So, um, hi. It's been a while...

Hey guys. I'm sure some of you remember me. I just wanted to say hi, as it's been a while since I've popped in.

What's new? Well, I left the company I was working for, got a job with a marketing company and worked on projects with Google and LG, then left there and started my own (thriving) insurance agency.

Oh, and I got married.

Life's been pretty epic.

I am now accepting questions about my past shenanigans.

Not so much. The only thing of note is that my synagogue and one other hire me somewhat regularly for Lag b'Omer (google it, it's pretty awesome -- Jewish holiday all about barbeques and bonfires).

Liberated many. Also got one of the last maneki neko ducks in production. And left that company behind because the district manager I worked under was Sir Jerkwad.

Good to hear that all is well and good in your world, seems like a few of us have gotten married.

One of my Psych Profs and after I passed his class, friend, is a Rabbi, and I used to get invites all the time to Jewish holidays at Synagogue. He knew there was no hope of converting me, but I still respected their beliefs, so I was a welcome guest......not to mention that I make a really good Kosher (or Halal, for Muslims) BBQ mutton in the old Kentucky style....

That's freaking awesome.

Yeah, we get to go to these huge Chabad bashes with barbeques, drunk singing, and bounce castles. It's just a ball.

We didn't even have a bar at our wedding: just a table with all the booze on it. People were taking bottles of tequila back to their tables and pouring for everyone. Anarchy at its finest.

Hey man, congrats on the wedding and the business. You still trying to walk around naked in your yard? Please let me know so I can avoid the area.
