Did I miss anything? Probably. The only way I was able to keep myself awake and focused on writing this entry was to listen to Fall Out Boy's "Sugar, We're Goin' Down," Hampton the Hampter's "Even Hamsters Fall in Love," and Mika's "Happy Ending" on constant shuffle. It's been one of those days. (I would like to point out here, in regards to the penultimate entry, that the beautiful thing about YouTube is that you don't have to watch the videos.)
So, leave whatever I missed in the comments!
