I have a commercial booked for Thursday and was told that I have a job at a new body shop set to open in June if I want it. Iron Man 3 starts filming here in May, if I don't get the stand-in gig for Robert Downey Jr. I'll probably take it.

Just started a new job with one of the biggest Jewish funeral homes on the East Coast and am loving it. It's a lot to get used to since I was raised Catlick, but it's awesome so far.

My business had a pretty good year. I gave everyone a raise this year and I handed out Christmas bonuses to all my employees of between $2,500 and $3,000 each. So life in this neck of the woods is pretty good. Just landed some new contracts that will keep us busy through the first quarter this year.

After a drawn out (and rather pricey) saga with my Audi over the past month or so, it's finally gone. Drew, I'm glad you didn't buy it. And it looks like I may have the money to do an M50 swap (along with some other goodies) on my E30 this summer.

Awesome! As soon as I get a new place with a garage, it's on!

I started my new job this week. With any luck I will be full time there in a few month.


And did I ever post that I finally graduated college? Becuase I did!
