IMPORTANT FOR TONIGHT'S EVENT: DVD Remote

Does anyone know if the DVD player has a remote control for it?

Methinks the DVD player currently wired up is different from the one yesterday. Why was it switched does anyone know?

Hmmmm, so many mysteries.

Help needed tonight

Do you want to make a gay man very happy?

There are two ways. One would be to help me out in the kitchen today. We need people 5-10, then night shifts too. Give us a call if you can help.

The second...you're too young to know.
