I don't know what my problem is, but I've wanted a tattoo for over 3 years, but have always found some excuse to not get it.
I fell in love with this design when my life started getting chaotic. I see this as "within chaos, there becomes order." After my divorce, and especially after my move, this idea became more and more meaningful to me. Life around me is getting chaotic, and I will always try to keep my center calm.
|Purchased in 2008. This year,|
it WILL end up on me.
I'm kind of in a grumpy mood today, because I still need to finish my taxes for this year. I normally don't put them off this late, but here it is, April 10. I file electronically, and have been doing my own taxes since my first job. Now I do my girl's taxes as well as my own, because she hates it. Hers are done and filed. Mine, not so much.
Part of that is because of my ex. We purchased a home together right before the split, and she collected a first-time homebuyer's credit for it. My ssn was linked to that purchase, so when it came time to repay some of that credit (*cough* now...) the tax man reminded me. I went to file, and was instantly denied. "Where's our money? Remember that home you purchased in 2008? Remember that credit? It was a loan. Time to pay some of it back..."
It took me a while on how to do it, but I figured out how to put on my tax forms that I shouldn't have to pay any of it back. Now, let's see if they agree. *gulp*
For a lighter side, I want to present this video. It was passed to me by a Facebook friend, and I instantly fell in love with it.
Firstly, name 3 presidents who have boogied on National Television. You got Obie here, and Bill Clinton... #3? Anyone? I think it's admirable to come on TV and show a lighter side. Show you're human. Even if you're a horrible dancer. (Are we sure he's black? Dude's got NO rhythm... oh wait, that was yesterday's post...)
Secondly, the Rickroll is SOOOO 2 years ago. Time for it to be revamped, and I nominate this.
Lastly, with congress finally putting a budget together, and us avoiding a MAJOR government shutdown, this video seems relevant. I bet the Prez is dancing in the oval office, glad that angry mobs with torches & pitchforks aren't beating down the whitehouse door. After all, if anything goes wrong in this country, it's HIS fault, right? (just in case you can't feel the sarcasm, let me point it out)
Anyway, happy Sunday. If you need me, I'll be finishing up my taxes.
