Taxes
Well, real life sucks all of a sudden.
All those people that hate me for my Dad paying my student loans can bite me when they do their taxes.

Slept OK last night. Have a headache today. Again. Numerous reasons likely.
Today, I hate money and the inevitable change forthcoming.

McGee roundtable was kind of dull last night.

I was spoiled last year because I was a student half the year and still dependent. Taxes are very, very light in that situation. Not so tryue now. At least I don't have to pay but I was hoping to lessen some of my debt with a nice refund.

Well if you want to drown your troubles you can come by the restaurant some time and I'll get you a discount. We've got a dozen beers and fourteen different kinds of rum, plus a number of really tasty mixed drinks (chocolate-cherry martini anyone?) so it can be a very fun drowning. I'm on til 8 tonight and til 7 tomorrow.

Hey, that's right across from us.

The food is delicious. Extremely tender meat from slow-cooking, very tasty rice and beans. We should have some good specials too.

I already have a 401k. I give it 6% of my income every month.

What you should do is start citing your recent promotion as a dramatic increase in your personal stress level. Then start buying things for the purpose of relieving said stress level. Then write those things off.

I suggest the first thing you buy is a monkey. Because monkeys always relieve stress. Especially when they're smoking a cigar and playing cards. I can train it for you. You can write that off too.

PS - There's still no way you're going to pay more in taxes over the next twenty years than I'll pay combined taxes and student loans.

Talk to your employer now and have them increase your federal and state contributions in advance of your raise. You should know what tax bracked you're moving into... Prepare now. That's what I did and I'm getting a pretty nice refund.

Power to the People!

Right on.

I despise income tax withholding, especially in a world where it's so easy to electronically manage money.

Though, on the flip side, the conversation with HR where the lady says "Wait, you want me to do what?...You...you know you're going to have to pay taxes right?...Okay, but I've never had anyone ask for that before." I always really funny
