    Please say something.

    .. I'm not sure I can take this. I feel so ill. Didn't sleep. Headache. Feeling of hopelessness. & the only person I can talk to is you. But you hate me. My brain is just going over & over everything that happened. Silence just drives it all in deeper. So I'm listening to...

    I Get the Whammy

    Stupidity should be painful for the people who are stupid, acting stupid, talking stupid, looking stupid, doing stupid.... How come when I encounter stupidity I'm the one who ends up in pain?  My head throbs, my jaw hurts, my eyes ache.... Why, why, why....?

    Work In Options

    If you do something stupid in options, you're probably gonna get your head handed to me. Of course, this has never befallen yours truly :) If you know of a place where it's not painful, with plenty of upside, please do tell!
