I'm happy you're posting again. smile.gif

AND today I got back under the 170# barrier for the first time in years. If I can keep both trends going this should be a good year.

top 5? meh... you can do top 3, meng. good luck!

so I left the bay area approximately 23 hours ago, after chugging a couple of pints at bj's, got through security just before the gates were opened, the cattle class was less than 3/4 full, the exit row I sat in was empty save for me, and the pretty f.a. buckled in front of me and I got to a long conversation and she asked me if there's anything that I'd want and I said I forgot my sleeping pills and so she snuck me one from her stash.... (it occurred to me after she gave me the pill that she might've passed me something illegal, but I was desperate to get maximum sleep hours and I dozed off for maybe 6, 7 hours. this was perhaps the most pleasurable long haul economy class trip I've taken my entire adult life.

Way to go i.s. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif My wife and I tried to volunteer to help clean up in Fukushima after the tsunami but they already had too many people to handle, so we gave blood instead.

Salt licorice. I can't believe they don't sell this in the US.

The decade you live in.

Well, I don't know the according-to-Hoyle definitions, but I've always imagined a secretary sits at a desk, answering phones, taking dictation, opening letters, making copies, mailing items, those kinds of things. An assistant is more active and drives to pick up my dry cleaning, goes to court to pick up documents, interviews with clients if I'm not available, maybe even prepares some simple motions for my signature, acts as designated driver during the 3 Martini Lunches, those kinds of things.

So a secretary more knowledgeable about your job/industry. Makes sense.

Man, even I'd enjoy a flight like that. I forgot how long those flights are.

However, once I got out of my car when I used to drive and lost grip of my keys and they went right into the sewer. It was also freezing out. One of the worst days of my life.
That is seriously one of my biggest fears. Also reminds me that I lost my second car key and need to get a new one made.

I am rapidly approaching 4000 posts, at which point I gain superpowers (unless certain men have been pulling my leg).

Or pulling something else, for that matter...

I'd like to think I'd know in that case. (Not much benefit if I'm unconscious, you know.)
