Just had a great conversation with our new Tech guru Nelson (I’m, without shame, patting myself on the back for hiring this firm) about investing because apparently his stock in Apple just keeps going up. I know. Shocking. So, I’m thinking about getting into this investing game. I know my Pops has done some of this kind of thing and so I think a real conversation is in order on the subject. I know what Pops will sayL “Go ahead and start doing some research.” We didn’t get told the answers in my house. You had to figure that sh*t out for yourself. And so I’m thinking energy sector, tech sector, defense contractors…hmm…what with all the talk of colonizing outer space there’s probably some reason to look at the aerospace industry to see what kind of companies work in that sector. And so the newest quest for information begins.
Right, moving on, hooray for Corey happy hours! I have missed thee..
Also, hooray for Saturday poker games and birthday parties! I think it’s time I started taking pictures again..
Also, I had this whole post on an ex-boyfriend and how he used to laughingly (and bitterly) recite his belief that women were essentially all harpies who would do anything to “get that man!” and how I still think he overdoes it but that there is some evidence to suggest that some young women today are taught that destroying competition is necessary to get what they seek in this regard and that I’m pretty sure fucking up other women is actually putting the focus in the wrong place when it should be on developing the relationship with the man in question and how I find it delicious when these same women are successful in “getting that man!” only to discover they’ve fought long and hard and done terrible things to win a cheap plastic trophy that breaks the first time you drop it. But that would just lead to a rambling run-on sentence so I’ll refrain. Also, feel free to mix and match gender pronoun and descriptors up there cause it works both ways.
And, on a related note, just a reminder…
