I have been dealing with unbelievable problems with this new fucking home today, like you wouldn’t believe. Have you ever seen the movie “The Money Pit”? That’s my situation and I feel like committing arson because of it.
Stocks treaded water. But heavily shorted stocks like APKT, YELP and VHC splurged ahead, impaling shorts along the way.
We’re all worked up ahead of the Fed. You just know they will disappoint. It’s too goldilocks right now and I don’t believe in fairy tales. I should have sold some stocks today, but didn’t due to my fucking money pit. I need to make more money by focusing on the market, since I will be spending it all in the coming weeks and months ahead on this fucking house. I deeply regret not buying APKT, favoring the obscene ongoings of PPC instead. Nevertheless, hindsight is 20/20 and I have no complaints, being up almost 0.5% on a day when I expected nothing.
I’ll talk to you gents later when I cool down.

This hole is quite frustrating indeud, you still got HDGE? I might exercise some vagrancy in VXX long.
do yourself a favor, and smack a yard-pleb with a shovel or something. at the very least guilt trip mrs. fly into some sexual healing
You have family, superior intelligence, and wealth. In the overall scheme of things, the house is a minor bump in the road. A young single man, free and easy, could create far larger problems for himself, doing what young bucks do.
The worst part about owning “The Money Pit” is that after you’ve poured all of your money into it, you have to share it with Shelley Long.
I am trying to have the exterior of our house painted now, which local contractors have turned into The Manhattan Project both in terms of cost and complexity. Fortunately, however, Mrs. Anton is not Shelley Long.
As one of Jake Gint’s favorite presidents used to say, “I feel your pain.”
Funny. The Manhattan Project.
Perfect way to trivialize the efforts of contractors.
Nice choice with the pic of Lloyd.
Last winter I realized I’d always been the caretaker.
The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! “how could you do something so vicious?” “You forget, I spent two years as a building contractor.”
The painters fucked up my laundry tub. I, corrected them.
painter always do that. its in there dna.
great post! sorry for your homezilla problems. as for thoes shorted stocks, lol it might be time to short them , nobody wants to get in front of da clam.
started a pos in vxx. small. rollin da dice.
Wouldn’t a Home Inspection reveal some of these problems you’re having with your new home? Or, is it one of those “older” homes that needs restoration? Now those can be money pits.
The house is not old. The inspector dropped the ball.
Fading the pandering craze here, must say I have squadoosh sympathy for those who may be disappointed with the Fed gnome. Expectations invariably lead to disappointments. It is axiomatic. To build expectations around anything connected with government hamsters dressed in big boy suits is an exercise in futility. So, back to Mrs. R who is totally at piece with TIF and Neiman and Bergdorf and Coach. Me too.
Let’s see here:
Shorts were unmercifully squeezed
Jackson Hole will yield nothing
September will melt down
The summer is officially over
You are always buying someone else’s problems with the purchase of a home. You’ll get it the way you want it someday, probably get bored and then move again.
Cannot wait for the follow up post on the house issues.
Screw the markets Fly. Your house problems have to be more fertile fodder for humor at this point. When the clawfoot bathtub plummets from the 3rd story bathroom down to the basement, now that’s entertainment!
home inspectors make you sign a disclaimer/waiver, which in most cases leaves you on your own.
“Peter: I’ve tried on three separate occasions to get through it, and I get to the scene where all the guys are sitting around on the easy chairs…
Lois: Yes, it’s a great scene, I love that scene.
Peter: It’s not a great scene, I have no idea what they’re talking about, it’s like their speaking a different language. That’s where I lose interest and fade away.
Chris: They’re speaking Italian!
Lois: The language they’re speaking is the language of subtly, something you don’t understand.
Peter: I love The MONEY PIT. That is my answer to that statement. ”
When you buy an old house in Jersey, like I did, that”s what you stand a good chance of getting. Hopefully, there is no smell of decomposing flesh coming through the walls.
lol, hey guys were is jimmy(hoffa), i dont know he went out for a ka-nish, i think, or some-tin.
Come on over to my house: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5C7Dsmh8Vo&noredirect=1
I guess if Ben disappoints, the Devil will make out like a bandit with his short. If not, he will lose.
just be thankful you didn’t go out and buy a boat!
Nothing better that a friend or family member that owns a boat.
Despite any market losses, if Mrs. Fly is happy that’s a leveraged position that moves in favor.
