    Okay, tell me something that you've done, someone that you've met, or something you own that would make me and others on this board jealous. :p

    Here goes:

    I have floor seats to the Coldplay concert in Sydney in June 2006. :)

    I've seen Tool, Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle, and Ani Difranco at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA. :)

    I'm a wonderful, charming, talented, generous person full of warmth, wit and vitality... modest too. :p




    But seriously, I can't think of much except that I have a job that I love, which is relatively uncommon.

    I flew 1st Class QANTAS from Sydney to LA, then from New York to Sydney for $99AUD total.

    ^^, you didn't lose radio contact with the base, the back of the plane fell off, and you landed safely on a desert island, completely lost, with no one coming to get you...? Ho humm.

    Nice work! Can I ask how?

    Oh, and Qantas isn't an acronym anymore. :)

    *faints*

    How did you get the tour? Can you just ask for one, or do you need to ask for one after collecting a large group, say 20-25 other people?

    I've also been inside one of the buildings of the Infinity Loop. We went there to see and were invited in to attend a talk with some pretty weird Linux/Unix sysadmin security workshop or something. It was cool.

    Not a thing, except maybe my dual 2.5GHz G5 Power Mac with an X800 graphics card. Which I use for checking email. (I'm kidding! 3D design actually.)

    I have 4 iPods, I might be getting a 2007/2008 Chevy Tahoe LTZ or LS trim. I might be able to fire a Tomhawk missile from a Destroyer depending if I get in to Annapolis :)

    I don't think I have anything to list, nor do I like to brag, personally.

    Fun to read others though :)

    Um... I met Nina Hartley and she offered to spank me. :eek: She also called me a 'bitch' in the nicest possible way. Apparently, in those circles, that is a most coveted word, saved for the coolest people; that still didn't stop me from being stunned. :eek:

    It helps if you know someone who works there... ;)

    It was just me, and my Aunt, who I happened to be with at the time. She doesn't know how many people would've loved to be where she was.. Lol. :D

    I saw Steve pacing his office, in the big glass window of his that looks onto the inside of Infinite Loop. :)
