Well I sat down to do a quick once over of our taxes etc. Between the emergency family leave crap, Erin being unemployed a good portion of the year, my returning part time until Jan and only teaching we now have the lowest combined income since before I started grad school, 10 years ago.

Almost 30k down from last year (17.5k British or so).


I just want to say, fuck you 2005.


I need to come up with a great idea like that guy who said he would kill and eat a bunny unless people sent him X amount of money.

On the plus side my financial problems also prevented me from having to spend time playing online games with Lurker and Venom.

So my glass is half full.

so 30k is no that much money for preventing you having to spend time wizz willy and billy, i'd say it's a bargain.

30k is low

I have a hard time surviving by myself on 20k

She said 30K down on last year, not what that brought the total down to.

In which case it's high.

"Almost 30k down from last year"

Is that before or after taxes?

Plus you could watch the SWG debacle from afar and laugh.

Yeah but I would have really loved to be able to log in and see just how bad it is rather than just hear it. Its like a car wreck, you just have to stop and put your finger in the dead guys open wound.

SOE is sending out e-mails to EQ1 ex-subscribers offering a month free to come back and try the game. If I get one offering a month free of my old station pass I will get to test it out for free!

MMOs are fun, they but you in the middle of a gigantic world with absolutely no direction and let you figure out through trial, error, and frustration how the fuck everything is supposed to work.

I misread the thread title as "Wow. I knew my fiancees sucked this year, but this bad?" .

Is that also true?

Venom

Perhaps it is Lurker and I who were saved.

Drekkus
02-01-2006, 14:32:31
what?

Venom
02-01-2006, 14:33:47
What indeed.

You and Lurker being saved? You finally saw Jesus in some weird gay way?

Oh wait, I misread her post. I thought she was saying she was down 30K TO 17.5K but she was just demonstrating her knowledge of the pound-dollar exchange rate. My mistake!

Kpm Mollrt also misread. Damn students can't even read these days.

I don't need to read, I can get other people to do it for me.

I tried to do my exams that way for several years as well. Didn't work out for me.

You need to re-read this whole thread.
