LOL wut? Awesomeness is wut

Life is crazy.

And wonderful, of course.

Things gonna be buck. so much going on.

Beach was amazing. wanna live there forever.

Like the idea of a combination study, writing room, with library, make music, listen to music. Then, meditation room and exercise room. Three rooms ultimately. I want to truly have my own place -- must work on that. I love Sundaying it. This lazy Sunday night is turning into Monday morning, but I'm just getting things tight and comfortable - ready to work.

Oh man...

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You might be wondering what's been up with this 'softer, gentler side' of your sign (read: moodier, less chatty, more of a homebody) that's recently made itself known. But before you waste too much thought on it (and before I launch into a horoscope-length exposition on said pondering), let's just stop right there. Why bother with that? This weird funk is quickly turning into yesterday's news, Gemini, and that's why there's little reason to even focus more energy on it. You will surely face more relevant questions now that the astrological tides are turning. And whatever your most pressing question ends up being, the right answer to it is most certainly: Whatever makes you feel good. More fun is bursting in through every leak in the ceiling and slit in your skirt (feel it yet? it's starting off slowly), with increasing intensity next week and then the following. You definitely don't want to miss out on that do you? So, if, during this transitional week, you feel you need to, say, put a certain someone in his/her place, in order to keep yourself happy, don't waste another minute waiting. And if that someone is a certain guy or girl who's recently (or a long while ago) proven not to work so well as a love interest, then make special haste. Your love zone's heating up, and, if you're open to it, the next person (or some other adventure) should be right around the corner.

Everyone loves to complain about the accelerated pace of modern life. Remember the good old days, they say, when life was leisurely, commerce was more genteel, and everyone watched the same television and read the same newspaper?

Lest we get too nostalgic, keep in mind the upside of a sped-up world:

President Bush put steel tariffs in place in March 2002. Less than two years later, in December 2003, he rescinded them. This is something most politicians don't do. But because the tariffs caused such a sharp rise in the price of steel, small and mid-size businesses complained loudly. The unintended consequences became visible to most American's very quickly.

Randomly surfing news channels yesterday, I saw an economic analyst from a leading investment bank talk about his thoughts on surging oil prices.

Like a detective he pulled apart pieces of the story. He believed US demand for oil is in decline because people are cutting back on car usage. His theory for the continued rise in prices of crude was demand from China who he believed were stock piling supplies ahead of the Olympics, a process that would soon be over which would lead to a reduction in the price of crude.

His advice to those looking for more direction on this; try and monitor oil tanker movements in Asia.

It isn't Account Planning or detective work, but it's close.

Looking at numerous inputs and trying to work out the "Big Why?" is just the same.

If you are interested in tanker movements because you want to play the oil futures market, or are just care about when the price of your daily commute is going to come down, there's a specialist who provides this data, for a fee.
