This is it.
My thanks to everyone who has been so incredibly supportive through this process--I won't make a list here, because I need to prepare and because I'll end up leaving tons of people off the list, but it includes Mark, Meiyin, Shanta, Oskar, Nicole, Bob, Tony, Susie, Shanta, Matthew, Tommy, Reggie, Heidi, Sheila, and most assuredly Jean-Michele. (I guess I did make a list. Ah well.)
I'll see you all on the other side,
PS: For those hoping to get in; I think it's not impossible, but you will definitely want to arrive very early. Best of luck!
