What? No more whining? 5 things.

1. I feel a bit better today.

2. Ya'll, don't pass out or nothin', but I'm wearing a skirt today! With tights and chukkas, but still, a skirt. I think it's a bit too long even with the chukkas and pulling it up to my ribcage (under my turtleneck, you can't see that I pulled it up so high). Skirts make me look stumpy unless they're above the knee and this is just below, even pulled up. I think it would be too complicated to get this one hemmed, though, it's stretchy.

3. Last night's gym was my 91st visit since I started the health insurance rebate-thing. After 120 visits, I get a rebate on part of my gym membership. I did the elliptical at level 10, then four different weight machines for my upper body. I'm weakest in biceps and pressing weights over my head.

4. I think I have successfully resisted spending $386 on the most lovely Italian (I think? Brand is Momo) wingtip spectators I have ever seen or tried on, that I probably shouldn't have even tried on because it was just painful in my heart. I will sublimate and buy a pair of Bass spectators which cost $60. Plus I have a $25 coupon. I think the spectators will be instead of the bright blue Chucks.

5. Last night I watched some eps of The Dresden Files tv show while I typed my 2010 tax deductions into a spreadsheet. By the time I got to the binder clip of postage receipts, I stopped; I already had more deductions than I'd received in writing income for the year, since I only had half the writing income I'd expected back when I attended BookExpo America and RWA National, my two most expensive conferences. One more task out of the way!

You mention wearing a skirt but don't post a pic as proof? Hmph.

That would be going too far. Your brains might explode.

If writing is not your sole source of income, then keep on logging those deductions. A business -- which includes writing -- is allowed to show a loss for two years out of five as of last time I checked the IRS regs re my own business. If you have an overall loss on the writing on Schedule C, it will offset some income from your other sources and lower your taxes.

Luckily, I have someone else doing my taxes for me.
