nice little Saturday
After much ANGAR, RAGE, and internet stupidity, we have arrived at the first of two bye weeks in the Michigan football calendar. So while you'll have a chance to redeem the mistakes you make this weekend during Wife Day II - Wife Harder, your main excuse to sit on the couch and watch football this Saturday is going back to the drawing board, working on fundamentals, and getting ready for Minnesota.
So, what are you doing this Wife Day?
(Interlude on the history of the bye week being called "wife day" around these parts:

So, what's your wife day going to be? Building capital so that you can spend it in order to watch the Michigan games in future weeks? Going to a wedding from your friends who still suck because they're getting married on a fall saturday - but don't suck that much because they picked a bye week? Watching football because it's a fall saturday? Or you're not sure if you'll have enough time?
OT: It's Saturday night and we have no life because we are posting here and talking about what we are drinking thread. .
Its that time again. Time for a good Friday posbang!
What are you all up to today? Have you found a way to avoid being productive on this sunny Friday? Are you doing anything interesting this weekend?
Me, I'm sitting here at my desk as usual, trying not to get carpal tunnel syndrome as I hammer out document after document. Howard Stern is talking in the background, providing another distraction to get me through the day, which includes me trying very hard to keep my composure with a lawyer for Comerica about language in a document. Who would have thought a mid-sized bank like Comerica would be so difficult to deal with!?
As for this weekend, I have a nice little Saturday planned. Going to take my oldest to a gourmet breakfast at IHOP and then hit the storage unit to move crap out of our house so we can put it on the market. (You'd be amazed at the amount of kids sh-t that you accumulate in just four years.) Maybe I'll cut the grass too. Not sure. Not sure if I'll have enough time.
(For all you Battlefield 3 players out there: Have you purchased the Premium add-on yet? Any thoughts on the new weapons? For you PS3ers, I set up a new platoon called "MGoBlog" (clan name "MGo") if any of you want to join. I'm playing under a different PSN these days so friend me up. I'm still playing late-night so if any of you are up late playing too lets squad up.)
[EDIT: Almost forgot to upvote my own thread . . . Done.]
Its that time again, time for the weekly "Whatcha Doing" open thread. Let us all know what you're up to this afternoon and this weekend. Anything exciting going on out there?
Me, I'm actually getting some real work done today, earning my below-market-value salary. That and trying to buy a new car because we've outgrown our old one.
I love negotiating with car dealerships but I feel bad for the salespeople because they clearly have absolutely no say in the sale/purchase. Everything goes up the ladder through the sales manager and the salesperson has to deal with all the upsetment when I hear their bullsh-t counteroffer price. Buying a new car is one of the most ridiculous processes. Just give me a price that you cannot go below and I'll take it. Stop trying to outsmart me because I negotiate for a f-ing living.
Anyone purchased a new Honda Pilot recently? If so, what did you pay for it?
So that's my afternoon. Pretty exciting, eh? To spicen things up, posbang me. <bending over>
So it looks like this might be a regular off-season thread since each of the last three Fridays I've wanted to jump out of my window here at work to put myself out of misery.
Whatcha working on today? Any good or interesting plans for the weekend?
Me, I've got the monumental task of figuring out what to get profitgowife for Mother's Day and trying to negotiate a confidentiality agreement with an a--hole lawyer on the other side. This weekend is filled with kids stuff, including a toddler birthday party at a playground tomorrow. Actually, a pretty nice little Saturday. We might make a trip to Home Depot. Maybe Bed Bath & Beyond. I don't know. I don't know if we'll have enough time.
