hc591sc3b6k-vc3a9tc3b3ja-drc3b3n-fekvc591Shit. What the hell am I getting myself into?

Going on vacation to Budapest exactly when Soros-funded hords of Hungarian “Occupy” parasites are defacing the imperial avenues. Note the absence of anything concrete among the ritualistic chanting of “freedom” and “change” – except demand for “minimum wage for public workers” (government employees, I guess) and idea of fracturing the Parliament by eliminating party alliances: by filling it with parties per amount of votes they received.  So, 100 parties of 1-3-6 votes? Great! The louder the bazaar, the better for these useful idiots.

Dear Meaghan,

As we say in Russian, Вы жалуетесь или хвастаетесь? 1-2-3…8! Eight languages! Even if some became sketchy over the years of no-use, you can still look up those faulty keys when the need come to play the keyboard. You (and PeeFee) are still amazing.

You could say, like my late Jewish Grandma, “То, что ты начинаешь учить, я уже давно забыла!”

Saturday was rather annoying. I’ve procrastinated long enough, then was sick, then had to buy a rug (another, not less irritating, story – maybe later) – and suddenly, the February is almost over! So I had to man up, brace up and face the Taxes.

¡Mira, panowie! Turbotax  is beyond belief. Because of one measly 1099-MISC I was forced to file as “self-employed”, and in addition to normal income taxes pay another half-a-thou as “self-employment tax”! Is it something new IRS invented this year?  Since when supplemental freelance gigs, accompanying a solid W2 is considered full-blown “business”? And did you know that Medicare and SS “wages and tips”as basis for namesakes taxes are calculated before your voluntary deductions, unlike your Gross? And the not-insignificant Medicare/SS taxes are not counted into your Federal tax paid – so even though your every paycheck is diminished by 1/4 of it’s worth by taxes, your annual federal obligation demonstrates underpayment? That’s what I call Creative Accounting!

So, not surprisingly, I went to bed in a foul mood, had nightmares all night (sinuses being choked up is no help either) and woke up at 5am. What to do, what to do? Opened my Kindle with latest download of Murder: British Library Classic:  a story by Gerald Findler, titled House of Screams. And I read:

… stopped following tradition of hurriedly finishing up before 12/31 deadline all that was started before. no, I didn’t mop the floors and didn’t bake, and didn’t wrapped up several projects. but I did end several relationships with people who are very important to my wellbeing. it hurts, but had to be done.

anyway – here’re some pics that appeared to be legible on my phone after yesterday’s party.
