I had something to say, but I took too long to come here and type it up. But let's see what I have rattling around in my head.
One, Lenord Nemoy is gone. That was a shock. My sister showed up just as Access Hollywood started their piece on him. It could have been ET, but I don't remember. I just about never watch them, but I really didn't have anything else to watch at the moment and Something they were talking about caught my attention.
The first thing she says after they finish is that she's said he won't be around for the next Star Trek movie. We had just watched the last one like a day or two before, so I didn't hold it against her, but I was surprised by her comment.
Two, I got my tax... papers, forms, whatever you call it, from SH5. My last job. I didn't expect much, but it seems that they paid me just over 3 grand for the 4 months I worked there, so I had to file this year. BTW, talking about work. Did I tell you about my last interview? I think I did. I'll check the last post to make sure later.
So I had to take my tax paper to my cousin. She has been doing the taxes for my mom and sister for years. I almost went over by her one day, because I had to go out to buy some hand soap from Bath & Body, but it was too cold for me, but as I stood there with one shoe one and one off, I picked up the phone and called to see if she was even home. It just kept ringing and ringing, so I was very happy I didn't go. I left her a message, but she took days to call back. I ended up going by Sunday afternoon. In the snow. In the freaking snow.
I know. It's winter. It's going to snow. My issue is I am really hating winter now. I don't like being cold. At all. I can't seem to get warm for days at a time. I don't even seem to have core temperature anymore. This sucks. The day I'm offered something that will give me a good life in a warm place, I'm out of here. I'm going to miss everything else that makes up my NYC life, but the cold is killing me.
Oh, Three. We don't have cell service. My mom took a few days and had a few taken from her over how cold it was, so she couldn't pay and it got disconnected. I know, the math isn't that great. After all, I'm sure you pay like $125 for your cell service. Ours is more like $230 I think. It was over $300 months and months ago. I changed a few things and got a lower price. She had old features that made it that high. So for plan for 5 people, who all have smart phones, it's not bad. It could be a bit better I know, but there are a few add-ons that I can't get rid of or replace with something better yet. I was helping to pay my part of the bill when I was working, but mom went to Canada, then the days off, and stuff didn't get paid, for a while or completely for months, so now it came back to her and the phones are off until she pays it all off and $50 more to reconnect it. That's just insult to injury.
On the cell phone front, my cousin just got one. The same one who does our taxes. Well, I thought she got a cell phone. Then I found out from my mom that it was a free phone that gives you like 260 minutes of call time. It was Jhodie's and she gave it to her so she could have one. All this time, she never got one. It's a free phone she got from the government through the welfare system I think. Some program. You have to use it like at least twice a month in other to keep it, or they take it from you. It's and old-ish phone. It thinks texting is a gift that it only allows 25 spaces for.
Next update will be computer based. :) I've been up all night and almost all morning updating and installing Ubuntu and Windows 7, so I need to sleep.
