I feel a certain emotional yearning for Betsy Ross and Lee O'Dentalfloss.
It does get a bit lonely sometimes cranking out these missives in isolation for the short syndicate.
I'm sorry about their mounting losses on the ZNGA long positions.
I made every attempt to steer these maidens of Wall Street in the proper direction.
However, they were both blinded by maya, the great veil of ignorance.
That's a rather common ailment on this board.
Furthermore, both Betsy and Lee discerned something attractive about Mr. P. in his work attire.
Yes, they found the t-shirt emblazoned with the red bull dog a symbol of the alpha male.
You can call it the Pinus Phallacy.
They forgot to ask why Mr. P. and his tribal brothers were dumping massive quantities of ZNGA paper
At $13-. More than $600 million dollars worth.
Mr. P. is the supreme market timer. He has proven it.
But on this little subject of the fair sex.
Women have a tendency to be highly irrational.
There is also that monthly four day cycle when they really need to be in a straight jacket.
Absolutely, they should never trade stocks during the full moon.
The funny thing is, I can't live with or without them.
That's a worse dilemma than a ZNGA long position.
Good Afternoon My Dear Odie !!! sorry to keep you in waiting ....the less interesting things in life such as errands and obligations have kept me from our lovely and enlightening chats .....
....by the way.....just so you can put your mind at ease....I have never experienced the insanity that plagues other women during that unclean time of month (as it is referred to in Leviticus)......and I truly doubt that betsypower has either.....for that would be an event not in line with his anatomy.....and as for Mr. Pinus....while I do find the Red Bull Dog attractive.....I have never invested irrationally.......so fear not my good man....all is well ;)
I'm just dying to meet you Lee. I'll pick you up at SFO. Look for the VW bus with the neon peace sign on the front. Don't worry about China Girl. She's out of the picture on one of her extended excursions in East Oakland. I'll bring my King James bible along. Remember, we'll do late night study of scripture by braille. Do you happen to enjoy dive bars? I know all the best joints. None of that tourist stuff for us. Fisherman's Wharf--out of the question. I simply await your reply.
Yours, Great Expectations.
