Do I count skiing today? If so, that's $94. Plus poker buy-in tonight is $5. Saturday: Hiking (free), maybe a beer out ($5). Sunday: Gettin' paid to play (organ), then going to a classical music concert (free). Total: Either $5 or around $100, depending on how you count it. Either way, should be an awesome weekend!
@Tripleoxer I hear Loblaw's has a great law blog.
@CaddyFdot Wait, we can post pictures now??
@TheLifestyleCreep Seconded, the anecdote thing is kind of ridiculous, which gave me empathy for everyone I see on the show now. My anecdotes were dull, although the second one did make Alex laugh!
"(FYI: “Jeopardy” doesn’t pay for anything; you even pay for your own transportation and lodging in L.A. if you’re taping an episode.)" Interesting to read this tidbit...that wasn't my experience, although I was on one of the special tournaments, so maybe that's why they paid for everything. Good luck!!
Is "Take the Foil Swan" a perfect category heading for this article, Barry? Yes it is, Other Barry.
@MemphisBlues Woohoo! Look at me now, ma, I'm a public in-tee-lectual!
@totallyunoriginal Most, if not all, states have a system by which you can file online for free through the state Dept. of Revenue/equivalent.
I was definitely in a job (the one right before my current one, which I love) where grunt work was the bulk of my day. I was a go-fer, problem-solver, e-mail writer, and general do-it-all kind of person. I did it well, and my supervisor loved me, but it was definitely tough to slog through sometimes, knowing that I wasn't doing what I wanted & had no say in the "big picture" of the work I was supporting.
The Bakken shale boom story is not new. ND has been at the top of lists like this for several years. But soon enough they'll tumble hard - every boom has its bust. So not only are towns like Dickinson and Minot overtaxed by huge numbers of men & equipment & environmental pollution now, they'll also get stuck with a huge amount of useless infrastructure and inadequately remediated well sites in about 15 years. Double whammy.
