Wassup For the Weekend • 8/18/06

Recommended Posts

After cruising and abruising earlier this week, I think I will take it easy this weekend. I picked up my new (used) car today. Here are the specs :) and some pics off the web - interior and exterior look exactly the same; I have chrome rims, but not the one's in the pics. Car has 90,000 miles and is in excellent condition - Mercedes engines last forever. Traded my old car plus 4 grand, which I think is a very good deal--the kicker being the seller is my mechanic :)

Hey Dude. Very nice car... Good luck and enjoy. Glad you had a good time with the family. :happy:

I think I'll just SLEEP this weekend. I'm exhausted.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Enjoy your weekend everyone.

This weekend? Next-to-last weekend of the summer va-K. Week from next Monday its back to the grind. :huh:

So this weekend I'll probably take it easy, but with woik hanging over me like dark cloud of doom its bittersweet.

Bit Ter Sweet!

Have fun with your new old car, Dude! And sorry about your daughter, Warflower. This whole thing has just been fraught with difficulty for you and her--I am so sorry.

Totally understand how disapointing this is, too. We've had several miscarriages over the last year and half, and every time its a huge bummer. Since we've both proven our fertility prior to our meeting, we are beginning to suspect there is something wrong. We only want one more, one thats ours together, to go with the pile we already have, lol. We need to go see a fertility specialist for some tests at some point soon--its on our to-do list.

Eventually things will turn around for you--I've been in your spot many, many times. Now I have the car I have to figure out a way to pay to keep it on the road--gas isnt cheap; lately I take a lot of busses as its convenient and I can forgo the parkiing tickets and only use the car when I need to and help the environment while I'm at it :)

I love how your romance is slowly progressing. The first time you mentioned him I believe you called him a guy friend. A few weeks later he moved on to boyfriend.

Glad it's going well. :D

Nothing planned this weekend...

My daughter miscarried :( She's with her fiancee this morning at the hospital getting a D&C. Poor thing...I feel so bad. What bothers me is she didn't want to talk about it and she didn't want me to go with her.

I'm thinking of booking a trip for the two of us...so we could bond again.

I think I'll just SLEEP this weekend. I'm exhausted.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Enjoy your weekend everyone.

sorry to hear that my dear...a little life lost....but....it could be a blessing in disguise mate.....my family`s sympathy to you and yours warflower...... :)

Thanz! It looks and drives like a new car. It has all the original equipment--and the interior is primetime - it even has the original working tape deck as well as a cd player - might update that, but otherwise I'm good to go :)

Weekends no longer exist.

After having open heart surgery and suffering through what the Dr. says is upwards of 15 heart attacks within the last year and then having one on the surgery table and now having to see a lung specialist because my heart is no longer strong enough to pump the blood to my lungs so they will function properly about all I can do is sit here.

You're obviously a survivor - hang in there, it will get better

Going to a Civil War re-enactment tomorrow at Fort Tejon, a historical park between me and Dude. One last thing to do with the family before school starts back up on Monday.

Dude: Nice car, I don't know anything about Mercedes besides I can't afford one.

Warflower: Sorry about your daughter. :(

Cerebral: Holy cow man, you're here for a reason. Glad to see you!

I start a new job on Monday, so this was to be a super fun weekend of whatever I want. It turned out to be Snakes on a Plane twice and doing laundry. At least I won't have a two day old hangover when I start, right?

A month ago I decided that selling securities wasn't for me, especially since I couldn't pass the Series 63 (despite passing the Series 6 and the state's life insurance exam, which both involved a lot of cramming). Now I basically have these licenses and nothing to do with them. But it looks good and I did learn about investing and life insurance..... just in a really expensive way. When I say that I passed the Series 6, and people know what it is, they're like, "whoa I heard that's hard," and I smile inside because then I feel a little less stupid. :D

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
