    Thank you Mr. B. Worked hard all day, but had a nice al fresco dinner late into the night...

    I'm enjoying your book, although I must take issue with your paragraph about being judged by employers for the quality of your watch -- I nearly did a spit take when I read that. I interview people for jobs all the time, and on the contrary, if I noticed them wearing a fancy-schmancy watch during an interview (I rarely notice anyway), I'd be concerned that they might spend the shareholders' money just as frivolously. If anything, it would be a moderate strike against them in my book. My 13-year-old Swiss Army watch with replacement mechanism from China has never cost me a job or a consulting gig...

    :)

    Logan:

    Au contaire, quoting from p. 33- "Your choice in a watch says a lot about you and whether or not you're serious about your career. As with monograms, less is more. Select a thin watch, preferably with a metal band. If you wear a large, ostentatious watch, your interviewer may think you don't need the job."

    And a happy day to Valmont as well.

    Maybe that's why the Forum is so balanced- lots of Libras.

    Hmmm. I'll have to take a look again and see what paragraph it was that made me spit coffee all over my pants. ;-)

    Stay tuned...

    Thanks Steve,

    it was acutally one of the better b-days in a long time. Just wish I could have stayed at 22 a bit longer, it gets kind of scary each year from now on as the big 30 is getting closer...

    Happy birthday Navy Styles. I'm sure the Quarter will treat you well tonight (do a body shot at the Dungeon for me.)

    Thanks fellas.

    So far the day has been alright. I went out to lunch with a faculty member (it just so happened to fall on my birthday). So that was nice to be treated. If only I didn't have classes to get in the way -- especially physics... the prof sure knows how to mess up a perfectly good day. Thanks again for the kind words, guys.
