I’m completely aware that hurricane Sandy is dangerous, as all storms are. I’m also aware that, at the very least, it’s very inconvenient to millions of people. That said, social media has made me jealous of all the people that get to light candles, get drunk, and miss work. I want to be those people. But I’m on the west coast, where the weather is really nice. It’s terrible. And it makes me feel terrible. I blame Mark Zuckerberg.
It’s tremendously helpful, especially if you’re not as diligent as some in keeping up with the candy exchange rates. For instance, I know it’s really popular right now to buy Smarties on margin using more popular candies like Snickers as collateral, but if tastes change, those calls are going to come, and you’re going to get wiped the eff out. Trade responsibly.
And it’s time to get dressed, unless you, like so many other eager partiers, blew your Halloween wad a little early this year, in which case, you’re probably just looking forward to a few days of rest and recovery. Which is why we’ve engineered a few posts over the next few days to allow you to live vicariously through other revelers, with no damage to your head or liver. It’s the greatest gift since Christmas.
