i've created a $50,000 fantasy account at ameritrade.com - you get an imaginary $50,000 in an ameritrade account that works just like a real one, to learn how to play the stock market. i'm thinking about getting a real account soon, so i thought i would try this one out for awhile. i bought imaginary shares in a number of stocks that are very low right now (AOL, Adobe, Peregrine Systems, GM, and PayPal). i quickly sold Adobe after it went up a little, and made a few hundred imaginary dollars.

to open a real account they require at least a $1000 investment, and you get 25 free trades (after that it is $8 a trade). i think i might go ahead and open an account a little while after i learn how it all works a little better.

matt is feeling much better, and is eating a brownie ice cream sundae. i finished some lovely business cards for a graphic design project for awhile yesterday, and put up "Hatchling" and "Welcome Embrace" on eBay. they are currently at .01 cents and $5.50 respectively (woo hoo!). matt and i stayed up till about 4:00 am sitting on the porch swing watching the bad-ass thunderstorms last night. he has written a short tale about goblins and we are thinking about collaborating on a children's book (i would illustrate it of course!). i may do some goblin art today. i haven't heard from sisters yet today - hopefully they got the Candy Pony fixed and are on their way home. i hate cars. cars are bad.

cars ARE bad

vincent is usually a very good car but lately he has been having issues and today we were supposed to take him in but dad realised it is not the transmission it is something else. so yesterday, because my car is out, matt-the-campos was going to pick me up from work, and his tire blew. so he came and got me in his brothers truck, and then we went back to his place where he and his brother wrestled with the tire a bit, and then i remembered that the same thing had happened to vincent and dad had gotten it off, and matt lives not too far from where dad works, so i called dad and he came over and they got the tire off.

in our next lives, when we are all cats, none of us will need cars, and neither will we be hit by them. did the girls get home and is the candy pony okay?
