Good afternoon, everyone, it's 12:12pm. Sorry for being late today, but I was having technical issues with my computer, and the good news is, they're all resolved now :). I had a real old computer monitor and I had to replace it. Anyway, man is it hot out there. I couldn't even breathe when I was outside.
