Pay The Man Damn it….

The Tax forms are filled in, and the Man should be receiving them right about now, and a nice size cheque should be waiting at the Post Office in the few days for me. Yes, I get grouchy this time of year filling these damn forms out. This is a reminder of how much of a slave I am to the system, however, I did manage to squeeze more money back on my deductions this year with some fancy calculations. My tuitions seems to have gone down some what compared to last year, but I made up for that with other deductions. It is sad to be reminded that some of my money went into the pockets of useless bureaucrats and into some of their lame-brain government programs.

This year I noticed that even with the increases in personal exemptions the tax rate was not that much better than last year? I also noticed that I had to fill in two extra forms too regarding these personal tax exemptions–that caught me off guard. Hey, I think next year, we are going to get hosed with more taxes as Mr. Harper and boys (and girls) start messing with the budget.

Part of my grouchiness is venting from me having my daily rhythm screwed up because of Day Light Savings Time. It was a damn chore hauling my butt out of bed this morning to go to work. Yes, working on a Sunday, someone needs to? Right? Anyway, I noticed a lot more traffic on the streets and people driving way more faster and aggressively. Fort Langley seems to go 24/7/365 now. It is rare to drive on Glover Road and be the only traffic? Maybe for everyone who goes to work on weekends were all late because of the time change? I was actually early….

I’m tiered. So much I want to write about, but no energy to do it. Oh well, there’s always tomorrow. But I filed early this year: nice to get the torture over and done with.

Another Fab Day!

This was one of the most productive days I have had in a long time! Read on….

Organised my music this afternoon. I sat down and went over all the tracks that I created over the course of last year and copied them over to my archives. Unbelievable how much data I generated while having fun creating music with various music writing and sampling software. Here are three tunes that caught my attention to day. Of course my list will change from day to day depending on how I feel, and whether I even want these released out into the free world…. Some of these “master pieces” have different flavours to them, and may not be likeable to everyone. But hey, they are just sounds–right? I left the titles intact, as they were listed on the software that I wrote them with, and these are not complete. See my November 29th, 2007 Post for LMMS Information.

Weird Little Sex Dreams (2007)

OK, they are not that great, but I am having fun creating them!

Last night’s class went good. The group work went OK. The project got off the ground and the presentation went by good. The profs didn’t throw tomatoes at us *smerk*. I was happy, probably more so that it is over with than the actual experience. Now I wait for the marks to be posted….

I got all my spreadsheets ready for Income Tax Time! Yes, good old tax time, you just gotta love it. I’m still waiting for one more T4 slip, the tally from one of my employer’s over the course of the 2007 fiscal. I hope it comes soon, I want to get this done, off and over with!

I wonder if I will be audited this year? I made a lot less this year than last. They could get suspicious–Tom not paying his lion’s share to the G-Man’s Pockets! Yes, I wanted to cut back on my taxes this year, and in doing so, I took a cut on my personal income. Seems to have worked because my deductions are way down from last year which means I didn’t support anyone whose on welfare this year, or help fund stupid government programs that only seem to help the first class people. I think this is the first year in a long time that I actually feel I gave my fare share, he he he, to the Man.
