OT: Weekly Friday "What are you doing?" Posbang Thread

Submitted by profitgoblue on June 22nd, 2012 at 10:43 AM

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.

Doing the work/lunch thing now, but tonight we're set to go see Brave and probably Rock of Ages tonight at the drive-in.  Probably going to visit my dad at a Relay for Life event afterwards.

I have a slew of financial and credit analyses to complete today - sometimes they suck, sometimes not so bad - just depends on how complete the files are.

This weekend I'm attending a bachelor party in Windsor for a high school friend who is making the worst decision of his life this July.  So, we'll try to send him off properly.

I made sure I spent several hours doing it.  I also, moved my desk phone and when it wasn't working, I was made aware that I hade put the cable "in the wrong hole" (pun intended.)  Waiting for 5pm.

At least it is that simple in your office. The software that our telecommunications group uses has each phone statically assigned to a cubicle, so you can't simply move it. If you do, it will go right to voicemail once you plug it in unless you specifically request that the calls are forwarded to that node or until the IT ticket to get the phone reassigned goes through. Yes, this is quite dumb.

Im working my ass off to make a stage gate.  Good times.  Had to take a few to check the blog.  After I'm done, drinks.  I visited the Appalacian Brewing Company (ABC) this week.  I swear the mantra of the brewery must be, "we don't want to offend anyone's palate" and so the beer was completely lacking distinction.  Do Not Attempt.

And I'm going over paint codes and colors. I can't decide what to paint my damn 71 Chevy c10. Started out thinking flat black and then well I've been all over the place. Wife likes the root beer color with a white top. I was thinking of a brown pearl with a platinum silver top. Just can't get over the idea of paying someone to paint my truck brown.

Working. Thinking about beer and hoping we don't get a hurricane from that omninous blob in the Gulf of Mexico. I deep fried bacon last night too, which is about the most awesome thing I've done in my life so far. Happy Friday!

Leaving work early to buy a used truck.  Anyone have any heads up on mechanical issues for a 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE Z71 ext cab with 135,000 miles?  I know, it's not a Ford/Dodge/Toyota/Nissan (haters gonna hate).  I have a Ford now but it's a standard cab.  I tried ratchet strapping the car seat in the bed but someone showed up at my house with an Alabama hat for me to wear ; )  Trying to dwindle my fleet by selling car and truck for ext cab truck.  Still gets 20 mpg highway with a 5.3 V8.  If any of you MGoGearheads don't have one, I got an OBD code reader and Torque for my Android phone.  It's amazing the real time info you can get for $30.

I'm here for the posbang...

I have yet to bill a damn hour yet today, gotta slog through to get home, my dad's up visiting from Ohio. Gonna try to get some landscaping done, cross things off the wife's do-to list. I thought about writing a diary on here today after I saw CRex's epic stories, I have a few funny ones I think would entertain some people on here, even though they come from a Buckeye fan.

Getting ready for a garage sale and not looking forward to dragging all of the junk out of the house just to drag most of it back in the house afterwards. Yay. 


June 22nd, 2012 at 1:28 PM ^

Enjoying (i.e. reading, drinking, smoking weed, playing with my dog)  my first full week of not teaching during summer vacation!  


June 22nd, 2012 at 1:39 PM ^

Greetings from NOLA! Here for work. Hope y'all are well! PS--one hurricane contains four shots of rum. I found this out after my third one Wednesday afternoon. Yes, afternoon. Also, my colleague texted me that her daughter was at a scholarship dinner and upon being asked what finally convinced her to pick Michigan replied that her mom's colleague did. (Me!) That text made me cry. I'm going to her open house tomorrow! Have a good weekend you guys!

Gonna meet my mom for dinner after work.  Hosting a bbq tomorrow afternoon.  Softball doubleheader on Sunday morning which should lead into a proper Sunday Funday at the bar that sponsors our team.

Wife had the day off, so I scooted early and we just got to the cottage. Very nice weather here in northern Mich. Quick PSA - anyone heading north on 75; there are a lot of state troopers out (not entirely sure why this weekend)

Trying to figure out where to take my husband tonight for dinner.  Yesterday he "defended"/presented his thesis and is essentially done with his degree, minus some annoying paperwork issues. 

This weekend may include a stop in at the MGoGetHired group on linkedin to find him a job.
