Not To Be Trusted With Knives











{January 10, 2009}   Random Stuff
  • I’m only blog 3 postings away from 1000!  And as soon as I hit “publish” on this one, I’ll be only 2 postings away!
  • I now have a cleaning person!  Based on a recommendation from Nancy, I have a cleaning person who comes to my apartment and scrubs my kitchen and bathroom and leaves my place all shiny and fresh smelling. I think my life may be officially complete.
  • I’m going to get an accountant to do my taxes this year. My tax situation has now officially crossed the line of “too complicated for me to do in my sleep”1 and so I think it’s time for professional help.
  • If you are a Vancity member, be sure to check out the Vote Action website to learn more about the Action Slate candidates for Vancity Board of Directors. And if you aren’t a Vancity member, you should become one because Vancity is a wicked good credit union. And then tell them that I told you to be a member, because then they will give me money.
  • And finally, a question for you: My parents gave me $200 for Christmas – what should I spend it on? I usually just put birthday and/or Christmas money into my regular account with the idea I’ll get myself something nice and then I don’t and I just end up spending it on groceries or rent. And I’m pretty sure my parents want me to get myself something nice, not groceries. But I can’t decide what to get – any ideas?

1My tax years up until 2006 were “I’m a student. I make very, very little money. I pay huge  tuition fees –> You pay no taxes!” 2007 was my first non-student year, but I was able to handle my tax return via Quicken. 2008, however, I got all uppity with my working multiple jobs plus consulting and it makes my head hurt to even think about it.

{January 10, 2009}   It’s Bethmas Eve!

IMG_4497

So first off, I have to admit that I totally stole my blog title from Miss 604, who said on Jan 8, the day before her birthday, that it was “Becky Eve.”1

Since my actual birthday is tomorrow, a Sunday2, I decided to get some friends together last night for dinner and to watch the Canucks game at Coppertank.   Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate my birthday with me!  And special thanks to Airdrie who brought me a cake!  And Rachel who brought cupcakes!  And Jen who gave me a card with the awesome sticker that I’m wearing in this photo.

1I thought this was on Twitter, but I searched Twitter to be able to provide a link to it and it’s not there. Then I thought maybe it was on Facebook, but I checked that and it’s not there either, nor is it on Miss604.com. So I have no idea where I saw it!
2On top of Sundays being not the best day for celebrating, I have a hockey game to play on Sunday.
