Apologies for coughing into the mic, guys. I hope it didn't sound too gross! It felt gross!
Avatar 9:36pm -andrew-:

Eh, it happens. Those are the worst though, when they feel as gross as they sound.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm DJ PB:

@Kari A DJ saved your life tonight! I may be going to Lucky 7s here in JC after the show but that's a bar, not a diner. Just look for the most handsome guy in the room (and ask him to point me out to you).
