Manicured or could you care less what your yard looks like?

What kind of dresser are you - classy, trendy, bold or combination/no one particular style?

Cook in/grill out or go out on a scorching hot day?

It's huge not to be in debt for college and/or a masters.  My sweet dh is an owner and so hires as needed.  The salaries are half of what they were in 2008 as that's what the market will bear.  The new hires are grateful for that.  Most of them are on the hook for college and a J.D.  Ideally, he'd also like an MBA but he stands alone in that department!  Anyway, I wonder when these lawyers will catch up and get out of debt.  As you mentioned, many times it's just better to have your large salary and no debt (other than a mortgage!).  Oh, and I can assure you dh doesn't offer free exercise classes. ;)  So enjoy and count your money!

We don't need an introduction, Sprung. As your betters on the board have pointed out, you have a bad habit of arguing about things Nobody has said. As a favor to you, so you don't look quite so foolish arguing with Nobody, I decided to show up and say those things Nobody had said.

Good news! You don't have to worry your pretty little head about what you would do if you had a master's degree, because you aren't in any danger of earning one. 

Did I say that I ever INTENDED to get one?

Boys clothes are NOT cut differently than girls clothes.

You really should introduce yourself. Can't keep away? lol

1. If you would be unhappy with your salary, okay. I'm not unhappy with  mine.

Well then you don't strive for very much. What a waste of time to go to so much college.

2. You really don't want to get into a TVC with me about th perks of exercise classes (you seem to be insinuating that yours is "better" than others').  

Ummm...I never said that. I said that was a PERK of my job now. Not many companies, IME offer free classes on premises.

3. There are many non-financial perks of my job that I haven't even begun to talk about.  (i.e. the bottle of wine and box of truffles I received two weeks ago. yum!)

That is great. We get things all year long too but we are not supposed to be comparing.

Yes, but you work for the best company on LI.  My friend (a single mom) works there too so I hear a lot.  (Check your email for her name.)

Thanks and I'll check my email. Laughing

My brother went to a different school for his two year masters degree.  Went on to do great things, Yes...

A little brag about how particular boys clothes are meant to be.  My little bitty boy goes to camp and today, after camp, I watched his private lesson in his crisp tennis whites.  And there's just nothing like it!  He looked adorable, the other boys on other courts in their whites are just as adorable as boys should be!  Like your own dd's riding clothes I'm sure, the tennis whites for my own sweet dds are just different.  But again, crisp and clean and nothing any woman would consider wearing.  Women's tennis tops and skirts are totally different!
