The Weekend Looms

I have a nightmarish weekend ahead of me. Mainly because I will be forced to drive, twice, on what is perhaps the worst road in the United States.

Coincidence or not, the road leads to the region of the world in which "the Fly" abodes. It is littered with Dunkin Donuts and other "big box" retailers. It's also filled with "gypsy cabs" and the dreaded "female driver in large white SUV."

If I survive the ordeal, I will write a post about it.

The good news is that on the other side of the road, is my brother in law, who is a formidable Risk opponent. I love the game of Risk. Mostly because it allows me to proclaim my dominance over other people, in a friendly way.

Anyway, trade was wild early for me, as I played a retracement in CPHD.

Before I made money, I lost a lot. Clearly, not an HCPG type trade. Given the volume in the market and the ridiculous money being made by my office mates, I have decided to suspend my laser-like allegiance to the HCPG method. I'm still making trades according to it, but I've opened up my market strategy a bit, to take advantage of the volatility.

Anyway, I'm green again. I've had a good streak, and think I deserve a half day. So I'm outta here.

Enjoy your weekend.

Hey, I love Risk too, who knew we had soooo much in common.

Execute child rapists and play Risk. Feeling all warm and fuzzy! :)

Now, go buy a Hummer so all those ladies in white SUVs are less of a threat to you and yours.

Have a good weekend!

DT - you a Diplomacy player?

Very funny, Dogwood. Instead of buying a Hummer, I'll stick to my zippy little car so I can avoid the big 'uns out there.


Diplomacy doesn't suit me... c'mon, you read the blog!

I have heard it's a great game though. Someone in the family has a copy of it...

Hey Dino, if you like game Risk than check out It's simplified risk with 6 opponents played in real time. One play goes for 5-10 minutes. Give it a try. Warning, highly addictive!!
