    Well, they do say that work is the curse of the drinking class.

    I don't get 'em. :approve: Sometimes a mild headache and some disorientation, but that's it.

    I drank a whole bottle of aftershock one night before a final.

    BAD idea.

    Learn from my mistakes. Don't drink whole bottles of 80 proof alcohol when you have some measurable need to be alive the following morning.

    I correct myself. I had 1 nasty one about 20 years ago when I was still diabetic. Shots were 1.5 ounces, but my psycho bartender Lynn usually overpoured. One night she stuffed 26 black Russians into me. I didn't sober up for 3 days, and then I was sick for 3 more. :yuck:

    Welcome to the world of us working engineering R&D stiffs! There's nothing like it. I interviewed with your soon-to-be employer when I just got out of college myself (if it's who I am thinking it is. Your clue was pretty good).

    You actually made me laugh to myself. I know the clue was pretty abstract and vague, but I think I did get it.

    It was pretty obvious, except for his location. I was pretty sure I knew who he meant, but I hadn't really ever thought of them having design facilities in the UK.
    Oh, by the way... congrats Noggie. I'm sure the degree won't be a problem.

    Way to go!!

    That's my understanding. Congrats on the new job!!! And you sly sucker, you still managed to get the summer off...what a deal. Your parents can't complain you're home not looking for a job because you've already found a job, but it doesn't start yet. Great planning. :biggrin:

    Awesome, brewnog! Way to go! When you start getting those regular paychecks, you can buy us a round of drinks, what say?

    Yeah baby! New Zealand here I come!

    I've already started rubbing it in that I get to legitimately doss around all summer! Mwhahahahahaha!

    Yeah, you're right. Sadly I won't actually be designing the big yellow machines in the UK, (have to wait a few years for that), but will mostly be working for the bit which makes (and designs) engines and generator sets. Hopefully though, I'll still get to, urm, borrow a digger for the weekend, every now and then! Woo woo!


    Thanks everybody!
