@vegancakery @Langham_London @cherish_finden exciting! I'm staying there this weekend so I'm psyched :D
@Langham_London --this weekend and I'm really disappointed. The spa was a major reason I chose the hotel, too late to change now. @Langham_London what happened? The Chuan Spa is closed now -- and those of us who made advance reservations weren't notified? Checking in-- @vegancakery @Langham_London @cherish_finden is this a thing? can you really do a vegan tea at the Langham or was that a special event? @oiselle that's a sexist saying you guys are better than that!For four years starting 1/20/16? Any takers? (Just kidding, stay awake and fight for what's right and what's kind) @JackKornfield a wonderful reminder thank you

This went somewhere I wasn't expecting at first. Worth a full read. As its author characterizes it -- chilling. @TGF_William ... that's my secret sauce anyway :D @TGF_William ...and you also factor in that everyone is rested from the break so people who have injuries do better in Aus than NYC for ex @TGF_William the #AusOpen is easiest for me to do good brackets for because you get a pretty clear idea from the start of year tourneys...The America We Lost When Trump Won @TGF_William ha ha they don't call me a futurist for nothing!I guess I'm dumb dumb dumb then! 🤗 @mjandersen I hope you brought your own syrup up ha ha call back @mjandersen jealousTHIS!👇👇👇👇👇
