Dark & Stormy

Okay, so yesterday when I was complaining about my neighbor's dog, Bluedog wrote in and told me to drink a Dark & Stormy and that I'd forget about the dog.

Well I'm on my third Dark & Stormy and that fucking mutt is still out there, barking like a fucking seal. I'm gonna kill it with my bare hands and a log. Ultimate Warrior style...

As for the Dark & Stormy, it's a good drink, but a little sweet for my taste. I mean, that hasn't stopped me from having a few. Still, in the summer, I suggest some Pernod with seltzer.

I should have taken today off. The day started at 6:15 when my neighbor decided it was a good idea to start powerwashing his house... powerwashers aren't quiet... And it basically ended with Maria asking John fucking Travolta if... and this is a direct quote, he's "feeling the impact of the financial slowdown."

HAHAHAHAH! He could hardly suppress his laughter. Thank you, once again Maria Bartiromo, for being a beacon of light in the darkness that is financial journalism.

Today was a dicey day to trade. Even the guys from Mississippi were saying it was slow... always a disturbing sign. Some guys in my office made really good money, with the top dog comfortably over 5gs. But half the guys in the office were in the red too, so it wasn't exactly easy. On most days when it's good to trade, 80% of the office is green. I've done studies.

Anyway, as you might imagine, I was disappointed with my own performance. I hate red Fridays. At least the "pirate hooker" Sanglucci made back his losses from yesterday. Well done, ya hooker.

Tonight I will not have a daily post up, as I have a dinner and ice cream date with a certain 3 year old. Judy is going to a dance performance. I hate dance.

Racism Friday!

Since the NYPD was acquitted for shooting some innocent dude 50 times or so, racial tensions will be running high in the city for some time. I thought I'd fan the flames a bit with this gem from the british show, "Balls of Steel."

Having a hard time getting started today... so how about a song? Play it loud.

UPDATE: Okay, if you want to do some good reading, go check out MWF's racy "history" posts over at The Trading Fraternity. These are nothing like my, PG rated, history posts. He's got crime, sex with fat chicks, lying, cheating... in other words, lots of fun.
