experience all the thrills of an xdu board meeting...
...without all the pesky sitting around and stuff.
(the pics load at a 1 second interval so you probably have to be on a decently zippy connection for this to work very well.)

That was really funny. I see the furniture is still the same!

I cannot believe how much time I just spent watching that slideshow. And yet, it was pretty darned fun.
Lisa -- I'll ping you about an afternoon walk just as soon as spring returns!

i was sitting almost directly under the cam. and that slideshow really does capture all the thrills and chills of the board meeting experience. i particularly liked the mysteriously disappearing and reappearing jason...

i never noticed before that rick has such dramatic hand gestures!
. . . remind me never to wear those pants to a board meeting again.

a) i did pick my nose. i've been doing that at least once an hour after reading this:
b) i'm a fidgety motherfucker.
c) it does my heart good to know that jason and i are bored senseless by the same things.
d) i get georg's seat next meeting.

i know this is going to sound wacky, but i think that sofa is unflattering to women. it makes one's hips look proportionally wider. i don't think it was your pants, just that stupid sofa, comfy though it may be. note how rick remains perched on the edge of his seat for almost the entire meeting. i think that's the key if you want to look good while on that sofa.
i like that this represents an almost complete catalog of Typical Rick Mannerisms. you must work on an hour-long cycle.

actually, i meant the short length of the pants looks pretty dumb on the cam, but thank you for making me think more about my thighs as well. ;)
