Hello Friday the 13th.
The Taxman Cometh
Tonight I will complete my taxes. Writing the necessary checks is going to hurt like a motherfucker. Expect rants about government wastes of money in the future. 🙂
I will be happy to have this burden off my “To Do” list however.
Along with purging my bank account I will also be undertaking another task which is long overdue — Spring Purging (that’s the level above Cleaning). Come Monday I hope to report that I am living in a tidy house with less crap, and that I am in possession of my first tax deduction for 2007 – a receipt from a charitable organization.
In addition to drinking we played a game of “Guess Information About Someone” about a waitress-trainee that caught my eye. Many thanks to our waitress Kim for playing along and giving us the answers to our questions.
I Was Nearly Singing The Blues
When I was first planning trips for this year one city popped into my mind for the first time, Memphis Tennessee. I’ve never been to Memphis, and not being a humongous Elvis fan have not been drawn to Memphis like a moth to a light bulb. However, I have heard interesting things about Memphis so I’ve decided I want to make a trip.
Yesterday a weekend travel deal to Memphis popped into my email and I thought about taking them up on it for a second. I then realized all of the crap I need to do around here this weekend and put the idea of Memphis on the back burner — or until another deal is delivered unto me.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – blah
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing The View — “Wasted Little DJ’s”
Website Of The Day – Check out The Thrift Shopper to find thrift stores near you. Who knows, you might be able to buy some of the crap I am giving away this weekend really cheap.
