Wednesday night and all day yesterday, I moved around like the dead. I lived in a world where ignorant hedge funds clash by night. A world now cracked open, with me on one side and GOOG irretrievably on the other.
Last night, I watched it soar to 500 and beyond. As it rose, my spirit sank. I knew that I would never own GOOG again. I had bad dreams all night.
This morning, in the office, by ten o'clock, I owned 200 new shares of GOOG. The price was exorbitant. I was wild with irrational exuberance. My life again has meaning.
