Good to hear it was relatively easy for you. Everyone's been giving me conflicting information. Do I have to wait until April to claim back this year and the last?

Also do you know if you can claim back some of the NI-A? They've taken quite a lot for that as well (like over 200) and I'm having trouble finding out how much they should take.

Why does no one teach you these things at school.

You can claim back at any time. Just phone tomorrow. I can't remember what overpaid tax I got back but I ended up with about 700. It's the tax office. If they don't have to pay it back they won't. They seem to work on the assumption most people don't know how or if they can claim anything back.

It's always worth asking IMO.

Heh, um, Nordstrom Rack-

$99 is not a great discount. Half your stuff is ugly anyway.

And lady at the pharmacy-

There's a reason why the sign says to stand behind the line until its your turn. Idiot.

Yay, spiders!
I wish I had some spiders around so they could murder the hell out of these mosquitoes.

I need to go through my clothes after the 'big closet disaster'. I am procrastinating. I know I will end up with at least 4 bags to be donated. And I am taking big trash bags.

I solemnly swear I will keep my phone camera ready and screech to a halt when I see the next tarantula on the road. I saw the first one of the season on Thursday.

Biscuits a la cuillere! Or ladyfingers. Or savoiardi for you Brits.
Look away from the "gourmet" (what a crock) pics!

My hand was a little shaky towards the end.

By far the most annoying part of making ladyfingers is this:

But I'd rather do it than trying to pipe them without a visual guide.

Jeep, that an awesome tree!
Very cool spider!

I forgot to mention that a large black snake lives in that tree. The tree itself is still alive even tho it's almost entirely hollow.

I want to be back in Colorado. Vail is too beautiful and the lack of humidity was simply divine. Especially compared to the sauna that is NoVa today.

On another note I made blondies using almond butter that are super yum-and super easy! And receiving rave reviews, too. I rarely bake so this is exciting.

I did it. 5 bags of clothes. Who ever gets my bags at the salvation army will have hit the Ann Taylor motherlode. And before any one suggests I sell them-stop.

Ugh and oy.

I became overwhelming hungry while at my BFF's dogsitting, and ate:

Taco Shells (quite a few)
Pretzels
Stale Mint Milanos (miniatures)
Pizza Flavored Goldish

And lots and lots of ice water.

I feel kind of crummy now. Big surprise.

This is funny. I was just trying to decide last night when we were watching Sherlock Holmes whether I found him attractive or not.

Also, who names their kid Benedict‽
