On my final day of the workweek yesterday I was feeling great. My client presentation in Lake City went off perfectly and I was able to even talk to the owner a little bit about how he started and operated his business, which is very similar conceptually to my digital gauges website. After work, I went to Imo Sushi with Nick and Brian where we had a good conversation and a vigorous debate on religion.… read more “Energy Drink Foolishness”
Plato and a couple of friends and I are going to watch Robert LePage’s BlueBeard’s Castle and Erwartung this evening as presented by the Seattle Opera at McCaw Hall in Seattle Center. Afterwards, we probably will be headed to a hippy party to watch a far less classy funk band lol.
I am sick and tired of hearing the same generic stupidity repeated over and over again about the markets.
- “Housing prices will always go up”
- “The stock market will always go up in the long run.”
- “Houses are the best investment you can have”
- “Bonds/CDs are the safest investments”
All of these statements are not bad ideas, however they are NOT absolute principles.‚ Too many people who are supposed to be in an advisory position (financial advisors, brokers, reporters, U.S.… read more “Generic Idiocy in Markets”
Beth was kind enough to send me the funny Mr. Novocaine video featuring the fingers below:
For the last week I have been unable to fall asleep for over an hour or more and I would wake up at around 6 am, unable to sleep further.‚ However last night I was able to sleep like a 215 pound baby.‚ An unhealthy part of my life was forcibly cut out yesterday and now I feel great this morning.‚ I had a very awkward date last night with a girl who turned out to have little real experience with the opposite sex… cracked me up because the last three girls I dated have been like jaded old men.‚ Anyways, off to do a client presentation in Lake City now, then meeting with Nick & Brian for happy hour at 5:30 at Imo Sushi if anyone wants to join us!
I am extraordinarily talented at many things in life, from writing great blog posts to drawing purple dragons to creeping people out.‚ One area that I have been sadly lacking experience in though is in the musical realm.‚ My dad once tried to get me to play the trumpet in fifth grade, but I never learned to make anything other than a dying screech.‚ In junior high, I took a required choir class and hated singing Christian songs so much I never sang again.‚ However, I have begun to regret being unable to play an instrument as well as my white man dancing skills.‚ So I have decided to learn how to play the guitar.‚ Plato was kind enough to lend me his father’s guitar to learn on.… read more “Rock Star Joel”
Previously, I wrote a post about Randy Constan aka Peter Pan Man and announced that he was kind enough to allow me to interview him for my website.‚ Below is the interview:
Joel: What do you do on a daily basis? Are you employed or do you participate in other activities?
Randy Constan (Peter Pan Man): I’ve always been in high tech.… read more “Interview of Peter Pan Man (Randy Constan)”
I owe my readers a big apology.‚ Recently, I wrote a blog post on how I thought “People Are Fading“.‚ Rarely have I been so sorely mistaken in one of my theories.‚ The very first line “Relationships with people have been one of the primary sources of joy in my life” was absolutely true.‚ Most of the rest of the post is garbage.… read more “Sorely Mistaken”
