I owe someone an apology: brickcityman.

I owe someone an apology: brickcityman. I misread his comment here and misinterpreted his intentions. I am sorry, brickcityman. I was 100% wrong. I was as wrong as butterfly collars and man bags. I was wrong as broccoli flavored cotton candy! In my defense I am stuck at home with bronchitis and should not be engaged with any activity that involves rubbing more than two synapses together. So I was also wrong about signing onto TMF in such a state as well. I will now retire to the couch to see what the Discovery Channel has to offer. Hopefully this will not result in an apology letter to Mike Rowe or Ben Bailey.

 

Humbly, sincerely, and perhaps even quixotically,

 

Cato.

I also owe TMFDeej an apology for making such an a$$ of myself on his blog. Sorry, Chris.

No worries I guess...

 

I'm not normally one to counter-attack in the style I did, but I've been a bit on-edge lately...  Not anything to do with investing an the like, just everyday life sort of stuff...

 

Nevertheless for that I apologize

I want to apologise too!

I can't really think of what i should apologise for, but i just love to apologise.

Maybe i can put it on my tab? and then when i do something wrong, i'll already be covered.

I have the feeling I should apologise for recommending SQNM, but I am not sure this will turn out to be a bad recommendation in the end ...

I apologize for having missed the initial blog so I could have joined in the catfight.  Just kidding.

Cato,  it takes a real man to apologize, nice to see some courtesy on the blogs. Sorry that you are under the weather. Don't forget to throw out your old toothbrush. I recommend some hot tea. Ginger tea works best, but peppermint is pleasanter.

I think Cato is a girl..lol

This blog explains those studies that say that women are (slighty) better long-term investors then men..

They are probably better at admit mistakes, taking a lose & walking away from an investment..

Might be good investment advice for us guys also..lol

I read that exchange and wondered what crawled into your Cheerios to make you so fussy.   Hope you feel better soon.  I agree with the hot tea suggestion.  I like chamomile and fresh lemon (as well as a good chicken soup) when I'm under the weather.

@ dragonLZ

 

As I said on the second comment to this, I do regret being overly aggressive in my responses.  Its not been a very good week for me so far (you know its bad when the only thing positive is your end of day portfolio change), and I allowed that the to bleed over. 

 

Again, for that I apologize.

 

As for being annoying (to you and others I'm sure), in case you haven't guessed I often like to take a contrarian position with my main intention being to test people's assertions and suss out their motivations and rationale.  Suffice it to say, just because I may argue with you does not mean I disagree with you.  If having your statements challenged is not of interest to you then you are fully within your rights to ignore my comments.

Cato,

I want an apology as well!  You are so ill with bronchitis that you should not be engaged with any activity that involves rubbing more than two synapses together and you can still come up with phrases like butterfly collars and broccoli-flavored cotton candy as expressions of inherently wrong ideas.  The rest of us may as well crawl back into our caves and pull our thesaurases (thesauri?) in after us.

I may never blog again if you are going to set the bar that high!

Mary,

I wrote that after my fever broke. Until then I was functioning with half my judgement and common sense tied behind my back. I had this nagging sensation that I had screwed up and was horribly embarrassed after realizing what happened. Any high bar setting was purely accidental and will not be repeated. To you I offer my apologies for causing you any measure of angst. Please don't consider not blogging again. You are one of the brightest lights in Fooldom. It would be a shame for us not to see you shine.

Cato.

Brick, I didn't mean anything bad (didn't I call you one of my favorite bloggers right before I told you: you drive me crazy?)

You being a contrarian bear, and me being a raging bull... you know what I mean...

But I do love a good discussion (as long as you agree with me)... :)

Good Luck Y'all!
