janelle: Hey, you know who's really dreamy?
janelle: More dreamy.
janelle: Mmmmmmmmmmm hmmmmmmmmmm
janelle: I'd love to talk to Mr. Dreamboat, but I'm so intimidated by his dreaminess.

janelle: Tickle fight?
janelle: Ooooh! That's a great idea! We'll BOTH tag him!
janelle: Super dreamy.
janelle: Tee hee hee....
And so it appears that both janelle renée of Just Thoughts and and Sara
So, because I'm a big fat dreamy sheep, I must.....

What were you doing 10 years ago?
February 1996: Life wasn't so different, really. I was living in sin here in San Francisco with Hank, my soon-to-be-fiancee. I was still working at Hewlett Packard, but was carefully eyeing a start-up recently launched by two ex-HPers, dreaming of dot com riches. (Damn that bubble!)
What were you doing 1 year ago?
February 2005: This, except without this especially crappy blog post. I was living in this house, with this family, working this job, and running fairly often. Life doesn't change very quickly for me. The only significant difference was that I was looking ahead to the Boston Marathon, and wondering what running goal would be next, not realizing that next goal was Never Run Another Marathon. Ahhhh, the sweetness of realized goals.
