happy

Say what?

So i got up early this morning and checked on my stock options cause they expire on the 17th.

The price was bouncing up and down all over the place for the first hour of trading, so i decided to just call in and place a sell order as soon as it was positive.

The person at the company said they needed ot contact EA to verify the number of stocks, and they weren't answering at the momment so it would take 15 or so minutes.

So i looked at yahoo about 30 minutes later, and the price had jumped 50 cents. So i decided to call back and see if they'd processed the order, and at what price. So i called up, and they told me that the options had sold at $60.27. This sounded a little strange to me, so i double checked with them to make sure i'd gotten it right, and then i checked yahoo. According to yahoo the high price for today is $60.20 =)

Not sure where the extra 7 cents came from. Maybe there was a spike smaller than the timespan in which yahoo updates? I'd certainly expect major financial companies to have better tracking software than yahoo =) In any case, as long as they actually got that price i'm happy.

Now just watch, now that i've sold the stock will probably hit something ridiculous like $65 today =)

Stupid depressing company parties

Lots of cute interesting girls around, all of whom are there with guys that they're either going out with or married to.

They had two contests, one was the usual start with $1000 in fake money and gamble and whoever gets the most money wins. Of course i did pretty badly at it. I ended up at about $1600, but the top person had almost $20,000.

I did get called up in the raffle to do the "wheel of fortune," Like several other people i almsot stopped on the gold strip, which would have presumably been something cool. What i ended up with was a bottle of wine =P What am i going to do with a bottle of wine?

So yeah, i should head home now. And play lots of FF9. Tomorrow i should go get new car insurance.

Perhpas i should also stop by Costco and look into getting a digital camera. Allyn keeps telling me i need a better picture on my personal if i'm ever to have any hope of attracting anyone.

Of course in order to use it i'd need to get a new computer as well. Actually, this computer has a USB port, so i could use it i suppose.

I also have lots of anime to watch. I might also want to come into work and catch up some.

I don't know, i'll do stuff, i don't know if i really care what anymore.
