I sense a strange disturbance in the schwartz, as though the undead, the walking wounded, and a few of the badly-disturbed living have begun shambling toward a unified goal. Join the horde or quiver in fear, it’s up to you.

I put off doing taxes this year, so I dedicated this weekend to doing them. I use Turbo Tax, and because of my rental properties I want to continue to use them since they save the history. But I couldn’t log in, I’d click the button and nothing would happen. Finally I found another page I could use to log in so now I get to spend the rest of the night filling everything in.

So I didn’t even start them and it’s already frustrating.

Taxes should just be an equation where you plug in your income, subtract $20k(or $40k for couples), and then plug it into the table for the tax rate. ($20k deduction since you shouldn’t have to pay taxes on the money needed for basic living expenses).

Took me ten minutes. Pen and paper.
Used a calculator but didn’t need to.

I am more than convinced that I keep this one pizza joint in business.

There’s a chinese place I go to a lot, and one time they must have been busy because the lady picked up the phone, told me what my order was, then hung up on me after I confirmed.

I am on a first name basis with a couple of the drivers. Hey when you have no minimum plus zero delivery charges, you bet your ass I am ordering. Oh and the food is amazing.

I don’t order the same thing every time so I am not that obvious but still.

Well ain’t that somethin, Woods won The Masters. Fellas, that’s about as good as sports get. Only one thing would be a topper. 🙂

On the upside, I’m off to a good start this week. Mostly got myself turned around, got in some good practice on redeveloping my social skills, caught up on a couple chores. Still up against it in some ways, but you make better progress by building on successes than you do by avoiding failures. So go, me.

You should Prolly wear Clothes to those Games … : )

Unpopular opinion time for BRAG “at the K” today, in which I took a look at the last 7 games. Summarized, the bullpen had three games they couldn’t win, the offense couldn’t overcome the starters’ deficits. One that’s on them (Mariners game 4), and one that’s on them, but because the starter didn’t get beyond the 3rd inning. During the three wins, the pen’s only responsible for 3 of the 9 runs the Indians scored. The other 6 runs, including 5 today, are against the starters.

Now, do they have problems? Sure, but the Mariners were an offensive juggernaut coming into it, ain’t no wonder they got knocked around, so maybe not the best set of games to evaluate them on – and you can only argue that they actually lost two, at most. Giving up a bunch of runs matters less than the fact that the starters couldn’t score enough to win against the /starter’s/ runs given up in 3 of those games.

“the *hitters couldn’t score enough to win”. Prolly an unnecessary correction, but it’d bug me if I didn’t make it.

you should see someone about this

About being bothered by spelling/writing errors that I know exist until I make a correction, or my tendency to hold unpopular opinions? Leaving aside that I’d have to stop being me entirely to alter either, I have other things with higher priorities to deal with.

I was rooting for Tiger, Celtics, Trail Blazers, and of course Royals today, and so far I’m 4/4. The last 2 NBA games I’m pretty indifferent towards, although I guess I want Detroit to win since I stupidly put money on Boston to win the East.

And with Griffin out I’m pretty sure the Bucks are going to roll over Detroit.
