  1. Of death and taxes


    I did my taxes for 2004 yesterday, first time ever doing so (with the help of my dad). Thanks to the Ontario Sales Tax Credit, I get a refund. This also didn't apply to me . . . I'm too young. The form wasn't that hard to fill out, because most of the form did not apply to me.

    That wasn't too helpful for my mathematics skills, which will be tested soon in a May…

  2. More Doctor Who gushing

Although I did not download MSN 7 while it was in beta, now that it is the official version I think it is prudent to download it. I haven't explored half the features, but we'll see how they…

  5. Doctor Who?


    I watched the CBC's premiere of the BBC's new Doctor Who series last night. Sadly, I've never had the opportunity to see any of the previous series, but I do think this one is . . . okay. I haven't really seen a lot of British television before, so it was a little surprising. But overall I did like the storyline, if the episode itself wasn't that great. The teaser for next week…
