Being it's 1:00 and the market closes at 1:00 (Pacific time) I took a look at the DOW and decided I didn't really need to look at the DOW anymore. Best to, um, do something different, anything different.
Since my grandparents on my mother's side came here from Iceland I keep an eye open for Iceland news stories and I've been watching the trouble they've been having in this financial crisis. They announced they've been forced to take out a $5.5 billion dollar loan with Russia and my thought was, well, $5.5 billion, you see these numbers thrown about, what does that translate to for each Icelander, adults and kids? Eighteen thousand dollars. Plus a few hundred. My grandparents obviously got out in time. Hope I don't have to think about making it out of here.
Later. A run to Safeway for necessary items (Ms. Emmy was out of cat food), back to watch the news. Probably shouldn't have watched the news. Probably shouldn't have eaten that tuna fish sandwich so fast. Probably better to read Mr. Wallace for the rest of the day and not worry about anything else.
Such as the fact you don't have any pictures in the can for tomorrow?
