To make up for the loss of Old Wallety, fate has rewarded me by allowing me to make a killing on our tax returns. I've always ended up with a refund, but this year we really did well for ourselves. Man, being married is awesome. If you aren't sure about it yourself, I strongly urge you to consider it for tax reasons. It's hard to beat a $17,500 deduction if you're a student. Good luck making that much money in two years.

And now, for no particular reason, a picture of a pile of money:

Lost my wallet today, probably at Kiwanis Park. If you found it, I'd appreciate it if you'd return it. It's camouflage colored with a little red Quiksilver logo on it. It has $60 in it, but you can keep that if you want it. Really, I'd like my debit card and my driver's license.

Oh, and my health insurance cards. Heaven forbid I get in a debilitating accident the moment I lose my health insurance cards.

I'm sitting here listening to Yann Tiersen's soundtrack to Goodbye Lenin!, and I can't for the life of me figure out why I haven't seen this movie yet. It's fantastic music. Tiersen is amazing, team. Awesome. If you haven't heard his stuff, you really ought to. Go dredge it up on imeem or Pandora or something. Or go watch Goodbye Lenin! or Amelie or something. You won't regret it.

No one out there happens to have a copy of Goodbye Lenin!, do they?

Elder Carp update - apparently he was backing out of a Subway restaurant and hit his companion with the car.

Residents of Miami, lock your doors and stay inside until he gets transferred.

I'm sitting here at work playing with a spreadsheet, and it turns out that my right foot is sweaty. Just my right foot, though. My left foot is still nice and dry. I tried taking off my shoes to help air out my feet, but that didn't seem to do a whole lot. It's the weirdest thing. I'm completely at a loss.

And why did I feel the need to post something like this publicly? These are the sorts of questions that are better left unasked.

Gaaah! We just finished watching the first season of How I Met Your Mother on DVD, and Marshall and Lily just broke up! They were engaged! For like years and years! And Ted and Robyn hooked up! Freaking finally! And now we don't know what happens because we don't have the second season! WE DON'T HAVE THE NEXT SEASON! GAAAAAAH!!!!!

In conclusion, TV on DVD is a bad thing because it removes the need for patience.

This is a little early for Pi Day (3/14), but I'll post it anyway so everyone can start getting ready:

On Pi Day, you eat pie. It's as simple as that. I routinely celebrate the day with my roommates. One year, we even made it a point to each eat a radian's worth of pie. Marvelous stuff. I'll be sure to recognize the holiday this year. Don't you be caught unaware. Purchase your pie today.

At work today, I was notified of a sad incident in which three LDS missionaries are being prosecuted on vandalism charges after photos surfaced online picturing them defacing a Catholic church. Apparently the missionaries were seen pretending to preach from an altar and holding up a statue with its head broken off. The full story can be seen here.

Obvious remarks about taking your calling seriously aside, this brings up the two most important rules of crime:
  1. If you're really going to insist on committing a crime, don't document yourself doing it. This includes photos, videos, memos, and so on. (Applicable to something as small as vandalism to something as large as Watergate.)
  2. If you decide to ignore Rule 1, don't post the information publicly. Especially not on the Internet.
I'm not sure whether to be happy or sad that we live in a world with so many stupid criminals in it. On the one hand, I'd be happy for them if they were at least intelligent enough to get away with something as simple as this, but then again, I'm not so sure I'd like to have more intelligent criminals running around.
