I force myself to go to bed at 10pm, so what do I do? Wake up at 2am...

I'm considering taking the adult summer course from these folks. Jett and Brent are both good at making visual art, it would fun to be able to do more than just stick figures.

It looks like I'm moving to the AlohaHaus, starting May 1st, or maybe a few days before. I will spend a month overlapping my residency, and finish moving out of my current place on May 31st. I'm going to be putting out a call for help with the moving. Pizza, hottubing, and gratitude will be provided.

I've just finished doing my 2005 taxes. I don't know what it says about me that I used two different free web preparation services, than downloaded the live PDF forms from the IRS website, then went back to the IRS site again to get the actual tax rate schedules (instead of the "if your taxable is more than X but less than X+10, your tax is Y" tables), and did it to the penny. Doing everything to the penny and with exact rates saved me over five dollars. I owe Uncle Sam $157.57. (I don't understand the people who get excited to get a refund. That means you've given Uncle Sam an interest free loan. I don't offer terms that good to my own family...)
