Two checks that were supposed to come in last week haven't arrived yet and they won't clear in time, I just went into the red a little because of an annual bill, and the job I applied for is still up in the air. They're still interviewing until the middle of the month and won't decide before the end of July. :mad:

:sad:

That means you're coming to the NYC con instead!

Aw, man! I was looking forward to meeting you. That sucks.

Well, I hope everything works out for you in the end. Good luck

Nope, WWT! BBQ is on me tom. ;)

Randy: I'm hoping NYCC is in the cards! Just need a job. :)

Chris, same here, brother. I was looking forward to hanging with you guys and help man the booth for a while so some of you can walk the floor or go to panels.

DynastyForce, I'm an old school kid from former Communist East Germany and am not a fan of taking out loans for something like a business trip/vacation. Ask around and people will tell you that I've been quite successful networking via the internet so far, so the one advantage of being at SDCC a letterer like me may have is pretty much moot. I wanted to go to finally meet industry friends face to face and make new ones and can wait a while longer. ;)

Clint, since I'm hopeful to get a job soon regardless, WWTx probably won't work, either, this year. The first six months are usually a period where you don't get vacation time when starting a new job here. NYCC is borderline possible. :)

Not to hi-jack your thread, but I'm curious if you have a favorite Bundesliga team? I have followed the German National Team for Decades and just within say the last 4 years started following Bayern Munich.

I just read not to long ago that Bayern aquired Klose and I'm pretty stoaked about that.

Dude, hijack away. My threads usually die after 6 or so replies, so anything to keep it going. ;)

I followed the Bundesliga when Cottbus got in at the end of the 90s because of local patriotism when studying there, but lost interest again when I switched degrees and moved to Magdeburg. :surrend:

Adam, are you out in Cali now?

I said it once, and I'll say it again....noooooooooooooooooo!!

I was hoping to buy you a brew and thank you in person for a lot of the good work you've done for me and Chris.

Seriously, that sucks.

Yup. Me, Michelle, and possibly Dave.

Have fun, y'all, and I want photographic proof of the debauchery!
