Sorry kids...

I know I've been neglecting my duties. I'll be in for a big update this evening (not that I'm really affecting more than 3 people by not posting anyway.) I'll fill you in on some sweet office pranks we pulled last week.

Up and running

Well, we (my roomate and I) got our gear together and are going to start detailing cars on the side for people. We've got a Porter Cable 7424 random orbital buffer that we tried out this weekend with various polish/compound/pad combos on a black honda, and it turned out really well. Picked up a carpet/upholstery cleaner last night and tested it as well with good results. After seeing what most detailers charge (200-300 for full wash/clay/compound/polish/wax/interior) We're basically going to do it for half to start out with. Around $100 for exterior, $150-175 for full exterior/interior. We'll have a good amount of product choices if you have a preference for acrylic/synthetic sealant or carnuba wax (NXT, P21s, Natty, Klasse, etc). I'll be back in the GF in a few weeks if anyone wants some work done (price is of course negotiable for friends if they want to help out.) Peace.

Puttin it down Chaska style

Well everyone, the saga of my versus the evil slumlords is over. I managed to get them to settle, we signed the paperwork, told 'em they sucked, and walked away. Life is back to normal in our new house, its really nice. We're the shadiest guys in the neighborhood though, but that's alright. We're going out to get a new mower later today since our landlord (as cool as he is) gave us a $40 wal-mart special that you can't even adjust the height on. We gave it back and said we'd take care of it. So, other than that, life is good. We've got a big kitchen, 3 living rooms, a finished basement with a theatre room, two car garage, corner lot, and a fireplace. It's all good. If you're coming to the SW Metro, look us up, we've got more than enough room to accomodate.

We've been on a spending spree at work as well, they bought us all Blackberries. We were pretty firmly against having to carry those things around, but the top brass decided we needed access to our email and network resources all the time. So, we got em. They're actually pretty cool. They interface with our Exchange server really well, giving us access to our global address list lookup and pretty much anything else available in Outlook. Plus they have possibly the greatest game ever installed.......Brickbreaker. I've burned up good chunks of my day playing Brickbreaker. Plus, if you want to look like a pretensious prick, theres no better way than walking around with a Blackberry. Unless of course, you have a bluetooth earpiece for it (which we do now) then you look like a REAL prick. Thats all for now, keep it real. I do.
