Cost-efficient marinades and Barry Levinson misfires!

So I called the student loan police, and once I typed in my SSN was INSTANTLY whisked away to a real life living and breathing customer service rep, rather than being presented with the electronic system as originally promised. My SSN apparently triggered some sort of "holy shit" mechanism in the phone system. The woman was serene enough, although I could tell in her voice that she wasn't reading anything encouraging on her computer screen. All I ended up doing was updating my information (thus ensuring that they start calling me all the time and ruining my seemingly boundless leisure time), and finding out how to allow my mom to access my student loan information. I'm hoping Mom can use her Mom powers to get me some kind of lowered payment deal. I cannot deal with people at all. "May I pay less?" "No." "Great, thanks. In fact, I wanted you to say no. I don't like it when I benefit from situations." Dickering is not a quality I possess even a molecule of. I don't have the patience or skill required for wheeling nor dealing, nor any combination of the two. Well, anyway, I'm sure my mom can figure out my financial problems for me, as I am both disinclined and ill-equipped to do so. I wish it didn't still feel good to hand off a problem to my parents, but somehow it still does. How very, very, very, very sad!

I took care of our garbage and recyclables situation, which was getting really out of hand. We tend to drink a lot of purchased beverages, and when we are done, we tend to take their now-empty containers and stack them on top of our refridgerator until it gets to the point where cans and/or bottles are falling off the fridge every time we shut the fridge door, falling loudly onto the stove and scaring us badly. It felt good to get all that crap out of our house. It's crazy the amount of shit that gets left behind simply from the act of getting through the week alive.

For dinner I made this meal where I marinate steak pieces in Caesar salad dressing and eat them with instant mashed potatoes and corn. It's delicious and it makes me proud that I have mastered a recipe that makes both my girlfriend and I full and content. I can only guess at the irreperable harm this meal has done to our bodies, but it tastes good so who cares if we get fat and everything in the world thinks we're disgusting? Whoopee for eating unhealthy shit!

Barry Levinson is really weird. I really like it when he makes comedies, because quite often these comedies are critical punching bags and box office disasters, and it's always very interesting to me when a movie is really viciously attacked, and becomes the target of endless late night talk show jokes. "Toys", "Jimmy Hollywood", and "Envy", which I just watched today, made hardly any money and were roundly despised by almost every critic there is, but all three are intriguing in their own very singular ways, and not without genuine laughs. There aren't usually any out and out jokes in them (i feel sorry for the poor bum who had to cut enticing trailers for these movies; in fact, that probably has a lot to do with why they do so crappy in the theater)but there are a lot of good little moments, and there's always a feeling that the people involved were really excited to be making this movie, and felt like they were taking part in something worthwhile. I wonder what goes wrong. I don't think it's entirely a case of critics viciously ganging up on a movie, because "Envy", considered from a distance, doesn't hold together as a film. I would have felt pretty nervous about impending test screening, had I directed or written or acted in this film, having viewed it once. There's so many exquisitely unnecessary scenes and impossible-to-deliver-with-any-conviction bits of dialogue. It actually had kind of a "Punch-Drunk Love" feel to it, for me anyway. It's also way too long, and feels like a first draft excitedly typed up by a drunk-though-not-unintelligent wiseass in some efficiency somewhere. I would be pretty hesitant to recommend it, but part of me would like to see it again. It's always interesting when a guy gets ahold of an expensive camera and just starts taping stuff. Make more not-good films, Barry!

I'm always tempted to buy Halloweed-sized bags of candy, but after a couple days you never want to eat that kind of candy again, no matter how much you originally enjoyed it. There is a limit to how much Laffy Taffy I can eat, it turns out. Hey, I found something out: If you are eating a spicy meal, and you accidentally eat a hot pepper and it's burning your throat in a scary and painful fashion, you should grab a whole bunch of Laffy Taffy, should you happen to have some lying around, and just start eating it. It helps a lot.

Energy & Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY)
Current Price $0.15
================================

Recognize this undiscovered gem which is poised to jump!!

Please read the following Announcement in its Entierty and
Consider the Possibilities�
Watch this One to Trad,e!

Because, EGTY has secured the global rights to market
genetically enhanced fast growing, hard-wood trees!

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
The value of this Stoc,k appears poised for growth! This one will not
remain on the ground floor for long.

KEEP READING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!


GO EGTY!

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
