OT: Friday Afternoon "Whatcha Doing?" Open Posbang Thread

Submitted by profitgoblue on May 18th, 2012 at 1:10 PM

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>

Just finished clinic.  Waiting on lunch from Jason's deli.  Checking MGoBlog for the first time in like 4 hours... that's a long fricking time for me...  

Not looking forward to an afternoon of charting.  Maybe I'll posbang myself.

Wal-Mart Wolverine.

And proud of it. Why not? I even had "It's great to be a Wal-Mart Wolverine" in my sig until Darius Morris told some Sparty hoopster where to go. I did get into Michigan during my undergrad round of applications, but I knew where I absolutely wanted to go to school within 10 minutes of arriving in Charlottesville. So like every good Sparty, I chose not to go to Michigan. U-M returned the favor when I applied for grad school, so I guess we're even.

Yeah I understand ... I'm at Wisconsin working towards a PhD, so I get to soak up the atmosphere & enjoy it when the Badgers do well, but it sure doesn't bother me when they lose.  I went to a small college for undergrad, but my career really got started at Michigan where I worked as a lab tech in MCDB for a year & a half.  I don't feel too Wal Mart-ish about it because my family history is absolutely packed with Michigan degrees & employment, including everyone in my immediate family & going back through the generations.

Hike and caught my first rainbow trout this morning. Now it's time hit the vaporizer, get ready to head out of town and possibly go see "The Dictator" this afternoon. After that, I will continue to celebrate American Craft beer week.

I will describe my work from left to right - there is a stack of Continuous Improvement items which I need to update and send downtown, then a pile of service requests from which I need to generate some work orders. Moving to the dual-screen Dell computer, on one screen there is a process flow in Visio, and then on the other screen is MGoBlog. Beyond that, there is a phone with no messages on it (thankfully),  and a stack of things I did in fact do this morning, not the least which would be yearly evaluations.

Rather be on BA

Avoid caffeine starting....now! 

Go run.  Go workout.  Go get laid.  Burn all your MCAT sh*t right now!

Put beer in the fridge, tequilla/rum/vodka in the freezer.

Get the lube ready because you will feel chafed afterwards.

Start hitting the bottle.  It will help with the slow, sinking feeling you will have afterwards.  Doesn't matter if you get a 28 (first attempt) or a 33 (second attempt).  You will always feel like you did sh*tty.
