Say It At Anchor

“You see? now if you had that damn thing on a lanyard, we wouldn’t have to do this.
What am I going to tell the office?”

“I’ll see you suckers on the one!”

Happy Hour

“Party in the Hamptons this weekend! Bring your grill!”

 *NOTE*: all unretouched screenshots (well, maybe the first one is tweaked a bit.)
Some names have been changed to protect the guilty.

DO NOT USE FOR NAVIGATION.

    I see Odin appearing on the first AIs picture. I thought Odin was retired in Houston.

    yes, this screen shot was taken November 2009.
