So yeah. A lot of stuff going on as of late. I'm in the final stages of buying a home-I've gone through the appraisal, the inspection, the earnest money, blah, blah, blah--it costs, but I am assured by those around me that it pays off in the end or somesuch pish. The thing that made this whole home-ownership adventure a little more interesting was the idea of the first-time home owner's tax credit thing people who buy their homes between April 2008 and July 1, 2009 are meant to get. First I heard it was somewhere in the neighborhood of $8000 and I'm thinking, 'sweet! I can use it to get good stuff and not have a house filled with shoddy apartment furniture! Or rather, not just shoddy apartment furniture'. Then I actually read up on it a bit and it turns out you have to pay it back over a 15 year period, and there's all this tax jargon involved, and I'm really just not feeling it. You know what would be awesome? If it was like those crazy stimulus checks we got back in 2008 where money just sort of showed up in your bank account. That was nice. I think that this would all be okay, that I would read all the tax jargon and file all the paperwork to get it if on top the whole house thing I didn't have a flipping wedding to plan. Gotta tell ya, feeling a wee bit overwhelmed here. I'm managing though, with the help of a few bad-ass fics and general squeeing over Star Trek. Good Times.

is one of those silver linings in the cloudy mess that is my inability to organize or multitask.

“I think what would disturb me the most is that after you peel away the surface layer of: ‘I’m so awesome! I’m so awesome! Ow! I just got punched in the face! Hey! Look! Boobs! I’m so awesome! I’m so awesome! Ow! I just got punched in the face.’ that I would just be staring at a vast black hole of nothingness.”

Just. Good, good times. No strings, just cracking up at work and making people stare. Oh Bones, you so crazy.

I saw Star Trek a good three weeks before it came out, and lemme tell ya, it was excruciating enjoying a movie that much and not being able to babble about it. Especially this:

Because that, my friend, is what my best dreams are made of. Anyway, enough rambling, I've got to get back to pretending to work.
