Tell me if this makes sense to you:
I have student loans for school. These are federal loans and either will generate interest when I’m done with school or are already generating interest, depending on type. My company reimburses me 80% of my educational costs and [after an initial $5,000 tax-free allotment per year] any reimbursement payments are taxed. So, basically, I am paying the federal government in order to repay them. I can’t help but feel screwed here.
In less the-government-is-screwing-me news, over the weekend I purchased Batman: Arkham Asylum and Guitar Hero 5, the latter of which I didn’t even know had come out already. I am behind the times! The clerk checking me out tried to sell me Rock Band: The Beatles and it was all I could do to keep from saying, “Puh-lease. Go peddle your crazy someplace else.” Rock Band is simply an inferior product. If you prefer it to Guitar Hero I won’t hold it against you, though. Okay, that’s a lie. I will hold it against you. You and your substandard decision-making skills.

Excited About: getting my indoor countertop grill. I am having an End of Summer Cookout Extravaganza on Saturday with turkey hotdogs, whole wheat buns, and apple pie! I’m not sure where the “extravaganza” part comes in–maybe with the potato salad.
