I had an idea today that I hope you guys can help me out with. I have to learn how to use this data visualization software for work. That's a fancy way of saying I have to make some charts and graphs. This software has some good map functions, and I thought we could build a Tens map. If you want to be on the map, fill out this form. I'll put together a map and we can see where all the Tens are. All I need is your first name, city, and sate. There are optional fields to insert your email address, twitter, and facebook. Pop your details in there if you want. Maybe we'll all make a bunch of new friends.
It will be like this, but less depressing.
Thanks in advance if you fill out the form.
Listen to today's podcast if you want to picture Andrew Walsh clubbing in LA. It's a fun image.

I have been recieving emails from Tens, and I like it guys. Keep sending your emails this way. I'll read all of them. Sout's honor*. I got an email from Burien Ten (BuriTen?) Julie, who wants Andrew to know that she's sad to see him go. Don't worry, Julie. New Andrew is here to make everything better. Shhhh. Shhhhh. Everything's okay.
She even sent in this nice photo.
I also got a nice email from listener Adrian Bayford who says he and his wife are donating a million dollars to me. How sweet of them. I don't know what I did, but I probably deserve it.
Also, Luke plays an interview with Rob Delaney today that is great. Check it out.

Congratulations to all the TBTL Club for Eagle Soaring members who ran in the Seattle Marathon or half marathon yesterday. You worked really hard and should be genuinely proud of yourselves. Hey, how many times does an average marathon runner tinkle during a race? It's a long race and you're sucking down water the whole time. Please let me know in the comments.
Any Tens in this picture? Probably not. It's from the Boston Marathon.
I would also like to extend a congratulations to the Seahawks for answering the question: Who dat gonna beat dem Saints? THE SEAHAWKS ARE. HARD. SPORT!
So congratulations to all you Eagle Soarers, the Seahawks, Farts McGee, Fart McGee, and Fartbeats. Those last three are my fantasy football teams' names. They all won too. Yes, I'm a 27-year-old man with three fantasy football teams with fart in the name. I may be single, but I had a 3-0 fantasy football weekend, so I got that going for me. Which is nice.

Oh my gourd, you guys, my grandma is making dinner tomorrow and I'm going to eat so much of it. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving (or as Adele calls it, "Fanksgiving"), and I hope if you like Thanksgiving as much as I do, you have a nice, warm place to gather with people you care about and stuff your grill.
I'm going to Grandma's tomorrow for a family Thanksgiving, but I was also fortunate enough to get invited to a "Friendsgiving" last weekend. I ate so much I didn't eat again until 4pm the next day. We danced on tables.
Friendsgiving '13: The Dancening
At one point my best bud Travis said something to me about memories. I don't remember exactly what it was, because there was a lot of vino consumed, but I'll put it in quotes and we'll pretend this is exactly what he said, "I rank memories by how many dementors I could fight off with them. This memory will be able to handle at least a couple of dementors."
Whether you're doing a traditional family Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, or nothing at all. I hope the next few days create a memory good enough to fight off a couple of dementors.
Have a great Thanksgiving, and I'm sorry if you're not a Harry Potter fan.

I took some pictures last night at the Uber HQ while Luke and Andrew were podcast from 32 floors above the earth. I got to meet some really nice Tens including Sarah, Will, Dave, and some others who's names I didn't catch because I'm not great at human interaction. Everyone I met was an absolute peach. Enjoy some pics.
Richard Sherman's face was there too.
There were roughly 10 Tens
Not a bad view for a podcast
If I put your face on here and you don't want it on the internet, please let me know as soon as you can (email@example.com) so I can take your face off. I will also take your face off your face and wear it like a mask.
Big thanks to Uber Jen and the very funny Uber Drew Barth for letting us take over their office.
It was Andrew's last show while also being a Seattle resident. We'll all miss him and his delightful neuroses. Even if I were to become "New Andrew" you can't have "New Andrew" without an Andrew good enough to warrant keeping the name. Safe travels, buddy.
