February 2006

I was so excited to get my W-2 earlier than expected that I did my taxes the first Sunday of my vacation. I did them on January 20.

I got my refund today.

This pleases me to no end whatsoever. I am very excited.

The thing is, yes, the temporary satiation of my greed is part of what excites me. Yes. That is true. But a big part of what excites me is that I was so responsible, that I have in fact gotten in the habit of doing my taxes by the end of January.

I am a big nerd. But today I am also a big nerd with (for today, anyway) a big wallet.

Is this what had Bush, er, I mean, Dear Leader so worked up about human-animal (manimal to those in the scene) hybrids?

It’s worth noting, because I haven’t yet worked out a good color for links and also because it is so fun to say it: by “this” I mean “that the characters depicted on DHS’s own ‘readiness’ page for kids are in fact human-animal hybrids.”

You know that shrill whinnying you hear in the distance? That’s me laughing my ass off at this.

Or is it…? After all, it could be a maniacal manimal!
