I’m still trying to get my hands on a copy of our appearance on the Steve Harvey show (apparently the producers don’t email back after they’re “finished” with you).

I used to race BMX (bicycle motocross). I’m typically not one to say I’m really good at things.

So I was doing my typical obsessive compulsive pay stub review yesterday (my pay stub goes online on Thursday, but I don’t get paid until Friday) just to make sure no funny business was going on. As I was looking through my gross pay, net pay, and benefit deductions I decided to take a gander at my accumulated leave. […]
