My eyes are feeling very heavy, so I'm off to dreamland.

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the evening.

Good night!

9:00 and I'm the only one in the jernt?  I've heard of WUSSBURGERING, but this is WUSSBURGERING WITH CHEESE, baby, and it's sort of unseemly, don't you think?

I'm here. I'm about to wussburger, but I'm here right now. We had snow and cold and slush and muck today. At least that's better than a tornado.  They are cool to see, but not to be in.

Remember the brouhaha this past winter over the malware that Sony had included in a number of its CD releases?  The initial outcome of that mess was that Sony offered to replace the bad CDs with new copies that did not include the malware.  I had purchased Cyndi Lauper's The Body Acoustic and was able to exchange it in a relatively sweat-free process.

Well, the fun didn't stop there.  Evidently, there was a class action suit filed against Sony, and as a result I've been informed that I am entitled to either a $7.50 payment and a free album download or three free album downloads!

Now, that's what I call stickin' it to the corporation!

The library where I worked had only gotten three titles (fortunately) out of all the ones that had the XCP content.  One of the titles has gone out and was circulating.  One title had actually just been received in the building when we found out about all of this, so we were able to catch that.  The third title had been shipped, so when it arrived, we pulled it out of the shipment.  I had to call in the circulating copies and we were able to return these and get the replacement CDs pretty quickly.  Since we were a library, however, we weren't able to get any of the downloads.  We don't know if any patrons played the CDs in there computers, but if they did, they're basically on their own in regards to getting their computers fixed. ::)

Prepared nine returns and reviewed four returns today  (one of which was an errant and truant return from 2003, believe it or not - who the heck remembers what the tax law was in 2003!).

Found out something a wee bit esoteric which I'm sure many people here knew already.  Since most New Yorkers file their returns with the IRS's Massachusetts office, the deadline for New Yorkers to file with the IRS is April 18 rather than April 17, since in Mass. they celebrate Patriots Day on the 17th this year.  But people still have to get their New York State returns (or extensions) in by the 17th; the 18th is just the deadline for resdients of New York (among a few other states) to have their Federal returns filed with the IRS.

I'm tired.  And tired of moving.  That said, the new apartment is great.  That's all for now... too tired for more.

Good Evening!

Well, it's official.  My parents are moving to Richmond sometime in the next couple of months.  I was chatting with my brother, Jay, a little while ago.  He had called my parents earlier tonight just to check in with them.  They put the deposit down on the new house this past weekend - it's part of a new development that's still being built right now.  They probably can't take occupancy until September or October.  However, they plan to list their current house ASAP.  And if the house sells soon, then they'll go ahead and put everything in storage, and rent a small place in the interim.

I'm sort of surprised they're taking this plan of attack.  This was the M.O. (modus operandi in detective-speak) the last time they moved, and neither parent was really happy with the whole situation.  But I guess they're striking while the iron is hot, when they can probably get what they're asking for for the house.

Of course, this means that I'll have to get the rest of my stuff out of their basement sooner rather than later.  Hmm...

And now, I, too, must head to the Land of the Wussburgers.  I actually have nothing on my schedule tomorrow, but I do want to get up early since I will have to get up early the rest of the week.  And since I still need to put some things away that I brought up Saturday night...  I also think I want to re-arrange one of my shelving units too.  So...

Goodnight.

I've been trying to watch a movie and keep shutting them off and starting new ones.  I'm in the middle of Pin-Up Girl, The Frisco Kid and one or two others - none of them are keeping my attention.

So, I proofed and fixed the final two stories.  Now I have to try and figure out a good order for them.  Two of them I hadn't looked at since I wrote them, and I found them very emotional, which is, I suppose, what I intended - but it took me aback.
