Beautiful Day


Tues, Jun 1, 2010
CL 15min
CL 5min



It's been a lovely day. Memo on my transfer was officially out yesterday, and I moved to my new office today.

I had lunch (yes, I ate) alone at coffee bean - well, I wasn't actually alone since I brought my book along...After lunch, I took my coffee out to sit at the designated cancer zone and had my nicotine fix while I read and drank coffee. I was in my usual ultra long black skirt with an ultra black halter top, and my black boot (I can only sit cross-legged) was totally getting in the way of super annoying passersby who got too close. Everyone turned to stare. I sat back comfortably and stared back. So, nothing much has changed really.

I had 3 really interesting visitors later in the day. One of my staff from my previous division brought me desert and we chatted for over half an hour. When she had to return to her office, I walked her back. It was then that I realized I must really like her (I only walk people I REALLY like)!

Visitor number 2 popped by in the late afternoon: a very intriguing character...

But that's story for another day....

cuz I really want to talk about visitor number 3:

FIRE ANTS!!!!!

That wasn't the finale though.

Later in the evening, as I was going around inspecting the office, I noticed some shimmery yellow powder behind one of our huge cabinets... and a sign that read "POISON".

My colleague who shares the office will have lots of explaining to do when he returns from his course tomorrow.

Crude oil - absolute darling today. I went long and it went up (no, I won't cry over the 2k that I didn' take); I short it and it plunged.

Definitely starting to like June.

I had to google "fire ants", I am lucky enough to live in a country where the most dangerous wildlife are seagulls that steal your icecream.

Nice trades, the tall guy is back.

Sandy :-) Are you saying I'm gonna get burnt? :-)
I'm a crackpot. Firecracker trade suits me just fine :-)

I doubt it Jules. I'll stick with Forex and see how that goes.
