Don’t know if you heard.

It’s a lot of mush, a lot of nothing, a lot of dead time where not a lot goes on. Plus, we knew the outcome, so it’s not like anything you saw last night should’ve surprised you. What surprised me though was sometimes I wonder whether or not people actually read my site, or they play the “telephone” game with friends and things get completely lost in translation.
