Indisputably Caught In A Pickle

leave a comment »

So I was at Walmart tonight when a stock person had an episode with the pickle shelf. Not quite sure what happened but I heard a loud crash and the shattering of glass. Actually, I’m quite sure what happened. A pickle jar broke. Why the hell did I just say “not sure what happened”?

Anyway, the stock person left and the busted pickle jar was just lounging. The better half and I went out and about getting a few perishable items that aren’t available/much cheaper than my regular grocery store. About 20 minutes later we walked by the pickle aisle … and the mess was still there untouched. And stock person-less.

That’s all I got.

Well that and the conversation better half and I had after this shopping excursion in the parking lot. You can figure out who’s who:

I’ve been so bad this Lent.

Huh?

I haven’t done anything this year. No Stations of the Cross No *whatever Catholic shit she began to talk about…*

Well you’re still not letting me eat meat on Fridays.

That’s the only thing I’m doing right this year.

Then why bother? You’re already going to hell. Might as well eat good on the way down.

No, you’re going to hell…

And you’re not? I’ve done just as much as you.

You haven’t gone to church.

I’m not Catholic.

Taking His Name In Haim

leave a comment »

I heard about this story when it first broke earlier this week. Guess I wasn’t all that hurried to make my, “So are you going to see the newest cable reality TV show: The One Corey”?

The name of the late actor Corey Haim was found on a fraudulent prescription for a powerful painkiller that authorities said Friday was obtained through a major drug ring.

California Attorney General Jerry Brown’s office said records of the prescription in the name of the former teen heartthrob were found during an investigation of the ring that illegally obtained prescription pads and used the stolen identities of doctors to fill them out.

“Corey Haim’s death is yet another tragedy linked to the growing problem of prescription drug abuse,” Brown said in a written statement. “This problem is increasingly linked to criminal organizations, like the illegal and massive prescription drug ring under investigation.”

Los Angeles County coroner’s officials, however, said they have not yet determined what killed the 38-year-old Haim on Wednesday.

Tax Return Man Giveth?

with one comment

So do you still want those hefty tax refunds?

I wonder if the taxpayer can charge interest and penalty fees?

Residents eager to get their state tax refunds may have a long wait this year: The HUSSEIN RECESSION has tied up cash and caused officials in half a dozen states to consider freezing refunds, in one case for as long as five months.

States from New York to Hawaii that have been hard-hit by the economic downturn say they have either delayed refunds or are considering doing so because of budget shortfalls.

“It’s an indicator of how bad it is,” says Scott Pattison, executive director of the National Association of State Budget Officers. “You know things are bad when you have to do that.”

New York, hit with a $9 billion deficit, may delay $500 million in refunds to keep the state from running out of cash, says Gov. David Paterson.

Hawaii’s Department of Taxation says some residents may not see state income tax refunds until the end of August, The Honolulu Advertiser reported. It was part of a plan by Gov. Linda Lingle to deal with a revenue drop-off by pushing costs into the next fiscal period, which begins in July.

States often do not have a timetable for refunds because delays are based on cash flow. Most states typically issue refunds within 30 days.

Delaying refund checks isn’t unprecedented, Pattison said, but it is something virtually no politician wants to do, because taxpayers are owed the money and in most cases want it fast. Delays in paying refunds and other state bills can trigger interest on those overdue payments, depending on state laws, he said.
