OOoo. That explains the kitties names!! I would love to be a sommelier.


I haven't looked up what "sommelier" means yet, and I'm not a wine fan, but I
think working at a steak house would be a little too much of a good thing for
me! Yum!

I'm a retired CPA who is trying to decide if I really want to do any tax
returns this year or not.

have some, ok a lot, of computer geeks, educators (or what passes for one)
and so forth. You don't have to be any more specific than you want, but I
confess to being extremely curious. If you're currently out of work, you
don't have to say so, just list your career field.

Awesome! I love wine and would love to be a wine buyer... or an exotic
food buyer...

"kinda married"? Is that like being a little bit pregnant? =P


With the laws being as short sighted as they are about gay marriages,
sorts married is about the right term. The two have been together
longer than a lot of heterosexual couples, but aren't allowed by law to
make it formal. Seems unfair to me, why shouldn't they be as miserable
as the rest of us. :-)

It's not just the miserable part though... As it stands now, if Tom
were to be hospitalized and unconscious, I would not have the right to
be by his side. If I were to die, all the assets that I own that I have
willed to Tom would be taxed at 50% (or something ridiculous like that),
whereas if he were my husband there would be no tax. The list of
unfairness goes on and on...

Don't get me started on my rant about how stupid anti-gay-marriage laws are =/

Not nice!

I just finished last years.

One argument for doing a few for others is it will pay for the good software
I like to use but can't justify buying just to do mine.

My rule is I don't do my own return till I've finished everyone else's.
Usually like this year it gets done on October 15th.

Fine, get me started on my rant!

Actually, you've made a lot of the points I was going to make.

The insurance at both my employer and my husband's will cover "life partners,"
so at least that's one small step.

Honestly, I don't understand what is going on in people's heads. I've heard
people argue that marriage is for procreation ... but if that's the case, why
do hetero couples with no intention to have children get to be married, while
gay couples who do have kids don't get those benefits? It makes no sense!

Some days, I just hate people =/
