Women's ride to Burien

Zana:  I didn't want to hit the bottom of this hill at 35mph with a soft front tire.  Be careful too guys, there's a little off camber section near the bottom.

[One giant descent later.]

Jeny:  You know Zana, I got about halfway down the hill and thought to myself:  I don't know what "off camber" means.  This could be bad.

Wisdom of the SDL Shop

Brad:  I drank a lot of beer in high school and I did a lot of drugs too.  Now I come here, sit at this table, work the accels for you guys.  They pay me a lot of money too.  Life is pretty good for me.  You - you're all stressed out.  You are a victim of your own life choices.

Mark:  Oh, I'm suppose to be aware?  You want me to be aware?  Ok, I'll be aware.  This is me being aware.  I am so full of aware right now.  I am dripping with aware.

A token of appreciation

Peter: I'd get you guys Tully's cards, but you don't have them down here.
Jason: No, all we have is the bikini baristas down the street.

11 for 2011

Jen's goals - or resolutions as some my call them - for the coming year.

1. Get a monthly massage.  Focus on keeping my back healthy.
2. Communicate better and continue to grow in the relationships that are important to me.
3. Reduce grain, dairy & sugar intake.
4. Finish this damn thesis.
5. Operate on a budget and make financially responsible decisions.
6. Improve at-desk posture.
7. Institute a weekly "community" gathering, i.e. movie nights, summer pitchers of sangria in the backyard, Sunday morning brunch potlucks.  Invite all my friends.
8.  Build myself a hot tub!
9.  Incorporate a commute to work in ways that aren't driving my car: bike, bus or carpool.
10.  Take more pictures.  Bake more cookies.  Go to more concerts.  (But first finish that thesis.)
11.  Be more spontaneous; don't get into a daily/weekly/monthly rut of doing the same things over and over.

Joel & Charlie

Joel: ... and then you come in here, and walk over to this table, and load it, test it, load it, test it...
Bernie:  They sound like an old married couple right?  So which one of you is sleeping on the couch tonight?
Joel: [points to Charlie.]
Charlie:  Who SAT in this chair last?  What is WRONG with you??  I'M not sleeping on any couch.

A conversation with Bernie

Bernie:  So you have two options.
Jen: 1) Go sit at Rayleigh.  2) Quit.
Bernie: No, 2 is wrong.
Jen: Dammit.
Bernie:  Your score is 50%.
Jen: 50% = Fail.
Bernie: Sory that's a failing grade.  But wait!  You get extra credit for being lovable.  So you get a 66%.
Jen: Yesssssss!
Bernie: Pass!
Jen: Wait, that means I can't quit.

Lab Dating Scene

Patrick:  Hmm, if I *were* dating George, then I could ask him to do something about Mitch.

Age digs

Jaami:  Hey Jeny, this is Phil Collins.  Thought you might be a little young to recognize him.

Jaami: I think I'm sore from last night's workout.
Lisa: What did you do?
