Turning those lemons into lemonade

It's troubling to read that housing prices are plummeting (unless, of course, like me, you find yourself in a region where you could never in a million year purchase a home unless you won the lottery). Real estate auctions (don't those only happen in the midwest or during a Michael Moore film set in a union town?) are becoming more common in California. Developers are selling homes for LESS than their formerly lowest asking price. What's going on?!

Well, I'm here to tell you that there's no cause to worry. In fact, I have a silver lining for you. You see, Google announced today that its earning for Q3 have soared even higher than analysts' predictions. Silicon is the new gold, my friends. Or, at least, shares of Google stock is the new gold. So, despite all this homeowner malaise, we have something to cheer about. We can take our shares of Google to the bank! Falling home prices mean Googlers can buy even more! I'm so happy for us all.

Really, though, there's nothing like the joy that comes from wishing overpaid Silicon Valley-wags a job well done. I'm thrilled. I couldn't be more ecstatic. I can't wait to become a member of the Google slave caste.

So, go sell your Google stock, buy that dream house. Just a little warning: the Revolution is coming!
