Taxes and Diamonds

Sucks about the De Beers settlement. We bought my only diamonds while outside the US--my engagement ring in England and my earrings in Jamaica. Rats. But that must mean their pricing was perfectly fair and equitable for the rest of the world, right?

And Congress was late passing legislation having to do with varied parts of the tax code. So even though I filed last night, our return won't be processed for another few weeks. I wonder if we'd get that much leeway if we had a really good reason for filing late?

She may be a stranger who spends all winter
Bringing the homeless blankets and dinner,
A regular Nobel Peace Prize winner,
But I really hate her.
I'll think of a reason later.
