I think a giant snail would be cool. I'd probably keep one as a pet. I'd name him Gary, like Spongebob's pet snail.

I gave up asking that question a long time ago. Glad your cousin is okay.

Of course. You didn't?

Spongebob had adult humor in it. It's where I got "See You Next Tuesday."

Tell me about your new job. How much different will the commute be? Did you get an equivalent or better position? Will you have to travel at all or go on site ? Do you manage people or just systems?
Commute will be about same. Just in a different direction. Was a developer previously. New position is a sys admin. No travel. No managing people(I hated managing people when I did), just systems.

Yes. Money is the only thing that keeps me from seriously considering it someday. I think to myself, I could find a bunch of places that I would love and live for a 3rd of the cost. In retirement, I need to make that dollar stretch.

My supervisor approached me today and said he might be taking a job elsewhere in a few weeks. Wanted to know if I'd be willing to be his replacement. Said sure, even though I won't be making much more money, at least not at firs, but I'll at least beef up my resume a bit. Meh, we'll see what happens, not gonna get too worked up right now. Good luck to ya, sexy.

it was nice... cold, but nice to see. hubby & i have often wondered if anyone works in munich, as we often see a ton of people in the main square, and they look like they "belong there" in munich (i.e., not tourists gawking). add a couple hundred stalls and a few thousand more people, and it got me a bit twitchy from all the chaos and claustrophobia inducing "stuff"... but i am glad to ahve seen it at least once.

a better trip was towards teh south, to Garmisch. They had some major ski competitions there. very picturesque.
