New Statue

Completing my Homer Simpson cube, is the Syroco-Style statue from Dark Horse #427/550. Great sculpt and detail and a new take on a classic character

My New Favorite Shirt

Since I can't get enough of The Man With No Name Trilogy, when I saw a customer wearing this shirt, I had to know where I could get one for myself: Target of all places.

So far its turning into a great place to work. I've already applied for the open FT spot in our dept. We are no-commission, but bonuses do abound if we meet our sales budgets, especially on services, GSBT, and branded payments. I'm learning alot, especially from one of our FT's, David. If there aren't customers to help, there's o…
