Curse You, Laurence Simon!

Oh, the fickle fortunes of finance.

One minute, I’ve rocketed to the top of the Blogshares Top Players List (from getting a free 1000 shares of my own stock). I’m buying new tiaras for the Princess and partying like it’s 1999.

The next, some schmuck launches a sell-off and my stock price plummets from $11.68 to $1.30! I’m ruined. I can’t even afford bullets for the gun.

I wonder if it’s too late to get back that “I Quit” e-mail I sent to my boss…

  2. Well, at least you don’t have to worry about running out of toilet paper.

    Hey, you’re not the only one. My stock PLUMMETED from $7-something a share to .67. Sixty seven freakin’ cents! I’m ruined!

    Actually, I was just reading the manual. It automatically cuts the price when the P/E ratio gets to 7.5. I’ll bet the system did a market correction on “overpriced junk”. Gee, that makes me feel better…

    One of two things is going on here….
    Either A: someone is using my likeness without permission, or
    B: you’ve gone and got another Schmuck. i guess I’m just yesterday’s news… not needed, nor wanted anymore… I knew I shouldn’t have blasphemed and backed out of the Tolkien-ball…
    Another Schmuck? Who’da thunk it?

    I bought a bunch of you earlier, when you were expensive. I should have waited for the firesale. Geesh! 😉

    I plummeted myself, as I documented on my site. Weird.

    And now I’ve completely disappeared as a blog to trade on. I’ve posted on their boards.
