I think I’m going to have to visit the doctor. I only got an hour’s sleep last night, and I was awake up until I actually fell into Slumber-Land. Completely awake. Ugh. I feel OK at work today, but this has got to stop.

On the plus side, I used some of my copious free time last night to finish off Accountability. I’m hoping to send out a request for testers today, so I can make sure there are no major bugs before putting it up for download.

I bought 50 shares in Be, Inc. today, through DLJdirect. And made $60. Then lost $50. ;-) Seriously, I’ve actually been checking back on the price constantly today, like if I keep a really close eye on it, it’ll be sure to go up. And I know (intellectually) that it’s best to wait a few weeks, even on stocks you’d be willing to trade rapidly, before even worrying about their value. But it’s like a video game — will I make money? Won’t I? If I sold half, would it be worth it? Should I stick with what I’ve won, or go for Door Number 3? It really is addictive, and I’ve only been using it for a day!

Oh, and I came across this today on The Onion (it’s been edited a bit):
