Friday Funtimes Something or Other

Today I'm taking Moo Moo to the vet. It's her first time with this vet and the second time I've tried to put her in a carrier. It better not take ten minutes this time.

Speaking of cat doctors; a doctor cat

Awww yeah butter

We need the Ghostbusters to save us from the ghost of Freud. The real Ghostbusters that is. The ones from the 80s.

I can't work near a zoo

Well there's our proof. If it existed there would be porn of it.
I'm still yet to eat a twinkie. Not sure I want one now.

I'm gonna need a pet lizard. And a tortoise. 

And you thought it was just a parenting joke.

I think I'd rather have a grenade

My cats would never agree to this. Shame :(
Have a good weekend folks.

I Just Filed My First Tax Return

I'll tell you now that this post is written well in advance. It's currently 02:53 AM on Wednesday as I write this. I'd still class it as Tuesday night but it is technically Wednesday morning. I just wanted to write this while the memory was still fresh in my mind. So I thought I'd do some writing before bed. As you can no doubt tell from the title of this post I just filed my first ever tax return.
You can feel the evil
I'm going to level with you; it was a LOT easier than I thought it would be. I've heard horror stories about filling in taxes. Stories of how you need every receipt you've ever received ever at hand. In the end I didn't need to provide details of a single purchase. I just needed to provide totals. No need tor any receipts. How about that? I wonder if things are done differently here than in the states.

It was all online which was pretty nice. All I did was load up the website that I use to do all my accounting (Wave Accounting if you're interested) and the online tax form and went from there. The only problem I had was with personal expenses. It took me about 5 minutes to figure out how to switch to my personal account to get the totals for that. The interest on my savings was a pain in the butt too but there were no real problems.

I suppose there is always the chance that I messed up and did it all wrong. It'll take a few days for them to process the return and tell me if I've done it right and how much I owe. Then I just pay it and I'm done.

If I've done everything right then I don't get all the fear about doing taxes. If I've done it wrong then yeah, I'm going to understand that and just go to an accountant.
I wonder what IRS is up to. I bet he could help with taxes
The best part is that one of the questions was asking me if I've taken part in any tax avoidance schemes. Yeah, cos I'm going to admit to that. I wonder if they've ever caught anyone out with that question.

For the record I've never taken part in any kind of tax evasion scheme.
