I could snooze through an entire Alice in Chains set NO PROBLEMO - but why have the heavens chosen September 18th (OF ALL DAYS!!!!) for hunk central (hello again Mr. Marino - it's been so long since I've spoken about you) to land at my doorstep.
DON'T THEY KNOW THAT THAT WILL BE THE DAY THAT I ATTEMPT TO GUSSY MYSELF UP, TROMP DOWN THE AISLE, AND MARRY THE MAN OF MY DREAMS!?!??!
I wonder what my ultra conservative mother would do if I somehow bribed Mastodon into crashing the reception.
