Got laid off
 
Oh well, back to stripping

Damn, sorry to hear Shady :(

Pictures or it didn't happen... ;)

Found a roof over my head. Going to move in Friday next week. Just one more week to survive living in hotels. Better start looking for a some "emergency furniture". I.e. cheapest possible and disposable when I get my own stuff shipped back from Europe some day in a not so near future.

Second day at new job. Kinda odd being the authority when you can't do rents due to apprehend being behind. My ankle/Achilles tendon is giving me a lot of trouble after it was partially torn and never really healed.

F*** getting laid off. It's good that you still have some income for a few months at least.

Shady did. As for moving back, let's just say I missed the climate and the geckos ;)

Dammit Shady that sucks! I know how that feels. Hopefully they sent you off with a decent severance.

No that answer is lacking in accurate information, Gorth please dont break your record by being laconic or nebulous with your views  :yes:

 

What do you mean by weather ? The UK only has good weather in summer...you knew that ? But why not go back to Denmark,,,,where do your friends live? In Oz I assume...so do you consider Oz your home ?

You should know by now that I'm almost physically incapable of lying... not even the little white lies. Truth is indeed that i missed the pleasant climate here in the sub tropics. Denmark is even worse than the UK, being cold and miserable 11 months most years. As for "home" and friends... being an old introvert I never had a large social circle, a few good friends, several of which I've had for 2-3 decades are not deterred by a bit of geographical distance. Besides the weather, I just felt claustrophobic in Europe. Whether in Germany or the UK, it was like it didn't matter where you went, if felt like there were hordes of people everywhere and endless queues of cars, even on the smallest of country roads. I just needed to get back to a place where I can get away from people when I feel like it, open empty areas without any people nearby just an hour or two away.

Now we talking, you see the difference? Your ability to make a good post  is always better than me guessing :)

 

Okay that reason makes perfect sense, you require wide spaces to function properly and feel normal, this is not uncommon. Its strange how I am the opposite, i get bored and a little anxious if I am out the city for more than 2 weeks or so 

 

Also this confirms what I suspected last time, you are very good at your job. Yes ERP systems are complex and can take time to learn but I imagine once you have your experience you can work in any country in the world as there should always be SAP, JD Edwards or Baan (not sure which you do as you didnt mention it )  :thumbsup:

 

For those confused by my post basically Gorth is an ERP consultant and he is very fortunate as he move much less effortlessly as he can generally always find work....am I right or am I missing something, be honest if I have this whole thing wrong  :biggrin:

Earlier today, I sat in a 3 our board metting that got very heated. I told the rest of the board that I would resign if the club didn't start acting more professional and put up suggestions on how to do it and why. At first people were reluctant, but most of what I wanted was accepted at the end, so I'm happy and tired.

I had a new sliding glass door installed yesterday (in replacement of the old janky one) and it looks great. We got one of those kind that has the shades built-in, between the layers of glass, and I cant stop myself from sliding them up and down.

You have made a typo I assume ? You wrote " I had a new sliding glass door installed yesterday " didn't you mean to say  " I installed a new glass door "  ....Gfted1 you know we never let anyone do DIY.  We always do it ourselves, it defines our manhood and I would be shocked if you had compromised your manhood in this way?

 

Think about what people on the forum would think?

the question is a bit... gauche.  is current 567 recognized tribes.  is a considerable number o' tribes still not having recognition.  each o' those tribes is gonna have its own traditions.  and keep in mind just how geographical large and diverse is the United States.  not surprising then that the indigenous peoples would be diverse as well.  

 

*shrug*

 

our christmas dinner, when we could afford to do christmas dinner, were not too unfamiliar.  christianity is common 'mongst the lakota, with catholicism being the most common denomination. and our family were catholic.  we celebrated christmas.  always had some kinda decorated tree.  for dinner we perhaps had turkey or pheasant or perhaps a roast beast o' some kind. couldn't always afford an extravagant meal, but gift giving were a tradition 'mongst the lakota long before europeans and christianity arrived, so we always exchanged gifts, even if were small stuff. menu items which might be unfamiliar to bruce would include wampanackali (which we believe our grand father learned from a huron or iroquois, so is not a lakota recipe and would not be common at other lakota christmas dinners) fry bread, wasna, and plum cake.  

 

HA! Good Fun!
