The Single Scoop
Being Single Quote of the Day: “If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married.” – Katharine Hepburn
Wuss’up This Week: Not much – a very quiet week for economic reports being released. Tomorrow at 7:30 AM CST we will receive the Weekly Jobless Claims, which will hopefully follow in the footsteps of the positive report that came out last Friday. As usual, the better this report the worse rates get and the worse this report the better rates will get. Also on Thursday, we have my haircut which happens every 17 days. A positive cut leads to lower rates.
Interest Rate Update: Rates continue to hover in the high 4s/low 5s for a 30-year fixed, and ARMS are about a point lower. As usual, rates vary based on type of home, equity in the home, credit score, and the success of Charlie Sheen’s World Tour.
Being Single Quote of the Day 2: “Hugh Hefner got engaged to a 24-year-old. He’s 84. That’s 60 years – an entire old person in between them. It gives me hope though because I’m single. I want to get married – maybe I haven’t met the right girl because she hasn’t been born yet.” – Jon Fisch (comedian)
Timeout for Trivia: Congrats to all of you who correctly guessed Paul Reiser as last week’s answer. Want to be entered into a drawing to win a Power Ranger Halloween costume? Simply email me the answer to this week’s “Who Am I?” question. Good luck: “On Saturday I turn 57. Isn’t it crazy that Goose and Mav would sing ‘Great Balls of Fire’ to my future wife even though I sang that song a lot better? You want even more crazy: check out my brother.”
