    "If your not screwing up your not really doing anything." That one I heard when I was young.

    Recently I went on a date. She was showing me around her building and I came across this marvel.

    Gorgeous, if terrifying Looks like 1910-1920 vintage. Have seen some of those still in service in older hotels and such here in Seattle.

    Edit: looked closer, updating guess to 30's

    This is an old office building. It's been completely bypassed but she keeps it around because she finds it beautiful - my kind of woman.
