Well, it must be nice.

 

Tax time is upon us, and like every other year…. we pay.

And pay.

And pay.

And pay.

It’s bad enough the government swallows half our paycheck during the year..

But every April?

 

 

They want more. **

So I wait until April 14th to file.

I’m petty that way.

Tax laws have changed this year, and no… I’m not going to get political.

But the instructions on the payment voucher did make me laugh.

No checks of $100 million or more accepted?

Damn.

Now I’m going to have to get cash.

As if.

At first I thought, well… it must be nice to be able to write a check like that.

Yeah.

If you can write a check like that?

Chances are you won’t have to.

 

 

And that pretty much sums up our tax collection system.

Watch Neil Gaiman’s American Gods on Starz.

It’s mind bending, trippy and totally rocks!

 

 

It’s that time again…

Let’s begin.

1.  John Quincy Adams went skinny dipping in the Potomac on his 79th birthday.

If this mental image has to be stuck in my head?

I want it to be stuck in yours as well.

 

2.  After eating, the common housefly regurgitates it’s food and eats it again.

Because sometimes, pizza is just that good.

3.  Charlie Brown’s father is a barber.

Admit it, you never knew that.

You’re welcome.

4.  A barnacle has the largest penis of any other animal in relation to it’s size.

Oddly enough, this is a question that’s rarely asked in trivia games.

And Lord knows, I’ve been waiting to dazzle crowds with my barnacle member dimension knowledge for years.

5.   There’s a town in Texas called Ding Dong.

Truly, there is.

It’s north of Austin.

And I have a question for Texas bloggers…

WTH?

I’m all for being proud of your home town, but….

Damn.

 

 

 

A little catch up…

Since it took me a month and a half to post vacation pics, it’s time to get you back up to speed on the dreadfully boring fascinating tidbits that are my life.

You may have heard the government had a shut down during our trip. Luckily this caused us no financial hardships, but it did mean the husband’s paychecks were delayed. And being the federal government, you know they had to make something simple ridiculously difficult.

The husband gets paid the same amount every 2 weeks. Same amount of pay, same amount of deductions. You would think they could just deposit the 2 missing paychecks.

But no.

Whaaaat?

It shouldn’t surprise you that as of today, his pay is still hosed up.

And yeah.

You did.

The back yard deer are hungry.

And so are the turkeys.

We love the deer. The turkeys? Not so much.

They’re comical… but they poop. A lot.

Enough said.

Valentines Day came and went…

IMG_E4081

The husband sent me roses.

And I gave him a framed shot of the night sky from the exact location of our wedding day.

aww-you-guys

I know.

We’re so special it hurts.

Of course the really wonderful thing about Valentines Day is the day after….

When chocolate is half price!

That’s the definition of true love right there.
