OT: Friday Afternoon Posbang Thread

Submitted by justingoblue on August 17th, 2012 at 4:01 PM

Without much time left for OT threads, and with profitgoblue taking a temporary hiatus from posting these threads, I thought the time was right for another. What's everyone up to at work? At home already? Big plans tonight? Let's have some fun, it's Friday at four (for those of us in the Eastern Time Zone).

I need a little posbang action as in about 30 min I've got to head to work (2-11 PST).

Get well soon PeeWee Optimus Prime and 14 days until the Tide rolls over.

I used to live on the Gold Coast on Higgins Lake growing up.  I went to Roscommon High School.  I live in Orlando, FL now and sure do miss practically living on our boat on Higgins in the summer.  Heading up to Marquette to see some family next week though.  Looking forward to the lower humidity.

I went to M-Den today during lunch and started stocking up on new gear for the new season. Among other things, I bought a cap-clip ball marker to use at a golf outting tomorrow. I'm geeked about all of this as well as the upcoming season. So I will celebrate with a variety of beers tonight.

New M stuff.
Season only 2 weeks away.

These things make me happy.

I was at an interesting meeting with my state senator and some representatives of DTE that live in my area regarding various energy policy issues in Michigan. It ended early, but my  manager told me that I could just head on hom afterwards. Not wanting to be abad employee, that is exactly what I did. Before that, there was the usual Friday data cleansing - hopefully nobody needed any of those old work orders, right?

My wife works from 7 PM to 3:30 AM, so it will really  be just myself and the kids after 6 PM or so, and after  the kids go to bed, probably just me and MGoBlog. 

This weekend, the seasonal MGoDecorations (adding the flag in the yard this year, now that I've landscaped for it) will be coming up from storage in lieu of the season. In my mind, they should stay up all year, but apparently there are other holidays for which one decorates.

My girlfriend and I just moved into our own place, and I happened to find a framed copy of her senior picture at her parents place. Being the jerk I am, I hung it up above the couch in the living room (that kind of stuff makes her uncomfortable), and she offered to let me hang my Block M flag above the couch if I would move her picture into storage. Long story short, I have an apartment with a full sized Block M flag in the living room and I didn't even have to argue for it. Good times indeed.

It is interesting  that you mention this, because the indoor flag (to the left of the TV, if you sit on  the family room sofa) replaces a collage of childhood photos that my mother put together. That collage coming down means a few months of not having to explain why there is a photo of me kicking my feet up on a desk next to an Apple IIGS, or indeed, a photo of me wearing a bathrobe and playing euchre.

Housewarming party for a friend tonight, USA Triathlon National Championships spectating tomorrow morning, ballroom dancing social tomorrow night, engagement party Sunday. 

Gonna be a good weekend.

I'm doing the LA triathalon in September as a relay.  My wife is a marathoner, her best work friend swam at LBSU, and I...I know how to ride a bike so I'm the biker.  You should find a couple other people and do it too - you're very valuable since the swimmer leg is the hardest to find.

It's only 1:16 p.m. here on the hottest day of the year.  I just got back from lunch and plan to sit here in the A/C and not-work for another couple hours until it's late enough in the day to open up the box that just got delivered from my wine club.  But Monday is probably gonna suck.


August 17th, 2012 at 4:21 PM ^

and due to a company outing today (which I'm not going to), we all get out of work 1 hour earlier.  This is pretty much how I feel about now:

Planning epic tailgating for first home game while sitting on the beach on vacation. Can't wait for AFA game!

Also, in case you were wondering - piña colada.

I was in D.C. for work a couple of weeks ago and a coworker offered to let me use her map and travel guide of the city.  I figured I could just use the internet for that information but didn't want to be rude so I took the stuff and thanked her.  Of course I left it in my hotel room and today after work I have to go buy a new book and map for her.  Totally sucks.

On the bright side I do have a $5 off coupon for Qdoba which is near the bookstore.  #blessed

Beers will be consumed once I make it home.  It's been a long week and I need to escape reality for a few hours.
