Do I really want to go out as Marian for less than half of a day?

 (A poor picture of me at the theater)

This past weekend was one spent as Marian.  However, all good things must come to an end, as I had to show up at today's co-op board meeting as Mario. This meant removing my nail polish, putting away my jewelry, and putting my legal identification in Mario's wallet for a couple of days.

Last night, I had a conversation with my brother about the stock market. Although the long term market trend is always going to indicate growth, the periodic downturns in the market indexes will cause people a lot of grief if they pay too close attention. Ideally, a person should have a portfolio which doesn't need a lot tending, save for an occasional rebalance or two during the year.

This morning, the stock market resumed its volatility, and is likely scaring people who have stomach for risk - such as Lili. Although I had the news on in the background, I didn't pay close attention to everything that went on. Instead, I focused on issues which may need to be addressed at tonight's co-op board meeting.

By the time I was ready to go to the meeting, I forgot all about getting money out of the bank. So I made it a plan to go there after the meeting was over.  As usual, the meeting took way too long. And I was a little frustrated at some of the issues which took way too long to resolve. There is one issue I can't talk about that worries me, and will likely cause us a lot of grief until it is resolved.

After the meeting, I went to the bank.  While on the road, I chatted with GFJ for a while, and wondered about tomorrow's snow, sleet, and ice that's expected. She may get 8"-12", while I expect only 4"-6" of precipitation.  The cleanup of this mess will likely take place on Thursday, and it will screw up another Marian Mode day - in part because snowfalls never get cleaned up properly in the neighborhood where game night is held.  I'll hate missing games for a third week in a row....
