Highlights from Flutter Testing

Jason: I became a communist so I wouldn't have to go to Pax.

Tim: Light pink, not gay pink.

The Other Tim: Oh!  You said "table lead sits here."  I heard "table lead buys beer!"

Tim:  Just another lying piece of shit.

Tim: You're not impressed, I can tell.  In fact, you're snarling.

Test Status Board

Mark:  So if something is flashing on here, does that mean I need to toggle my "give a shit" switch from no to yes?  That's really all I need to know.

Something about me

Niki: This morning I had to do an icebreaker and write down something about me that no one knew.  I couldn't think of anything, so I said that I had once been bitten by an ostrich.

Toes (via text message)

Joe:  Hey, I need to paint my toenails.  Have any nail polish I could borrow?
Jeny: Yes I do.  Bathroom.  Medicine cabinet.  Top shelf?  Look around.  Shouldn't be anything embarrassing.  For you or me.  And make sure you shake it!
Joe: Oh good call.  I don't do this every day (that you know of)!!
Jeny: I only wish I could be there.
Joe: How long does it take to dry?
Jeny: Give it at least 10 min.  Should be dry to the touch by then.
Joe: Do you have remover?!?
Jeny: Bottom shelf.  Back left corner.
Joe: Phew!  Thanks!!
