    Six weeks of accumulated leave and backdated pay after a payroll error. A unique experience never to be repeated.

    Longest period worked without breaks?

    Like, at the same job or in the same shift ? same job, no clue. come to think of it, no clue same shift, either. I did, however, do a 14-day stint at an auto parts store one year when everyone else got fired or quit. That was less than fun.

    best job ever had?

    I love being a writer and bringing my stories to life, but right now I'm a full time caregiver to my aunt and that feels pretty damn good.


    BBQ or take out?

    depends on the day and who's doing the barbequing. :D normally, i'll do the 'cue.

    Someone gives you a hundred bucks and you *have* to spend it at a store, inside of an hour. What do you get?

    A new toaster, a bucket, some plastic cable ties, compost, a new clothes-line, and a pulley. If I have extra, then I'll spend the rest on some good cheese.

    Again.

    my work hours are all over, so it's hard to keep one bedtime, though midnight has been winning out lately.

    Best male voice ever?

    Way too difficult but I'm very fond of Marvin Gaye at the moment.

    I'm lacking a socket wrench set :( but other than that, I'm good (for now).

    Most interesting item on your desk?

    Why did it say there was 14,000+ new posts and then 10 seconds later it had changed to 12,417? (Speedy reading or what.)

    When you go to a thread all the posts that have been added since you last read that thread, are new. Once you access the last post of the thread, the new posts are deducted from your unread post total.


    Having a nice day?
