and after 3 days, he is risen!

If you are paying $20 for a haircut, I imagine people assume you did it yourself anyway.

Pocket change cost me my first and only black girlfriend.   It was in the middle of a roaring poker boom and I was flush in ways most men don't even bother dreaming of. Money, it was like dirt to me

I can’t speak for everyone else, but I have significantly less going on in my life now compared to the heyday, and I also realize that a lot of things I find interesting are in fact not interesting. 

Totally disagree.  Everything you talk about is interesting to me.  (Especially detailed office politics)

Things move slower because there are fewer people, but there are several of us that check in every day or two, and several more than check in weekly or monthly.  It's nice to catch up, but things certainly don't move at a fast pace anymore unless something interesting happens to someone or Mexico comes in to post a picture of his dogs.  The other mega thread is still like 4000 pages ahead of us and they haven't moved to the next page in like 5 years.  If you stick around, that will liven the place up!  Tell us about this AMAZING paint product!  Why should I buy it for my home and all my relatives homes?

You ever wonder when you're rolling paint on a wall why you have to stop rolling in the corner and use a brush? Me neither, but my brother did, so he enclosed the end of a paint roller so you can paint on two sides of a wall at the same time. I guess it's like being the only one allowed to drive in the carpool lane during rush hour traffic, pros love it. So we hawk those now.

Yesterday we went downtown and went to the Art Institute.  There is a new Andy Warhol exhibit that was great fun to see.  In the afternoon we saw my cousin put on a painting demo at Blick Art Supplies  (They paid for 3 nights at a downtown hotel and his flights to come paint at the store for 2 hours).  At the end of the demo he gave me his painting, so that's going on the wall.  (https://lasaterart.com/ for reference)

To end the night we went to the Original Billy Goat Tavern and had some burgers (a few of our group went to House of Blues) and then we went home.  It twas a fun day.

Would you plunk down €25k to play in a tournament knowing that the casino owner was also in the tournament? 

A) Absolutely fine. After all, casino owners are renowned for their honesty and straight forward dealings.  

2) No

last) **** no.

 

-edit

Does it change your answer if the location of the casino is in Eastern Europe?

Strat, my 401k at my old company is now closing and I have to move it. Can you help me reallocate my funds amongst my current 401k (principal with limited choices), IRA, and Roth IRA (both at vanguard)?

This time of year always sucks for me. My allergies ramp up into 5th gear and so I feel not necessarily sick but in that phase where you feel like you're coming down with something only for weeks at a time. About 70% of the time I end up with a gnarly sinus infection somewhere between late September and mid-October. While I don't have that this year I just constantly fell run down, have a runny nose and slight cough most days from sinuses draining. 

Sorry you're under the weather naps, that was my lame attempt to commiserate.

Why not use the vanguard models? I would use their risk tolerance questionnaire to figure out what the allocation should be.

As far as your 401k, what’s the lineup, and what did the questionnaire tell you to have in equity?

Watchmen is taking it's place. I have absolutely no idea what the hell is going on in any of those trailers. 

The first episode was intriguing.

Watchmen premiere was good. Probably not as enjoyable for Suited.

Why? I wasn’t a huge fan of the movie, but it’s okay. The show looks intriguing.

It takes place in the same world as the movie. 

It's focus is also probably about taking down white supremacists. 

Oh i see. So they turned it into a SJW jerk off?

Direct boss has been at a conference all week, was back in the office today.

Today was my least productive day this week in terms of moving the ball forward on any of my projects/tasks/deliverables. 

I really hope correlation isn't part of causation but, in my gut, I don't think that's the case.

As long as blooom doesn’t cause you to look at your 401k allocation as something to “stay on top of,” it’s probably OK. $10/month is not a big deal. You could use the vanguard allocations and risk tolerance questionnaire to do it on your own, but $120/year is a small price to pay to not have to try to map your plan’s fund lineup choices to the various asset classes. 
 

If you do go the do it yourself route, just make sure you’re doing automatic rebalancing annually, or do it manually if you don’t have that option.
