busy, busy, busy...  
I expected to feel less busy and rushed now that the film festival is over, but that's not quite happening. I've got Passover Seder here in the city tonight, going out to dinner with the girl tomorrow night, a Deadmines expedition on Saturday afternoon, downloading the season premiere of Doctor Who the exact moment it becomes available on saturday night, and then early Easter dinner in Jersey on Sunday. So, when am I going to have time to do figure out my taxes so that I can get them in the mail on monday? I wonder if I can sneakilly do that while I'm at work. I bet if I had Excel open on my computer nobody would realize what I was up to...

I'm glad you mentioned Easter; I thought for a while there that Dubya had abolished it favour of something more fundamental. Happy Easter! And why do you do your tax returns at such weird time of year? Ours are due 31 January from the previous March 31.

Re: Easter
"Originally, the deadline for completing and filing your individual income tax was not April 15th. In the beginning, it was first set for March 1st. Then, during 1918, Congress pushed the date out to March 15th. Then, in the great overhaul of 1954, the date was once again moved forward to April 15th, and this is where it remains today. Why April 15th? The main thought from most scholars say the reasoning is that the date gives the IRS more time to handle the work load and more time to hang on to your money before offering a tax refund. This date has only been set this way for a little over 50 years. That’s not very long, in historical terms, and it could possibly be changed again."

I celebrate it whenever I'm invited to, which isn't all that often.

neato! well, i suppose in the passovers future, you could always cook up your own seder? though, i'm not too sure what's all involved with that.

have fun tonight...

Maybe when Caleb is old enough to read the four questions.
