I guess, then I really would have to pee before I ski.
I always thought it meant peanut butter 4 us-ki. This changes everything.

Thanks! I'll pass on the trip to Pat O'Briens since I don't drink, but will gladly celebrate with a big glass of water at lunch today.

So far so good, eh? Can you imagine coming in to work after a holiday weekend to report that you spent 12 hours playing video games?

If you remember Pat O'Brien's then you didn't do it right.

I'm still not sure how I got all of those ugly hurricane glasses...

I went to a bachelor party many years ago in New Orleans and at the end of the night we threw all our empty Pat O's glasses up against a brick wall. Hey I was young. The feted bachelor ended up being COO of a very major corporation. He retired at 50.

Congratulations, I can remember your achievement very well. (I was only a couple of months behind you and very interested in how you managed the transition)

Happy to hear ER has worked out for you. I am 5.5 month away and hope I feel the same as you after three years. Wishing you many more years of contentment.
