Doris Day Stocks

One of my new favorite blogs out there, Are You Familiar?, mentioned a band a week or so ago that got my attention. Their name caught my attention for all the wrong reasons. I was trying to figure out why he was talking about Doris Day. Were they some of his favorite songs by her? Did she have a new album coming out? My mom raised me watching Doris Day movies and you may have noticed my love for her on my Christmas song list.
Anyway I’m a dork and Doris Day is the name of a Canadian band froma small town near Ontario. their songs are great and poppy, and remind me a ton of Broken Social Scene (who, come to think of, I’ve just started listening to;I thought You Forgot it in the People was forgettable background music and like their self-titled album a lot better). So you should check out their songs because they’re great. Maybe they’ll get some attention, maybe they won’t.

Also, can anyone tell me what the heck BlogShares is all about? A fake stock market for blogs? Why? Apparently someone put my blog on there or something. So weird. But it’s worth $38, 490.36. Can I get some of that? I guess it’s all just based on popularity. Kinda fun to see how much people are worth. The descriptions are funny:

Dreams of Horses was the subject of much speculation when analysts at several firms were heard to be very positive about it’s recent performance. It’s share price rose from B$2,245.30 to B$3,592.48. Much of the hype was said to originate from Amir whose Oxford Dictionary (artefact) was said to be involved.

Amir declined to comment on the recent speculation.

Im not really sure how they put you on there because i found this last month and my two small blogs are on there so i posted about it. Ohh And you can thank me for the links to your site which i believe is how part of the valuation of your blog works, but i might be wrong.

Mine isnt worth as much as yours, but 80% of my stocks are bought… so if I wanted to trade into my own blog, I would be the minority holder.
