Wow! A whole month off. I feel like my WSO muscles have atrophied a bit from disuse. The rest did me some good, I got a little tiny bit of travel in, I managed to save a deal that appeared to be going sideways in a hurry, and I kicked off a little start-up of my own (which so far has taught me some pretty surprising things about Facebook).

So what did I miss around here? Obama walked through Romney to no one's surprise other than Romney himself, apparently. As much as I don't particularly care for the guy, I had to throw some grudging respect to Obama over the way he handled election day. While Romney was out running around trying to drum up votes like a madman, Obama was shooting hoops with Scottie Pippen, OG-style. I'm guessing he wasn't worried about Romney for a single minute during the campaign.

What else big happened? Oh yeah, AAPL got clobbered. What's up with that? Fortunately, I bought it all the way down and now my average cost is $593. Yeah, yeah, I know. You own it at $40 a share and started buying it when you were eight years old with your paper route money. Shut up. Some of us were late to the party.

What's been going on around here? Anybody get banned while I was gone? I'll admit that I haven't checked in too often. Catch me up on the monkey gossip.

It's good to be back, and over the next few days I'll cover some of the stuff I did while I was out. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and that you're ready to put the finishing touches on 2012. If the Mayans are right, we've all only got 25 days left to live, so let's make the most of them.

    Anyone who doesn't believe in the end-of-world prophecy is no friend of Mayan.

    The HBS guys have MAD SWAGGER. They frequently wear their class jackets to boston bars, strutting and acting like they own the joint. They just ooze success, confidence, swagger, basically attributes of alpha males.
