Nah he didn't say anything about you. I tried to talk him down on the alternator but he wouldn't go lower than $50. Oh well, it's a 140amp, so it's worth that as a core, even if it's shot.

If you use the term "coffee maker" in the loosest possible way then yes! It's a POS Wal-Mart job. Considering bringing in the Keurig, since I never use it at home.
My cube mate and decided it was unacceptable using other people's dirty foul coffee makers.

Nice Ed!!! I approve

I don't approve of anything more than a Walmart coffee maker in a cube. A coworker in Columbus makes himself a cappuccino twice daily. I can't think of many things that are more distracting.

Wow. That would be distracting. I do think I want to move up to a timed one, I want the coffee ready when I get there at 630. Well around 630 anyway...

If anybody here has a .edu email address, and doesn't have Amazon Prime, do yourself and me a favor by signing up. The membership is free and you get free 2-day shipping on Amazon items for 6months. Just make sure it's in your setting to NOT renew after the 6months (unless you want to start paying for it). I get $10 for every referral, so sign up with the link below if you're gonna do it.

(sorry for spamming, but I need monies for books )

Plus Prime is totally worth it anyway. For anything. even got brake pads for the Trailblazer on there. Its amazing how much I saved on my books for school on Amazon. I already have it or I would CJ.

Oh I miss those days. I bought office for around ~$15. My gf got the adobe design suite for some equally stupid-low price. I need to go back to campus and trade a freshman some beer for software.
