You owe us Greg. You owe us big time!

The agile content team that we are hijacked the trending #GiveGregTheHoliday yesterday after finding out the office that the erstwhile Greg works in is directly opposite ours.

Anyway, the major takeaway from this is, thanks to this tweet from our own Chris Lake...

Greg got given free holiday to Vegas.

We ask for nothing else in return other than 45% of any winnings.

Slayer! On a ukulele! Stick with it…

Star Wars corner

Be prepared for this to be a regular feature from now until… ooh, at least 2020. Unless of course the first sequel turns out to be crap. What are the chances of that happening though?
