This has been, without a shred of doubt, the craziest week of my life. As I wind down my first week as a Googler, all I can think about is kicking back this weekend with a cold beer. :)

I think more than a handful of you can relate, no?

    Crazy busy week at work, and I only had a 4 day week.  It's very good to kick back with that beer though, along with trashy TV and a little processing.  

    Meanwhile, I'm really liking this watery graveyard.

    No, I can't relate at all – it takes way more than a single beer for me… And congrats on your switch to the dark side the only side Google… ;)

    really like this one +Brian Matiash – very much like a graveyard, the toning of the image is perfect for it.
