Gadabout Went on the Cheap

Even though Gadabout prays for heavy holiday spending, he went on the cheap this year. Holiday spending is good for the economy and stock market (so we’re told) and since I am a middle class nobody with simple financial holdings, it is always nice to see some meager growth instead of a decline. Maybe this is why I spend during the holidays at all – I want to see my portfolio grow!

Now, I say I went cheap, but that is in comparison to past years when I have blown the Olympian wad on bundles of junk that seldom sees the light of day. Yes, I bought some cool stuff this year, but I didn’t go nuts either. The spirit of spending was just not in my blood as in years past, but I do hope it boils over in the majority of the population. I dream of melting credit cards and stacks of cash trading hands. I dream of a rising Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P. I dream and savor the thought of my own personal holdings growing in light of credit crunches and a mysterious World Bank interventions. What the hell is the World Bank anyway? I cannot find a single branch office in Virginia, and Virginia is part of the world, isn’t it?

It is Christmas Eve, so get out there and spend yourself into deep and everlasting debt in a quiet quest of keeping Gadabout afloat in 2007. What are you waiting for? Go! Buy a new car, jewelry and electronics!

"What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace"

Merry Christmas,

I think I helped you out, Jaws. Snacker is not loving my economic plan, however. Nikki
