I took my apartment apart last night, searching for my receipts in preparation for Tax Guy. I know, I know - I should have a special place for these receipts. I did - on top of my table, in a special pile. But over time, those piles got moved to other places.
It's okay - I'm only missing one substantial one, and I'm pretty sure I know where it is. I'll be going to the office of Tax Guy today to pick up the 10-99 forms for the band work, so I'll probably make my appointment to do my taxes when I get there.

And, once again, I point to this essay that talks about what the rich truly pay in income taxes.

Remember, Oprah got her own TV network?
Well, here's Letterman's Top 10 new shows on the OWN:
Wow...you really CAN get anything at Amazon.com.
Not that I'd actually BUY any of those things. But STILL...
Well, I have a buncha shit-to-dos.
And then, the gig.
Be seeing you.
