    Everyone please feel free to bask in RJ's greatness

    Putting on a display of their infinite wisdom this morning, our board appointed me director of the community development department. The promotion comes with a few more coins.

    Now get over here and give me a hug.


    EDIT: Made a reservation at the hot restaurant for Friday night to celebrate.

    But you've got a new bedskirt and some wrestling scars, and clean blinds.

    Let me be the first tonight to say "BooYeah!" Make good use of the coins. Sounds like you've got a new bedskirt to pay for and a wife who could use dinner out.

    Go buy yourself something nice... like a blue shirt from Macy's.

All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Congrats, RJ!

    Headed back shortly for a Plan Commission meeting that could be interesting in a not good way. [Cough]pillmillordinance[/Cough] and a PUD that ought to be approved but will have opposition. The local brew pub will be a pleasant relief post-meeting.

    Congrats on the reservation and condolences on the promotion. Or was it the other way around? Anyhoo, good luck! Increased responsibility = increased visibility, better get some new shades for standing in the spotlight. Maybe a new suit too. I recommend something in Nomex® for fire resistance.

    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate.

    Congrats RJ! That continues to give me hope that our department will do the right thing and shift things around here a bit.... good to hear that good things are happening to good people.

    I'm so proud of you, honeybunch.

    But I'm more interested in finally dining in celebration at that restaurant I've wanted to go to for years!

    Congrats!. All this, and you're getting laid, too, as we see from another thread.
