I'm about to hit my one year anniversary at Microsoft. As a result, some stock options are about to vest. Oooh! Stock options! Shades of the go go 1990s!

Unfortunately, at today's stock price, my options are worth a grand total of $18.75. Subtract taxes due and it's something closer to $12.50. Wow! $12.50!

Looks like I'll be buying one bottle of Bonny Doon Clos de Gilroy or something along those lines. That's a little less impressive than buying a new Passat with the first year's options from Netscape. Ah well, I'm still lucky to have a job at all in this crap economy. Still, if I had a choice, I'd rather have more money than less.
