Default Ask Uncle Nakdude

Our club has its own Ouija-board toting, descended-from-gypsies soothsayer. Post up here to have your near future predicted for 2010!

I am sure Uncle Nakdude Worek will swing by, swirl some tea leaves, and reveal all for you.

Oh Mighty UNW, I kinda want to go back to school and start on a second career. The program's deadline for registration is Jan 15th. I'm afraid that my kidney might come during one of the the two mandatory residential intensives in June and July. I have to pay up front. Should I go ahead and register/pay?

Oh Mighty UNW-
Should I sell my house at likely market lows or try to keep it?

I'm only a cousin to UNW... but in the spirit of chat I say if you're staying within the same market then go ahead and sell it- as you're buying back into the same market, so sell low, buy low. Your only bad move would be to sell in a depressed market and buy into an inflated one, meaning sell low buy high. The best move obviously is sell high buy low, but I don't see you moving to Detroit..

Keepest thy abode, especially thy garage. Take not a loss now when the future holds higher returns.

Also: remember to breathe.

This question strains my powers of space and time. The Ancient One advises: speakest to the program administrators (not the flunkies, but the leaders) and explain your predicament. You will be able to gauge their wisdom based on their response, and evaluate the situation mo' better.

In my inventory, I have a half dozen spare livers but no kidneys. My apologies. My best wishes for your full recovery and health.

Fair enough. Can you tell me where I left my 10mm flare nut wrench?

I would enroll because sitting out for the what-ifs in life will eventually leave you on the sidelines all the time. Sure there's a risk of missing the term but so what? If that happens it's because you are getting a new kidney and that's more than reason enough to be positive. What if the kidney does not come through? Then you are still waiting for it AND another semester behind on the future.

Thou speakest with wisdom, David-In-Denver. Didst thou study in the wind caves of Shalomar with the Druids of Sorrow?
