Hell, he just called me and has me doing favors!!

He asked me how it was going...my response "I got electricity"

I'll being doing name tags again, so think what name/handle you want and
list your main kite category... single, dual, quad and include it in the "official registration" roll call when announced

 I'll hear nothing out of you until you get your ASS back out here, ya walking fungo bat. From my recollection, the last time I saw a pair legs like yours they were on sale for a $1.99/pound at Stater Brothers.

I love the pic where it says the two ladies in the booth are helping a "customer". Not quite, that's ME and we're just shooting the breeze as we waited for the Mayor to speak. And the pick saying "Builder Mike Ali". Mike Ali is the owner of Zack's concession where Kite Party is. Gotta love that spot on journalism!

Nice building Dave!

Bet you are glad that the transition is almost over.

Nice looking store, Dave! You get the whole thing to yourself?


Title: Re: KP 8 Banter.....
Post by: DaveS on January 10, 2010, 09:04 PM
Indeed I do. The building actually turned out pretty awesome. Feels HUGE compared to what I had. BIG changes coming to the business this year. Lots of expansion, growth, etc. Still looking for that one PERFECT employee.....

Lynn and I stopped by this afternoon to see your new digs.  WOW!
Met Dillon for the first time.  What a nice young man.
Sorry we missed you.

Hey Dave,

If your paying 6 figures, offering 3 months paid vacation and don't want me to work weekends, then ...... I'm your man!!!

Perfect huh!  LOL

Mark


Title: Re: KP 8 Banter.....
Post by: DaveS on January 11, 2010, 09:47 PM
the beach is full of figures  :P, many more than 6, working on the pier IS a vacation, so technically you'd get 12 months, so...when do you start?


Title: Re: KP 8 Banter.....
Post by: lylenc on January 12, 2010, 06:57 PM
If I can work from home, I might be able to squeeze in some hours. I'd need to be paid more than an on-sight person. The main perk, the beach view, sucks here over 200 miles from the beach!

As Big Bri would say ... 30 more Gerups to go.

Only 28 days for me. Is a Gerup longer than a normal 24 hour day?  :)

Details: 

According to the official British translator - Big Bri -naps don't affect the gerup count.

30 was the countdown to the official KP start on Saturday.  Like with Greenwich Mean Time, you'll have to apply your own adjustment.  Mine is official start minus three!

Cheers,
Tom

I would be a perfect candidate.... if only i lived in huntington beach.   ;)

i wasn't aware that you moved into a new location!  congrats dave, that is fantastic news!  I will be sure to check it out either on saturday or sunday.  (school sucks, so I have to worry about finishing some projects before I head on over this weekend.



Title: Re: KP 8 Banter.....
Post by: DaveS on February 25, 2010, 09:28 PM
So normally THIS would be the weekend for KP, and will be getting pounded with rain Saturday. So if we get good weather in a couple weeks, the move will have been a good one!
