Bloomberg reports that the Fabulous Fab has agreed to testify at a Senate hearing on the Hill next week. He'll do so alongside Lloyd Blankfein, which *could* be awkward! What else will happen? Who the hell knows but here's a few items for the wish list:

* He refers to himself in the third person, by his nickname

* Childhood stories about his days in France

* Interrupts Lloyd and gets a backhand to the face (and vice versa)



That's Dr. Fab Tourre To You!

Goldman Sachs's former resident of fabulousness is going back to school. The Securities and Exchange Commission alleged in a 2010 complaint that Goldman Sachs and Fabrice Tourre, 33, who is on unpaid leave, defrauded investors in a collateralized debt obligation known as Abacus 2007-AC1. The regulator identified Tourre as a “resident of Kigali, Rwanda,” in court papers filed March 21 in Manhattan federal court. Tourre had been in the African nation’s capital working for a non-governmental organization before beginning his studies at the University of Chicago, according to a person familiar with his travels who declined to be identified because the matter isn’t public. “Tourre is a U.S. resident studying for a Ph.D. in economics at the University of Chicago,” his lawyer, Pamela Rogers Chepiga, said in a statement March 21. Steve Koppes, a university spokesman, said Tourre has been enrolled in the program since September. [Bloomberg]
