If I was getting married right now

I would be wearing this J.Crew Wedding Gown

I'd be marrying this man in this suit

My brides maids would be wearing these dresses

I'd be getting married in this location

And then me and Prince Charming up there in the sexy suit would ride off into the sunset on a stallion named Alfred.

This is what I'm doing right now

p. 87 1. BEP = FC / CM %
#24 CM% = FC / BEP
CM % = 600,000/1,500,000 = 40%

2. CM% = SPu - VCu/Sp
.40 = SP - $15/SP SP .40 = SP - $15 = 15/6 = 2.5

3. Budget - breakeven = MOS
$1,500,000 / 25 60,000 units
80,000 units
MOS 20,000 units
p.87 Operating Leverage
#25 $500Q - $350Q = 5,000
1) $150Q = 5,000
A) Q = 34 Carpets
B) Q = 0
2) $100Q
$150Q - $5,000 = $100Q
$50Q = $5,000
Q = 100
46) 150,000 : 50,000
p.94 CM =(3*$6) + (1*$12) = $30 3:01
Breakeven point $1,200,000 / $30= 40000= 160,000
rev - vc - fc = 0 (OI)
[$20 (3Q) + $50Q] - [$14(3Q) - $18Q] - 1,200,000 = 0
$30Q = 1,200,000
Q= 40,000
3Q= 120,000

STD R - VC - FC = 0
1,200,000/$6 per unit = 200,000 units

DELUX $30 - $18 = $12 per unit
$1,200,000/$12 per unit = 100,000 units
OI = Revenues - [variable cost] - FC

Praise the Lord for Cost Accounting.

In other news, the president is brainwashing the youth of our nation.
"( – Prior to his nationally broadcast speech to students on Tuesday, President Barack Obama made a pitch for health care reform in a discussion with 40 freshmen at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va.

The president traveled to Wakefield High to give a speech on education reform. The speech was posted in advance on the White House Web site to quell fears that the president intended to plug his political agenda to impressionable minds."

LOLZ. I don't care that the speech was posted prior. These kids don't pay frikin taxes.

And finally, I saw (500) Days of Summer with Marie, Maddi, and DoJo and it was awesome. Everyone should see it. It's probably the most creative movie in a long, long time. Thank you Marc Webb... not that I really know who that is except from this movie.

Runnin Wild

I heard this Brandon Heath song for the first time today. It reminded me of the romance of this life. We live for more than a bunch of mundane coincidences.

She wasn't looking for an answer to an ordinary prayer
She just liked to be around him
She liked knowing he was there
She saw something no one else could see
Way beyond his gentle eyes
And it was more than just a moment
When she finally realized

That she can feel his arms around her
Even when he's not around
And it's worth her while
To see him smile
Her heart is running wild for him

He wasn't looking for a reason
A certain time a perfect place
He just liked to be around her
And he loved the beauty of her face
And he knew something no one else could know about
A mystery that he will never tell
When she whispers softly to him
It's a voice he knows so well

And he can talk to her for hours
And still have so much more to say
And if you asked him now
I bet he'd tell you how
His heart is running wild for her

Now they stand together before the father and the son
Two hearts longing for each other are beating now as one

And you can almost hear the angels
You know their singing from above
About the beauty of a Father's love
His heart is running wild for them
All for them

I guess it's really just a love song but for some reason today it really spoke to me. Either life is one short-coming after another or it's a greatly opposed romance. It would appear to me that we're in a story that takes our most brave, whole hearts. Moseying through life is not an option. There's too much at stake. Besides, what's not to love about love and romance? It's probably the truest thing about us. We love to love.

"Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot wash it away."

I guess that's all I have to say.
