TAXES!!!!!

It's March 12th and I got my taxes finished before the deadline! All I can say is paying an expert who knows about the ins and outs of every schedule, form, and possible red-flag is invaluable. Sure this argument is strangely familiar to what you said on your 18th birthday at the Green Valley Ranch in Nevada, but it's true. I did my taxes every year using at home computer programs and ended up owing. This year, I met a nice CPA and ended up getting a few bucks back. But my favorite pasttime will always be tax evasion!

Groan... Taxes... Thanks for reminding me Chi-Lan.

Brent said...

What type of computer do you use Chi? I know you like Mac. I use a G4 Powerbook.

Chi-Lan Lieu said...

Brent, I knew you would be the first to post! Hazaa! I use an iBook my sister kindly got me for my birthday last year. I have an iPod, my cell is the Noklia 7610, and am getting a GPS device for my car.

And I saw Mischa Barton (from the OC) at The Grove this weekend. She looks exactly the way she does on tv in person. That's impressive.

Doing your own taxes is like the first time you go out on a date with someone. You try to make sure you do everything perfectly, but inevitably you wind up stressing over the fact that you might have messed up somewhere.

Yeah, only my messed up mind could equate love and the IRS in the same thought.

That's a tight phone. Sounds like someone has fat pockets. I have one question: iPOD Mini, Photo, Shuffle, U2, or 20 Gb?
Personaly with me being 12 I have an old but good Nokia 2260. No iPOD but a Nintendo DS. And a pair of roller blades. I'm a kid!!!

Well, atleast you no longer have to worry about taxes this year. You say you have an iBook, which is aweseome, but do you own any other kind of computer? And are you strictly a Mac user? At the moment I use Windows, but I'm looking to buy a MacMini, that thing is awesome. Catch ya around.

Thaman said...

I hate macs!!!!! iPods are tight. Windows XP Art Edition is what I'm running on.

Thaman said...

I have just been wondering. Hazaa?
You've said it twice. New catch phrase?

Awww... sorry to hear that you are leaving G4, now I will not have an excuse to watch TSS anymore, except they do have some interesting interviews "once in awhile"... I suppose I will have to fixate on Diane Mizota now... 'sigh'.

Wait a minute... isn't Green Valley Ranch a casino in Las Vegas? or, did you mean a different kind of "ranch" in Nevada? (in that case I would have no idea what your talking about...lol) umm... anywayz...

Well, like everyone said, its probably the best thing for you to leave G4 at this time. Good luck.

Hi chi-lan I was wondering if your going to talk about reviews you did for Stuff mag in your blog. I'm about to get Stuff mag just because your going to review in it. Can you tell me where you got in too this type of field and how I can? I started a blog because of things I bought and wanted to review. So please can you read my blog and tell me what I need.
I know this is spam but it's the only way.

I'm not Chi-lan but I'll tell you what you do need. A life. Your blog had me falling asleep in my office chair. It's worse than that Spider-Man imposter posting crazy notes around here. Sorry, but it's my opinion and you just have to accept that.

Brent said...

Chi-lan since you are hob nobbing with all these Hollywood types... do you know Stuart Halpern? He was the associate producer on Veronica's Closet.

Nick said...

I love the show "American Casino" on the Discovery Channel, which takes place at Green Valley Ranch. Chi-Lan, enjoy your stay at GVR!!

Marcus said...

Taxes suck. Maybe you can get more exemptions for claiming unemployment. I never thought I would say this, but CONGRATULATIONS! (again)

--Anh said...

I was at party with Misha on Saturday. It was prety happening.

Hey Chi-Lan, i been meaning to get a hold of you somehow. I saw you at Jingle Ball in the press area thingy. I knew ive seen you somewhere but couldnt put my finger on it. But yeah.. Just wanted to say whats up.

Thaman said...

Holy snickies, you need help. LOL
THANK YOU JESUS. Try that some time.

Boss of Sad said...

Yeah, we CPAs are the bomb-diggity, yo. Fun fact: we're also sexual dynamos! :-)

As far as your Mischa Barton sighting, whenever I hear her mentioned I can't help but think of that website Go Fug Yourself - Miss Barton has made quite a few appearances there, esp. of late.
