footnotes

1. a copy of a check to prove that yes, i did pay my state taxes last year.

2. the savings account has been dwindling as i’ve been keeping money in the checking account to cover bills. i just got around to reviewing my savings account, and found that if i don’t keep 500.00 in it, i have to pay this 3.00 fee each month. that’s insane when i’m only making 0.04 in interest on it each month. even if i had a lot of money in it, i’d only be making 1% interest, vs. 1.8% in my domini money market account or 5% in a federal note. i’ve closed the account. this is a great example of losing money through simply not paying attention; for years, there’s been no reason for me to have this account. i just set it up in 1989 because that’s what the lady at the bank suggested, and for 13 years, i haven’t even thought
about whether it’s serving me or i’m serving it. terrible.

3. this is one of the two domains i have registered through yahoo! domains. i should switch them to dotster, like the rest; dotster only charges 15.00.

4. 54.99 — replacement screen for the visor. bad me for dropping it, but good me for installing a piece of replacement glass myself instead of paying 100.00 for a new visor. 83.99 — 8-port switch. i’ll be getting a 30.00 rebate on this.

5. drive it forever, a book about taking care of the car.

6. triple gah!! i didn’t see the sign telling me not to park there after 4:00pm, and had to get my car out of the impound lot. bad!

7. yikes!

8. nothing out for convenience; good!

9. stocking up on soap, etc. at dollar general.

10. photocopies.

11. sending my old laptop to the osdn office in acton.

12. i wanted to pay someone to do it this year to make sure i did everything right with respect to the house purchase. if i pay someone again next year, it won’t be h&r block; the service was horrible.

13. including the final bill for carey street. w00t!

14. i reviewed my plan; this should be down to around 30.00 next month.

15. 20.00 for a copy of the title to the colt, 14.00 for an emissions inspection on the golf.

16. dbz video and support cushions.

17. yay!
