it's 2pm already???

last night before i went to bed i couldn't stop thinking about crap - sometimes morbid things that i don't even want to name, but also sewing and how nice it would be to have faith in some sort of god when bad shit happens. hoping, as i do every day, that tonight i'll just fall into a deep sleep at the appropriate time and continue sleeping until time is up.

i ran into devolutionary on the metro today. that was neat. not so much for him because it means he's on this craptacular hideously early morning schedule. [edit] holy crap i forgot to document basically all of the weekend. oops. saturday i dyed eggs with tzel and co. and sunday we all had chinese brunch at house of peking choice and after that i visited with jack's family... all of which served to deliver me for a time from my sever funk of last week. i need to post pics of the eggs!! [/edit]

i need to complete Tax Forms. i am filled with loathing, not because i do not want to give my dues, but because i HATE DOING THEM and don't get why they can't just take out the goddamn right amount in the first damn place. loathe, loathe, loathe.

i need to figure out if i can create a costume between now and saturday in an appropriate musical theme. i had an idea but i have to get to a michael's, they have to have everything i need, and i have to SEW THINGS. just a few things, but things nonetheless. jack has so far refused my suggestions of a) letting me make him a Toto (as in the wiz) costume and b) duh, jesus christ superstar!

i need to mail a check to crafting_change. like crazy yesterday last week time frame. i am stating it publicly because shaming myself is a very effective motivator!

i need to get 2 tires. i need to drop off junk that is filling up the hatchback at the thrift store. i need to figure out what to do with those 2 excess halogen lamps. these things are probably not going to get done this week.

1) Ditto!!

2) C files on-line--he swears it's much less of a headache that way.

3) I'm hearing ya on the insomnia thing. Although in my own case, not waiting until the last minute to do my homework would probably help a lot!

hrblock.com

Seriously, I don't know how complicated yours are, but mine took like half an hour. Costs $60 to do fed + state at this late date, but might be worth the trouble!

Ah, the price of convenience.
When I did it through H&R Block, it cost me about $15 if I remember correctly.

But then I did mine at the beginning of Feb. ;)

Re: Ah, the price of convenience.
Yeah. I used to have a horrible fear of taxes because I made too damn much money and always owed, like, a lot. Now that I'm back in a reasonable bracket and either (a) get a rebate or at least (b) don't owe much, I have to do mine earlier! So it's cheaper! And I get my money faster!

I did H&R Block online last year and ended up screwed because you have to not forget to send a form with your signature. It seemed to only add a step to the process, to me. :(

Once you do your taxes more than one year with hrblock.com, they keep your numbers from year to year. On Federal, this means no papers to sign and send in, you have an electronic PIN signature thing. Alas, you do still have to send in a paper for State. To me, I cannot keep papers together for the life of me. HRblock keeps my returns for me! But, whatever works for you!

Are these the standing Torchie (or however they're spelled) lamps? Do theys still work?

Yeah, although I'm not sure that they are actually halogens. And they do work.
