Ah yes, the bull pen. We have a couple at work and they look just awful. Have fun.

for a week... thats not so bad. When I worked in Fairfax we got kicked off our floor while they remodled it. 9 months later, we were still in the same spot.

I LOVE having an office. though I wish mine was little bigger... I think I had more room in my cube, but its nice to close the door and be on the phone.

Better than anything before or after, IMO. Subies are not known for being pretty - far from it...

Pshhhh... The saying "looks only a mother could love" was originally used to describe a Subaru... People like them for how they drive, not how they look. And the people who think they're actually good looking cars need to have their sanity assessed by a board certified professional. And lets not forget, I own a Hawkeye Impreza.

I didn't know you were a knobby tire guy This is awesome...I love Burke. My old neighbor had a place in Island Pond, used to vacay up there. Tear it up, buddy!

If anyone wanted to leave their big bank, I have ING and love it. All online and nary a blip in 3+ years.

I actually like some STIs. 05 is probably my favorite. Other than that they make really bland cars.

Almost like Mitsubishi, except there is absolutely no reason to own any new Mitsubishi.

Really? That's awesome. Burke is a great place. I'll probably go back this summer with my friends. I didn't have that much time to explore the trails on the mountain because I was racing XC with the team. You really need a long weekend to ride all of the good stuff there.

Except ING is now owned by capital one... I'm thinking of leaving them. I don't really like cap one.
But again, the idea of changing all my bills and deposits over I'd so off putting.

Jen you still up to meet this week? I'll shoot you a pm with my digits.
