    Heh, I didn't actually know that ... but I didn't realize they still made them in Australia still either. Already have an FJ, it's retro enough. I'd like a diesel late-90's 2-door Prado though.

    Having 9 days off from work, coming back for 5 days, then having 4 more off is always a good start!

    Took my 4 year old nephew to the fire hall for a tour. They were super awesome with him, and he had a pretty great time!

    got my marks from the latest stint at school. Given some of the math, I was pretty happy with the results. I'll go back in March, and then in September again, and be full-on done!

    Kudos man! I was always TERRIBLE at Math....always much better at English, Social Studies/History stuff - probably why my B.A. and B.Ed are in those two subjects, haha! :)

    Congrats Ben! Mine is the same way, and I am perfectly ok with that! I have the medical/dental/etc benefits, and she makes at least $5/hour more then me.

    And as far as happy? I had a lot of vacation time left over from last year, so I've been taking a lot of 3 day weekends. It's been nice.

    Man, I wish my wife made more than me. She's at school right now, so that's only a cost! Need her to start working so we can buy a place :)

    Either the Aristo or a future X100....probably just the Aristo.

    Nice rims! Did you get them for a decent deal?

    Still no full-time jobs for me - on a grant with the local library until the end of the month, subbing a day a week if I can and doing comp repairs on the side. After that, back to having no idea where my income will be coming from 9_9

    The last job I applied to last month they gave to an "internal" candidate the day after my interview, and it was only $14 an hour to move to a place that is 4 hours away...wouldn't have been worth it anyway :(

    TEH LAMEZ.

    Ouch, sucks man! Hopefully you can find somewhere! I keep checking the job sites repeatedly every day, so here's hoping something comes up soon for the both of us!
