Sully's was too rectangular but get the other TV screens working and
I'd be happy to be back there.

If you're at work meeting up with Carl is pretty easy. He usually
tries to get me to help him and then I usually try to get some other
person at work to help with me. This doesn't always work because I am
a workaholic and can't leave early, or get cranky because there will
be no parking and there is no wheelie cart thing to help with heavy
stuff.... FIXED! now that we got one at a thrift store.

also almost got a sweet equipment bag with headphones and other stuff
in it, but when we brought it buy to get priced we learned that an
employee was filming stuff and accidentally left his bag in the
luggage area.

Oh and if we have enough people to help at work I can try to host
again. It's a bit crazy if I try to do all of it myself.
