Personal Update & New (Satirical) Topics in Retirement Planning

Due to the current market conditions (Aside to new readers - I work as a marketer for a Fortune 500 financial services firm), I’ve been putting in some pretty long days at the office over the couple of weeks.  That hasn’t left much time for wedding planning or blogging.

This is what I’ve been up to lately - in 300 words or less:

Wedding

Evidently, I’m getting married in two weeks. 

Matt and I still have a lot to do before we say “I do”.  This weekend we’ll be finalizing the menu, printing our programs, putting together the playlist for cocktail hour, and cleaning (the combination of the afore mentioned long work days and the stream of wedding-related package deliveries has left my house in ruins - my dining room is like an obstacle course).

And if a bailout deal is hammered out over the weekend, I’ll also be spending even more time at the office. 

Work

Thanks to recent market volatility, many workers between the ages of 60-65 who planned on retiring in 2008 or 2009 are reconsidering.  Earlier this week, I was in a brainstorming session for a marketing piece on delaying retirement.  Here’s a list of some of the titles we decided against:

Why Working Until Age 98 Isn’t So Bad”

“Second Careers for Seniors”

Headlines considered on the topic of stretching retirement savings:

“How to Guilt Your Children into Asking You to Move In With Them”

“The Art of Panhandling in Retirement”

“Supplementing Your Retirement Income Through Roadside Recycling Programs”

We also discussed the social correctness of lobbying against the development of pharmaceuticals and advances in medical technology intended to increase longevity.

Maybe you need to be in the industry to find that last bit funny, but I thought it was hilarious (and a little sad) at the time.  

Have a satirical market- or retirement-related article idea?  Include it in the comments and I’ll share it with my colleagues!

Stumble it!
