All for me, sorry, no awesome children handouts. I'm thinking clothing free-for all, maybe starting with Filene's Basement for maximum bang/buck ratio. Save enough for a mad high-dollar steak and baked potato dinner for two. Or maybe just one, too keep with the "all for me" spirit.

Alex in Baltimore, Thursday, 14 February 2008 03:57 (twelve years ago) link

as a side note, is it really possible that no one in the world has made the obligatory "I got your economic stimulus package right here!" crotch grab joke, or am i just watching all the wrong television networks these days.

No wait, changed my mind. I'll still do dinner if I can, but I could really use a good wool suit. Just one is all I need, long as it's charcoal and comes with two pair of pants.

Check came yesterday. Can't cash it because it needs two signatures and my wife is out of the country. It will end up paying retroactively for a crown my wife recently had installed in her mouth. Easy come...

Ha -- I rec'd a SECOND check yesterday, "reimbursing" me the amount of owed taxes I paid prior to them sending out my first stimulus check w/ my owed taxes deducted from the original $$$$$$$ SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS $$$$$$$ despite me having paid the owed taxes well in advance (more than 1 month?) prior to the check being cut. GOVERNMENT IN ACTION AWRIGHT

Woohoo! I guess I'll get a second check too! I thought that "we're deducting the amt of tax you owed" was bullshit if we'd already paid it.

Rock Hardy, Tuesday, 24 June 2008 18:51 (eleven years ago) link

ok so that date you get it based on your ss# did yall actually get it on yalls date?? cuz mine is june 27 but i wanna make sure i get it in time to pay the damn rent

and what, Tuesday, 24 June 2008 18:52 (eleven years ago) link

it might. it might not. the gov's wheels grind at their own pace and there's no hurrying them.

Sheeeit, I got mine back in May and I barely remember it, it was gone so fast...

kate78, Tuesday, 24 June 2008 18:56 (eleven years ago) link

I rec'd my first check within 7-10 days of the date I was sent (which I don't think was the date tied to my SSN).

David R., Tuesday, 24 June 2008 18:56 (eleven years ago) link

I kind of thought that L-T was out of the $600 refund bracket.

libcrypt, Tuesday, 24 June 2008 19:06 (eleven years ago) link

I'm in the $350 bracket, I think.

JUST SEND THE FUCKING CHECK IN THAT ENVELOPE ALREADY.

Finally it has happened to me
Right in front of my face
My feelin's can't describe it
Finally it has happened to me
Right in front of my face
And I just cannot hide it

Meeting Mr. Right, the man of my dreams
The one and only true love or at least it seems
With brown coco skin and curly black hair
It's just the way he looks at me, that gentle lovin' stare

Finally you come along
The way I feel about you it just can't be wrong
If you only knew the way I feel about you
I just can't describe him oh no no

CHORUS
CHORUS

It seemed so many times he seemed to be the one
But all he ever wanted was to have a little fun
But now you've come along and brightened up my world
In my heart I feel it I'm that special kind of girl

Finally you come along
The way I feel about you it just can't be wrong
If you only knew the way I feel about you
I just can't describe him oh no no

CHORUS
CHORUS

Finally
Ooooooooh finally yeah yeah
Oh

RAP: True love, a feelin' I never knew
Until you came into my life and now it's real
I never knew that I would find the time
Before you I thought love was blind

And my life was coastin' out my emotion
Too strong for words, you're set for devotion
A-pushin' me from mutual attraction
True love, the chemical reaction

Then my actions
Reflect those of a way to makin' this a better love
A never ending plan like man and wife
Flavourful to my life like a spice

Summon me to death, you're my big mean of protection
My one and only source of affection
So I'm puttin' all games behind me
I've been lookin' for the key to love and I've found it finally

CHORUS (to fade)

some dude, Tuesday, 8 July 2008 20:34 (eleven years ago) link

five months pass...

wow, i just got a letter from the IRS copping to the fact that they never sent me my stimulus check.

"we are required by law to mail the economic stimulus payment by dec. 31, 2008. we could issue the check by this date so you will note get the payment based on your 2007 tax account. however, you may be able to claim a credit on your 2007 federal return."

that's not quite as fun.
