and think I've stopped doing the Gallery Crawl just because I don't send out emails anymore. I get asked all the time "Did you stop doing the Gallery Crawl?" It's rather frustrating. So, thank you for being tech-savvy, ya'll out there in TV land. This Friday I'm heading to Pilsen since I haven't been there in a while and I have to hit Rooms Gallery (it's on 18th, across from the gas station). See ya'll out there.
