@locust9 I loved your performance in Ghost Story. @suellentrop Always a feud between those too. (Would I be taking it too far to call it a "beef?" I probably would.) @suellentrop Ah, yes, the two best known cuisines in America, Iowa BBQ and Colorado BBQ.... @HazelMonforton Hazel Monforton: a woman so powerful even her naps have origin stories. @Imp314 Aw, thanks man, hope you are well.
