And my boss is about to receive a very realistic notice that we will lose $134k in grant funds (the contact number on the letter just happens to be a very awkward phone sex hotline).

What else is going down today?

A report went out earlier that a city is changing their name to "Google," so google sent out a report today that they're changing their name to "Topeka."
