Just left the old thread and on my way back here was asked to go into a meeting with the owners. Well, it looks like all the posting on the boards has paid off. I managed to get my job done in between posts and have a nice bonus coming to me next week. Woo-Hoo! It seems they were under the impression that me taking days off here and there over the last few weeks meant I was looking and interviewing for a new job. I wasn't, but I didn't tell them that. Bonus was to make me feel appreciated. And we will also be getting holiday bonuses next month.

Now to convince DW that we have the money for me to sneak away for the DDC. Wish me luck!

Nice! Hurry up, the block of rooms goes back to Disney pretty quick here. Get booked today and if she says no, then cancel. Or tell her it's not refundable and come any way!

Hey Philip, I went back over to respond to your earlier post. I'll try to get everything together over the Thanksgiving weekend and then PM you to get it out. Sounds like a plan.

Thanks Guys. Plans for a nice dinner and Wreck It Ralph with the kids tonight. Who could say no after that?!

Will try to book a room tonight when I have a computer that will so it in less than 3 days. If not, Paul said he has room for me if I get permission. Thanks Paul.

Good job! Hope SWMBO approves so I can have one more to live vicariously through. Remember, candy is dandy but liquor is quicker.

But I do have the bullet points:
  • Fart Joke.
  • Bacon.
  • Dole Whip.
  • Princess.
  • Another Fart Joke.


5,000th POST


And in closing:
Fart Joke about a Princess eating a Bacon topped Dole Whip

Checking both threads with phone and iPad. 40 second rule still applies.

The new one gets opened when the old one is about to close.
