Lunchtime w00t...?

Little updates: Monday, roof was stripped. Tuesday, permit garnered and material delivered. Wednesday, facia boards replaced. Thursday and maybe Friday, roof installed. Friday or Saturday, Carl delves deeper into the debt stupor that the house has forced him into by paying the roofers.

Jen goes back to work tomorrow, so I will be working from home the next day or two while the roof gets replaced. So today, I went downstairs to buy my February monthly Metrolink pass. Came back up and found out that a meeting on our floor had adjourned and there were lunch goodies left over! w00t!!! Snagged me two tuna fish sandwich halfs, a bag of Lay's Baked Potato Chips Crisps, and two cold waters. Who needs frozen lunchs or, worse, fast food when there are meetings? *snicker*

*^*^*~^*^*

I've been feeling a bit snarky lately, and I don't know why. Last weekend, Jen and I went to her parents house to see a play ("Sylvia" by A. R. Gurney) and have dinner. Throughout the whole dinner, I barely said a word. Don't know why, but I hadn't. I've caught myself barking at Jen this week, and have had a general blah-ness towards most things. *shrug*

*^*^*~^*^*

I've just started to learn about shorting things, and I've been making a killing, relatively speaking. My fist foray was Chinese Coffee (CCOFE), which was going to delist. Did a max short at $0.09, making H$4,545 when it delisted. Hmmm... Now I've got The Third Wheel (TWEEL) on a short, which has been languishing for a while, and suddenly plunging to the ground for no reason. If it delists, I should get about H$67,000 for it. Also being shorted is The Last Minute (LSMIN), which removed themselves from the movie distribution schedule. I'm ridin' 'em all to the bottom of the charts, which in some sadistic way, is very fufilling.

*^*^*~^*^*

As I think I mentioned before, I've recently gotten a Compaq iPAQ 3850 from work. While looking for some utilities, I came across Monopoly for Pocket PC. Wow. I actually paid for this bad boy, because I wasnted more than the 10 games the demo gives you. If you like Monopoly and have a Pocket PC, get this now!

Just found out that The Third Wheel is going straight to cable in Asia-Pacific, based on this. Looks like it will probably do the same domestically, which means a delist is coming soon. Go me!

If I ever get my HP (fingers crossed) I'll make sure to look into Monopoly :)

Dude, I played HSX for like two and a half years. Basically retired when I hit H$1 billion, but I think the port is still in the top 100.

*blink* *blink* H$1 Billion?!?! Now I feel pretty sad and silly for being excited when hitting H$4 million earlier this week. =)

Re:
Hehe, the first few million is the hardest. $100 million took me a year. After two years I was over $500 million.

Yeah, that's the way I feel about real money too. *sigh*
