Re: Work Until You Drop

Oboy, an understudy!

Stop by tomorrow, 9am. I wont be up until 12, but start by washing any carlike substances in the driveway. If you finish that by 12, go buy beer.

Well, there are four ways to figure out who made the "investment". #1: who gained the most by the results, #2: a footnote in the paper/document/research, #3: who used the results the most, #4: call or email and ask them.

Cynical? You would be ayyyymazed at who I got to say what about whom or what...

Re: Work Until You Drop

Th--note I suggested status as a Master Skeptic.
As I understand the difference, a skeptic always questions while a cynic not only questions but believes no mater what the answer, something bad is going to happen. Expects the worst at all times.
Hence I stand by Skeptic--I have only seen honest questioning in your posts. But I guess you would know best.

Re: Work Until You Drop

Buck up, TH, and think how much better playing ball with a 10-year-old will be for your health and your life, than being a suit in the Corporation!

Seriously, kids can be quite stressful, but in my life, the stresses I've encountered in childrearing ALL pale in comparison to the stress of trying to combine it with WORK, especially when my daughter was young. The dearth of decent child care was the primary factor behind my decision to stop at one. Finding good child care (so that I could WORK, even half-time) was an absolute nightmare when my kid was under 3.

Limber up, TH, and take your vitamins. This kid will keep you young!

Re: Work Until You Drop

Is beer a vitamin? I think its one of the four food groups.

What are they again? Beer, pizza...I forget the other two.

I'm with ya on the wings. Grilled or deep fried and drenched in Franks Red Hot.

Krispy Kremes are good, but I almost passed out when I saw their last price hike. A buck a donut? I dont think so. They're in all the supermarkets out here in No Cal now. Pretty smart.

Yes, but stay away from Krispy Kreme stock until
the Adkins diet fad wears off.

Cheers,

Charlie

Re: Work Until You Drop

I checked out the Krispy Kreme prospectus.
It had a lot of holes in it.

Krispy Kremes in paradise

KK opened a branch on Maui a while back. I don't know why they didn't do Waikiki first but they put themselves in the position of having one of Hawaii's most popular attractions on one of the less-populated islands.

Since then the interisland flights can't keep up with the traffic. People have actually been paying $150+ for round-trip KK shopping trips. Oahu companies compete for marketing points by sending employees on "business trips" to return with KKs for client meetings. Aloha Airlines now limits the number of KK boxes in passenger's carry-on & checked luggage. There have even been threats to charge freight rates for hauling them back to Honolulu. (I can only imagine the rodent problem at Kahului's airport.) Small fishing boats have even been trying to cross the channel and smuggle back their ill-gotten gains.

So if you're planning a visit, pack your reinforced luggage with KKs. The hotel staff might even offer a discounted room rate them in lieu of cash, and there are certainly a lot of people in Waikiki willing to "barter"!

Re: Work Until You Drop

John-

Reach up and bop yourself on top of the head. Theres a good chance you just got off better than if I did it.

Nords-

Until they start filling them with liquer, I aint paying a buck for a donut.

Can you believe they're coming out with "low carb" donuts?

I'd rather eat a road apple.

It's been a while since I was an undergrad but IIRC the four food groups are alcohol, fat, caffeine, and sugar.
