Death, Taxes and Digital Entertainment

So I stopped by Circuit City after going to the gym tonight.

I needed to pick up a copy of TurboTax, in preparation for Monday.

This year's return should be fairly straightforward, unlike next year's -- I am pretty sure I should start weeping now in preparation for my 2006 return.

Circuit City had TurboTax Basic and Premiere, but they were all out of Deluxe, which is the one I needed of course.

However, I did get Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow and 'Million Dollar Baby' on DVD for under $20 bucks.

Keep in mind, I haven't even finished the first Splinter Cell yet, and my stack of unwatched DVDs is probably a foot and a half high by now.

So, I went next door to Target looking for TurboTax Deluxe.

They were out as well, though I did pick up the special collector's editions of 'Escape From New York' and 'Bubba Ho Tep', for $21.

So, in summary: No TurboTax. Three DVDs and one game that I will probably never get to, on top of 6 hours of 24 on tape that I haven't watched yet, plus about three weeks worth of photos that I still have to put up (including the ones from my birthday). And I still have to do my taxes.

It's a good thing Best Buy was already closed.

I'm trying to remember if I paid to download turbotax deluxe last year or not, but I like having the CD around, just in case. -- Joe
