I almost bought a new tv yesterday but the salesman at Best Buy didnít close. I mean I donít need a new tv, but I want one and a good salesman could have helped pull the trigger. Very disappointing experience.

If youíre not buying an OLED from LG than I donít want to hear it.

Some combination of playing fetch with my dog/sleeping on it has made mocing my wrist extremely painful. Fortunately, itís my off hand, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

Sorry, Iím looking Samsung on this deal. Gotta go with who you trust.

I technically donít have a house yet because the sellers still need to get a house under contract before we can move forward.

Itís extremely frustrating and with every day that passes my anger towards myself for giving into these terorristic demands grow.

And Iím sorry but the LG oled is so far ahead of everything else right now I canít in good conscience not fight you on this. Thatís how much I care about you. I see them go on sale frequently, too, so donít let the list price scare you off.

I think once I close on my house and get some savings built back up Iím going to start job hunting. I cannot stand my coworkers. I know thatís a risk anywhere but at least Iíd be making more and hopefully have a better commute situation.

I'm not even involved and I'm upset that you agreed to that.

Yeah, the commute is a huge deal. I cut about 10 minutes, plus removed some train track crossings, when I moved to my current place. It made my life so much less stressful.

My girlfriend is continuing to try to find a condo and quickly running out of time. She has another few months until she actually has to move out. I think her plan hinges on getting a bigger raise in this review cycle and leveraging the expanded budget accordingly. I'm not sure. The only constant is a complete unwillingness to take any of my advice. I genuinely want to see good things happen for her, and this is killing me to watch.

Donít cry for me, Argentina. The thing I keep telling myself to give some comfort is thereís literally been 2-3 houses that have come in the market that I would have toured had I not been under contract and itís unlikely I would have ďwonĒ.

What size tv you looking to get?

And I wonít move just to move and I want to have a more than adequate emergency fund, just to be safe. Although talking with the other analyst today and his suspicion is that we might be selling out to another bank soon, so I might not have a choice. Although I wouldnít be mad if it came with a nice severance or some ďstay bonusĒ. I, personally, donít think they are looking to sell but heís known the bank family forever and maybe somebody gave him a heads up.

Iím looking at 55 or 60. Iíd go bigger but my set up wonít allow it. I have a two TV set up. One is 50 and the other 46. Looking to replace the 46 incher with something more befitting a man means.

Weíre selling some branches and the price is somewhat dependent on average account balances and so Iíve been tasked with tracking these daily balances and as part of that Iíd been sending my boss a weekly report with a high level summary of how/why balances were changing and this morning I decided to just formula it all out so I just have to copy/paste my daily data dump in.

Just as I was finishing up I get CCíd on an email that started from our CFO working itís way through managers asking if we had any way to tell why balances were changing and Iím like ďyeah, just give me a few minutesĒ and boom, it was done and now these managers have to recognize my skill and forward thinking.

Good for them to know right as you get bought out and get a whole new set of regional managers.
I'd lend a hand, but it's stuck in the fist and gun position.

Because people opened and closed accounts as well as spent their money and also we moved a lot of accounts out of those branches for the customers we wanted to keep. Nothing untoward, just wanted it quantified.

damn, i was hoping you uncovered a massive conspiracy that would make what Tom Cruise dealt with in THE FIRM look like a parking violation.

i laughed at this mash up pretty good, if only because coming to america is a top five comedy all time.

Working from home today. At the car wash right now getting ďthe worksĒ for my baby. She was just filthy and in need of a good scrubbing, inside and out. Well worth the cost.
