In case you’re wondering: 25% of us are unemployed, 25% of us work in entertainment so we’re pretty much unemployed, 25% of us work for the city and 25% of us just flat out took the day off from our boring jobs to take part in something we haven’t seen in seven long years. 100% of us are die hard fans and we can’t wait to do this again next year.
