    Good job, to celebrate you should buy yourself a good pair of shoes.

    Where are the pics of you wearing this suit? We want to be the judge of how it looks.

    Like I said, until the stars align and the girlfriend is around when I am wearing it it can't happen.

    I don't like going out during the work week either. Unfortunately, I sometimes have work-related dinners or friends who pass through town and insist on getting together. I'm currently in DC, and tonight I have a reception and dinner that'll probably go long into the evening. I dread it because today was exhausting and I have a long day tomorrow that starts around 7.

    beauty is in the eyes of the beholder... at least until the beholder can afford some better shoes, you know, some topsiders or something.

    That's even worse, when you are tired as hell and you are thinking that you still have so much longer to go until bed.

    So, this friend of mine, who is pretty wealthy himself and from a wealthy family and very well-connected recently started a company. He is being advised by people who work in the industry and such and he wants to meet me next week to discuss me working for him. He claims I wouldn't have to quit my job and I can name my price. I am both excited to talk this all over, yet wary of making any drastic moves. I don't know what to expect.

    Well, maybe. If it is minimal work I would do it for very little, but he wants to pay me fuck you money I would definitely do some thinking. I can't fuck around with my mortgage, son.

    If you keep your current job, then when would you work for him? Sounds intriguing.

    A little moonlighting for cash never hurt anyone. Plus, I could always do things on weekends. He also said I wouldn't have to hold office hours or anything, just work at my own pace.
