    Hi besties, I came into work this morning and was like "I'm going to be very productive today!" and you can all see how that is going.

    You'll be fine. :) Relax and take your time recovering (depending on how invasive a surgery we're talking about) and you'll be back to the day to day grind before you know it! :p

    Sounds like how I expect my day to go. May you have at least a productive 30 minutes stuck in there to help cover for the rest of your day.

    @JoinTheSchwarz good luck with the surgery. Don’t try to be all badass when you’re done, take the drugs every 4-6 hours.

    Good evening, Besties!

    I went to check the pipes in the crawlspace under my house and the worst has happened: a pipe burst due to the cold!

    Now I have to wait to get it replaced [face_nail_biting]:_|

    Besties!!

    @The Bigger Fish and I had a serious baby conversation recently:

    Mike: How do I know the baby isn't Batman's??
    Yvette: She is very blonde. Val Kilmer was the only blonde Batman and I wouldn't have slept with Val Kilmer Batman.
    Mike: Oh... so there's no trust fund?

    Looks like we have to pay for her college after all. :(

    Only that I have a friend and my parents coming over to assist me in fixing it. My dad was in a Plumber's union so I always go to him for advice on this sort of thing. I can handle basic stuff like pipe replacement, but I still prefer the guidance.

    Thank you, besties, for the help last week. I got the offer today and it was higher than I expected. It's actually the average if you look on Glassdoor. Do I take it or counter?

    My start date would be Jan 29.
    So do I continue to work in my contracted position and just peace out and continue to earn monies?
    OR
    Do I do the "right" thing, and let my contract company know and then they get to decide how much longer they're going to keep me?
