I recently traveled to Lisa’s SVP Seattle office, then I traveled to SVP Seattle’s Green Conference room and most recently I traveled to SVP Seattle’s Yellow conference room.  I’m looking forward to seeing other conference rooms.  I’m a fan of sitting and basking on my shelf — I’ll probably travel there next.

Life Motto

Behold the turtle. He makes only progress when he sticks his neck out.

Things That Give You the Wiggins

Meetings with no agenda, I get to sit in on a lot of meetings living in a conference room.  Meetings without an agenda unsettle me … deeply.

Paul Giamatti, that guy has been in everything!

Theme Song

Turtle Rhapsody from the 1990 classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That’s my jam! Turtle Power!

    Svipee. I have to take issue with your theme song selection. The objective best song from the 1990 classic film “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” is actually Turtle Power! by Partners in Kryme. Even though the song’s lyrics erroneously claim that Raphael is the leader of the team, a role actually held by Leonardo, you can’t argue with the chorus:

    T-U-R-T-L-E POWER!!
