    Not a big one, but it was the biggest my boss was able to give at this time. In the past year, many in our company have felt like we wern't sure if we'd have a job at all come the year's end. I'm just happy to still be employed! :)

    Drinks are me tonight folks!! :cheers: :monkeydance:

    Does this mean you'll be fielding an Ashford team in 2008?

    Congrats on the moolah!

    Nice work!

    What are you gonna buy? (besides drinks)

    I got a raise last month too. My extra money will be used to pull myself out of debt :(

    Do it! We'll make you all temporary Team Elevate members for the day (this fabulous package includes going down to the creek to, uhhh, smoke something, drink a lot of Labatts with Viciousdher, get sunburnt, ride a little and wash Tigg's bike!)
