happy day of naughty snogging...

or something...

i love that time of year when tax returns and paychecks converge in my bank account. suddenly i have a surplass of cash and my happy little hands rub together with excitement deciding what little treat or two i'll buy myself. a few weeks ago i was discussing the possibilities with rach, asking her if i should get that fancy new lens or pay down credit cards. oh wise sage... rach quietly urged me to pay my bills. the jerk. the lovely jerk. so instead of being stupid, i paid down a very substantial chunk of bills... and then managed to buy only a little treat (or two) in this delicious little number:



and a remote timer for my camera. aka i spent not very much money at all, managed to spoil myself a little bit, AND was smart and took care of some actual life business. yay me.

happy day for snogging. i'm going to go see definitely, maybe with my friend john tonight. maybe we'll hold hands, just to celebrate the day.

xoxoxox carry on lovers.

I used my tax return to pay credit card bills last year. It was soooo worth it. This year, it's all going into my money market account where it can grow while I decide what to do with it.

I get 5 G's this year, which is going to summer camp, a tattoo for the honey and a camera for me. The rest goes into savings.

Bo-ring.

i find it impressive when anyone gets their taxes done two months in advance. enjoy the delicious little number (and that remote!) and any other treats you treat yourself to.

how much money did you get back? yeesh, when i worked in publishing, my returns were like $400. if that. congrats! i've yet to look through the pile of 1099-MISCs on my desk. oh, the life of a freelancer...

karen... no need to brag about 5grand... 5 grand is never boring, so shut your face.

arija... 900, but also a few hundred for the sale of my old camera. so it seems like more. :)

Not bragging. Remember...you have to be dirt poor to qualify for that kind of refund in the first place.

I'd rather be making more $$, but I'll take it however I can get it.
