    Don't know about the pros but you will do preps.
  3. Anyone interested in the position should give me a shout on private mail.

    Just call it an NC-17 version of Clarissa Explains All, and Melissa Joan Hart's nowhere in the building.

    I worked with a guy who came from Galveston. Biggest bullshitter, and eater of watermelon, of all time.

    I would kill for that to be my epitaph.

    P.S. I've always had a thing for Galveston, at least since I read Isaac's Storm and went down there to see the buildings that survived. I also pushed back a bucket of beer that afternoon.

    What this has to do with this job, I have no idea.

    eater of watermelon... ???
    Gee, Jones, along those same lines, I went there frequently as a kid.

    Well, since people frequently ask about the area they might be working, anything you can add would be of value.

    Not sure if dietary habits add all that much to the discussion, but good restaurants could make the deal.

    Yes, eater of watermelon.

    I got a postcard from Galveston about 6 months ago. Fantastic eye candy.

    Never been there. Isn't it on the gulf?

    Yes, it's an island 50 miles south of Houston that sits in the Gulf of Mexico

    The sand is too rough for me, but then, it is still the beach.

    An island? Sounds like Catalina, about 26 miles from Long Beach.

    Nothing like a hoops game at Avalon High on Catalina Island.

    That may be the first time Catalina and Galveston have ever been compared. But yes, Galveston is surrounded completely by water.
