in a move I'd rather not talk about I managed to get ripped off by the internet yesterday and I am still in a bad mood over it. but I've decided to do my taxes and maybe sell some books. hopefully I will get both a refund and a decent price for the titles I no longer need or want.

although with my luck I will owe even though my income is pretty much the deep end below the poverty line even for a household of one.

but if I owe then I won't file for a long time yet. if they owe me, file instantly!

today then I'm going to do a little work on my paying job and then I'm going to do my taxes and then I am going to do what I can to learn PHP with MySQL. I'm slowly getting this all together but having a dissertation due has bitten into my study time.

clothes first. always dress to the shoes!

my taxes are filed. I'm getting a meager refund which pisses me off considering how very little money I have. how can they tax almost nothing? it would be one thing if the money were going towards free healthcare for poor folks or retirement homes for the older among us but the money is going to line the pockets of war profiteers and oil speculators. soon I'll be living in a cabin in the woods with heavy artillery and barbed wire fences to keep the feds out.

now it is on to sell books, many of which I've managed to get duplicate copies of for whatever reason. the one thing I can't seem to find is my second copy of Naked Lunch. one day I was in the bookstore and I thought why haven't I bought this before so I bought it and when I got home I realized that I had bought it before. doh. maybe I gave it to catherine.

I won't even go into the latest ploy by blue cross to swindle me out of thousands of dollars. I'm telling you it's time for the revolution.
