hey zuckerberg: facebook me, marry me.

Forbe’s released their list of the top 400 wealthiest people in the universe yesterday.  The list, which says marital status, is like a guidebook for golddiggers!  (Though I suppose if you are a real golddigger, you don’t care what their marital status is.)  And guess who was on it?  Marky Mark Zuckerberg!  He is the youngest person on the list–he’s 24–and has a sweet 1.5 billion dollars.  Damnnnnn.  I wish I had created something as addictive as Facebook from my dorm room too. Most of the time in my dorm room was spent watching Law and Order with our South Korea Correspondent.  And it was awesome.

So when I was looking at pictures of MZ (just in case I ever run into him), something struck me about this photo.

See it? Haha.

Rumor has it that Mark has a girlfriend, Priscilla Chan, who also works on Facebook.  Oh well.  I hate the new Facebook anyway.

Perhaps I can set my sights on Beanie Babies founder Ty Warner.  He’s apparently single.  Kiddddding.

some are calling it black monday.

Now I didn’t go to business school (woooo liberal arts!) and I don’t know much about money and stocks.  But I do know that when people call a random day in September “Black Monday”, and Wall Street firms that I know the names of are in trouble, things are not good.

Still think the economy is fine, McCain?  Well, he does.  Just this morning he said once again “the fundamentals of our economy are strong.”

If you are like me and need some help understanding what’s going on, here are some links.

who knew loan applications were funny?

So I’m filling out a loan application, and the official loan papers have some specific requirements for certain states. Most of them say stuff about attorney’s fees that I don’t understand, but the state-specific rule for Alabama was pretty simple. It said only this:

“CAUTION — IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU THOROUGHLY READ THE CONTRACT BEFORE YOU SIGN IT.”

Excellent.

Okay now I’m off to drink margaritas and watch The Breakfast Club at Red Rocks. Be jealous.

it kinda paid off for monica.

Ah, don’t you love Stuff White People Like? Ol’ Christian Landers doesn’t post new entries very often, but when he does, I read, I laugh, I sigh and realize that I’m totally that white person he’s writing about. His latest entry, #105, is about unpaid internships:

White people view the internship as their foot into the door to such high-profile low-paying career fields as journalism, film, politics, art, non-profits, and anything associated with a museum. Any white person who takes an internship outside of these industries is either the wrong type of white person or a law student. There are no exceptions.

Last summer I turned down a full-time business-y job that would have paid me so that I could work part-time at a non-profit that could barely pay its employees, let alone its interns. Also, I was hoping to make my father even more irritated with me by continuing to make no money. Ever. It worked.
