I don’t know anything…

about the stock market. I have no idea what Dow J  8,519.21 (-5.69) means. I only know that I now have Aflac stock and even when most of the other stocks were -something, my Aflac stock was usually +something.

Today was different. When I checked my iTouch, it showed AFL 37.24 (-13.33). All I know is that the head guy at Aflac who is in charge of the stock stuff sent us all an email saying not to worry and everything was going to be OK.

I was comforted by his words. I just started playing this game and $210 is a lot of money to have floating around out there.

AAPL and YHOO were in green today, but GOOG and DIS were red. My only brother has DIS and has seemed a bit worried lately. I think he has a little more than $210 in this game.

I think Aflac gives me more money for this game every month. But I’m thinking if my iTouch keeps showing AFL (-something), I’d be better off using the money to bet on a football game or something. I don’t think we have that choice though.

 

Some of my TV shows have started their new seasons. The shows that I watch regularly are House, Desperate Housewives, Pushing Daisies, Grey’s Anatomy, Lost, 24, and American Idol.

Grey’s was always a tough watch for me. I really only like McDreamy because he has a soothing voice and is a cyclist. DH is a favorite of mine although I had a little trouble adjusting to the five years later thing. I really liked Pushing Dasies last season but had trouble getting through the first two episodes this year. I’m not sure it’s even going to make it.

Lost is probably my very favorite and the one that drives me the craziest. I missed not having 24 on last year and wonder if it can recapture the intensity that has always kept me captivated.

 

Did I mention how sad I am that the Red Sox are not in the World Series? Poor Red Sox. Poor Red Sox fans. Poor little children that are forced into being Red Sox fans by their parents. I miss the freaking dirty, nasty helmets that haven’t been cleaned all year. Sooooo freaking sad.
