    ^ great news Kwilk.

    My new granite counter tops and sink installation is going to cost me 50% of what I had budgeted, because my good friend who's going to build my house, hooked me up with his granite guy!

    That's badass.

    I aced my wine midterm today. I was worried about the blind tasting, but it turned out to be a lot easier than I thought. You don't think you can gain enough knowledge in just a couple weeks to identify a wine by color and smell and taste, but I did really well.

    Keep dreamin.

    We had a white that just kicked you in the dick with butter and was a more golden yellow than light, so it had to be a Chardonnay. Then we had a red that was really bright ruby color and on the nose you got a ton of cherries with cinnamon and earthiness in the mouth. I went w/ Pinot Noir.

    I just bumped into a former prof I had for my FX class in b-school. Great guy. Astonishingly, he recognized me. He's a very young 60'ish, 6'5" or so, good shape, born in India, and made his millions in the FX market right after the US went off the gold standard. A very gregarious and engaging guy who I really enjoyed as a prof. I used to love his stories about how the FX market were for young guys, because (keep in mind this was the 70's/early 80's, before the NetWebz, when real arbitage was still in existence.) you'd get a phone and have to "pull the trigger" in an instant on 10s of millions of dollars of currency. One major screw up, and you were toast.
