@fairuza Bad phone. Also, I zoomed through LA but didn't see you. Next time. Food and stuff.
@katespeak the only bluefin tuna I could see them selling was farmed, from Australian bluefin tuna farms.
You remember I was talking about my excitement about how many amazing readers of audiobooks are out there? Check out
