This picture cracks me up. I don't know where it came from but it sure looks like a lol to me.

I've been a business student for a long time now. Particularly in finance. I wouldn't say I'm an expert, but I would like to think that I'm relatively educated. Here is what I think:

  • You would be amazed by the difference in discussion between the media and my current finance class, which includes people who currently work in the banking industry.
  • It's going to get worse before it gets better. Sorry.
  • It's not the end of the world, or the end of the American economy as we know it. (Sorry again!)
  • A "bailout" is a really, really bad idea. OK, that might be just my opinion - I'm a laissez-faire, pro-deregulation kind of person. Only because it's the better alternative. Have you ever worked under Sarbanes-Oxley regulations??

Things have been totally insane in my household the past couple of weeks. And are sure to be busy in the upcoming month as well.

We've gone from dream house to no house in just one evening. So much for my dreams of no more walking to the other end of the block to my car & having to wipe the windows in the morning ... a real kitchen with a full size refrigerator and room for a stand mixer ... or space to put anything for that matter ... a dining room and patio for having friends over ... non-communal washer and dryer ...

I know, I'm so demanding.

I looked at the bottom of the perfume I've been wearing lately. How bad can life be when you spray yourself with pure joy every day?

Today we stopped at the Target that could be our new neighborhood store. We had a little time so we perused the Halloween section, and who was there looking back at us?

Apparently, Domo-kun is Target's Halloween mascot. He's on displays, signs, toys, candy, everywhere!!!! We left with Domo-kun in a pumpkin costume. No, I really couldn't live without it. And no, he did not come house shopping with us (although he did an extensive amount of dancing on the way to our agent's office and on the way home).

Just in case, for your entertainment:
