Gettin’ down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend
Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah)

Do a little partying for me while you’re at it. I’ll be getting myself in gear for SMX East next week. Lisa Buyer and I have committed ourselves (and I do mean straight jacket committed) to liveblogging 15 sessions during the week.
