    A group of us students made t-shirts our senior year. The front said, “But what would Robert say?” and the back said, “Feed it to the piggs.” (intentional typo).

      I still have that hot pink long sleeve t-shirt…thanks to Anne Bousquet…through all my moves and given the fact I haven’t fit in it for 10 years!

    I always meant to make a button or T-shirt that said, “Who died and made you Robert?” Never got around to it.

    I will never have children. But if I ever have a child, I will give that child two very important names: Velveeta, and Styrene. {Go for it, I said. After all, you told Mike Brewer your fingers would never touch plastic!!}

    Old thoughts from MBT: I really don’t believe in skirts for sinks. If the stuff under the sink is ugly, then let it be ugly.

    It’s a good start. Question now is will you know when to stop?

    “Well, now that you have gotten that out of your system, go design something”

    “It’s either an A or an F. Either you do or you don’t.”
