i managed to lower my taxes by $700, before i realized i made a mistake (forgot to declare my capital gains). nevertheless, i still managed to save $600. i also helped my aunt do her taxes. fortunately it was pretty easy, and i even managed to get her a state refund.
instead of thinning out the tomato seedlings, i transplanted a few to empty cups. since these will eventually live outside, i figured any extras i can just give them away once the weather gets warm enough to plant in the garden. i noticed this a while back, but i think the nasturtium flowers that are developing into seeds, each bundle actually contains 3 seeds. when they'll fully ripen i still don't know, but i hope soon enough so that once my other seedlings start to grow, i can reclaim the shelf space.
tonight was the second episode of BSG. even though it's still early in this final season - dare i say it? - the show is getting sort of lame. it follows a BSG formula: characters talking to imaginary figures in their heads, a couple of emotionally charged scenes, one or two shocker, and then a heart stirring ending that involves either tears or applause. i'll still watch it regardless of the suck factor, but it feels like the final seasons of the sopranos, when the show was totally crap but people kept watching because they were used to it.
