Sweet day!

A while ago my boss told me her accountant had said I might be getting a tax refund of about 5 or 10 bucks. I told my boss that my taxes were already really low (3.3%) and that I would be surprised to get anything back, especially since (assuming Korean taxes are at all similar to American ones) I don't have any dependents and didn't really want to bother trying for any exemptions or anything. I also told her she could keep the cash as a birthday present, or even just forget about filing if that was an option. Then, today, I got a government money order for $103.80. Sweet action! That's like a month and a half's worth of taxes! I immediately canceled my offer to let my boss have some, though the other boss started begging me to pay for the next company dinner.

In other news, Donny and Dylan, two of my friends just graduated college and are going to be moving to different cities - one to Seoul (score!), one to Ulsan (lame!). So, I'll either be taking some weekend trips in the future, or I'll be finding some new friends.

Also, I think I'm getting an ingrown toenail. If I don't get comments from at least 5 different people, I'm going to post a picture. Take that!

What if you get comments from 5 different people asking you to post the pictures of your gross toenail?

Seriously though, nobody wants to see that Mike. C'mon.

Hrm, when I posted I had an odd feeling that my threat might be susceptible to some sort of mischief. I don't have a good answer for you, so you'll have to wait for your dream-situation to come true before we know.

Anyhow, I know nobody wants to see the thing. Heck, it's on my body, and I don't even want to see it. But that's the whole point of a threat, right?

show me yours i'll show you mine said...

It's not a threat if I want to see it. Which I do.

I would kinda like to see your toenail. Also, I can sympathize with your tax-rebate disappointment since bobby and I are STILL waiting on our US Stimulus check.
