    After almost 21 months of unemployment, I have finally landed a new job. I begin work on May 17th and I am very excited! It's been a long time since I've been this happy.

    I know none of you who are reading this know the least bit about me, but this hobby and this message board (among other things) were very instrumental in helping me keep my spirits up during this difficult time. Whether it was the argument about if Revenge of the Fallen and Animated sucked or didn't suck, the influx of LEDs into the world of Radicons custom Transformers, about how nobody can find new DC Universe Classics figures to buy or whatever it was, TFW2005 proved to be a great distraction for me. Thanks to everybody involved.

    Congrats, it's hard finding a job out there. I've had mine for almost a year after being unemployed since 2007. Good luck with the new job man, what will you be doing?

    Suggesting mowing lawns is almost a joke now a days. Lawns are all maintained by small businesses.

    Actually, I heard that back in January. The IRS hit me up for over $1,000 this year. Funny how that works.
