In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Tax Time

2Blowhards regrets to announce that tax season has proved so traumatic this year that we have been temporarily unable to blog.

We hope to sober up, er, resume our regularly scheduled blogging shortly.

Best regards,

Michael and Friedrich

Hmmph. So what makes this year's tax season any more traumatic than last year's, or for that matter, any tax season since the beginning of time?

Tax season may stay the same, but we're getting older. And grumpier.

Doing my taxes is a task very much on the list of things I pay other people to do. It's quick, it's easy.... well, okay, it's not fun. But it is quick and easy. I take all 40,000 scraps of paper pertaining to income and expenses, hand them over to the nice CPA, and then write a check.
