Sumbitch, here we go again. The holiday season's upon us. Shopping's done, and I don't have to rush to Rite-Aid the day of to buy anyone a forgotten gift, and no giving someone a $10 book who got me a $200 piece of electronics. Wait, am I an adult now? Fuck. I guess I really am. Life, you're a son of a bitch for sneaking up on me when I was just trying to improve my station.
2006 was a year for self-improvement, that much is for sure. Well, self-improvement and self-indulgence, but what can I say? My investment life kicked major ass this year. In the grand scheme of things I'm a resolute greenhorn, I know jack shit and I'm still sticking to my relatively ignorant guns, all the while besting the average. I'm going to pay dearly for it in April, but who's to argue the price of success? I took a stab at it, it's a bottle of the good bubbly for my broker, which sure did take it's sweet time getting there.
I grew a lot as a husband too I think, and know I've got a lot more work to do there as well. As a son, as a man, as an employee. Got ignored by my dream employer, but I think this whole thing doesn't work unless you headhunt the headhunter any more. Finally got some kind of reward for my excess at work, it's been two years since I saw real appreciation from my company. Speaking thereof, I've been off since Monday, had extra vacation that I can't roll over. Might as well waste it as best I can. Video games, mmm... I want to hold on to something childish for just a little longer, please.
