Gone Workin'

Next week I start my new job, so I imaginge that I will have a lot less time to poke around here in a regular basis. So if anyone is specifically looking for me, it would probably be a good idea to PM me.

Good for you! Hope it pays well and the kids play nice in the sandbox. And to paraphrase Arnold, "You'll be BACK!"

Glad to hear you found legit work before you had to start selling annuities door to door...

Can't you get a hand held devise for the internet? The garbage truck does make stops so you can catch up with what's going on here.

You know I wish you nothing but the best on the new gig.

Heh.

"Can I interest you in our latest equity indexed annuity, ma'am? 50 year surrender period, 35% commission and maybe you'll make some money. No? How about some crack, or maybe this stolen Rolex?"

Best wishes with the new job! Now you can start throwing money in your 401K, and watching it shrink like the rest of us.
