    Double yawn. When does Brian put on ‘Amanda’s’ undies for us?
    Line that makes the least sense: “I can through up a blog in about 20 minutes if I take some time”[??? How about taking 20 freaking minutes of time]

  2. Bill Sledzik says:

    Sorry to disappoint you again, David. I’ll ask Brian to work harder tomorrow.

    As for the line that “makes the least sense,” I’m afraid I have to nominate the one in your comment. I’m not following: “through up a blog”???

    It’s gets better David. We promise.

  4. David,

    Two things:

    1. The quote you have taken issue with was me being flip. I typically tell clients, “We can throw up a site in 20 minutes; that’s accounting for several cigarette breaks.” I was being facetious. The literal translation means that we work fast.

    2. I indeed have been known to wear Vikki’s panties, i.e. on my head. Personally, I wear them to the side like a tam. I think worn straight on with one’s ears out the side, looks goofy. But that’s just me.

    I hope that clears things up.

    Kind regards,

    Brian Connolly
