    A personal milestone. Sorry boss it is at your expense.

    With this post I have achieved a personal milestone, at the expense of my boss and the productivity of my company.

    I have been pursuing this milestone since July of 2002 when I joined this forum of bright, enthusiastic, motivated, funny, coffee and beer drinking slackers and slacker wannabe's.


    With this post CLUBBE ME

    YEAH what a way to celebrate the holidays.

    I am glad that such a "superior achievement" has brighten your seasonal holiday spirits.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    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.

    Welcome to the first level of slackerdom
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    Thank you all for the kind words, support and welcoming me with open arms to the first level of slackerdom.

    It was a long road, but I made it. Hopefully the 2000 clubbe will not take me 2.5 years.

    Thanks again.
