I wonder if anyone took my "advice" on that stock last post... jumped 25% since. :)

I'll have another chunk of money to invest later this week... time to get drunk!

long update + bonus new drunken habit

whats up y'aall?
I know ive been lacking in updates, but be assured all is well.

Just got back from tokyo, which was amazing. Look back at old posts to find out how much I love Japan. Tokyo may be the greatest city in the world, though I could do without all the nigerian pimps.

Highlights from the trip include:
1) a baseball game at the tokyo dome that went to extra innings and ended with a walk off homerun. Such an awesome game, and the atmostphere inside the dome was INSANE.

2)eating raw chicken ship the salmonella

3) A trip to Harajuku to scope the cosplay girls.
4) nitelife - no details sorry ;)

Right now I'm just wrapping up all the loose ends associated with moving back to canada (partying/drinking a lot) and really not playing as much as I should. Although, I'm running hot the times I do decide to play so I'll probably still book a good month.

May was amazing for me and hopefully a sign of bigger things to come. I'll definitely be acheieving some big goals of mine this year that I set out at the start of this blog a couple years ago.

Anyways, so I have this new drunken habit which is pretty interesting. I'm usually really good about not coming home black out drunk and playing poker. If I do, its usually penny stakes or something stupid. Usually I'll just hit my bed and pass out.

But yeah, so my new habit is similar to drunken poker, but a little wierder and completely facilitated by me being on the other side of the world:

I trade stocks.

Ususally when I get home from the club, its peak trading hours on the market.

But like seriously, who does this? I wake up the next morning and have confirmation of orders I have no reccolection of placing. If thats not weird enough, I think I'm a drunken stock savant. Each time I've done it, I've managed to flip the stock for a nice profit.

And I'm not totally messing up or throwing my portfolio off balance. I look the next morning and it all makes sense. So yeah, if it ain't broke...

Anyways, the latest stock I picked up last night was a bunch of Western Potash Corp. (WPX on TSE). I got it at $1.70 so we'll see what happens. Figured I'd post it to be accountable :)

So thats about it, take care everyone
