Miscellaneous notes

  • Everyone was guzzling their Santa Vittoria. Today it was still.
  • Telita Goile lent Prudence Wilkins-Wheat a phone charger. Besties or baddies?
  • Ben Hines gave me his bottle cap. I am not sure how to feel.
  • Connor Wherrett is giggling in the corner. What about? We simply do not know.
  • Both Ben Hines and Telita Goile are wearing their glasses today. It truly is a scholarly board.
  • Prudence Wilkins-Wheat, current Environment Portfolio holder, said what sounded like “Coal”. This might have been in reference to Cole Scott-Curwood, but Honi remains unconvinced.
