I’m going to be honest with you, folks, I’m feeling a little burned out these days. My hope is that it’ll all snap back into place here in the near future, but sometimes you just have to know when discretion is the better part of valor. As such, I’m opting to simply cut and paste the press release about Cubs Convention passes below rather than write something original.
All things considered, many of you will probably have fewer objections to that strategy. The one thing I’ll add is that my favorite parts of the weekend are the social media/blogger/podcaster gathering at Lizzle McNeill’s on Friday night and the Unconventional gathering at Gman Saturday night. More to come on those as the time draws nigh.
