I heard today that if you have $1000 in the bank ( savings not credit cards) you are in the top 20% of the population.[/QUOTE]

So with that logic, if I have $10,000 cash in the bank, I am evil?

I'd believe it overall. Not much saving going on out there.
But there's no context. If your debts are greater than your assets, you have no wealth and it's a moot point. Having more nothing than someone else's nothing still means you have nothing.

Yep. I have plenty of cash flow, decent cash reserves, and a net worth in the negative six figures.

Whose wealth?
I have heard something similar. It pertains to the overall wealth of the planet. I can't find a link to the article though.

What happened to Christina Aguilera? This is a very recent photo of her performing at a Michael Jackson tribute show.

Things are continuing to become weird/unsettling at work.

Possible promotion or not, I don't want to be at this company past Mar 2012, if that far.

I miss this band:


And it is a fact that the strength of this band was inversely proportional to the length of Billy's hair. Gish kills.
I saw them on the Mellon Collie tour, and porcelina of the vast oceans live was one of the best live performances I've seen by any band, ever:

Babies and divorce and maybe a few bags of doritos?

I'm not into the whole diva singer scene but I own one of her CDs. She can wail. I freaking love her voice.

I recently got a promotion at work and am pretty stoked. There is at least one person (I am guessing it's "persons") who is a peer that has been giving me the cold shoulder lately. Yesterday, they made some really sarcastic, shitty comments at my expense. Sometimes I wish I didn't work in such a corporate, PC environment because from the mood I was in yesterday, I would have easily told them to fuck off and die. In those words.

Other than that, things are going well. Promotion. Back to the studio in a couple of weeks to finish up the new disc. Weather is starting to cool down a bit. I love this time of the year.

It was just a diddy on the radio. Ill try to find it. Was saying that most do not have enough to cover a car repair. Not sure it applied to available credit.

We don't have any debt so im sure that puts us in another % also. Doesn't mean that its not tight income wise though. Its allot of work to not get into debt.

You're going to fail miserably in America if you don't learn to bitch and whine about other people being responsible for you achieving your lofty goals.
