X is for...

X is for... X10.

Otherwise known as my friend, Christen.

She will probably be horribly embarrassed by this, but I think she's super-cool and you all on the interwebs should know it.

Yes, I'm sure you thought I would go with something shocking (x-rated) or perhaps medical (x-rays) or Duchovny-esque (I don't have to say it, do I?) for this post, but that seemed too easy and frankly, kinda cliche. I thought it would be more interesting to dedicate it to my friend X10.

She is exceptionally generous- when we were replacing our deck, she and her husband came over & helped without even being asked.

She has a cute weiner (dog).

She's a real cool dancer.

And photogenic as well.

She's astonishingly tall.

And had never used public transportation until the night we took this picture.

She participates in Women Swimmin', a fundraiser for Hospicare that involves swimming across Cayuga Lake.
I hope to join her this year.

She has a huge heart, as evidenced by her adopting this beautiful broken kitty.

She is fun to travel with.
Best quote ever: "I love Vermont! You wake up with no hangover and
the coffee comes out of the wall!"

And she is capable of great feats of strength.
Christen is going back to school to study nursing and I admire the heck out of her for juggling school, work, her pets, crazy friends, and everything else life can throw at you and making it all look easy. She is awesomesauce incarnate and I am lucky to call her my friend.
