This and that and the other thing
I just filed our Federal Income Tax Return on Friday. We usually owe a couple of thousand dollars, but only owed a little over a thousand this time. If you're about to brag about how much your refund was, all I can say is that your refund was your money to begin with. I just kept my money longer than you did. And no, we've never had to pay a penalty. I was an accountant before I retired. I know the rules.
It's about 3 AM now. I just now filed our State Income Tax on-line. It's April 15, but this year I could have waited all the way to the 17th. So, I was early on it.
I don't mind paying taxes. Honestly. If we didn't pay taxes, then we wouldn't have libraries, street lights, and paved roads and all those wonderful things. We wouldn't be able to afford to invade other countries either. But that's a different rant.
I watched a Monk re-run tonight while stalling on finishing the State Income Tax. That Monk. He's so neurotic that he makes me look sane. Almost. I love that show.
I have just washed all the windows in the house, inside and out, and that's a big job. My fingernails are shot to hell because of it. Naturally if you wash the windows you also take down and wash the curtains or other WTs. That's window treatments for you WT dummies out there.
I was sick today, or actually it's tomorrow now, so that was yesterday that I was sick. Anyway, stop distracting me here...like I said, I was sick, so I was in bed on-and-off all day. Slept a lot. So now I'm wide awake at 3 AM, which means that tomorrow, or actually that's today now, I will be tired and sleepy, and so I will probably sleep a lot, which will mess up the day-after-tomorrow, which is actually just tomorrow, since today is the tomorrow I was talkin' 'bout before you started messin' with my mind here.
You just read the Meme that Puppytoes made me do to you. So, blame her, not me. She's sweet an' all, but I don't mind pickin' on sweet people. They don't usually hit back. NOTE TO PUPPYTOES: that was not a challenge.
The Meme was to tell 6 things you didn't need to know about me. I could go on and on, 'cause you don't need to know anything at all about me. And you don't even care, do you?
