  • 01:50:14: @GinaGlenn looks fabulous. And congratulations.
  • 02:01:52: So far the broccoli/kohlrabi votes are pretty much evenly split. Although several of you think "rutabaga" is funnier than either.
  • 02:12:19: (Okay. The line now reads) Java: "Java dreams of giant vegetables. Chiefly rutabaga and unusually knobbly turnips. But not Broccoli."

  • 03:35:53: @whittles did you meet Kitty AKA @neverwear? (She might have fed you.)
