Six Feet Under is running on a marathon on one of the cable channels. Damn I forgot how truly awesome this show was.

And for anyone who still thinks the last ten minutes of the series finale were the most amazing ten minutes EVER, I found it youtube .

I still cry when watching that clip.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Since [livejournal.com profile] sakkebomb 's answer is so close to mine, I can't resist.

I am driving my old 64 1/2 Ford Mustang and I am up in Big Bear. I get on a straightaway and gun the engine and drive right off the side of the cliff, continuing to pound the gas pedal as I soar into the air in slow motion.

I think about my life and my passions as I hurtle towards the ground and the dream either ends in a firey explosion, or I just go poof/black like in the old road runner cartoons.

I used to have this dream all the time, now it happens about once a year. It actually leaves me feeling quite peaceful.

I paid some bills last night and decided that yeah, I need to and can afford to go to my beloved hair gal and get my hair cut (fixed, not cut shorter) and colored and highlighted. I am going to go lighter, which makes it easier for the gray to be less obvious as well as summer is coming. And considering what some of you gals have posted about how much your hair gals cost, I guess I have been a Scrooge to think mine was too expensive.

While I couldn't get this Saturday, I can get next Wednesday the 20th at 6 PM. Since Lost will be over, I am jazzed to be getting it done.

I am eating leftover Kung Pao chicken from mother's day. Holy hell, I made extra white rice and am finishing my third glass of water and my mouth is still on fire. It was not this hot the first night (I guess the burn set in...) my nose is runny too.

But damn it's good.

I really hope I can use this icon again, but after the last two games... ugh.

Ever since I came home from Toastmasters she has been all up in my business. I took her out for a long walk, and have been hugging and kissing on her. She is relentlessly clingy for some reason and I can't figure it out. Normally she'd be going to get her rope toy to play fetch, but she is laying at my feet; head on my foot. She is literally blocking me from scooting closer to my desk.

Weird.

I think she is also afraid of the new automated kitchen trash even though she doesn't trigger it to open.

I will reserve my opinion on this and post it for those who may be debating buying this year:

Low Down on the $8,000 First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit

If you’re still on the fence about acquiring a home, then Uncle Sam has just thrown an extra incentive for those of you that’s still debating on waiting further or buying — a nice fat, $8,000 incentive (it’s not $15,000 but you take what you can get, eh?).

Since they’ve been throwing around a bunch of different numbers and qualification scenarios, here’s the fairly-certain low down on the new home buyer tax credit.

To Qualify for the $8,000 “First-Time” Homebuyer Tax Credit:

  • Home purchase must be made between January 1, 2009 and November 30, 2009.
  • Must be a “first time buyer.” In order to qualify for this status, you must not have owned a home for the past three years.
  • You must also live in the purchased house for at least three years, or you’ll be obligated to pay back the tax credit.
  • Homebuyers must make less than $75,000 for single tax filers, or $150,000 for couples.
  • Higher-income buyers will receive a partial tax credit, but details have not yet been fully released.
  • Single family residence purchases (condominiums, townhouses, co-ops) that will be used as a principal residence will qualify.

How to Claim the Homebuyer Tax Credit:

  • Simply claim it on your tax return.  You will not have to filed any other forms or papers.  If you’re not a procrastinator like me and you’ve already filed your taxes, you can simply file an amended return for 2008 to claim the credit.
  • What type of tax credit is it? It’s one of the better type: a refundable one.  This means that if you don’t owe any taxes, you will get any excess credit in the form of a fat refund check.  Example: If you owe $1,000 in taxes, you’ll get a $7,000 refund check.  If you’ve overpaid $1,000 in taxes, then you’ll get a $9,000 check. You can read more about refundable tax credit in the resource link below.
  • If you’ve already claimed last year’s $7,500 tax credit, then you won’t be able to claim the $8,000 credit on next year’s return. It’s one credit or the other, buddy.
  • Unlike the previous $7,500 tax credit, there’s no repayment required for this $8,000 tax credit!  (Unless of course you sold your house within three years, as stated earlier).

Other Miscellaneous Notes:

  • If you’re buying into a retirement community, unfortunately, the purchase won’t qualify for the $8,000 first-time homebuyer tax credit.

This post will be updated as the IRS release further details upon their interpretation of the just-passed American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Regardless if you think the first-time homebuyer tax credit in the stimulus bill is a smart move or that it’s entirely bullsh*t  — the tax credit will certainly be a nice bonus for those that are looking to purchase a home in 2009.

I took Little Sister out to see Friday the 13th this afternoon and for once I really wish I would have done the parent check on the movie before we went. I am not a prude and I KNOW she doesn't lead a sheltered life, but we got three sets of breasts (implants all the way) two sex scenes; one doggie style and one with girl on top, a guy smoking a joint, a guy admiring marijuana crops, and another guy smoking a bong. GOOD GRIEF - epic fucking fail on my part.

Anyways, she seemed unfazed by it all and I did make the joke that when you do bad things, crazy men with machetes come after you.

We also talked about:
Don't follow the man with the machete back to his camp
Don't wander off alone with there is a man with a machete outside
Don't stand in front of tall windows with your back to the window when there is a man with a machete outside
Don't ask the scary man in the hockey mask if he would like a hockey stick to complete the outfit
Don't continue standing on the shabby floor when there is a crazy man with a machete shoving it up through the floor

Overall, we gave the movie a "C" and went and got pizza afterwards for lunch and discussed the whole Chris Brown thing and how it is NEVER okay for a man to beat up a woman (she was a HUGE Chris Brown fan...)

Then I got home and we decided to use our coupon for Red Robin for dinner and hit the Verizon store in the same mall (Irvine Spectrum) since my cell phone has been dying. First we went to Verizon and found a super cool phone. (No, my phone did not cost that much.) It was more than I expected to get, but we also decided that now that we both have good cell phones we will get rid of the house line, so that saves us about $30 a month - well worth the cost of my new phone. Chris is having fun playing with it and I am wishing it came with an instructional DVD for all the stuff it has on it!

I also got a new wireless headset that wont pinch my ear and make me want to break the law by making calls on the phone and screaming at the microphone while using speakerphone with the phone in my lap. It's good to be a state employee too because there is a 25% discount on everything. (I am on his family plan too.)

Then we went to a game store and got a second guitar for guitar hero so we can rock out together. Now that is what I call a fun V-day gift.

So a few games back, Selanne got hurt. He got pushed in such a way that he wound up slicing his thigh with his own skate.

Thankfully nothing... permanant... was severed, but he will be out for awhile and the Ducks are playing like crap in his absence. They play Dallas at 5, and I want to watch the game, but I am nervous as well. I really hope they get their shit together, find some chemistry that works on all the lines, and WIN.

Because for kids, its about playing the game, but for my Ducks, it's about the WIN!

It's been awhile since I have written some, and the mood just struck me...

The sunlight dances

Stupid, broken blinds!

Through the glass I seek
a dark gray cloud covering.
I'm being blinded.
