Can confirm, Katie is awesome. I kinda wanna see Renee do one too.

One of my favorite write-ups so far. I have to admit, I wondered “who is Katie Widen, I wonder is she is KatieUPS”?

They definitely are the same person :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks Spectrum for letting me do this! It was a lot of fun.
