Elvis is the only rock star in the world.

Long live Elvis and see you in Memphis.

Stays fresh for up to 5 years without refrigeration!

(If Elvis were alive today, he'd be dead.)

Elvis won't die. He's raised from the dead and will come back.

What would Elvis be doing if he were alive today?
Scratching at the inside of his coffin.

What *is* Elvis doing these days, then?
Decomposing.

Thanks, folks, I'll be here all week!

That's a great thread, by the way.

wSV, I had no idea you were a rock star :)

Now I know why you are so insane.  You are insane, you know.

In that thread, Spinoza said:

"Perhaps rock starts do exists, but the reason why they don't contract more often - there aren't many contracting gigs with good spiritual pay scales."


Right now, I get paid somewhat above average, and I wish I made more money, but what I get in return is trust.  That's the spiritual attraction to wherever I work. I have to make my bosses understand that I can't always work balls to the wall, that some days, sometimes at least one day a month I will call in at the last moment and not come to work, I'm late most of the time (I come to work at 9:15, no earlier).

It takes a while to build that kind of relationship.  So contracting is probably not a good idea for me.

"wSV, I had no idea you were a rock star :) "

right.  <g> for any definition of rockstar that includes 'lazy bastard', Im your man.

do you think someone will give me a pay rise?


"Now I know why you are so insane.  You are insane, you know."

seriously?  Ive felt insane for years.  I dont think anyone else knows.  Thats a very lonely place to be.

OTOH, Im not sure that a web forum is the best place to get a diagnosis, so Ill remind myself that you may be wrong.
