Saturday Night Live does "High School Musical 3"

So instead of a real update (which I swear is coming soon), I give you Saturday Night Live does "High School Musical 3". Found via iconoclast, who gets the big win for this one. It’s the normal gayness that anyone would expect and really, another good thing to come out of SNL as of late. Could it be that SNL is getting funny again, or are these just one funny in the midst of crappy?

For those who are living under a rock, or do not have a child under the age of 15, High School Musical (HSM) and High School Musical 2 (HSM2) are part of the HSM franchise that the Disney Channel has created. You can find out all about HSM here.

More things that get said around my office...

So just to add to my last post about the crap that gets said around my office, the president of the company has to out do Linda.

I was sitting down in our dispatchers (Terri) office this afternoon talking with her and another coworker (Jerry) about some stuff when the president of the company (Bill) comes and walks into the office.

So Bill says to me: "Do you say stuff like ' What's up dog? ' And ' What's up bro?' "

I reply back: No.

Bill then goes on to say: "I heard that on the TV last night. Is that how people talk these days? Is that the cool thing to say now?"

Jerry then tells Bill that he should start talking like that to which he does. LOL.

Then Bill starts about this guy (I guess a friend) who keeps calling him and leaving him messages with just country music or crap like that and how he figured this guys cell number out.

Then Jerry asks Bill what he is going to do back to this guy and Bill reply’s that he is thinking about it. Bill then says "I am not sure if I am going to belch or cut one into the phone, something really disgusting and nasty like that. Or maybe both If I could figure out a way to belch and cut one at the same time."

That right there folks is the president of the company at his best. To say the least, we were all falling out of our chairs at what Bill said. This is also why I say that the company I work for is like Corporate-America if Corporate-America was run by NASCAR. LOL.

Burning Down The House (Or Trying Not To)...

So tonight I had my first fire (in the fireplace) of my house. LOL. I got home a little past 7pm and walked in the house and thought it was a tad cold. So I look at the t-stat and notice that its 70 degrees in the house and it is only going to get colder as the night goes on. Heck, when I woke up this morning the house was at 65 degrees.

So with that, I decided that I was going to build a fire cus I am not ready to light the pilot light on my heater (yes, I am cheap). I've got a nice fire going, and its 75 degrees. Anyway, with that, time for the real update that I have been meaning to write for a while now.

Work has been work. Last week started good and just went down hill from there. For those of you who know me IRL (in real life), might know that I have been battling our gate at work. Last Wednesday our dispatcher called me and asked me if I was doing anything with the gate. I said no and asked her why. She told me that the gate just opened on its own and now would not close. GREAT!

So, after some end-run, I finally figured out who we use to work on our gate and gave them a call. They got someone down there and did some work on the gate and all seamed to be good. Then came Thursday and the gate was back to its old tricks. Called the guys back again, they came out tested everything and could not figure out what was wrong. But they told me that if it acted up again, they would come back and replace the whole control board.

Move on to Friday and I get into the office around noon and the gate is standing wide open again. So once again I call the gate comapny and they send one of the techs out to replace the control board. He says that he is also going to be the tech on call this weekend and that if I have any other issues, to call him. I had to run out to DHL which is out by the airport since I wanted to make sure a return part got to Dell. Upon my return to the office, I found the gate standing wide open.

I called him back again, and only got his voice mail. So I tried the rest button on the control board and no luck. No matter what I tried, I could not get the gate to shut. Finally I figured out a way to shut the gate. The tech called me back not long after and said that he would talk with his company about getting a quote to replace the loop sensors.

I got the quote today, and sign off on it. 600 dollars to replace both loop sensors was not bad and what we all thought would be the fix (heck, it was the only thing left that we had not replaced yet. Also today the tech came back and put our old control board back in since we figured that was not the issue.

So they all left and I had to go do some work on our network to get some UPS's and surge protectors installed. I am just finishing up when Sean (does a lot of our fleet work) comes up to my office to tell me that the gate is standing wide open again. So I thanked him, and after he had walked off screamed a cus word really loud.

I called the tech back again and told him what was going on and he just had no clue what it could be. At this point we have replaced everything in the gate that would have any affect on this. So he is going to talk with the guys at his office and rack there brain to see if they can figure this one out.

Other then that, life is good. Not too much going on, which is the way I like.
