The fact that the owners of the company I work at feel the need to have some PC slob install spyware on the Macs in the creative department tonight. Sure, it's easy to disable, but these people who don't even know what a forum/blog/newsgroup, etc. is, yet when they needed a crapload of hits on a YouTube vid and while coworkers were sending emails to their 7 or so family members for hits, I took it to the Monkey and you guys owned it. :cheers:

But God forbid I check in during the day on RM.

I'm thinking Portland. Anyone need a graphic designer up there?

I have no idea where I am
Someone once told me that if I wasn't a metalsmith that I would have been a comedian or a famous criminal.

At one point I thought of dropping out of art school to go to culinary school.

I've also considered each of those paths, but they all require more work than a company just leaving me alone to think and design which equates to their BMW and Corvette payments being made.

Why?

Sick riding, met some great people/riders in the last 10 years who don't whine about the heat and downtown PHX is a ghost town on the weekends so most of the street riding is hassle free.

I've had a pretty great experience here.

Winter's coming. Where else is there for riding?

sounds about right. 405 is a parking lot pretty much 24/7. There's a few hours overnight that are tolerable.

What part of LA are you staying in? I'm just south of LAX, I know a few tolerable bars in the area.

I'm at Sunset & 405 this time around. Sometimes I stay at the Travel Lodge on Pico in Santa Monica. We'll have to get together to see who can drink more beer.

gotcha. Hollywood is like an hour from me if there's traffic.
So...that's like 2 blocks?

Wife and I would like to sell everything we own buy an RV travel to a beach somewhere or until the RV dies and set up shop and live like bums.

I wanted to be an archeologist or marine biologist when I was a kid.

When I lived there myself, I liked the riding, I didnt mind the heat, I just didnt like the city itself, too many people from too many different places usually added up to too many stupid little problems. Hated getting my car broken into once a month hated hearing gunshots all the time.....


But then again, I lived on the complte other side than you do. I defently liked your side better.

What's keeping you from leaving the US altogether? Cairns, Melbourne, Singapore, KL, London, HK I'd all personally have no trouble living in.

These little things called visas are the reason I don't live abroad. Since the evil empire makes it so hard for you guys to come and visit here (much less live/work) then the rest of the world pretty much returns the favor to us.

Last I went thru customs coming back from South America I couldn't believe all the crap that visitors had to go thru. Digital fingerprints and extremely confusing forms were only the tip of the iceberg. :crazy:

I think in Stinky's line of work these problems are lessened as companies are willing to go to great lengths to first get and then keep the right people. It's fairly easy for professional type Americans to live in Australia for example.

That's true. I actually looked into moving to Australia after I spent 3 months there but the type of careers that they needed to sponsor were all very specific. I ended up getting a year long work visa for NZ but I had to come back slightly before it ended. I think the max in Australia for US Citizens is (without being sponsored) is 4 months and you have to get really lucky.

thanks SkinnyMike and Brungeman, i needed the laugh!!! sorry but she's already has her "soulmate". she's been cheating on me for a year and i never suspected it. ends up being a guy she works with. and no she isn't hot, at this point i'd say she's easy, but not hot. and now that i know what i know, i look at her in a totally different light, and i just cant stand to look at her, and i know i would never touch her again.

oh, thanks to you too IAB for the smiley thingies. it will all be over soon and i cant wait to tell her i know all about her affair!!! MUHAAAHAAHAAAAA!!!!!
