whatcha working on?
Its that time again . . . Time for the purculator!
(Does anyone remember this song? Does it not remind you of that old Atari game called Qbert? Anyone with me? No?)
Anyway, time to find out what the MGoCommunity is up to today. Me, I've finally found a buyer for my used Accord and am closing the transaction this afternoon. Its a lot of work - notary, bill of sale, making sure funds are certified and good, etc. But I'm getting $2,000 more than the dealer offered me for trade-in so its worth it! Glad the whole process is finished though. Then its on to buying a new Pilot next week in time for the big annual family beach trip to Wild Dunes, South Carolina . . .
Other than selling/buying cars, I'll be here going through about 30 different loan documents and reporting up the chain about them. Ah, the joys of corporate America. Not to mention the fact that both of my bosses are out of their respective offices today so I get the great pleasure of being the only one servicing (no, not in the way that you think I mean) both the LA and Charlotte offices. That ought to be a rip-roaring great time! F--- me.
What are you all up to? Anything interesting? Did you just come for the posbang? If so, bend over!
P.S. Posbanged myself and it felt ooooh so good. Not too hard, not too soft. Just what I needed.
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.
In case you've already read Brian's comprehensive front pager about receivers individual stats in recent years and are looking for some good, clean fun, here's an off-topic question for those "hard" at work this warm, sunny Friday afternoon:
Watcha working on there in the office (or wherever you are)?
Me, I'm sitting on what is possibly boringest** of boring conference calls about the policies and procedures of escheating unclaimed funds to the state.
(I should be honest: I'm actually reading the blog and watching Battlefield 3 videos on YouTube as the speaker drones on in the background.)
