Been spending all day doing financial things today. Rendering unto Caesar and all. The tax system in America would be changed in a second if everyone had to write out the check themselves (instead of having it deducted from your check). Then you’d all be outraged.
I needed a break from money, so here you go:
1. Recap of LOST last night: We learned nothing, except that a Scottish accent is a beautiful thing. Except I guess we already knew that. (Have I mentioned it’s a life goal of mine to live in Scotland?)
Anyway, Desmond had a big part in last night’s episode. You remember Desmond, right?
2. Our friend from the Chinese Restaurant sent home a pair of chopsticks, fortune cookies and placemats for the kids to celebrate Chinese New Year on Monday. Apparently, I am an Ox on the Chinese calendar, and this is our year! Good to know. It’s also interesting that the personality test I took a month or so ago, compared me to Napoleon. So did the Chinese placemat. I hope I won’t be banished to Elba.
We used our chopsticks at lunch:
3. This is the fortune SuperBoy got in his cookie: “You are a bundle of energy and always on the go.”
This was a direct attack against our parenting skills, seeing as how we repeatedly say the fortunes are made up by some worker in a factory in San Francisco and are not really truly real fortunes.
(Why does “If” by Bread seem to just HAVE to be the song of the day?)
