Boom, Boom, Boom. Another one bites the dust. Boom. Boom. Boom.

I left my computer for about half an hour. As I was heading back to my office, I came back and heard a low bass sound. I thought someone had turned up their car stereo outside. As I drew closer to the office. I could tell it was coming from inside the house. My computer had gone to the "blue screen of death" and the speakers were "Boom. Boom. Boom." very loudly and quite rhythmically. Same heavy rock rhythm as "Another one bites the dust." Luckily that wasn't the tune it was playing and it came back up after a dramatic power-down.

Why didn't you tell me this would happen??

Oh, sure, I received several emails and comments about the white eyebrow hair post. Commiseration and condolences both. But no one mentioned that THIS would happen. A white eyelash?? THE HORROR! It's not as if the eyelash is a quiet little whispy one. OH, no, of course not. It's proud and long. Like a white flag screaming, "I surrender to ye, dear impending death." Aging is major suckitude, I tell ya.

Cinnfully Crunchy

I just picked up a bag of Pringles Select Cinnamon Sweet Potato chips. Yum. But then I like cinnamon and crunchy together. It's kind of like the outer part of fried ice cream like the serve in Mexican restaurants only crispier! Not a lot of sweet potato flavor, but if'n you like cinnamon, Yum. Yum. Yum! I can definitely see dippin' into some ice cream with these or maybe a scoop on top of a bunch of 'em. Yum! Did I say that yet? :-)

Time for a Little Tax Fun!

I've spent the last 5 or so hours finishing up my 2006 taxes. Woohoo! I'm happy to say they're done and none-to-soon. I do have until Monday, so I'm not a ~complete~ procrastinator. Anyway, here's a couple of photos of my tax forms. For those of you who are either 1. not in Utah or 2. using a printer that understands PDF english, these may be foreign to you.

First up my Form 1040 as interpreted by my computer. I'm not sure, but this *may* qualify me for a foreign tax credit.

Finally, to help you see the happy light at the end of the tunnel. Straight from the Utah tax form where the red-state's tax commission is obviously disobeying the LDS "word of wisdom" by smokin' some weed:

I really wish their digital version used moving GIFs with a smiley yellow face with arms "wooo-hoooing" in the air to punctuate the fact that a refund is on the way!!! There's always hope for next year.
