  1. LB log - 20140512

    The office opens at 9AM. That means I can probably wake up at 6 and take care of business before making the call to ensure I have a reason to drive out there today. I'm assuming that I will be making the trip.

    The IRS response did in fact come today, and it appears that I have a series of adjustments to make. It won't be happening tonight, though; but perhaps I can look into some of it, depending on how much demand this cat on my desk has for me to bestow attention upon it.

    The cat accompanied me to bed this morning. In the process of doing that, he stands on my body as I'm on my back and petting him. This makes him happy enough to drool. When he drools at this point, he sneezes and sprays drool everywhere. When he did that today, I had my eyes open at just the right time to get a money shot of cat drool directly onto my right eyeball. It triggered a reaction strong enough to compel me to move downstairs and sleep on the futon so that I could get decongested and blow ...

    I had a whole post written for yesterday and I guess I just never actually clicked on the submit button after getting the preview set. Weird. I usually don't fail to make that much happen correctly.

    The tax code updates are finally done. There were more minor revisions at the end than I had anticipated. I was at a point where I was having progress nearly halted because I kept bouncing from one source document to another and subsequently losing my place on the main source page for ...

    The going rate seems to be $2500 for the course. Now I just need to figure out how soon I can start. It seems that my mind is pretty well made up about this. I had a phone call from my Mom today about people she's spoken with and about how I might be able to have a job where she worked (then went into detail about how the place "sucks you in and you never feel like you can leave and you get worked" and so on; it was a really effective sell), and all the while I realize that her proposal ...

    One course is up for four weeks and $2500. Another I'll need to call. The ducks are lining up. Every day is pain for her, still. Still. That hasn't changed. I need to do this in case all else continues to fail as it has failed for so long now.

    In the meantime I have the rest of the tax code to finish up as well as see about doing these applications for some video game journalist job links. See, I mentioned a while ago that my wife's friend's son wants to become a game journalist, ...

    26 USC 433 requires me to add a new 188 lines worth of content to the tax code page. The subject is minimum funding standards about pension plans, so there's a lot of dense content per item which means that a lot of it is going to be left on the cutting floor when I'm done with it. This is going to take a while.

    I was able to finally obtain the acknowledgements from my 1120 submissions last week and get a few today, until it all just as suddenly came to a complete stop. I was logged ...

  7. A Whole Lot of Dark Souls 2

    Disclaimer: This will probably end up a giant rant about the game, and I'm going to cover everything that comes to mind, so if you haven't finished or don't want to be spoiled on certain things, you have been warned!

    Now, I mentioned I would compare my day one stats and my end game stats, and I plan to. But I'll even spare you the equipment, which I recorded because I'm nuts about these games like that. And yes achievements are in there because I like that ...

    945PM and I can't even keep focus on anything. I probably should have just stayed in bed when seeing my wife to sleep earlier. 75 minutes later, I at least managed to get around on doing the code updates. Very minor changes were all I had until I got to the bottom of Public Law 113-97. http://beta.congress.gov/113/bills/h...3hr4275enr.xml . Looks like I have a new section to add as well as a fair quantity of changes to be made elsewhere. This new congress.gov layout is pretty nice, and ...

    What I actually should be doing before getting back into writing more ES roughs is to get the tax code page up to date, as I mentioned before. I looked at the classification tables a few days ago and didn't find too many individual sections which needed revision, but of course that doesn't inform me of exactly how much needs to be changed. But, still, I should do that first.

    Besides, there might be a lot more time for the former in the future regardless. She goes back to work tomorrow ...

    Still no IRS acknowledgement and the weekend is here. Individual tax season is done. I've been thinking about resuming it, so let's go.

    Draft.

    The snoring continued uninterrupted. She made a second attempt by bending over and speaking louder.

    Yes I did have to call the IRS today for them to give me my Software ID number, as I had no response in the mail. Just before writing this, I finished sending off the revised submissions to include the SID which I received. I didn't receive any acknowledgement for any of them, and I had given plenty of time for at least the first of them to come back as I saw my wife to bed after sending that one in and before getting the rest submitted. If I can't get any kind of resolution on how to get this issue ...

    I didn't get to exercise until 3AM yesterday thanks to having other things to do when I woke up. Doing that then going to bed only to wake up and do another hour today was ... nothing particularly special at all actually. I will say, I should have checked the questionnaire that the IRS sent me yesterday before going to bed, as it didn't have a Software ID provided on it, which means that I'll need to await for it to come back in a new response or call for one tomorrow.

    I signed up at one of those survey sites recently, figuring that it would give me something to do while I sit here during idle moments instead of endlessly poking message boards. After a few misfires and rejections for not meeting the criteria for having a survey completed (which is honestly a bit surprising - are general consumer surveys worth a damn if you're selective of who you poll?), I finished one survey today about various car insurance products. It took about 30 minutes to do in total and ...

    A female coworker who's younger than me told me that she was into games like Call of Duty and Smash Brothers, and for some reason I have taken this as an opportunity to show off bits and pieces of my collection and my IIDX table and the like. I'm curious what her response will be. The main reason that I'm bringing this up here is because I have found myself having no issue in revealing all of this at the drop of a hat without any real fear of negative repercussions. I guess I've been reading too ...

    16. The funk is still there. It is still acceptable to sit anywhere at any time, which includes while riding elevators or in the middle of a store and refusing to move out of the way as other people walk around the obstruction. Even with a knife available, it is still acceptable to push food with fingers onto a fork. The word "immaculate" needed to be parsed into its individual syllables so that it could be pronounced.

    My wife informed about this later today - when we were ...
