@lukehopewell Very HAMtacular. Earlier today we coined the new TLA “PRH”, for “pork-related happiness”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@lukehopewell The America is excellent. I’ve not been shot, but I’ve had three martinis and a billionty eleven margaritas and SO MUCH HAM.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@lukehopewell I cannot disagree with anything you say at this point. Even from my perspective here in The America.

Who ARE these fucktards, @lukehopewell? Why are they even allowed oxygen?

@franksting @jonoabroad @SnarkyPlatypus I know, and in Las Vegas I know people who will give me an assault rifle. Which is perfect.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@jonoabroad @SnarkyPlatypus Yeah NetSuite has done us a very generous schedule. This could work against them, long term. ;)

@lewellyn Like what even would you know about The Americans™?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lewellyn

So it’s hitting 2200 PDT Sunday in San Francisco, and my Monday commitments are 1100 transport to San Jose and then a 1700 cocktail party.

via Janetter for Mac

@caseyjohnellis I find it amusing that we have to catch up in The America because Sydney is just too hard.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to caseyjohnellis

@caseyjohnellis @Bugcrowd Absolutely. I’ve got free time Friday to Sunday, so I’ll ping you in the next few days.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to caseyjohnellis

@caseyjohnellis So what does my location say? :P I am in SFO, tho heading to San Jose at 1100 PDT Monday. Back in SFO on Thursday.

Oh God, it’s 2130 PDT already and Hulu is sulking and is offering me two weeks free upgrades. I think I might watch that then.

There will now be a brief burst of Instagramming while I catch up with what has been happening.

Which is worse? High level nuclear waste, of Facebook?

via Cloudhopper

There is probably such a thing as too many $5 martinis.

via Cloudhopper

Despite being told off, using the c-word to describe a Facebook software engineer who is drinking here.

via Cloudhopper

Being told off for saying the c-word in The America.

via Cloudhopper

From a long term moral and ethical viewpoint, there’s nothing wrong with $5 martinis.

via Cloudhopper

OH: “No, Jason. Maximum strength. That’s what I like.”

via Cloudhopper

Currently chatting with a guy from Knoxville, Tennessee, who’s a sales guy for systems for disposing of high level nuclear waste. As you do.

via Cloudhopper

Me to barmaid making cocktails: “That looks dangerous.” She, with big grin: “Sure!”

via Cloudhopper

That dive bar in Chinatown.

via Cloudhopper

The route display on that Muni trolley bus is alternating “30 Stockton” and “GO WARRIORS!”

via Cloudhopper

She should not be doing that with that crab.

@SnarkyPlatypus In late October I was frequently panhandled along Market St, today not at all, and only one guy asleep near a Muni station.

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ve only been out today and it’s a sunny Sunday, but my gut feeling is fewer homeless, at least in downtown San Francisco.

And this whole Webcor-Obayshi development is what? Five city blocks long?

via Cloudhopper

Dalton Caldwell was right, this town is booming. There’s so much premium office space under construction.

It is 1630 PDT and I’m heading to an event in Jack Kerouac Lane, so obviously nothing could possibly go wrong.

@chrisjrn I succumbed to an experience along those lines. I was forced to.

Earlier today I attempted to explain The America through its advertising. It was probably a bit wrong.

And as well as cheap vodka, The America has other benefits instagram.com/p/ZOLn2hCFoj/

via Instagram

I do like The America’s concept of being able to buy gin and vodka at a pharmacy. Like 1.75 litres of Stolichnaya for $21.99.

via Janetter for Mac

I do like that restaurant’s idea of having a “Weekly Beast”.

via Janetter for Mac

@marymad Indeed! I’m looking forward to a wander around town today, once I’ve finished a lazy morning at the hotel. Bloody Marys may happen.

I have never made the mistake @umairh describes. But you probably knew that already.

via Janetter for Mac

umairh You guys often confuse being yourself with being nice and polite. It means very much the opposite. And that’s how people get into you.

I hereby coin a new TLA: It is PRH, for “pork-related happiness. @ivovic @BXGD @SnarkyPlatypus

ivovic @stilgherrian @BXGD It’s OK. You can still know pork-related happiness even after you forget what it’s called. Similar road for me I imagine
