50th anniversary ideas?

Posted 04-26-2009 at 09:53 PM by Discoteque

Wow. Just "yesterday" I was with my family celebrating my grandparents' 50th anniversary, and now...my folks' 50th wedding anniversary is coming up in June!

We "kids" (aka the grown up kids that is) are trying to pull together...something...for them for their special day.

But what does one do for their parents' 50th??? We don't come from money, so we can't give them a cruise or a trip to Europe or whatever. My only sibling who has money...

The honeymoon has definitely worn off

Posted 04-22-2009 at 10:17 PM by Discoteque

LOL!

Yeah, it's taken less than 2 months, what up???

Actually I love my office, love the people, and even enjoy the work, but omg, for such a small office, there's SO MUCH OF IT. I'm already putting in OT quite a bit (good for my pocketbook, but still), but mostly my days are made up of lots and lots of small projects and myriad 'stuff.' I feel like I'm never on a project enough to complete anything on time, and much of my time is spent doing travel (we don't use...

I know exactly how she feels

Posted 04-14-2009 at 10:00 PM by Discoteque

So one of my best friends lost her job today, and she's completely freaked out over it. She's really taking it hard, and very personally (not good).

Honey, BEEN THERE, DONE THAT, GOT THE T-SHIRT.

I had funds to fall back on, and actually enjoyed my "time off," but my friend has NO money to fall back on, no savings, used up her 401K, and if she's lucky, she may only get 2 weeks severance. The industry she's in falls into the category of being...

Taxes...and tea parties!

Posted 04-14-2009 at 09:40 PM by Discoteque

This year, I'm so lazy, I filed an extension. I had to pay a whopping $35 in this year (which may or may not be accurate, since some of my tax paperwork seems to be missing) I used that Taxact app which helped me get it in under the wire, sheesh. It's not like I have a house or a business or I'm even married...I usually to a 1040 or even a 1040EZ if I can help it, but the mere thought of really sitting down and getting them done...meh.

At least taxes are out of the...

BLARGH...i got a speeding ticket!

Posted 04-08-2009 at 07:35 PM by Discoteque



$170.

Did the cop go after the woman in front of me WHO WAS SPEEDING? No, of course not. He picked me.

And for some reason, I know not why, I become little Miss Surly in these situations...and to my own detriment, I probably gave a little more "lip" than was necessary. I wish I could be one of those women who can cry, or show cleavage or whatever, but I'm not. Instead,...
