In order to try and Upstage the Obama speach, decides to nominate the female version of Bush..... Gun toting Cowboy Alaska gov.... Palin

How about that obama

Wow! if America can get past it's ADD, he will Tear it up.

I didn't want to blog about this.

Hmmm..... I have the insomnia......

Hey I guess I tried.

Oh.... My girl Ivonovich Got beat at the Open.... in the second round? Will she be a One hit wonder? the Pressure of being number one has gotten to her..... Will she suffer the Roddicks and the Sharapova... "Once was, and we keep hoping she will be"

And worse, the Unapealing(yes I'm shallow) nature of the Female versions of Ivan Drago.... One of them may go on an Epic Open Streak and I'll have to spend the next 5 years staring at, Safina or Kuznetsova.

Holy Crap... I missed it today, Cornet Defeated Mattek, straight sets...... she is cute to watch, but needs some Meat on those bones.

And After having a child Lindsey is back.... Which is awesome.... her knee won't hold up, and even if she makes it much further, she should lay up and let that leg rest.... I want to see her comeback next year.

Feeder...... You know, I want to see him get a taste for blood again..... I'm fearful he will have to retire, then come back as an old man in a year or 4.

I give roddick 50/50 to get past gulbis tomorrow. and Lindsy plays Bartoli.... that won't go well.... both of those are the night matches tomorrow.

.... So, I was hoping it would get cooler, but when I'm done with "Work" it's still hot... I have a million things to do in the garden. Not to mention the impending 5 hour "Salsa" sessions.... Making salsa takes about 2 hours of chopping, and blanching, followed by 4 hours of "Simmer", then another hour of canning.

But... it's getting harder and harder to exercise, I can tell I'm turning into one of those "Pear" people, with that strange bell shape from sitting all day.

In the morning it's just too hard.

I did watch the men and woman's marathon at the Olympics.... There is something I'll never manage.... There was a time when I could have pulled off 10, and that wasn't completely out of reach... but... without regular Leg pounding... That is some tough stuff.... and I never realized that Runners don't start all "Emaciated, and Gaunt" That happens during the Race.... That just can't be healthy...

Well, that is a show....

Oh and Happy Birthday Art.

quail in the garden

Back to the regular Scheduald...

... Banality.

So.... I can't sleep.

Ok, Feldman the question is, did he go out there or not... and not to ruin the suspense... on the Season finally... of course he did (to be continued next season.... am I really going to have to wait a year?). Here is the thing, They aren't actually very good friends. Sometimes in life we find people who we consider 'friends' and they are actually acquaintances. Many times we find that Acquaintances that we are forced to interact with every day at say 'work'(like the 2 corrys). Well those acquaintances become friends by default, and the social pressure of "oh 2 corry's! how cute!". What I'm saying is that They aren't very good friends, I always measure this by the number of very close personal discussions you have with a friend. How much one talks about the more Personal things, like aspirations, goals... Life's daily struggles. That is a good way to quantify who a 'good friend' is. They are like old drinking buddies.

That being said, I think fieldman is going to go out and try and connect to Haim's wellness. I think stewing there as the clock ticked by, he realized how Pulling away from 'Someone in distress', isn't the proper way to provide support for either a 'friend', or an addict, or someone who legitimately needs help. BTW Remember that, The people who need the most help are usually the most difficult to give it to.... There is a case in point, but I'll not dwell on it, again.

I've seen Fieldman try and do this a couple times, in couples counseling and some other times, He has reached out, only for haim to "Throw up his Walls" and walk away. If haim can connect, can let himself be vulnerable, it will be Key to his recovery. Why is there a problem? you ask?. It's when he was 'Assaulted', I'm sure since then he has been unable to allow himself to be Vulnerable to another person.... and that Ladies and Gentleman, is the core of his problem.... and now he just Runs away... "fight and Flight response"... He Runs... Juxtaposed with Fieldman, who has decided to Fight, and is on his way to 'try again'.

But, to get back to the original point, fieldman's problem is that it's more an unhealthy dependant-co dependant relationship and doesn't realize, that they aren't very close, and he gets almost nothing for the relationship.... Besides Celebrity exposure for him and his wife.

And Other Baseless supositions... that aparently keep me up at night.

On another note,I got a Nigerian 419.... You realize the engrish is getting better don't you. I read a story about how every 'cyber cafe' in nigeria is filled 24/7 with under 18 kids, spaming out these to every email account they can find.

From Sgt Dave Godwin.

Good Day,

I found your contact particulars in an E-mail address guide that was provided to us here, as I desperately needed an urgent help to do this deal. I am seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of $15m {Fifteen Million U.S Dollars only} to you; as far as I can be assured that my share will be safe in your care until I complete my service here.

SOURCE OF FUND: A lot of money in various currencies were discovered in barrels at a farmhouse near one of saddams old palaces in Tikrit in Iraq during an operation Conquest in Fallujah north of Baghdad, and it was agreed by Staff Sgt. Kenneth Buff and I that some part of this money be shared among both of us before informing anybody about it since both of us saw the money first. This is quite an illegal thing to do, but well tell you what? no compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in this hell hole, of which my brother in-law was killed by a road side bomb last time.

The above figure was given to me as my share, and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of a British Contractor working here, at Southern Basra British fortified green zone, whose office enjoys some immunity, I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot. He does not know the real contents of the package, and believes that it belongs to a British/American medical doctor who died in a raid here in Baghdad, and before giving up, trusted me to hand over the package to his family in United States. I have now found a much secured way of getting the package out of Iraq to security firm in united kingdom, for you to pick it up, and I will discuss this with you when I am sure that you are willing to assist me, and I believe that my money will be well secured in your hand because you have fear of God.

I want you to tell me how much you will take from this money for the assistance you will give me. One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this matter with anybody, should you have reasons to reject this offer, please and please destroy this message as any leakage of this information will be too bad and catastrophe for soldiers here in Iraq. I do not know how long we will remain here, but I hope to have a shift very soon for me to return back to the States. I have been shot and wounded twice and I have survived two terrible suicides bomb attacks just by special grace of God, this and other reasons I will mention later has prompted me to reach out for help, I will honestly want this matter be resolved immediately.

I thank you so much for everything and anticipate that you will be trustworthy and handle this transaction to the best of your ability to benefit both of us. Click on this page below to read more about the money and the bomb blast:

God Bless you and your family.

Yours Sgt. Dave Godwin.

Louder is looking good Too.....And Tyler Hamilton Olympic Gold metalist...... Remind me.....What happened when he went to defend that in Athens?

A bike race, on the streets of downtown..... Very exciting...

What is it with a bike race, that everyone especialy Cat 4 racers, have to give their buddies their version of good race tactics.

"They should have started sprinting at 4 laps to go...."


Who am I?

Ask then answer, Who am I? and what is the point?

I hope it's not upsetting.... but this is for Turbo..... It's contrived, but these are the important times in our lives. How you get up when you get knocked down, is just as important as being able to step up to the challenge.

This and other things you could read in a Fortune cookie!

WOW Big race

Big Race tomorrow......

Super exciting...

Good Luck.... everyone..


I try not to go on to much about markets... Cause if I go on about cyclical secular and seasonal cycles... and Inflation... it would make your eyes water.... it does mine.

I coined a Phrase... Which is that most investors need to take a Costanza Position when investing.... What ever you want to do..... You probably should do the opposite.

Want to buy the top of Yahoo in 2000?
Want to buy Oil stock in the past 3 months?

Problem is... by the time you should look to buy oil investments... you will be too scared to do it.

Emotion rules the day in investment....Things Bottom, Because of the Fear.

Like they say "buy when there is blood in the streets"

The blood has yet to run in Oil, or in Real estate..... But it will.

For the past 6 months, some Oil Wrangler in Nigeria could stub a toe, and oil would go up $2. But the fact that this Russian thing is barely moving the needle in oil... Says something.... Something like OIL IS GOING MUCH LOWER.

At the time I'm typing this oil is down $2.

It's the way markets work..... YOU CANT AFFORD $4.00 oil... People only make $10 an hour pluss benefits.. so spending the first hour of work earning enough money to drive to and from home..... Well.... IT KILLS THE ECONOMY... and with it Oil prices. People will walk, buy bikes, public transport.... etc....


It blows my mind that all the Economists, and Analysts... etc never seem to understand the dynamics of markets. And constantly model things based on Static forces, and not dynamic forces.... Problem is... that makes it much harder to model....

SO... No oil at $200.

More vent.

I spent the week exposed in the sun... I'm still rehydrating. Umn Good thing I remain, Fairly Fit, Or I don't think I would have made it through the week.

I remarked earlier to someone that I need to vent about work, and don't really have anyone to talk to(How fucking sad*Rolls eyes*).

The two constants I struggle with:

Everyone is massively Incompetent. I had to explain to the person I was working for that there are 90 degrees in a quarter circle, and not 100. 2 of the guys I'm working with are getting high during the day, then after they come up with the stupidest ideas.... I want to scream at them "WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU. I KNOW YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING, BUT YOUR HEAD IS SO FAR UP YOUR ASS, YOU ARE EVEN STUPIDER THAN YOUR NORMAL BULLSHIT.". We hit a problem and I came up with 20 solutions for it, every one of them they didn't want to do. I've had problems on a project before, but it's usually that there are no solutions, not that there are 40, and we refuse all of them.

Second one....
Deep down, I know it's how I'm dealing with it that is the core problem. Most of it is internalized. But I just, Many people suggest that I just milk it out, do what I'm told. and watch the shoes drop...... What the hell does it matter to me. I've always been taught to do the best job I can.....

Friday, August 01, 2008

Will a vent count as poetry friday?

I've had a ridiculous week.

Oh... there was some bottom calling in the market..... and some asshole is saying it on tv.

Unfortunately, and yes this person is an asshole.... Assuming a Zero Growth (and non financials, non Oil are growing earnings at 2+%) Fair value is 10600... So if the market gets close to that... People who can do math get excited about the stock market. There is also this thing called the Maximum Pessimism in the market... And when The market starts talking about the great depression, and every bank in the country going bankrupt..... Seems like we hit that one.... and I'm not sure I have seen any breadlines or hobo's, just a lot of fat people eating potatochips. The market could go lower... but it is by no means "Overvalued"...

if you have a 401K, at the 11k level.... Increase your contributions.... Buying the stock market when it is down 25+%, is ... a rare opportunity.... But we could go lower. The return on those contributions.... Well is much higher than they will be if you decide to contribute "Post recovery"

And Yes, we will experience a long period of stagnant growth with, high inflation. Even Kudlow, says we are in a "contraction"/recession.

One other tip.... There is this thing called the non farm payroll, when the 3 month moving average turns negative... or it hits sub 40K for a couple months... Get OUT!

Let me give you another indicator. When I can find a 20 year old, who is willing to do hard labor. The economy is in trouble. But while they are to fucked off to get off their cell phones to "Work"... I'm thinking things are not that bad.
