I was anticipating some kind of date like happening tonight but that fell through and a totally fun GIRL HANG OUT happened1 instead! 2 new girl friends and I went downtown and drank and threw ice at each other and then ate tacos!  AWESOME

ring a bell and call me fido 'cause goddamn I could go for some tacos right now. Drinks and 2 new girlfriends optional. Ice-throwing not recommended (sounds like a fun night Very Happy)

I've been hosting team trivia at a local pub twice a month for a couple months now, and it's getting a better and better turnout each time. I always get a lot of compliments afterwards, and last night I got a $20 bump in my pay! Which means I'm making an extra hundo a month off this shit!

you mean you get paid for that? BADDASS!

That is indeed awesome! Did you know that Drew from Cbus does several trivia nights a week? You guys should, like, trade notes.

I have talked to him about it a couple of times, actually. The style of the ones he does is quite a bit different from mine, but I wouldn't mind talking shop with him a little bit more at some point. Sounds like it's going pretty well for him too!

No kidding! I was expecting to do it for free, and I wouldn't have even minded! But they paid me, and now they've started paying me even more!

I got an inflatable, remote-controlled shark in the mail from a friend in California last night. No idea that she was sending it. I got home and was coincidentally texting with her and was like hold up I did not order a package from ThinkGeek and she asked "is there a note with it?" and I was like "...oh."

I did not know that my life was incomplete without this, but NOW MY LIFE IS COMPLETE. EVERYBODY COME OVER AND PLAY WITH MY SHARK.

Yes! Write me a letter and send it BY SHARK.

Does it have land-shark mode? Or will I need to wait at the beach?

I'm not a regular reader of the Wall Street Journal, but I bought a copy over Thanksgiving weekend.

After my wife & children, if there's anything I'm thankful for this season, it's that the Occupy movement, in just two months, has so profoundly changed our thinking about economic justice that Jason Zweig, who writes "The Intelligent Investor" column for the WSJ, is now preaching to his readers about the imminent wrath of Jehovah.

~

From "Why Banks Should Be Grateful for Occupy Wall Street"
By JASON ZWEIG
Nov 26-27, 2011

...

Wall Street hasn't yet had to answer to a higher authority. In 1940, the investing writer Fred Schwed recalled the eve of the Crash of 1929:

"There was a luxurious club car which ran each weekday morning into the Pennsylvania Station. When the train stopped, the assorted millionaires who had been playing bridge, reading the paper, and comparing their fortunes, filed out of the front end of the car... Those who needed a nickel in change for the subway ride downtown took one [from a bowl near the door]. They were not expected to put anything back in exchange; this was not money. It was only 5 cents [roughly 65 cents in 2011 dollars].

"There have been many explanations of the sudden debacle of October, 1929. The explanation I prefer is that Jehovah, a wrathful god, happened to chance in October on that bowl. In sudden understandable annoyance, Jehovah kicked over the financial structure of the United States, and the bowl of free nickels disappeared forever."

Mr. Schwed, who died in 1966, might be shocked to realize that the bowl didn't disappear forever after all. Government bailouts in the latest financial crisis distributed billions of free nickels to failing banks - staving off collapse and enabling the banks to speculate anew with cheap money.

Perhaps, as was true after the Crash of 1929, we will only know that this long bear market is over when, at long last, it consumes the people who perpetrated it. Above all, Wall Street should be grateful that Jehovah hasn't kicked over this bowl of nickels, too - at least, not yet.

That shark, by the way, is the 8th best selling toy at Amazon right now.

L brought it to my attention a couple weeks ago as a possible xmas gift idea for Finn. I am undecided.

The shark is kind of a bear to put together (I have never seen Evan cry and he almost cried when he was helping me do it) but there's an instructional video online and the result is TOTALLY WORTH IT.
the same company does inflatable clownfish, but fuck a clownfish.
