1/23    So I was in Macy's today and noticed all their suits are 40% off.
        I was kind of thinking I need a new suit and was wondering which
        brand I should buy: Burberry, Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren or Calvin Klein?
        They all are about the same price. This is going to be my only suit,
        mostly for weddings and funerals. I will keep my old black wool suit,
        but since I put on 10 pounds, it doesn't fit as well as it use to.

12/10   Saw a homeless guy today with a sign asking for money who had on
    a Wharton School of Business sweatshirt.
        \_ It's not Haas.
           \_ I did see a homeless guy in Las Vegas with a Cal hat on once.
              \_ How do you know he's a homeless guy and not some weird
                 social science major guy experimenting with the idea

4/30    John McCain's wife looks pretty good for someone of her age.
        I mean, she could be my grandma but DAMN that is pretty good
        looking grandma, for someone of her age. Good job John McCain,
        I may vote for you afterall.
        \_ It's good to have money, which she does. We're not only talking
           surgery, but also the ability to live a good life - cosmetics, spa
