I'm in! But no offense, guys, I think the parties are more fun (better food, rinks, and atmosphere) in the "I Just Became A Millionaire" Club/thread.....

Great- It looks like we'll have a decent sized group. SO we need to come up with a theme song or slogan.

I'll start- How about

"Easy Come, Easy Go"

If you count from the peak at Oct 07, then yes I'm down 1M. I sure wish I could hit the reset button and redo this year.
