Money

We are living it!


Yesterday I grabbed the mail and do you know what was waiting for me? Do you remember that share of stock in Tiffany & Co. I got Welsh Girl for our anniversary? Well, we got a dividend check! Our capital has officially generated seventeen cents this quarter! Though, of course, with withholding taken out our check was only for twelve cents. This is totally going to complicate our taxes! Either way, though, we are capitalists now! Time to kick back and let the profits flow in!

This post brought to you you by the words "surprise" and "sarcasm" and by the number "Whaaaaa?"

most quarters I get a dividend of nearly $25, and it usually comes when we're short of money.


And here I thought the American Dream was .... by me0w (4.00 / 1) #2 Tue Jul 14, 2009 at 11:54:33 AM EST
getting a 1967 Cadillac El Dorado convertible, hot pink with whaleskin hub caps and all leather cow interior and big brown baby seal eyes for headlights, yeah!

Popular culture has lied to me yet again!

I think that is the Canadian Dream by me0w (2.00 / 0) #4 Tue Jul 14, 2009 at 05:32:44 PM EST
It is certainly my dream. And I speak on behalf of all Canadians.

Driving fast on drugs while getting your wing-wang squeezed and not spilling your drink...

A man's reach must exceed his grasp or what's a heaven for?

He sails from world to world in a flying tomb, serving gods who eat hope.

It should not be in your grasp but in someone else's.

How much oppression can one create for 12 cents?
