    Uh oh, better short my Marcoliani stock...

    sounds like an OTC trade.

    According to him:

    I would love to meet the guy who feels the need to write that on the internets. Actually, maybe I wouldn't.

    Is he a self-sovereign?

    How can I be one, it sounds highfallutin'.

    What if Kabbaz uses his Triple-Kryptonite?

    Do you mean 3x3 Kryptonite? I dunno...that depends on if it's red or green.

    Sorry ... I didn't post the 2008 Sartorial Excellence dates until March 2, 2007. I'll try to do it earlier for 2009.

    LOL. I did not mean to criticize you. I'm just mad at myself for not noting the date sooner.

    I live in NYC and would like to go. But I must admit that is a bit intimidating.
