Generally speaking, if I’m posting a lot to a blog, it means I’m not being very productive in other writing endeavors. I’ve been taking a class this week - basically, a 3 semester hour class crammed into three 8 1/2 hour days - so my brain is a bit fried. I’ve learned that perhaps the only way the NASD could be more strict in regulating the activities of its members and their representatives is if they put a radio-controlled cyanide capsule in their brains so it can put down anyone who breaks the rules with the push of a button. This is a good thing for investors, really, but this fierce regulation can create odd moments of humor. For example, the NASD (under the Code of Procedure) has the authority to censure, suspend, expel, and bar representatives and members who violate its rules, as well as to impose UNLIMITED fines and “any other penalties deemed appropriate.” The instructor joked that this could include your right hand and your first born child. This is clearly no industry for a dishonest man! Unless he really hates his children, I guess… Just a joke, yes, but dire warnings of this sort have also given me no end of inspiration for a project I won’t even be touching for at least the next several months. If PARANOIA can benefit from detailed knowledge of the way things tend to work in a bureaucracy, why can’t I? There is an old adage that you should “write what you know,” after all, and if I don’t know about the Code of Procedure by the time I take the test for this class, I could be out of a job… Isn’t this fun? I wonder why I’ve been a bit less involved in my creative projects, this week. Actually, it’s not half so bad as that, but it amuses me more to include dire warnings about cyanide capsules, hand chopping, and immediate termination. It makes it sound almost like my professional life is filled with danger and intrigue. Thankfully, it is mostly routine with just enough surprises and stress to keep things interesting. Otherwise, I might not be able to concentrate on my creative endeavors, and that wouldn’t do at all. My creative energies have been sucked up by a first shift schedule and a full schedule of mundane study, but Matt Schick has been extremely busy. About two weeks ago, he suddenly decided to learn CSS and completely redesign the website for our writing, and I think it looks fantastic. I haven’t been as active there as I was last year, but he’s posted a short story every week for more than a year, now. Go read some of his stuff. I promise he’ll never mention the NASD in casual conversation. This entry was posted on Thursday, February 16th, 2006 at 3:44 am and is filed under Traitor Chatter.
