@NewtonMark @jonkudelka I have a debit card. They don’t let me have a credit card.

@NewtonMark @jonkudelka As I said earlier, people paid for me to be in the posh VIP part of the ferry.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

@NewtonMark @jonkudelka Yeah OK maybe putting us back on the ferry and feeding us alcohol was the more sensible option.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NewtonMark

YES I KNOW HOW TO PRONOUNCE “LAUNCESTON” WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I don’t understand Tasmania.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@NewtonMark @jonkudelka Does it? They seemed eager to put us back on the camouflaged ferry catamaran and feed us champagne.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @jonkudelka Hobart is just some sort of dangerous intermediate zone between wasabe, dumplings, whisky, and colonialism.

@BXGD Apparently this is how Tasmania works.

@NewtonMark No it is the way these Tasmanians do it.

@jonoabroad That’s the Wrest Point Casino, hugely controversial in the 1970s, I think it was.
