At least all I can do is go up

Posted by: OriginalFund on May 03, 18:46 in response to islander's post Top gaining funds for April 2012. Congrats to [BONDS] at #1.

I'm trying to recall the good old days of earlier this year, when I was in the top 10 or even the top 5. 14 years I've been playing this game, and I'm still making stupid mistakes like thinking that Will Ferrell pretending to speak Spanish is a good idea for a movie, or that people will flock to see two relative unknowns in a romantic comedy that's about the intensely fascinating drama involved in muddling through life.

Top gaining funds for April 2012. Congrats to [BONDS] at #1.   islander on May 01, 16:06

My first full month as a fund manager and I'm #9! Yay! {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on May 01, 16:21

I didn't know you managed the Awards fund until I read above post. Well, now I've bought into it, so keep up the good work, ok?   Dave3626 on May 01, 17:58

LOL, I'll try to. :)   accountant_4_Jesus on May 02, 16:21

That's what Netflix is for, my Aussie friend. Why buy when you can rent a scratched up DVD that may or may not play? ;-) {nm}   Dave3626 on May 02, 16:52

I'm not sure we have Netflix here, or if we do, I haven't heard about it. (I must be living in some deep dark cave somewhere lol.)   accountant_4_Jesus on May 02, 21:34

Nope, no Netflix here. iTunes movie downloads also hideously overpriced.   Jane_Citizen on May 03, 00:52

Though I joked about the traditional disc rental, they also do streaming to your comp, which is why I'm surprised you don't have it there.   Dave3626 on May 03, 08:14

Sounds good ;) {nm}   accountant_4_Jesus on May 03, 16:01

Once we get our national fibre-to-the-node network thingy finished, I'm sure someone will do that.   Jane_Citizen on May 04, 08:00

Thanks for the compilation! Which ones are orphaned? TRUE hasn't moved much in a while... {nm}   arf on May 01, 17:08

Thnx. As for orphans, I haven't had time to really look at each managers performance, so   islander on May 01, 18:16

My wife thanks you, my daughter thanks you, my grandchildren thank you, and I thank you. {nm}   Buy StarBond Fund 18 on May 01, 20:56

Update: It's HARD being a Horror Fund manager 'round this time of year! Thanks to those who have invested...    HorrorFund on May 02, 06:44

October.... just remember October.... {nm}   RHAWK on May 02, 10:08

Yep! :) {nm}   Your Boss on May 03, 04:29
