  1. Hi Heather, couldn’t find your email on this page, BUT I clicked your link (above) to the Void, thinking that I could find your email there… I was shocked to find you had linked to our nemesis, the *other* Void, who totally stole our name, those bitches. So, yeah, you might want to change that link.

    Unfortunately I work sunday evenings till 9 so I can’t make the dinner and I’m not sure about the fireworks… I’ll let you know. You now have my email, right?
