Hu Dat Girl

  • Ahem. Here is the promised Kelly Hu picture.  On wednesday, I mentioned that Kelly will be going up against the American Idol results show in ABC's "In Case of Emergency."  Plot outline:  A group of thirtysomethings who all went to the same high school are reunited and realize their lives didn't turn out as planned.  Any excuse to put up a Kelly Hu pic, baby. In edit: Changed pic to something a little less, uh, racey...
  • OK, lets focus.
  • The market curiously started down this morning.  No doubt it was the bullish outlook from Abby Joseph Cohen on CNBC this morning that worried investors as she boldy predicted that by the end of 2007, the SP500 would be at 1550 and the DOW would be at 15500 (10% higher).  Those of you who aren't familiar with Abby, may want to read a previous blog entry SAY WHAT, Abby Joseph Cohen that speaks to her year 2000 predictions.  The market seems to have shaken off the early contrarian bets.
  • Sure, I could've put a picture of Abby Joseph Cohen instead.  Sure.  Could've.
  • Kelly Hu won the Miss Teen America contest in 1985.  She also won the title of Miss Hawaii USA in 1993 and was a finalist at the 1993 Miss USA pageant held in Wichita, Kansas.
  • Payroll growth was up 132,000 in November, while unemployment ticked up to 4.5%.  "The idea of the economy hitting a hard landing or falling into recession just doesn't carry water when you get these kinds of unemployment reports. It's not here now. You'd need a lot weaker job growth to say the economy has fallen into a painfully slow period of economic growth," said Stuart Hoffman, chief economist at PNC Financial.
  • Kelly Hu has also been interested in martial arts since her early childhood, when her older brother would arrange for her to fight neighborhood boys.
  • In the category of copying someone else's comments and passing them off as your own, Random Roger found "Koko's" financial blog was doing this.  Updated today at Roger's in Progress on the Koko Caper.
  • Wallstripping with Lindsay, as she interviews Todd Harrison.  Todd used to write for's Realmoney and now blogs over at Minyanville.
  • Boy, try to call a top in THIS market.  What a waste of time!  Advancers leading decliners today.
  • Kelly Hu currently resides in Brentwood, Los Angeles, California where she is co-owner of a restaurant, "Basic Bites".  (Yahoo map - Warning, sounds like healthy food...)
