So I used this icebreaker in a Zoom yesterday and I'll bring it here: What are you eating / drinking tonight?
Jon Solomon 1:55:57 PM
Three Trenton-style tomato pies and every possible vegetarian appetizer from a kebab place that was open today (a pleasant surprise) + a veggie cheesesteak I am saving for tomorrow's bowl game (Go Cats).
Maura Johnston (host) 1:56:54 PM
@Jon excellent.
Jon Solomon 1:58:19 PM
It would have been a two hour mid-week drive but serious "Why didn't I go to Harrisburg to see Coriky in February" regrets!
Maria T 2:00:58 PM
Maria T 2:01:24 PM
We're eating veg chinese takeout tonight, like the trash pandas we are

hi im poppy
David Roy 2:20:48 PM
@maura That's a good plan. And then you have leftovers to snack on again tomorrow. I am now scrambling to find the leftover CBD dog treats I bought last year, assuming that COVID won't stop fireworks in our neighborhood this year. Our guy is not super-sensitive, thankfully.
Maura Johnston (host) 2:21:29 PM
@Mike Heyyy
Maura Johnston (host) 2:21:42 PM
@David I hope things are relatively peaceful!

It feels like this album dropped three years ago. It's superb, of course, no matter the time-is-a-flat-circle stuff happening this year.
