    hmmm... I have a bad feeling I'm going to find that to be true in a few years (well, so much for fantasizing).

    I guess I should have said: Where will you end up slaving yourself for 80hrs/week?

    I had a mate from Herts that did the sleep thing.

    I also had a mate that would check into one of these test centres to get extra money as a student. They paid sh#t loads. The centre was placed in one of the most economically deprived ares in the UK and the option to make money testing stuff was a popular one for many....Who knows what the implications for those people will be.......

    My dream job would be one where my manager know's what they are talking about, and I don't spend my day dumbing things down so they can understand me. I thought managers were supposed to know what they were doing before they started to manage their respective departments?????
    What's a matter you no like peppi?
