Happy Tax Day | 04/15/09
If somehow you haven't seen this graph that shows how the government spends money you should check it out. If you ever wonder why DC is such a dump, you can see our allocation from your state-livers: it's right above the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The taxes we pay as residents here are absolutely ridiculous. Keeping the homeless off the mall requires significant funding so yeah, you're welcome. There are a lot of scary numbers on that graph. Seriously scary. Srsly.
Last night I went to Galaxy Hut with Annie and Sam. Somehow we were there for like five hours. I also had a screaming match at the post office (which gets more funding than DC) with some woman. I was so enraged by her that I felt like I was recording the voice-over for a cartoon snuff film. I didn't realize my city-vocabulary had come back after just a year of living here.
Speaking of living here...tick-tock.
