    I'm back ...

    ... and I'm going to finish this thing!

    I got a steady job so I'm making money now, and more importantly, I had someone yell at me loudly enough to get me motivated again.

    Woooo!

    Quit the day before Good Friday and ask for your job back when the crowds die down.

    If they won't take you back you're probably better off. Get a job at the one next door.
