More seriously, thanks y’all for being great fun and such good sports. We’ll have a fun day, but the most important thing is that our two blogs together raised a lot of money for two excellent charities. We’ll try to behave ourselves and we’ll be sure to return the keys to your fine site to your normal team of editors and writers at the end of the day. Let the Elneny Boogaloo begin!
