MichaelC: maggie's question of the day - why?!
Maggi: where is the schoolhouse?

Vance: Why did I have to go to another room? I had to set a couple of guys on a task that I'm avoiding by being here.
Maggi: I always ask too many questions...women's perogative.
Maggi: I actually got fired from a job once for asking too many questions.
MichaelC: Are you leaving town for your leave Vance?
Maggi: Good excuse, eh Vance?

Vance: Do you mean, "Very well." ??
gloria: very good idea (under the tree)
Maggi: girls stick together...LOL
Vance: That's correct then. 'Very well' means agreement.
Vance: You guys are stuck together, alright.
Maggi: LOL...say Gloria...do you have mistletoe at Christmas?
MichaelC: Dear People - have to go. Are you around till Wednesday Vance?
Vance: This is actually a mistletoe tree.
MichaelC: Very curious Gloria.
Vance: How are you guys able to do that?
Maggi: those little green berry like stuff that grows as a parasite in trees...
Maggi: do what?
MichaelC: Just talent.
Vance: Can't manage it.
Maggi: there is no such thing as a mistletoe tree...
Vance: Well what's this then?

gloria: very hard to move this day
Vance: I think that's it. Your machine is just slow.
Maggi: I have a real nasty bruice on my back...
Vance: A bruise? Did you get it moving?
Maggi: I fell off the chair because my desk moved (it is on wheels) and landed on the corner of something sharp...
Maggi: went betwen the ribs..
Vance: Don't you think it would be better to put the wheels on your chair?
Vance: I'm trying to imagine Maggi with a mouse. She's moving the desk around under the mouse ...
Maggi: I was sitting on a solid wooden kindergqarten chair...the one I have now has wheels.
Maggi: I have a touch pad...:-)
