@hokumsean good plan. Neater sentences too, I'd imagine ;)@FranEHennessey Cheers!.@hokumsean I used to keep a whiskey bottle in my desk drawer for just such occasions..@FranEHennessey I think everything halfway decent I've ever written was birthed while I ate chocolate. And cheese.*eats feelings* *still hungry*

Retweeted by Amy Anderson@FranEHennessey My condolences. Also, pass the chocolate please.Why why why why must I eat when I write? How are my taste buds attached to my phalanges?
