Rainy Day Fund

I'm not sure if I like the idea of a "rainy day fund". I'd like to think that I'm on top of my finances enough so that I've already taken into account possible deviations from the norm. I like to build the possibility of rainy days straight in to my financial planning.

Instead, I think I'll start an "AWESOME day fund". That's right. Maybe I'll have a really AWESOME day and I'll want to celebrate. Then I'll go and get some money out of the AWESOME day fund. And since the AWESOME day fund is always optional (unlike the rainy day which may some day become necessary), it can be put into investments aggressively. That way, when I have a good day on the stock market, it'll be an AWESOME day, which will not only be AWESOME, but will increase the amount in my AWESOME fund. AWESOME!

We apologize for the preceding stupidity. --The Management
