You may be wondering why there is a slight dearth of activity on memphisflyer.com today. Or you just may be waiting for the return of Tommy V (not gonna happen, parenthetically speaking). The dirty truth is that today is a very special day around our office. Yep, it's clean-up day, an annual ritual during which the staffs of the Flyer, Memphis Magazine, Memphis Parent, and MBQ come to work in shorts and T-shirts and spend half the day totally douching the office — wiping off the dust on cubicle walls, spritzing copy machines with Lysol, tossing a year's worth of accumulated newspapers and magazines, a bazillion press releases, 4,000 horrible music CDs into recycling bins. Like that. After it's over, we all repair to an un-disclosable location for a pool party and lots of beverages. Sort of like an office Christmas party in August.
In the meantime, talk amongst yourselves. Squabble, if you like. We're watching, but we're also sweaty and thirsty, and, to quote the immortal Tim Sampson, we don't know you (most of you) and we don't care what you do.
