In honour of the original quote board at the Casa, Bill and I kept a log of noteworhty quotes along the way. With over 5000 km and 4 months to think and reflect and talk, we certainly came up with some very deep and meaningful comments.

"Do you want to queue for awhile...just to queue?"
Bill in response to the crowds and long lines at the Prague Castle.

"It's about outcome management."
Bill, on child-rearing.

"My emotional bucket is filled to the brim right now. That is b-r-i-m-b, brimb."
Bill, 2 beers after the child-rearing comment above.

Steph: "Thank you for loving me even when I am grungy."
Bill: "It's not hard; I love grunge."

Steph: "Please don't play the synthesizer at dinner."
Bill: "I'm not. I'm playing the AIR synthesizer."

Steph: "Wow! You can read cyrillic upside down."
Bill: "It's easier upside down."

"I need a butt burqa."
Steph, trying to figure out how to modestly bicycle through Iran. (The visa was the kicker in the end.)

"Ahhhh, but that is where the mysticism comes in."
Bill, trying to explain his theory of the mysterious grape bottles contain transmogrified olive product. Don't try to think too hard about this one.

Bill: "Right now, my priority is making my toenail attractive to you."
...a few minutes later....
Steph: "Are you using the same knife on your toe that we use for the bread?!!"
Bill: "Not this time."

Steph: "You're pushing me into the gravel."
Bill: "No I'm not. I'm trying to cuddle."
(Riding bicycles side-by-side on a highway)

"Dogs are good, but they have a flawed Target Recognition System. They are like dumb bombs."
Bill, on the topic of dogs mistaking us for bad guys...or dinner.

"I think pretty much anytime there is food coming OUT of your mouth, it is low point on the Miss Manners scale."

Steph: "Am I a ski-R-ggggggrrrl?"
Bill: "No."
Steph: "I'm NOT? Why not?"
Bill: "Because you are wearing a pashmina."

"It's sorta elderly Stevie Nicks?"
Bill, describing my "look". HUH?

"Pink stuff YOK."
Bill, mourning the asbence of this classic Innis family dish at Thanksgiving.
(YOK means NONE in Turkish, not yuck in English.)

"The word for mouse in German is....uhhhhh....MAUS?"
