Ryan Meili is Awesome. Deal With It.

He’s going to @%$#ing murder me for this. But I don’t care. In fact, that’s just one of the reasons Ryan is one of my good friends: he’s super easy to get along with and gets over things quick. I (to the shock and surprise of many, I’m sure) am not really skilled at either. […]
