get surreal

how surreal it was to come home from work to find this in my front yard.
i mean, i knew it was coming, but this makes it so. . .

. . .real, you know?

it's my first house, for crying out loud, and it's for sale. now our lives are topsy-turvy--we have to be ready to leave on 15-minutes' notice so the house can be shown, which means the house has to be damn spotless all the time!


kinda hits you where you live. bad pun, i know, but it works.

wish us happy bidding wars and offers over market value, willya?

investment tips for the average bud

retirement planning for 2008

if you had purchased $1,000.00 of nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00.

with enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00.

with worldcom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.

if you had purchased $1,000 of delta airlines stock you would have $49.00 left.

but, if you purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling refund, you would have $214.00.

based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.

it's called the 401-keg plan.

thanks to sbates for sharing
his advice on drinking for profit.
this plan is not recommended
for women who are pregnant
or for persons who have a
family history of alcolohism
or a tendency to become alcoholic.
seek the advice of a professional
investment counselor
or a physician
to learn whether the 401-keg plan
is right for you.
