Seriously, where *IS* everyone today?

I rely on this forum to keep me from dying of boredom from time to time at work! :o

Sorry, I'm stressing over creating a global Outlook address book (without the help of an Exchange server), and creating software images for several types of machines within our organization.

So I'm not really here, just taking a lunch break. Back later.

People are stressing where I work right now too... it's our most busy season, and at the same time we're moving our warehouse from Burnaby to Surrey.... but all the sales staff are staying in Burnaby :o

The words mass confusion and frustration don't do the situation justice! :evil:

It is quiet because people know I am lurking, just waiting to pounce with some outlandish insult. That or just not a whole lot going on. Been busy as hell at work, getting my house ready for sale, and having other issues that require my attention.

Was just wondering the same thing. Maybe he ran off to Vegas with Jenn and is still trying to beat the house.

More likely Jen already dumped him and he doesn't want to hear us all say "I told you so".

Gotta feel sorry for Monte....It really sucks when you're so infatuated with someone that you can't think of anything else. I was there once in my life, and NEVER again!

Yeah, I remember those infatuation days. My ex and I dated for three years before getting married. She was really good looking and we had plenty of fun. I chased her like a man possessed. In the end, the marriage only lasted about nine months. It's not that she's a bad person, but when I chased her she became consumed by the chase. I guess we all make some mistakes along the way, lesson learned. I'm glad you wised up sooner than I.

Ironically, my current wife and I dated for about nine months. This December we will have been married fifteen years. I made sure she chased me a little before getting married :lol: . But don't think I didn't sweat a little :wink:

Speaking of missing persons, what happened to Buddaha TB, Spazmogen ( haven't seen much of him since the Buffet concert ) and UALOneKPlus.

Are they still mods but busy elsewhere?

Me too, but I was 16. :roll:

I dunno where Spaz is. Maybe he joined the Buffet tour as a roadie. Bhudda still shows up every once and awhile but I think he's more into shoes than drives these days.

*waves*

and Jennifer and I are still on track for getting wed. In fact Jennifer was out and about on Saturday looking at wedding dresses.
I was out in Utah last weekend visiting for 4 and half great days. I got the fun of being with her looking for a wedding dress with her then.
