Firday Morrning

Its Friday morning and all that I want to do is take a nice long nap and I probably will if only so I can be functional in class.
That last three days have been dedicated to writing papers and today isn’t going to be any different, however tomorrow had better be. Scorch Con is tomorrow and I think that I have more then earned a day of gaming and watching anime.
Any way before I do anything else I am going to make like Cinderella’s carriage and turn back into a pumpkin for about an howner or so.

Lame Joke

for a while now I have been getting the CarTalk news letter complet with the lame joke, any way this one was to good not to share.

Here's this week's Lame Joke of The Week, courtesy of Erin

An American businessman was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican
village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small
boat were several large yellowfin tuna. The American complimented the
Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch
them. The Mexican replied, "Only a little while, Senor."

The American then asked, "Why didn't you stay out longer and catch more

The Mexican said he had enough to support his family's immediate needs.

The American then asked, "But what do you do with the rest of your

The Mexican fisherman said, "I sleep late, fish a little, play with my
children, take siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each
evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos. I have a full
and busy life, Senor."

The American scoffed, "I am a Harvard MBA and could help you. You
should spend more time fishing and with the proceeds, buy a bigger boat with
the proceeds from the bigger boat you could buy several boats,
eventually you would have a fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your
catch to a middleman you would sell directly to the processor, eventually
opening your own cannery. You would control the product, processing and
distribution. You would need to leave this small coastal fishing
village and move to Mexico City, then LA and eventually NYC where you will
run your expanding enterprise."

The Mexican fisherman asked, "But Senor, how long will this all take?"

To which the American replied, "15-20 years."

"But what then, Senor?"

The American laughed and said, "That's the best part. When the time is
right you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the
public and become very rich, you would make millions."

"Millions, Senor? Then what?"

The American said, "Then you would retire. Move to a small coastal
fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your
kids, take siesta with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings
where you could sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos."
