I can load a tape gun with my eyes closed.

For 2 years now - went from my own very cool historical office in a 70+ year old building... to my own cube in a 70+ year old building. I do have one of those "glass brick and concrete" windows next to mine, tho - it's not a real outside view, but it's close (and, rather awesomish, considering it's mid-30's heritage, and that there's only maybe a dozen other offices like that in any of these buildings downtown). But at least I can make it home... (ain't THAT sad?)

TPBM doesn't have to slave in an office, and gets to spend all day in the open air...

Yep. The key is to not pack so much in the first place.

Edit: TnT beat me to it. Ah, well, the above response is true and fitting either way.

True. I didn't go to 3rd grade, as that was the year we spent in Cambridge, England, while my father was on sabbatical. I learned the English system of handwriting and did pretty well. We came back for my forth grade year, and I was expected to convert, which I resented--why should I keep chasing a moving target?

Yes, but it doesn't fill in the blanks on why I have such crappy luck with getting a job since I can write in lovely cursive if needed.
