@thebeerzilla It's Grichuk. He swings at anything. Gotta make contact at some point. @RossFloate Australians think that BBQ sauce is an appropriate pizza topping. Why would I listen to you on this?
@RossFloate also, incorrect. The consistency of the crust and the tangy sauce make deep dish a singular and amazing experience. @RossFloate SUBTWEET @thebeerzilla Still here. Will probably leave before the 9th though.
Holy shit Meredith lineup.
@wordsandsequins Don't say the S word. It hurts too much as it is.Third airport, and time zone, in the last 20 hours. My brain has no idea what time it is or what I should be doing.

Next up: prawn ravioli with cuttlefish ink & a fennel and brown butter sauce. @Peters_Anthony @BrashHiggins Yep. It's stunning. @BrashHiggins Fucking gorgeous. @BrashHiggins

Retweeted by Rob Ruminski @RossFloate I have come so close so many times. Pretty much inevitable at this point. @trinnybopper Drooling, maybe, but I never mix food/drinks with sex. They are distinct pursuits that each deserve my full attention. @trinnybopper I was going to like this because I thought it was funny, but then realised that it might send the wrong idea...This album is so fucking good, guys: don't I listen to Windy & Carl more often? Meandering, shimmery space drones FTW.Dear @SpeakerRyan @SenateMajLdr: This is how it is done.
