Hot Damn!

I'm very happy. When they announced that the Bush Administration was going to bankrupt the treasury by sending everyone money, I was excited. Then I saw the payment schedule. Because the last two digits of my social security number falls between 90 and 99, I was in the last group of people to get my money. And that group was scheduled to get the checks the last week of September. Sadsies.

Anyway, things have changed. I was just at the IRS website and my payment has been moved up. Because I got my refund by direct deposit, my stimulus check will come the same way. And because it's direct deposit, they don't actually have to print a check and mail it. I will now have my money in time for my birthday, mid May. I'm still in that last group, but May is way better than September. And if I didn't do the direct deposit, the date for paper check has moved up, too. That would now be in July.

Go to the IRS website and check out when you're going to be getting yours.

Direct deposit May 2, baby. Yay. I didn't realize your birthday was in May too. Figures. All the coolest people are born in May. :)

Completely off topic...I'm too lazy to send a real email....

I just wanted to comment on your great taste in music! I see we share a love for quite a few artists...

Adele, Futureheads, Goldfrapp,Duffy, Kooks etc. I just picked up tix to see Adele here in Seattle next month. That voice is pure gold.

Downloaded Konk last night! So good. I feel too old to listen to the Kooks but I love them.

Should we start a music talk podcast?

Apparently we're getting something like $375 back -- woo-hoo! We can go on a cruise in the Bahamas!

You forgot that we share the same birthday month, Nicole? Shame on you. But yeah, May babies are the best. And May Taurus babies are even better.

Walt said...

Mel, aren't you getting $600 back like most of us?

Erik,

You're never too old for the Kooks. They're fun. Have you tried Malcolm Middleton? I have his last album (A Brighter Beat) and you might like it, based on the stuff I know you like.

I'm not too thrilled with Goldfrapp. I think I fell for the hype. :-(

I'd love to do a music podcast, but I think that might stretch me a little too thin. LOL.
