Friday Open/Posbang Thread

Submitted by hart20 on May 31st, 2013 at 3:32 AM

Everyone deserves to wake up to a posbang on Fridays so go ahead and posbang away. Share your plans for this weekend, your greatest dreams, or random nonsensical internet treasure here.


For me? Once I finish this wonderful paper, I'll enjoy a nice and long 10 hour nap, followed by playing some basketball, and acting like a mature adult by going to see Epic. 


Facing some early morning grumpiness? 


Enjoy some life advice from the office:

check clock to make sure.  

butchering up one of our steers (it's been hanging for 2 weeks) saturday a.m., graduation ceremony for some friends/kids, guests later saturday.   it appears that summer is indeed finally here.

Well, for the moment, I am pouring some coffee and sitting down to the morning news as I typically do each morning. We sort of dodged a bullet or two with some of the weather that came through here last night, but I still have small limbs sitting about the backyard from the wind that we did get. Certainly not grumpy by any means, although I might become grumpy if I go to work in an hour or so and discover that there is a storm conference call. 

This weekend is one of those weekends that could go either way for me, working in the capacity that I do. I would like to finally address a few minor roof issues and take care of some items on the long-term "to do" list, but then it could very well be the case that I will be dispatching circuit evaluation crews if the weather takes enough people out of service. If it does stop pouring buckets or if it does dry out for more than 30 minutes, I might even be able to mow at least half of the yard.

it is going to be rocky through Saturday night.  I have to say that this is one of the most bizarre weather patterns I have seen here in a while.  It has managed to be 87 degrees with 100 percent humidity and still seem "cold" at times in a really odd way.  And moisture is like appearing on the ground in front of me as I walk.  Very unstable.  I will be surprised if we get out of this thing without the "big one." (I know Genesee County got it pretty bad but so far there has not been much severe in the southern part of the state).  I fear that tonight may be the night.

Big sailing weekend starting today, it's our big One-Design regatta which means seven to nine races over Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Otherwise my ass would definitely not be up this early.  One of the biggest events of the summer.  The only disappointment is that it's sitting on top of Grand Prix weekend.

Answering in case you check, though I just got back in a few minutes ago and it's late. I'm racing this weekend on Lake St. Clair in the Bayview One-Design, which used to be the Detroit NOOD until Bayview wised up and realized they could run a better regatta without Sailing World's restrictions.  I'm racing in the Beneteau 36.7 class.  We could've done better than we did today but we got two more days of racing so we'll see.

The three stages of waiting:

1) Waiting to go into labor. The easiest of the three.

2) Waiting for the baby to come once labor starts. The hardest of the three. My wife had the epidural both times. If there is no anesthesia involved I can't imagine how bad this is.

3) Waiting to go home. The most tedious wait because it seems like it will never happen.

My opinion anyway. Congrats to you too!

Waiting in the hospital for 3 days after a c-section was rough the first time around. With #3 coming in late july we have learned to enjoy the few days after a c-section to get some rest and let the nurses take care of the little one.  

Also I know c-sections suck for the women, my wife has had 2 and wil have another one this time, but being able to plan when you're going to the hospital is sooooo nice! None of that waking up in the midle of the night all paniced to rush to the hosiptal. plus I can schedule vacation days wel in advance!

For a pos-bang. Slip out of bed, silently, Lemme go brush my teeth, freshen up a bit, wet my hair down, but not too wet, a little deodorant, check mgoblog on the iphone, some gold bond powder on the junk, try to silence a huge morning fart...ok, now slowly, I am sneaking back into bed, you never knew I was gone, COUGH COUGH oh, you are just waking up, me too. Yes, I always look this fresh in the morning - blink blink blink yawn. Last time was fun, you say? i agree. you got yours FIVE times you say? me too. Pos bang right now, this early, you say? Yes, i will be remembering it all day, fondly, thinking about this as i go about my usual business with a guilty smile. It will be our little secret. i just woke up and am definitely ready now and this is a total surprise but I like it, it's different this early, i feel alive and young again, nerves tingly, extremities moving with unexpected dexterity, thumbs fingers who knows what else in this frothy pile of pinky flesh...

Sun pours in the shades, the birds chirp and the buses are picking kids up all around the neighborhood and we are here, just you and I in the afterglow of an early morning pos-bang, I could do this forever. A soft kiss, I pull you in close, shhh don't speak, especially about mark dantonio, just let the moment wash over us and visualize you and me, us, at the beach together, all day, before going to the rose bowl later on...

in too deep.  I am in the credit card vortex big time and fear that I will never get out (until that modest inheritence comes anyway).  For those on this blog just starting out with personal finances: Credit Cards - once your in it is very hard to pull yourself out, and you will starting living the "credit card life," then it is too late.  Just say no.

hot and humid weekend here in Philly with some cold beer and a BBQ tomorrow.

I am hopeful to get a round of golf in sometime this weekend, but that is doubtful...

That is probably the most powerful wank fuel for the most narrowly-defined nerd demographic that I have ever seen.

I don't know whether I'm deliriously happy or catatonically depressed that this exists in the world. It's definitely one or the other, though, no middle ground there.

Hoping to finish last day of the month off in style in the finance world. Hoping to be out of the office by 5:30....

Then who knows what trouble comes from there - I'm young.

Convincing myself to get out of bed and shower before leaving for work. Likely going to eat something regrettable for breakfast and then suffer the effects until my 11am meeting with the consultants. Lunch will likely just as unhealthy as breakfast. 3pm with more consultants followed by sneaking out early to mow the lawn and grill. Weekend will consist of trying to figure out how in the hell I am going to survive a two year assignment in Japan without my fiancée. Hopefully, I will be able to find good live streams to watch the games.

I spent 2 1/2 years there in the Air Force, just about an hour from Tokyo.  It really is an interesting place and I think you'll enjoy it.  Learn the culture and embrace it.  Climb Mt Fuji.  Go to an on-sen (not sure of the real spelling).  And have fun in Ropongi (bar/restaurant district).

Weather looks not so good up at the lake this weekend. My buddy and I were going to go up and spend one day at Higgins and the other at Short's/Traverse City but are now shooting for the weekend of the 22nd. June weather is always very unpredictable.

Other than that just kicking back and waiting for this humidity to move out. Bring on that cool front, Sunday.
