Fast

There are times when you just can’t wait. When you find the perfect house on realtor.com and need to have financing before you go see it because there are other people interested in it. Or when you need to consolidate your loans before any more penalties pile up. Or when you finally find that specific red SS camaro available with T tops at a dealer and they don’t have a good rate for financing. All in all you just can’t wait. I think this site FastLoanOffers http://www.fastloanoffers.com/ might be of great help. They have a wealth of information about  all different kinds of loans and can help you get approved online quickly. The nice thing is its available even if you have bad credit. Check it out, I think it could be a helpful site. (but always be careful when giving personal financial information over the internet, you need to really make sure you know who you’re dealing with to avoid identity theft)

Harold & Kumar

I discovered that they are adding another White Castle to the mall in the area where I live last week. I wonder did the movie “Harold & Kumar go to White Castle” have any affect on that? The last time I ate White Castle was when I worked for a (boiler room type) sales department and they wanted cheap cheap food to eat at lunch work meetings. We would order sliders by the hundreds and they would have slider eating contest complete with bets on who would eat the most. Then most people hurled it right back up in the bathroom or had it exit the other way most the afternoon.

White castle seems to be synonamous with cheap death food now a days, but it wasn’t always that way. My parents remember a time in the 50s and 60s when it was a more respectable brand and had better quality food. I think this was actually their choice to go after the low end market and this has happened as a result.

Office Space

I went to a tech group dinner the other night expecting to see people from large organizations in the area and instead saw a lot of startup companies and people starting their own businesses and sites. This was suprising to see. It isn’t easy trying to work from home (despite what the ads say) and sooner or later you have to graduate to a professional workspace. The big hurdle here is the cost. You usually have to lease a really large space by the year. This costs thousands of dollars, whether your company is profitable or not.

One solution is a new site called Offices2Share.  They are a solution that offers smaller spaces that you can sublet or rent month to month rather than for a long period of time. The bonus is also that most already include internet & phone lines and some even a front desk and secretary service. That is way better than working in your garage or basement. It all seems pretty affordable too. A 200 sq foot space in Oak Brook, IL is listed for $ 400.00 per month. That’s enough space for a few workers, and more profitable than a large lease.

I’ve always wanted to start my own business but lacked the space to do it. I will keep this site in mind next time I am looking or know of someone who needs ofice space. Check out Offices2Share online today.

Office Party

Something seems to be in the water here at work, we have 4 women in our department that are pregnant. a We just had a party-lunch with baby games to celebrate all this. I ahve to say we have the most innapropriate games for work at this party. At least there was cake though…
