Quarter End

30 Sep

Yay my last quarter end I will have to go through again is over. Well, last one on my side at least. And in true quarter end fashion, I was there for a good 11 hours. Ugh. At least I got some over time which is great…..if they want to pay me time and a half bring it on! AND I just found out one of my best friends from college will be in Charlotte tomorrow since she is flying out Friday night. That means I can leave work early, meet up with her and catch up!

We had our team building outing at work yesterday. I was kinda hoping we would do the whole cross-your-arms-and-fall thing, you know the trust test? But no dice. We got to go bowling instead at the newer swanky Strike City.

Yeah, not your typical bowling alley. There were only a few people eating there and we were the only group bowling, which I thought was a little odd since it was lunch time and at the EpiCentre.  In a never-ending search to find the best nachos in Charlotte, I had to try theirs.

How could I not be a happy girl with a plate of nachos like that?? They were loaded and yummy. However I hate when they load up nachos with too much stuff that they get soggy and really don’t have a crunch. But on the other hand, I don’t want naked nachos. catch 22 I guess?Sadly I couldn’t finish them but with some beer and a nap after wards I could’ve!

I’m actually going to miss my team (excluding one person) when I leave, sigh. And wtf is up with my arm? I feel Carrie from “King of Queens” in that one episode where Deacon and Kelly get a portrait of Doug and Carrie painted and she has a monster arm and one puny arm.


I really need to invest in a good foundation. I shouldn’t be this shiny. But I am Italian and cursed with greasy skin so I guess it’s in my genes. Ulta is on my trip list!

Last night, I seriously did nothing. It was rainy and gross outside, which I love, so when I got home I changed into my comfy clothes. And once I change into comfy clothes, there’s no turning back for me. 99% chance I won’t get back into normal clothes and go out. Even though I was in comfy clothes, I ventured out to Chick Fil A to redeem a free combo meal coupon that’s been sitting in my wallet.

Oh Chick Fil A, you never fail me. And whenever I ask for something your employees always say “My pleasure” in a sincere way and you have flowers at your tables. I love you Chick Fil A.

I would love to say I had a really exciting Wednesday night but it consisted of me, Lincoln, the ABC Wednesday night line up and the couch. It was bliss. Very seldom do I unplug and just be but it was a nice change of pace. Lincoln got a belly rub for a full four hours so I think he was a happy camper as well.

And ok, it may consisted of a Cookies N Cream sundae as well

Maybe not the smartest idea at 10P but 100% worth it. And wtf is up with the tv this fall? I am loving every single show I watch, which is not a good thing. I really don’t need to be sitting at home tuning in each night but that’s what’s going on.

Since it was quarter end, we had lunch catered to us. We were supposed to have Carabba’s but our order somehow got “lost” (how an order for 60+ people gets “lost” beats me) so they ordered Jason’s Deli last-minute and it was a success. We all got to choose a sandwich with a pickle, chips, drink and dessert

Naturally, I chose a brownie and it was delectable

Mmmmm…..mmmmmm.mmmm….meaty!

After being at work for 11 hours, I needed one two of these bad boys

And a carbolicious meal

And yeah……that’s all I got. Life is pretty boring at this point and need to mix it up a bit. Any suggestions?
