Guess I'm doing something right. 18.8% raise.
I'm so buying a new bike, and a WRX.:cheers:

or...

Setting aside more money for savings, realistically.

Congrats.
Thats a pretty fat raise, especially in this climate.
What are you going to get for a new bike?
I know that Subaru is giving away loans, so this is a great time to buy.

Stoney, I think it is time to hold a Bay Area RM Holiday Party at your place.

I don't do loans. I'll be setting aside the funds for savings. Maybe I can save up enough to buy an 09 WRX in two years. Interest in my friend, interest is my friend.

A round of drinks at the Zeitgeist?
Do you not remember the looks the dirty emo, wanna-be messengers gave me the last time we were there? It will be far worse now that I am full on suit.

But then again, a round for the bar will cost $7...

I went to Agnostic Front with TheMontashu, and a short dude in a red leather jacket said I looked like an undercover cop.

Looking into the mirror, I did!

Of course, I wish I had told that guy, because he was so short and ugly, "Hey I thought you were a dy*e!"

Iab: I'm somewhat niche at my firm. I have a financial background, and a strong understanding of the healthcare sector, and I am our only west coast employee that knows this. I also am very good at building relationships within this niche. They also one that I was interviewed by a competitor. They have a lot nvested in me, so they want to keep me around.
Nick: I have a 4% fxed rate, FDIC insured savings account. While not high, far better than other options.

Thats all fine and good, but you're dodging the important question ...

No. Financial Software Sales.
Bike: Who knows. I'd like a new set of Fulcrum Racing 1 wheels for my roadie, along with a carbon bar and post, AND a set of Look Carbon/Ti pedals.
I'd also like to lighten up my current NRS with a Talas and some carbon bars. Then again, I'd LOVE a nice long-travel trail/race bike...
So many choices...
