    Put the liquor store on speed dial. You are going to need it.

    Congrats. Hope all goes well and you are soon in the ranks of the employed.

    Don't drink away all of your first pay check.

    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.

    Let me know after the "checkered" past is clear and then I'll feel some ambition.

    Congrats!

    Go visit the Wal-Mart Superstore! Seriously, isn't that about the most-visited attraction in town?

    Congratulations! I'll send you a PM the next time I visit Wyalusing.

    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!'"

    yep. I've got the Sierra Nevada Porter sitting right next to me as I type. I'm still flying pretty high, but getting the new job jitters now. The old "oh FOCK. Now what?" ideas. Guess I just have to get in there and plug away. This'll be my first planning job. Sure I've had internships, but they're different.

    Congrats! As stated before, go grab a cold one to celebrate! But don't drink your first paycheck - save it for later, when you'll really need it!

    Sierra Nevada? I'm sorry, my friend, but you will have to get rid of that swill. New Glarus Brewery. Capitol Brewery in a pinch.

    Oh, the shop happened, but not from me! Just as I was tooling up get something accomplished, rumors started floating about another guy from ID doing one. Turns out he's doing a bang up job too.

    Kinda burned on the NG actually. Capitol would have been a great choice, but I really wanted a Porter, and the SN was all that was there. Still went down good!
