I have a second of, hopefully several, interviews with a litigation support company.  The position is Executive Vice President, and the compensation package is out of this world ( just short of a half million bucks at plan, with half of that in salary!!!), and although they called me..I think it's a long shot!!! But, I can use all the help I can get!!! Personally, I think I'm going on a fool's errand...but, heck...you never know!!!
 
I'm not only posting this for support....but also to let the newbies know....that any post-op limitations you place on yourselves are only in your minds!!! Go for it! Just F##$%ing go for it! Once again.....just @#$%ing go fot it!!!!
 
Hell, if I get this job...I might have to change my username to Lamborghini Guy, because my son has his eye on one of my Corvettes, and I've been in love with the Lambo Diablo for quite some time!!!
 
Here's a glimps  of the car I almost bought 2 years ago(thought the one I was looking at was black)
 
 It's pure sex in motion!!!! How cool would it be to pick up a loaf of bread at the corner store in one of these!!!!
 
And...not to sound too materialistic (because I value my health and my families security first...) But I own 2 kick ass Corvettes;own a $70k boat,  have a house on the golf course.....but....
 
Didn't have ANY of these before my ostomy!!!!
 
Life....is what YOU  choose to make it! The choice is your's!!!!

Sorry you have to be in suspense longer. That's the worst!! Hope it all works out. Another week of prayers by all of us should be some good.

I love the Murciellago Roadster too, I've even driven one!  Regardless, the Diablo would be a quantum leap for me, even a 10 year old one.  Besides, even if i was a lottery winner...who (in their right mind), as it relates to the Murciellago, would buy a roadster that doesn't come with a top???  You do realize it sells for about $400K!!! But, you are right...the Murciellago is a beautiful car!!!!
 
But, I live in the real world.  So, if I get this job (or, another that I'm currently interviewing for) I'm going to have to settle for one of these!
 
Personally, I don't think having to "slum it" with a Diablo would be all that bad!!! BTW...yeah..I know, I'm a capitalistic pig!  But, I just wanted to let let the newbies out there (and everyone else for that matter) realize that any limitations you've placed on yourselves, as it relates to your ostomies,  is only in your minds!!!!!
 
BTW, best of luck with the new company!!!
