Life is too short to be worried about money

Those of you who read my last post know I celebrate my losses. And those who know me know that all my celebrations include decent amounts of alcohol. Who am I kiddin here?? Make that decent - large. So, that's where I am coming from, so please excuse my ramblings.

But this is my blog and I am going to write what I feel. So, I do not apologize for my ramblings. For those who are disappointed about the losses today....who cares?? Life is too short and unpredictable to be worried about money all the time. If you are playing the stock market with money you cant afford to lose.....sorry Sir, but you are an idiot and I have absolutely no sympathy for you. For those who are smart enough to play with money they can lose and lost a decent bit today...grow up!! If you are lucky, you are with people who love and care about you. Not everybody is as lucky as you! Don't ask me how I know. Some of us are blessed to be loved so much and yet cant be with people who love them. Again, dont ask me how I know. For those who are sleeping next to your loved ones tonight, dont forget to tell them how much you love them and how empty your life would be without them. If you have kids, can any profits take the place of the smile of your kids? Spend time with them this long weekend and forget about your positions. You dont know how lucky you are to be surrounded by the people you love and who love you in return. You better damn well appreciate it!!

I am gonna label this post "introduction" because if a wasted man tells no lies, then this post is about me. I am going to go fix myself another drink. And you, better love and cherish your loved ones and the time you spend with them!
