I gave a bum a $5 bill in Monopoly money today.

That bum was probably Jesus in disguise. :(

Seriously, I am almost afraid to say this, but I feel much more confident about keeping my job than I did in October. The managers for my group have been retained, and it looks like we will be continuing to do the same job, but now for all of Wells Fargo. Basically for my group, instead of Wells coming in and taking us over, we are taking them over. The only issue remaining is how many total positions will be kept.

So now that I am more confident, I feel comfortable spending more money. We have already scheduled a trip to New Orleans in April and will be taking a decent vacation in August, although we don't know where yet.

Good news about your job!

Good news about your job!

Thanks, although I hope I am not jumping the gun. Nothing official has been announced yet, but its certainly looking better than it was in October.

I hope so, cause if there isn't Monopoly in heaven, I don't wanna go.

I really only care about my immediate family...Might sound selfish, but at the end of the day, they're all that matter to me, and matter little to anyone else.

And, let's face it, we're not far from anarchy as it is...Just witness what it gets like when there is a gas shortage, or if a natural disaster screws the system up...It becomes every man for himself.

We are nowhere near anarchy. Somalia is Anarchy, we just have a few disgruntled types.

I'm having a wedding so I'd say that throws a good chunk of change into the economy...And the honeymoon in Hawaii should do some good as well. I'm in the banking industry but it looks like I'll make it through this if things don't get really bad. I'm trying to do my part to continue spending as I normally would despite the sometimes overwhelming fear of needing to save every penny "just in case' trying to take over. That's not to say that I'm not attempting to at least squirrel away a little bit more than before these days. :piggy:

Yesterday I won an auction for a sweet autographed Panthers football, and all the money went to my g/f's church and their projects. Not bad for a Jesus bashing scumbag.

my g/f's church and their projects.

Doesn't seem like that's contributing to the greater good especially coming from someone who seems to hold churches in the same contempt that I, myself, do. But way to go! Hope she "paid" you back :P

Ah, they build stuff for poor people or something. Yeah, overall it's not really something I am really in agreement with because of the strings attached...but it is a killer signed ball
