You know what I mean. In that sort of squirmy-can't-hold-still restless-leg-syndrome we-can't-afford-a-dividend and I can't-not-get-the-wife-jewelry this year sort of way. Well, and they are just hot in general too, frankly. Forgetting even that they fear no CEO, and love causing discomfort to others at cocktail parties. What's not to love?

3:22:28 PM muffiehbs05: Gawd! No! Ew!

3:25:56 PM ohhoneyitstess: it's almost close, maybe she'll be done soon
3:26:02 PM ohhoneyitstess: by close i mean the close of the market, muffie
3:26:20 PM muffiehbs05: What? It closes at 5, doesn't it?
3:26:51 PM equityprivate: muffie, you are so mercifully free of the ravages of intelligence.
3:27:19 PM muffiehbs05: That's absurd.
3:28:53 PM ohhoneyitstess: muffie, tell us what you did today
3:29:05 PM ohhoneyitstess: you didn't go into the office, i'm assuming, yes?
3:29:52 PM muffiehbs05: I was too tired. And I'm kinda sore after last night.
3:29:59 PM equityprivate: hi tess
3:30:29 PM equityprivate: do I even want to know how you managed to get sore on a monday night? clearly not from the treadmill.
3:31:25 PM ohhoneyitstess: you didn't go in b/c you were sore?
3:31:29 PM ohhoneyitstess: how'd the md take to that excuse?
3:31:49 PM muffiehbs05: I don't really do excuses anymore.
3:31:55 PM ohhoneyitstess: oh, that's nice for you
3:32:03 PM muffiehbs05: Well it really just saves everyone time.
3:32:24 PM muffiehbs05: Plus, the guy I was working for, I don't think he's working anymore. I guess the fund he worked for didn't do very well.
3:32:39 PM equityprivate: wait, your boss worked for the flagship fund?
3:32:52 PM muffiehbs05: Not my boss, my patron. You know, my sponsor.
3:33:08 PM equityprivate: from the orientation class or what?
3:33:34 PM muffiehbs05: No, you know, like he looks out for me and we go out when his wife isn't in town?
3:33:57 PM ohhoneyitstess: wait
3:34:05 PM ohhoneyitstess: you mean the guy who looks like our activist crush?
3:34:11 PM muffiehbs05: Who?
3:34:21 PM ohhoneyitstess: dl!
3:34:30 PM equityprivate: he looks like Dan Loeb!?!
3:34:42 PM muffiehbs05: What? Who is Dan Loeb?
3:34:54 PM equityprivate: my god, he is so hot!
3:35:06 PM equityprivate: and so married. its such a shame.
3:36:51 PM ohhoneyitstess: yeah it is a shame, although it's not as though marriage has ever stopped big muff before
3:37:34 PM muffiehbs05: Hold on, let me google Dan Lobe.
3:37:42 PM equityprivate: muffie, it's Loeb.
3:37:46 PM muffiehbs05: Oh.
3:37:56 PM equityprivate: Activists in general are just... hot.
3:38:44 PM ohhoneyitstess: yeah they are
3:38:47 PM ohhoneyitstess: they get so riled up
3:38:53 PM ohhoneyitstess: u still have a thing for tom?
3:39:08 PM equityprivate: Loeb wrote me an email once. he was the namesake of one of my worst management prizes on the Going Private blog.
3:39:20 PM equityprivate: oh, tom hudson DOES make me weak in the knees.
3:39:32 PM ohhoneyitstess: even though his fund has shit the bed?
3:39:44 PM muffiehbs05: Activists? Like protestors?
3:40:01 PM equityprivate: just getting back to his roots, tessy.
3:40:30 PM ohhoneyitstess: hehe
3:40:36 PM equityprivate: no, muffie, shareholder activists
3:40:39 PM equityprivate: you know, they buy up 5% of a publicly held...
3:40:42 PM equityprivate: ...that triggers a SC 13D filing requirement...
3:40:45 PM equityprivate: ...then they proceed to alpha-male-investor away at the current management *swoon*
3:40:56 PM muffiehbs05: They are not hot. What about Carl Icahn?
3:52:19 PM ohhoneyitstess: carl icahn is hot, objectively, but i'm not attracted to him
3:52:22 PM ohhoneyitstess: something about his...
3:52:23 PM ohhoneyitstess: age
3:52:35 PM equityprivate: oh, that's the part I love!
3:52:51 PM muffiehbs05: EP just wants her daddy to spank her, that's all.
3:53:08 PM equityprivate: carl icahn does NOT look like my father.
3:53:16 PM muffiehbs05: Ok, EP wants her uncle to spank her.
3:53:42 PM ohhoneyitstess: eww
3:53:45 PM ohhoneyitstess: to the uncle
3:53:48 PM ohhoneyitstess: the spanking?
3:53:49 PM ohhoneyitstess: maybe
3:54:40 PM equityprivate: whatever, I still think icahn is kinda hot.
3:57:51 PM muffiehbs05: Yeah, if you want to be spanked by your uncle.
3:58:23 PM equityprivate: muffie, you should be so lucky that Carl Icahn would want to put you over his knee and smack your little, lilly white ass.
3:59:45 PM muffiehbs05: I've been spanked by better.
3:59:55 PM equityprivate: better *what* exactly?
3:59:55 PM ohhoneyitstess: oh, yeah?
3:59:57 PM ohhoneyitstess: who
4:00:02 PM ohhoneyitstess: spanks
4:00:05 PM ohhoneyitstess: who
4:00:06 PM ohhoneyitstess: names
4:00:06 PM muffiehbs05: Just never you mind.
4:00:09 PM ohhoneyitstess: where/when/what appartus
4:00:11 PM ohhoneyitstess: shut up muffie
4:00:13 PM ohhoneyitstess: you love to talk
4:00:16 PM muffiehbs05: Hairbrush.
4:00:20 PM muffiehbs05: If you must know!
4:01:03 PM equityprivate: the newly promoted MD down the hall from your office doesn't count, muffie.
4:01:19 PM muffiehbs05: Why not!? That's bullshit!
4:01:25 PM equityprivate: see, i knew it.
4:01:49 PM ohhoneyitstess: why doesn't it count, ep?
4:01:52 PM ohhoneyitstess: just out of curiosity
4:02:00 PM ohhoneyitstess: does it have to be a fund manager?
4:02:05 PM ohhoneyitstess: cause they take no prisoners?
4:02:10 PM equityprivate: because she didn't do anything but walk by his office once (since she's only been there once)
4:02:31 PM equityprivate: well at the very least he cant be from the same office.
4:02:50 PM equityprivate: its not some kind of HR thing, its just keeping the crush pure.
4:03:10 PM muffiehbs05: Well how am I supposed to compete then?
4:03:40 PM equityprivate: muffie, we weren't talking about guys you slept with, it was crushes. you don't have to bang everyone you have a crush on.
4:03:49 PM muffiehbs05: Wait, I don't understand...
4:03:53 PM equityprivate: nevermind
4:04:14 PM ohhoneyitstess: sorry, dozed off there for a sec
4:04:17 PM ohhoneyitstess: but wait
4:04:18 PM ohhoneyitstess: muff
4:04:21 PM ohhoneyitstess: re: how can i compete
4:04:27 PM ohhoneyitstess: showing up to the office would be a start
4:04:36 PM ohhoneyitstess: it's all smooth sailing/spanking from there
4:04:49 PM equityprivate: you working or something tess? I notice most of the articles are from you nowadays.
4:05:00 PM muffiehbs05: Ok, just shut up.
4:05:35 PM ohhoneyitstess: ep, tell us who the latest hf crushes are
4:05:57 PM equityprivate: well, I kind of have a thing for Bob Chapman.
4:06:06 PM equityprivate: he reminds me of the alien bounty hunter guy on x-files.
4:06:30 PM ohhoneyitstess: i don't know him
4:06:39 PM ohhoneyitstess: hey, if you like ichan, what about james simons?
4:06:43 PM ohhoneyitstess: he's a dinosaur
4:06:52 PM equityprivate: that sort of deep, penetrating look that says, "just try to avoid completing a stock buyback program."
4:07:46 PM equityprivate: well, he's not really an activist, tessy.
4:08:10 PM muffiehbs05: That guy looks like Camilla Soprano's father.
4:08:12 PM ohhoneyitstess: bob chapman does?
4:08:22 PM muffiehbs05: No, no no. Simons does.
4:08:26 PM equityprivate: you know Simons muffie?
4:08:38 PM muffiehbs05: Sure, I was at a party somewhere and he broke it up.
4:09:01 PM equityprivate: I don't want to know. really.
