So, I was looking forward to a big refund...I claimed no exemptions at my new companies because switching jobs can do funny things to your witholding, and I had my first full year of interest payments on the house to cut down my taxable income.

Just did my taxes.

Gr.

I didn't get much, but at least I don't owe anything, I guess. My strategy worked...I just wish it had worked better!

*conciliatory fistbump*

We are looking at having to amend 2 or 3 years of taxes for Diane and I in a very painful way due to recent changes, and 2012 taxes look like they are going to be vicious for us. This could cost us several thousand dollars. :(

And now back to homework. I have lots, especially since I don't want to leave much to do over the weekend since my birthday is on Saturday and I'm planning to do fun stuff on my birthday instead. :)

I look forward to the anniversary of your birth.

I'm planning to get all dolled up and going to dinner somewhere fancy. There are just too few excuses in life to get all dressed up. At least for grown-ups. But it's not like it got less fun! :)

I'll try to remember to post pics after. The last pics I put up here I was about twenty pounds heavier and had significantly darker hair than now.

I think I found those 20 pounds youklost. Totally blaming it on late nights with ch.

It just makes you more of an honorary bear. ;)

I'm sorry to hear that, Tordek! Hopefully you'll find something awesome really soon. There's no place where it's awesome to be let go, but Houston's one of the less horrible ones.

Hang in there!

Yes - fortunately, the Houston job market is quite active. My first desire is to stay here. However, I'll relocate if I must. Can't be as choosy in my current situation. After all, I have a subscription needs that must be met.

Don't you already live in Texas?

(I might just be confused by the beer and pain.)

You aren't confused, I do live in Texas near Houston. If all goes well in my search, I hope I get to stay here.

Good morning FAWTLY Folk! A very windy morning here in Philthadelphia. Started last night with the 20-30 mph winds. And rain. Making the morning commute a beeyotch.

Who knows? If things go south with the DoD in the next year or so, I could be joining you folks down there.

Another enjoyable episode of Supernatural last night. Time travel episodes are always cool. And it looks like next week's episode is going back to the traditional monster of he week format - their going to do a Golem! And Nazis!

Urgh! If my wife were driving any slower, we'd be going back in time.

The radio guy just announced they'd be doing a show tomorrow at the pub by my buddy's house. Cool!

Huzzah! The clouds are moving out! No more rain for now!

Yesterday I sat on a car where the owner had put flutes on the AC, so when he turned it up, the whole thing sounded like some kind of portable organ. By playing with the balance and strength, he could almost make something rather nice.

Though I have to wonder how maddening it gets when you're on a 6-hour trip with that thing on.

Oh, and the owner's name was Lumiere and sported a crazy moustache. I felt like in a Terry Gilliam movie.


That's pretty trippy. I'm so bored at work, I would even look forward to a fire emergency and running the hell outta here.

I'm glad Supernatural gets good again. We are in the first third of season 6 on Netflix and the writing has definitely taken a turn for the worse. We've really enjoyed the series through the first 5 seasons.

Storms coming here soon. Love thunderstorms. But this is not the season for them.

Alright, time to close Paizo and get some work done. HOPEFULLY last day of mandatory overtime. Yay!

60 mph winds on Long Island last night. It woke me up from a sound sleep at 4am. With the wind and rain lashing against my windows, it was like a deafening roar for about 2 hours.

Mrgh. Now I'm tired.

Morning, all. What did I miss?

Yeah, we are having high winds in the UK too. Meant it took an age to turn the heater on last night. But fortunately didn't disturb my rest.

Sorry to hear that you had a bad night. Hands out :tea:

Wind is here as well. Not very strong but noticeable. Half of the snow melted by now leaving sandy mud on streets.

The guy who called me a piece of s#*! is hurling abuse at everybody else involved, too. Start with that.

In finance? Bah, do whatever you feel like. If there is a problem, another finance company will decide whether you did wrong. =)


I dislike Thursdays so much class and not enoughh time in libarary.

Skipping class today to go to a doctor appointment. I think I have an ear infection. :(
Well, at least I'm not missing much. Today's class was just a review anyways.


Going for a nap.

I loved the first 5 seasons. The story was tight and well done. Makes sense, since the creator intended for the show to end with season 5 - he had his story and that was it.

Season 6 was meh. Season 7 was marginally better in that it had a single major storyline with major new villains. Some parts were a bit silly. Season 8 has been iffy - seems to be working to an overarching story, but they keep throwing some weird s@~* in. Last night's episode was cool, but it came out of nowhere and may be used for setting up future seasons.

Each of the three past seasons have also had some really good stand alone episodes, so that's always something I enjoy.

Still more talk of furloughs here at work if the budget problems aren't fixed. If it happens, they're talking 22 days per person, but they'll do it one day per week for 22 weeks to try and minimize the impact.

I suppose I could deal with 22 three day weekends.

Had my mid-year performance review today. Not sure why it wasn't actually at the mid-year (fiscal or calander), but I find it's better sometimes to not know the answer.

Scarab Sages

Mmmmm.....jambalaya.

It's nice and sunny here in Philly now. But it's getting colder again. And we might have a bit of snow tomorrow morning.

Silver Crusade

Sorry to hear of the furlough possibility, AZ. I hope the resolution is not too painful.

I have a feeling that, no matter what, we're at least looking at some severe DoD budget cuts. Whether or not furloughs are a part of that, who knows....?

My big worry is that the wife and I are going to get bent over on taxes this year. When you throw the possibility of furlough in, plus other considerations, it means a rough year ahead. We may have to forgo some of the plans we had....
