  1. Twitter stole the whale. I hope you know that! Thiefs!

  2. Erk

    Marnie, I never want to see the Twitter Fail Whale again. Can’t see it happening, though! They stole it from you guys?

  3. I just finished listening to all three parts of this round table. And, even though I was there when it was recorded, I am still laughing at the funny stuff as I listen to today. It was so much fun being part of Round Table, again. Thanks for inviting us, again.

  4. Erk

    Jen – I love Round Tables. They are so much fun because you never know where they are going! RT5 is still my favourite but RT6 is sweet, too. And it is always my pleasure to have you and Shawno on board! :)

    I would like to correct a statement made during the Round Table.

    As I wasn’t at the table at the time, I would like to correct Squeak regarding the Australian equivalent to the American Wine, ‘Boones Farm’.

    It was mentioned in part 1 of the Round Table around the 52 minute mark. It was said the Australian equivalent to ‘Boones Farm’, was the ‘Wines’ Pink and Yellow, by Yellowglen.

    Firstly, Pink and Yellow come in a CORKED bottle, not a screwtop. Secondly Pink and Yellow are Sparkling Wines.

    I believe the wine Squeak was referring to is Passion Pop, which IS cheap and nasty and consumed by mainly teenagers and university students.


  6. Erk

    Drue, the Pink and Yellow is the stuff that Ben and you like, is it not? I seem to remember it from when Ben and I went to the Bottleo.
