Philip Glass, "In The Upper Room"

Judy, who is a dancer, showed me this the other night. Unbelievable, really.

The RO Report, "Weeded" Edition

Some time ago I had a summer job as a waiter. Everyone on the waitstaff was always high. This guy Gary was the main supplier as well as the head waiter. Whenever people were super busy they said they were "weeded" or "in the weeds" and I always thought it had to do with their smoking habits. However, I was wrong.

As it turned out, to be "in the weeds" or "weeded" meant that you were so far afield that the weeds had crept above your head. You were lost out there in the field, in the weeds, and you couldn't see your way out.

Anyway, let's get to the numbers. The RO had a nice day. Out of 31 traders today, 23 were gross positive or 74%. 9 traders made over $1,000 gross and 2 traders lost over $1,000 gross. I was #29 of 32, a Manservant.

"Lucky Pierre" - Trader D, $12,938 on 173k shares traded.

2. Trader B, $9,241 on 301k shares traded.
3. Trader Z, $3,455 on 31,200 shares traded.
4. Trader C, $2,695 on 56,414 shares traded.
5. Trader F, $2,363 on 31,800 shares traded.

"Chambermaid" - Trader N, -$3,894 on 103k shares traded.

2. Trader L, -$1,448 on 18,000 shares traded.
3. Trader S, -$650 on 10,600 shares traded.
4. Trader 6*, -$217 on 2,400 shares traded.
5. Trader H*, -$216 on 49,800 shares traded.

"Bag It" Documentary

Long time readers know I hate plastic even more than I hate CNBC. Check this great documentary about plastic shopping bags. Now if only they'd ban styrofoam...
