Check out a blog that includes a “most expensive” list of random items such as parking spots, earbuds, and bottles of champagne. It’s a funny blog to look around at if you like seeing the insane luxuries in the world today.

There has been a recent trend here I’ve been noticing in the business world. Everyone and their dogs are changing their text to a calming light blue and font to a bland “corbel.”
Even my dad did it, which says a lot.
In response, I shall continue all my business correspondence in this type of font and color.
Today something marvelous happened. I ran out of appraisals to work through. This never happens. So I thought I’d talk a little about what I do for a living!
I look at this about 85 times today. If you’ve ever financed a mortgage you’ve probably got one of these for you house. As the underwriter I check the appraiser’s work and make sure houses are valued correctly.
It’s pretty interesting- I’ve learned a lot about house values, the real estate market, communication in the business world…
That’s about all you can say about it. Any questions?
Can I confess something?
I cannot wait to see WALL-E.
At first I thought for sure that this film would flop. I remember seeing a short teaser that introduced the cute little robot and his name, and I was slightly irritated that I knew nothing else but that.
But I appear to have grossly pre- and mis- judged this movie. Nearly every critic you read goes to great lengths to praise this Pixar creation. I hope to enjoy the film as much as they have this eve.
Please enjoy some WALL-E trailers today. There’s nothing like cute little robots making cute little noises in a deserted, apocalyptic world.
