"It's not weird, actually, that you can't find it, because you don't remember the title." - Cab

Cab left for Pittsburgh three weeks ago, on towards future greatness in the international development world. She is amazing, and I miss her. I had a 100 calorie popcorn bag at 3 p.m. today and thought of her, because like clockwork, Cab would pop those mini-bags and make the office smell like an amusement park, if ever so briefly. Here are more reasons why Cab is cool:


She gave me the Between Boyfriends book to read and it was hilarious.


Gretzky: "He doesn't know what he wants."
Cab: "We've heard that before. Next."


The exercise balls we bounce around on in our cubicles.
Cab: "This is the shit we need pictures of."


Action in Save Darfur.


Gretzky: "I didn't think you liked me."
Cab: "I get that a lot."


She runs marathons every other week. Not quite that much, but almost. She is strong.


She makes sitting through meetings bearable. This is not a skill most of the world has. I wish she'd bottle it up and sell it to the rest of the people I have to meet with.


Karaoking to Mama Mia! in January.


I spilled barbecue all over myself on a first date. Classy, right?

Resulting in the funniest quote ever from Cherie: "Maybe he was thinking, 'Ooh, I wanna sop her up with a biscuit!'"

A text from Cab at midnight: "Ooh, I wanna sop her up with a biscuit!"


And one of two best Cab quotings ever, from Miranda:

Cab: "There are no mixed messages."

the other best Cab quoting ever:

"'Save it for Oprah, honey' - that's right, from Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit. Don't be a hater."

After a conversation about flirtatious text messages today, Danielle says I should slide into your shoes. Arthur says those are big slippers to fill, and I said he's right, too much pressure.
