    Announcement - New Job

    To everyone that has provided suggestions and encouragement and listened to my bitchin' about white trash and the city currently live in I have good news.

    I have just accepted a position that is a side step and a bit forward on the career path, but in a much better place for me personally and professionally.

    Now comes the fun part, trying to sell my house and find a place to live an 18 hour car drive away.

    I start in mid March, and it will probably cut into my slacking time considerably after that.

    Bye bye white trash, "mini homes", bags of bologna,that "good dark rum", smelts, sugar donuts as high class food and inbred albinos.
    Too lazy to beat myself up for being to lazy to beat myself up for being too lazy to... well you get the point....

    Where is this job [makes quotation fingers] you speak of?

    Can you say? Or must it remain a secret for now?













    Good Luck!!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's play "Where is Donk Moving"
    My guess is somewhere in southern Ontario

    Hmmm... the "dot guy" could already know, and move the dot to more-or-less the right location.
    Anyone want to adopt a dog?

    I know too! Why is it I think my bags are going to much heavier when I travel west from now on? I will have to strike up some kind of deal with Garrison!!!

    Congrats on the new job!

    Here are a few hints:

    Groundhog
    Nuclear
    Water
    Brick

    I'll take my chances with their water, they don't have boil orders like we do.

    They were so impressed that I knew both of you they offered to pay for rehab.

    Congrads!!! I know how it feels to get the ^%$ out of a bad place and have the opprotunity to move to a good place.

    (some one mentioned 3 mile island) If you are going to Reading, PA for a better job, it's not a good place. Unless your going to be the new CD Director, it isn't worth it. TUST ME.

    But where ever you are going, I wish you the best wishes.

    Congrats on the new job. Hey, if you are going to the PA area, we would be the new Cyburbinites there, but I am not going until May.

    It is not in PA, it is in Ontario.

    Have to be somewhat careful/discrete, in case they look here. It is a small place also, but in a better location.
