Happiness is...

A brand new job and a considerable raise in pay. Whoopee! I got the word Monday afternoon. The Human Resources lady from the main campus called me while I was in one of my evening classes. They're hirin' me to be a full-time prof at this prison unit in San Saba, but I'll still be workin' in Florence at the high school and teachin' a few classes on Base in the evening.

I tell ya, it feels good, after toilin' away as a part-time adjunct flunky for 18 years, to finally have a regular salary and a little respectability. It's gonna feel really good. I just wish my dad had lived long enough to see it happen.

So, while I'm in this happy mood, before something comes along to fuck it up, here's a celebratory musical interlude. Enjoy!





Mmmmmmm, and here's a classic. I saw these chicks in concert in about '95. Delicious. Enjoy.



I tell ya, I love the hell out of that. Y'all have a good week and we'll talk again on Friday. Cheers!

Thanks! One big purchase coming up... a huge gun safe that'll hold about 30 toys. Then I'll spend about a year paying off the mortgage on the land, credit cards and shit.

Congrats, man.

I got a raise this summer. Worse thing that could happen to me.

My boss employs loosers and slackers. I'm a loser without a trade, but I show up for work every day.

Slackers do what they want and so long as they keep coming in, they're fine.

I got a raise after having been there two years. My boss makes me feel that he's doing me a favor, so he expects more from me.

More than what? More than the slackers?

I'm glad to see you being recognised for the work you do.

Again, congratulations.

Congratulations. You're such a nice, warm-hearted fellow. You deserve everything good that happens to you. I love reading your blog, and seeing your mother all dolled up. I do that too when my son takes me out. All the best!

Good news, I guess... I work in a prison, which is lot like a day care for Satan's spawn...

I like your site, and I really like your "sayings" off to the side. Here's another...

Marriage is a lot like going out to eat a nice dinner. Your perfectly satisfied with what you got until you see what the guy at the next table is getting, then you wonder why in the hell didn't you get that.
