TwinCities

Cool to hear another Cities person here. I'm on the other side of the River.

I bought bamboo needles, once, specifically for a flight to the UK (Long, boring 7+ hours) and stupidly asked security especially if they were ok. Which, ofc, gave me a negative. I mean, seriously they're LESS dangerous than pencils! They bend!

(however, I have three cats) I went to bed, and she meowed forlornly at the door. Two hours later, she was still meowi...
