One: Don't be an idiot like me and go to the post office on Tax Day. I had to send something with a return receipt on it, so I had to go in, but I didn't even think about what day it was until I saw the line out of the door. Grrr.
Two: I got a chuckle out of listening to people on the radio talk about tea-bagging today. The first 5 times. Then it just got old.

I am starting a new job tomorrow. I don't like change!!! But it will be a really good learning experience. And I really need full-time employment and there isn't a whole lot out there right now. Hopefully it will be ok. I don't have to love it there, but I really don't want to hate it.

Does Publix still sell tickets through ticketmaster? It has been years since I bought tickets there. And I am in Publix every week buying groceries, but I guess I haven't noticed whether they do or not. I was going to buy tickets for a show in Atlanta. The ticket itself is $16 and the bs fees were $7. What the hell? That is half the price of the ticket...sheesh...I guess I had forgotten what a rip-off tm is.

| My Personality
|You are a calm person who is considered almost fearless by some, however you experience panic, confusion, and helplessness when under pressure or stress. You are not prone to spells of energetic high spirits. You prefer dealing with either people or things rather than ideas. You do not like to claim that you are better than other people, and generally shy from talking yourself up, however you do not enjoy confrontation, but you will stand up for yourself or push your point if you feel it is important. You are well-organized and like to live according to routines and schedules. Often you will keep lists and make plans.|

I now personally see why people have such a hatred for the IRS. Apparently I am being audited. My refund kept being delayed and yesterday I noticed a message that said there was a problem and to call the 8oo number. And here is the thing...I always get a refund. I make sure of it. Throughout the year, I claim single no dependents w/ payroll. I then have an additional amount taken out. Then when I file, I am head of household and claim 2 dependents - myself and Courtney. So I always get a refund. It is my way of saving money. So, why, after 10 years of filing the same exact way, 10 years of making less than $30,000, 10 years of filing a freaking EZ form and I being audited??? It is bullshit.
So, I called the IRS this morning. Gave the dude all my info, told him that online it says I should have received a form, but I had NOT. He puts me on hold for about 5 minutes and then comes back ans says, Ma'am did you get a form in the mail? A CP05 notice? NO!!! Sheesh, if you had listened the first time...then he comes back on the line and says, Ok, here is what will happen, on April 28th you will receive a CP05 form and within 3 weeks the IRS will make a decision as to whether or not they need more info from you. Good grief, could they waste more time and money? Why not just tell me what you need? So, in three weeks I possibly (but highly unlikely) with get my money but more likely I will have to wait on another letter in the mail to see what I have to do. Would it not just save time to tell me what you need over the phone? And why the hell would it take a week and a half to get a fucking letter? Where the hell in the USA is it being mailed from? Is the post office that bad? Why bother even having telephone operaters? Why not just tell me that online when I checked my refund status? A monkey could have told me that and NOT answered the questions I had. Everything I asked he said, I don't know. Fucking useless.

I was wondering how many people I know (at least through LJ) would be willing to participate in something I have been thinking about. There is a woman in the library program at UA that is currently battling leukemia right now. She will eventually need a bone marrow transplant. My brother is in remission right now, but he is still undergoing treatment for leukemia. And although his particular type didn't/doesn't require a bone marrow transplant as part of the treatment, we have met people during his hospital stays and visits who are desperately waiting for someone to test as a match.
I know LifeSouth off of Oxmoor Rd does bone marrow testing. There is a cost of $55 to have the sample tested and typed. I know that is a lot of money but I was thinking of asking a relative to sort of sponsor me (instead of buying them going to the trouble of buying a present for xmas I'll never use). I just thought it might be neat to get a whole big group together and go. Or even just donating blood if the $55 is too steep. I know when my brother was in the hospital in one month alone he used an insane amount of blood, something like 66 units. What do you think? Would anyone want to go with me?

Apparently there was a murder-suicide at my apartment complex over the weekend. I hadn't heard anythng about it, I just read it on al.com. Well, to look on the bright side...at least it appears to be a domestic thing, instead of just random violence. That makes me feel a little better. I guess.

|what the fuck?!?!
I can't believe this:http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16948093/
A law requiring girls to receive the cervical cancer shot. What the fuck is going on? This hasn't even been on the market for more than a few months.
"Merck is bankrolling efforts to pass state laws across the country mandating Gardasil for girls as young as 11 or 12. It doubled its lobbying budget in Texas and has funneled money through Women in Government, an advocacy group made up of female state legislators around the country.
Perry has several ties to Merck and Women in Government. One of the drug company’s three lobbyists in Texas is Mike Toomey, Perry’s former chief of staff. His current chief of staff’s mother-in-law, Texas Republican state Rep. Dianne White Delisi, is a state director for Women in Government."

Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck. I am so pissed. And confused. After being at work from 745-5, I drove all the way to Tuscaloosa last night to find out that my class was cancelled. Hmm. I don’t remember getting any e-mail or anything about that. The woman I ran into in the hall said, “oh, she posted an announcement on the slis site.” Okay. That doesn’t mean anything to me. I have my own personal e-mail address, obviously. Then I was assigned a mybama account, which has a stupid e-mail account, too. Then last semester one of my teachers told me I need to sign up for a slis account. Ok. I have never used it for anything. And there is also a stupid Web CT thing that things can be posted on. I looked today and I don’t find anything anywhere.
So, am I just a fucking moron? Or is there some parallel library universe that I don’t know about yet? This is only my second semester….but still, you think I would have found out about at the stupid places this bullshit library crap is posted on. Right?
And now to my current confusion…..my stupid online class. I don’t know why my mic won’t work…but this is the second week in a row and it is annoying. And we have a shit ton of work to do for this class. And it is also annoying that it seems that everybody in my class is already working in a school library. So they all are talking about a bunch of crap that I know nothing about. GRRR!!! And so while I am tuning my teacher’s lecture out, I am surfing the net for school media certification guidelines in other state. I assume I am moving out of the state to get a good job when a graduate. Well….it is like some big fucking ordeal to find the guidelines clearly stated. And the ones I do find are a big pain in the ass to get certified. So what the fuck am I doing? Why am I even going to school? I guess just fucking wasting money on a useless masters degree.

Anyhow....what is going on New Years in Birmingham or the surrounding areas? I need something fun to do.
