Happy New Year Jeff!
JEFF prepared a 2012 annual report for his blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 6 years to get that many views.
Since stats are boring, JEFF also prepared a New Years themed sketch.

Oh, that’s fast.

me through. What are we going to
I think we have to just ride this
Easy for you to say.
Oh, here we go again. I think I’m
having a heart attack.
Sit down Mark.
Mark sits, still on hold.
You are not having a heart attack.
But we have to do something. I have
to get out of here!
You know I lost a million dollars
Mark stops short.
What? Are you serious?
It’s not the sort of thing I joke
Jesus. What happened?
Someone bet on the wrong horse, so
My God. What are you going to do?
Cut my losses. Nothing else to do.
Can’t anyone be held accountable?
Yes? Five hours. Really? Isn’t
there anything you can do? I
understand you’re getting another
call, but– hello?
Mark lowers his phone.
You okay there? Might as well get
Harvey begins untying his shoes.
Mark watches and then nervously undoes one of his own.
Did you really…
I’m so sorry.
Harvey leans against the wall and closes his eyes.
Mark thinks for a moment.
Let me just try something.
I’m warning you, I don’t know CPR.
Hello? Yeah hi Rich, how are you?
Well, I’m in an elevator at 712

Yeah. Ooh, that was a bad idea.
Mark, stay with me.
Yeah, yeah I’m here.

Mark undoes another shoe. He’s still a little shaky.
Still, half an hour?
Harvey takes off his coat.
