and after 3 days, he is risen!

If you are paying $20 for a haircut, I imagine people assume you did it yourself anyway.

Pocket change cost me my first and only black girlfriend.   It was in the middle of a roaring poker boom and I was flush in ways most men don't even bother dreaming of. Money, it was like dirt to me

I googled my pretty specific symptoms and all that came up was "something is wrong with your gallbladder".
Did you mention that to the doctorb?
Well then at least you know it ain't lupus.
Heh.
Oh, I was just trying to be snooty. I think there are some minor differences between sorbet and sherbet.
Actually, I feel like this is the snootier of your statements on the subject.

I did not. He seemed pretty confident that it was just a viral thing. I figured he's the doctor and I'm just an idiot with the internet. And if I have a job on thursday it'll be a miracle. I took last thursday/friday off and then called in sick today. I'm using a halfday tomorrow because I have to go to Omaha for my next test because I want to get in and have time to study that night, and I'll be out on Wednesday as well. I'm probably going to just go in early tomorrow and work on some stuff since it's month end and I'm the only one who knows what I do and somebody else relies on me getting it done in a reasonable time.

I very much enjoyed that, at least the parts I understood.
yeah I didn't understand any of it.

oh no no, you'll be fine. there's no need to go in. you just stay at home and rest up. they won't care, I promise!(strat you should maybe put an application in at napa's company now, fyi.)

I guess...so someone like Rebecca Black (maybe a bad example but all I can think of right now) is "real famous" but he's "e-famous", even though their respective levels of fame both originated from the internet?
Who's Rebecca Black?
Welp, just did a google search of my symptoms and looks like I should probably go to a doctor, but I don't have one in this area. How do I do this? I don't think I need to go to the ER, but I do need to go. Do I just call a hospital?
Start going to Kevin Rahner in Johnston. He's at the Mercy Family Clinic, and he's like the greatest doctor in the history of the world. I can not possibly emphasize how great he is.
Got to visit the burial ground of Christ and touch the wailing wall (and wear a yarmulke) today. Not very exciting for me, but I'm sure Brv would have enjoyed it (minus the yarmulke).
I would only be interested in visiting Israel because it's in the Middle East, and I love the Middle East. I have no special desire to see anything in particular.The order of the places I desire to travel:1. Jordan (Petra)2. Australia (anywhere)3. Antarctica (anywhere)4. China5. Egypt (mainly around Cairo or Alexandria)6. Anywhere else in the Middle East7. Afghanistan (It's only this low because I've already been there. But I loved it and want to go back badly.)8. Pitcairn Island/Easter Island/Galapagos Islands (There are all in the same general area)9. London (Museums only)10. Amsterdam (Museums only)

Would you say that there are more attractive doctors out there, but none who would take you on as a patient?

Brv,My wife went to Petra with her Israel mission and loved it. Apparently, not much in the way of Indiana jones souvenirs tho.
That's so awesome that your wife had so much fun fulfilling all of my dreams!

There is not a more attractive doctor on the planet.HGPY00C4848A875712589.jpg

Woke up feeling good, which is not going to help me convince my boss I was really sick yesterday. Should have gotten a doctors note, dammit. On the negative, I also woke up drenched in sweat, which is just great cause I just washed my wonderful sheets 2 days ago and now I have to wash them again.

So there I was, standing in the middle of four pissed off employees who were about to draw blood over being asked to stay late for the third night in a row..."Come on guys... I gotta get this stuff out by next Monday or the bastards will dock me ten percent"(bitching and griping)"How bout overtime and paid vacation time...huh?....that should make the wives and mistresses happy...right?"(Best Dean Martin impression)"I just cant do it""Me neither""Sorry Bea...."Yeah...I lost itFifteen minutes after firing everyone within earshot, which I was later told was three blocks away, I was packing a small suitcase while the wife stood by observing..."What happened?""Im done""With what?""Everything""Me?""Nah... you and the kid are the only reason Im leaving for a while""Yeah?""If I stay around any longer youll probably be on a witness stand defending my killing spree""Take more underwear...you know how you....""Take care of things, k?""How long will you be?""Month....maybe more""Ill let Jan know""Bye"Four hours and forty minutes later I touched down at North Las Vegas, replaced the Jeep with the bird in the hangar, and headed off into the desert. Well, after a short ten hour stint at Main Streets twenty one table and more micro pale ales than any human beside myself can consume, that isThe following weeks were somewhat of a blur. The wife tracked me via debit card transactions so she can paint a much better picture than I can of the events. I bounced around mid to southern Nevada for a while before hitting the southern west coast, gradually heading south where Shane met me in San Diego. The border was crossed, enemies were made, livers were damaged, and at least twice our lives were hanging by a thread. Surfacing back in the states, we gathered a group of renegades for the first annual race across the mojave road from California to Laughlin. First for us that is. After the midnight raid by park rangers, we dispersed back to Vegas where I was later told Shane broke the four wheeler on public highways distance record by several miles, entering fifteen at blue diamond and exiting off downtown. I know he made it there because he valeted the bike and I picked it up the next day. Rumor has it that there is amateur youtube video of the feat floating around but I havent pursued it yet. Im actually afraid toSo after a few more days of tom-foolery, I put what was left of the Jeep back and brought the bird back home. As I figured, my terminated employees got the jobs completed and shipped out on time along with the other pending projects. Well, maybe not exactly on time but well within our standards of doing business. A few days later I fried a turkey for the holiday and got back to doing normal things againWhat did I learn from all of this?Im glad you didnt ask...Pacifico is a great beerMichael Jackson didnt own a house in ParumpCustoms officials have a terrible sense of humorJoshua trees are much tougher than they appearIt never makes sense to double a pair of threesAnd the most important one of all...When you feel like youre going crazy.... go ahead and go crazy. Cant do nothing but help, no?Ive made a few notes reminding me of unusual situations that occurred.... Ill randomly convert them into stories in the future. Now if youll excuse me I have plan next weeks vacation details....I sure could use oneHope all are well...

Yep...everythings the same around here
EXCEPT THAT DAWSON IS TURNING INTO SHAKE/NAPA/STRAT WTH.Applicable posts below.
So I got an offer from a PE firm today. It expires tomorrow. Thursday I have an interview with a firm that I want way more. What should I do?
Unless they'll extend the offer, I think I'm gonna roll the dice. I'll keep you updated on how this turns out, in as smug of a manner as possible.
Got the offer delayed til tomorrow, interviewed today, waiting to hear back about it (they know about my timeframe). Trying to keep my shit together.
Yeah, must be fuckin' rough dude. Praying for you.
Napa gets it
Rolled the dice, turned down the PE offer...haven't heard anything since my interview yesterday from the firm I want (they know I had an offer that expired today, so I thought I would have heard something...)
I have heard from the firm I want, but nothing definitive yet...still hoping/trying not to freak out.Now you're updated on the thread.
