Hi everyone,

So, when I was presenting my ideas to our CFO (to convince him to give me the money) and to our head of analysts, they asked for a simple take-away, a quick summary of what I planned to do. And this is what I came up with.

Messed-Up Expectations Laughingly Leading to Enticing Returns.*

*Merely a coincidence. :-P

I've described, at least in part (http://boards.fool.com/a-bit-more-on-mue-28861271.aspx), what I mean by Messed-Up Expectations.

Laughingly -- each person at TMF has a core value. Mine is "Laugh your way through life." Look on the bright side, try to see the joke or at least the humor in any situation, enjoy yourself even when times are tough. Yes, life can be serious (how well I know that!), but on the whole, it's a good thing to experience. The alternative is so much worse.

Leading to Enticing Returns -- not a promise, but an expectation.

Cheers,
Jim

P.S. I'll explain the joke if I have to, but I hope everyone gets it. :-)
