Never compromise your comic art for the sake of propriety.

You can trust me. I used to be a stand up comedian.

I never claimed to be proper.

I would say that for me it was a tie between Rapids and Freeze.

Rapids -
1. getting up above all that humidity for a little bit and in the slight wind
2. a good view of the surrounding area
3. seeing a good old-fashioned summer thunderstorm coming from the west and seeing the relief on the loader's faces when you told them for it would rain soon
4. positioning the old dispatch mirror so I check girls out walking on the street below

Freeze -
1. like Krista said, above it all in that box and all alone in the dark
2. your own personal a/c vent above your head
3. being able to see parents trying to sneak their kids on the ride and catching them while they were being ever so sly
4. having a one-way conversation with Mr. Freeze while it was slow....and after a many doubles back-to-back he might actually converse with you

We did indeed. That crew and the Flume crew the year before were my favorites. So much fun! So much ass-kickin'!

So what are you up to now? Married with children? Are you working in the family business?

Still single, no kids. I'm running the family business, but am planning on getting out of here by the end of the year. Ideally, to Seattle.

How about you?

Married with 3 children. Tyler is 11 going on 12 (Damn it makes me feel really old), Michaela just turned 9, and Gaby is 8 months old (yep she was a BIG surprise).

Seattle is great. My husband's sister lived there for a long time. It was a nice place to visit.

Wow - three kids! You've got your work cut out for you.

Vernor is up in Seattle/Tacoma, too.
