“I doubt it. I think most of our profits we made last year have paid for my raise with little more left. Alas there is very little glamour in the real world of architecture. Hang in there mapleleaf things will get better.”
“Mapleleaf, my company is usually hiring hiring unskilled, low-paid people after driving off us high-paid old farts. Of course you'd have to commute to Texas....”
“What is the time frame? Or how soon will the lmove take place?”
“I forgot to say I still think life is good, even if I haven't had a raise in a while and don't expect one any time soon.”
“rumor is they close in 2 weeks. bosses say that they are showing the building.
who is telling the truth?”
“Why is it that I see Mapes working at the auto pound in my mind's eye?”
“Life is good. No longer anything to complain about, as the snow continues to fall my snowmobile is just begging for me to climb on and ride the weekend away.”
“I just found out for sure yesterday that they finally made my promotion official and the corresponding pay raise will be on my next check. Woohoo!”
“This being 1/20/04 and you put this out there on 1/17/04...
...it safe to say no one cares.”
“i got my new glasses today, replaced from when my alter threw away or lost them in january.
I CAN SEE AGAIN!!!”
“said the blindman...”
“I'll see ya and raise ya an eyebrow.....”
“ROFL! honestly you have no idea how great it is. after my glasses were gone i cried. i mean i was grateful that i kept a pair of old ones, but the prescription was ten years old and so weak. seeing again so clearly is AWESOME!”
“Oh.......I have a dang good idea what you're talkin' about.
Last year I had a cataract and in December my lenses were replaced.
Now my distance vision is near perfect and I only need cheap reading glass to read.
>8^b to >:^b”
“It's old people that get cataracts isn't it? I must not be there yet:)”
“Your line of boolsheet is gettin' old, Nimble.”
“Hey, nimblefoot is right. I am not there yet, either.”
“The view from my office window is the bluest blue ocean and humpback whales. Life is good!”
“Ran to the top of a mountain after work - my favorite local run. Enjoyed the view.
My wife made dinner for her aunt & cousins, shared with California wine. It was a good day!”
“Good deal. I like to hear about positive things.”
“I'm bragging, but it's out of gratitude. Life was not always so sweet.”
“I hear ya.
When the girls (16-17) would get giggly in class (it happens) and the others would start to lose their patience, I would tell them to calm down and let the girls laugh.
I would always say, 'We cry enough in a lifetime and we must laugh when we can.'”
“I live five minutes from the AT, I can't complain. I love the mountains!”
