Trust me, if you miss this you're going to be very very sad."

Nobody here is gonna go anywhere. It's just gonna be sitting at home and pouting about how nobody could get Quicksand tickets.

Oooof, ugly ass night out. And also shitty weather.

But I'm sure the trendies will really be interested in that Mandingo thing going on, eh? Eh? ;)
