Doom, Gloom, And A Wedding

Man, I'm sick. I've been getting steadily worse since Monday, and I can't stands it. It's just a cold, I guess, but I feel really weak and achey. Can't really get a good workout, and I'd like to just go to bed. Oh well.

Amy and I have a wedding to shoot this Saturday, so hopefully we're feeling better before then. Oh yeah, she's sick too of course.

So how about all the fish and bird die-offs in the news lately? It's a little freaky, and suspicious to me. I'm not scared by it, but there is that nagging feeling that maybe something is going on. I guess we'll see soon enough.

On another Doomsday-ish note, I've been reading up a little on the possibility of "hyper-inflation" happening very soon here in the U.S. I don't know how possible it really is, but I think I'm going to start an emergency food and supply pantry in the garage just to be safe.
It's something I should already have anyways living near the gulf and all. A couple of years ago, Hurricane Ike had some areas of Houston without power for more than two weeks. Be Prepared. Its the motto of Boy Scouts.

The bigger issue of where to invest my 401k and all that is a bit more worrisome.
Honestly, I really don't know all that much about finance. People are saying "invest in gold" or other commodities, but there is a gold "bubble" now right? If I bought in high, wouldn't I stand a good chance of losing big when it bursts?
