Oana: Hey! What have you been up to?

Oana: For how long?
Erin: Like 45 minutes but it was a good conversation!

the protein bar tradition
Diane: Hey dear, did you already eat the protein bar I gave you the other day?
Erin: Nope! Here you go.
Diane: Thank you so much! What time are you getting up tomorrow? I PROMISE I'll buy you one so you can eat it after your run!
Erin: Diane. It's ok. You need to stop buying me these because honestly, you buy them, give them to me, ask to eat them...only to buy me *another* one to *give* to me to *ask* to eat later!
Diane: But I feel like I need to make up for the one that was yours that I ate and never paid for?
Erin: You already paid for it! It was so long ago, you forgot. You keep buying me them. And then eating them. And then saying, "I promise I really will buy you one tomorrow!" But when I say, "No really don't!" You say, "I WILL! I WILL!"
shallow and pedantic
Diane: What? Did I really say that? "You may be shallow and pedantic but you're still my favorite pancake?"
Erin: Yes! You did!
Diane: I don't remember that. Wait! I do! This was after you were telling me about how frustrated you were when you had to write your "work view". You said, "I don't get it! I just need to make money! That's why I work. Why do I need to write more?"
Erin: Yup. And then you said, "You may be shallow and pedantic but you're still my favorite pancake!" And you ran out the door. And then I thought, "Wow...that is so true."
what i believed in high school in a nutshell
“Love is in itself a dangerous condition for women, Beauvoir concludes, because it tends to encourage their dependency on men and discourage them from pursuing their own goals. Marriage she describes as based on an ‘obscene’ principle, because it makes a duty of what should be a freely given exchange. It is also closely linked to the role of women as maintainer of the home - a...
driving with diane
Erin: I want you to learn how to get un-stuck if you get lost. So, I won't tell you where to go, you're on your own.
Diane: Wait, so where am I? Where is University Ave? Should I turn left? Or right? Crap! There's a car behind me. Crap! I have to turn. I think I'll turn left?
Erin: I'm trying not to talk.
Diane: You mean you're trying not to cry!
mimosas and screwdrivers
Erin: Man, we need to figure out what drinks to order, I don't want to look clueless when I get there.
Diane: I heard mimosas were good.
Erin: Ok let's google it.
Diane: Oh, so it comes in a champagne glass. It says, "Order in a rocks glass so it'll look like you're drinking a screwdriver."
Erin: What's a rocks glass? And what's a screwdriver?
Diane: See, like the type they have at diners and stuff.
Erin: Oh, I get it! It's so that you don't look wimpy.
Diane: Ok let's practice, "I'll have a mimosa in a rocks glass please."
Erin: Yeah and if they say, "What are you drinking?" I'll say, "A SCREWDRIVER, YEAH!"
Diane: Yup this is definitely going on tumblr.
I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around...– John Green - Looking for Alaska
Erin: *disney music* Wow, I can't believe this is coming from my speakers.
Diane: It's not hip hop, rap, stanky leg or any of that stuff!
Erin: Definitely not used to this.
Diane: I know, because it's actually wholesome.
I mean, I didn’t think I’d get along with you when I first met you....– AT
quotables from my french film class
I realized that what makes this class wonderful isn’t so much that we get to watch French movies, but that my professor has insights that transcend mere interpretation and analysis. His thoughts are just original and genuine. That said, he’s also extremely quotable. Here are some juicy bits gathered from today’s lecture, everything from the hilarious to the heart touching. ...

panini and meatloaf
Erin: Where's your panini? They only make them on Thursdays man, you're missing out!
Alfred: Panini? I don't need no panini! I ain't one of those fashion eaters! Betchu were one of the first in line when crepes came out at the Axe & Palm, yeah, betchu were one of those types.
Erin: Mmmm crepes!
Alfred: See this meatloaf? *BITES* DELICIOUS MEATLOAF! I don't need no paninis!
Erin: Wow, here's a guy who is happy with boring food.
Erin: I can't tell if you're supposed to be madonna or the statue of liberty. Or...some sick twisted form of mother mary?
Nicolai: I was a mermaid...with a triton.
alex and bay to breakers
Erin: This isn't just any race, it's a "San Francisco" event, it's a big deal, people run this thing NAKED!
Alex: Ok well then sign me up! Wait, does this go to a cause?
Erin: Registration fees usually cover a) some type of cause and b) your racing materials. It's definitely on the website.
Alex: I suppose it's a positive NPV project for society as a whole. Gosh, we're classy bankers now. We are PAYING to RUN. I'd say that's a step up in the social order.

Erin: It would be awesome to work together - if you're ever looking to start a company after college, give me a call!
Tiq: Lol for now, any knowledge of PARTIES is what I will send your way.
Erin: Look, I got dandruff all over the floor!
Diane: That's not dandruff, that's sugar.
Erin: Darn, how did you know?
Erin: I'm so loopy right now. I used to say "hyper" but I learned from Nic that if I'm not bouncing off the walls it's more appropriate to say "loopy".
Diane: Yes, because you're only passively deranged.
