AKA Demonocrites

Postby Douglas Harrison » Sat Sep 09, 2006 3:04 am

Unlike many Webderlanders, I am a rather uninteresting person. Single and childless, I work six days a week in retail, read a lot, watch movies frequently, plan for future travel, and that's about it. I used to write poetry, but it gave me up.

Oh, and I like computer games.

Duuuuuuuude,

Douglas, as someone who has actually met you, and gone to dinner with you, I can say that you are far from uninteresting or boring. You do, though, have a self-deprecating way about you which borders on the unhealthy...likely a vitamin D deficiency. You need more sun. Move Souther. With some exposure, you can have good color like me.

I was kind of wondering the same thing.

Like, who let Eeyore into the room???

You're not alone on a lot of that.

Douglas, are you sure you're not just suffering from an excess of Canadian modesty?

Oh, man, I do sound mopey. And falsely modest. I must need some attention or something.

Thanks to those of you that have obliged.

Still, I honestly think my life looks a bit dull to the casual observer. Certainly I don't show a lot of personality at work, where I'm Mr. Pleasant-and-Informative-Though-Slightly-Stressed-Out. I do like to tell absurd stories when among friends, however.

If only I had friends, sigh ...

Transparently,
D.

I've been absent from the board for a while while I took a driving course through the university. I'm now licenced to drive anything on the road and can start a new career as a truck driver--my answer to a failed home business and a crappy economy.

Yay!

Hey you never know.... you could be the one and only truck driver in this forum. I am willing to bet that I am possibly the only train driver here anyway.

Thankfully no matter how bad the economy gets there is always a need to get goods from A to B and likewise a need to get people from same to same.

Huh.

Lessee. On the road. Away from an office cubicle. Decent money.

Drive on, D, drive on.

And I may possibly be the only deadbeat on the forum. I haven't worked since July 31, 2007, and have no further plans to work in my life.

I'm a deadbeat, I tells ya!

Congrats on the new career.

Thanks for the encouragement, guys. I'm looking forward to getting away from my apartment, and I won't mind the physical side of the job.

Lotsa trucking jobs in Western Canada, Iain, but they should damned well have more trains.

Hey, if you were simply "beat," you could be on the road, too.

Dougie, a very wise move. Truckers make the big bucks, plus you are on the road, your own man. Truck stops are wonderful places to find just the right brand of skank.
