WTF!!?

Apparently Manckeck refuses to acknowledge my bank card…

I tried the epassporte, no chance there either. *sigh*

Fine, I'll keep my money then.

Later…

Rich,

As I rather regularly check out the NorCalAidsChallenge website I came accross a message you posted in your Yahoo! discussion group in which you thanked people for having expressed concerns following the Hurricane Kristina that hit Missippi and, among many, members of your family. I'm sorry they lost belongings, I'm glad it did not go further than a material matter.
Please accept my deepest though belated sympathy.

Pasca

Honesty remains the best policy.

Wondering

I should learn to be simpler.

I found out the NorCal Aids Challenge has a group on Yahoo™. Of course Rich is in it and apparently does post a lot. His last post, dated from the 9th, is about him thanking everyone for messages of concern regarding members of Rich's family in the area that was hit by hurricane Katrina.

Question is: should I send him an e-mail too? Now that I know (he told me about his family when we met last June, I honestly didn't remember where they all lived), no matter how I found out, isn't it rude of me to not say anything? But if I do, even though I would not disclose the source, wouldn't that be a message saying a lot more than my concern? Like how frustrated I am for not getting any more news from him / like how bad I feel for not knowing therefore not being able to offer help or at least comfort / like I'm seriously questionning his friendship…

I don't know.

I'm leaning toward sending an e-mail though.

obsession

In the not so distant future, I will be less like the guy I currently am. I have this image in my head of what I want to be and I will do whatever I have to within reason, to safely get there.

Definition of obsession : Tom about his appearance and … me about BDJ for not showing any pic of him since last year…

Learning a lesson the hard way

I sold and bought back same amount of stocks; typical day trading. Problems is: the type of order I utilized was new to me* and … I sold at a price I was hoping to buy and vice versa.

I now know what to avoid doing.

* Note for self: best limit means that, for a buying order, the lowest price at which someone sells determines the limit at which the stock is bought until completion. In case of a buying order, it works the other way around.

Best limit does not equal best price

Image analysis

There is more to this image than the plain message it conveys.

  • The girl, the fact she's blonde and that she feels the need to show her belly.
  • The poster, the blue-white-red background (our colours too in case she'd ignore the fact), the “Hey France bla-bla-bla” in red along with “YOU“. Incidently the other poster in the back bearing the word “Communism” definitely erases any doubt the viewers may have had: we're desperately commies. As a matter of fact I googled Uncle Sam needs you: in most cases YOU is written in red, too…
  • A pilot from WW2 in the center of the poster. Obviously, along with the sentence right underneath “WE'LL protect civilization“, one understands the parallel between WW2 and what is happening in Iraq.

Well, sorry young lady but I don't. She should be ashamed to use the image of someone, in age probably her grand-father, who came to rescue us (the 'civilized' then) 60 years ago. She should be ashamed as well as learn her history in order to convey a better message.

Besides, most people here would not understand “Shut the hell up” so what is her audience?
