So Naturally My Only Choice Seems to be to Move to England

I have to move to England soon, because my taxes were an absolute nightmare.

DJ Kirkby
said that she USED to file taxes in Canada, but now that she lives in England, she doens't have to. So England it is. Besides, my Sweet Pea wants to be surrounded by English accents, so it all works out for the best.

The complexity of my taxes wasn't helped any by the fact that when I opened up ANY and EVERY pdf, the only thing that would display was this picture of me sitting by the side of the road when my car broke down awhile back:

The Guy fixed adobe for me though (and my car). So now if I try and open up a pdf, it still shows this picture. But if I make a bunch of unhappy noises and then reload, it magically magically shows me the pdf.

I don't have too many more pictures this week, except this somewhat overzealous seeming ad:

If all goes as planned, you will be able to read this and I won't. I'd say why, but that would ruin the mystery and stuff. It mostly has to do with the not-having-internet-thing that I mentioned in my last post. I will read everything soon, when I am reunited with internet!

So if one answers the posed question with "Yes, my water tastes like crap" and you call the number and say "Yes, my water tastes like crap" does the person on the other end say "Ha ha! You eat poop! Crap eater!!" and then hang up? Cause that would be hil.ar.ious.

Tracy said...

Well that is a beautiful picture of you, so its not all bad ;)
So happy my water doesn't taste like crap...oh wait, I don't really drink water only pop :)

Staci said...

What a sweet pic of you!

BloggerFather said...

The weird thing is that this picture pops up every time I open a pdf too!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Cid - That's probably EXACTLY what happens!!!!!!

Thank you Tracy! And let me give you the sound advice I dole out to my preschoolers on a regular basis: Drinking water gives your INSIDES a bath! :-)

Thank you Staci!

Bloggerfather - It's a little inconvenient, isn't it? :-)

Nicki said...

Hope your tax woes are over, your computer comes around and starts being agreeable, and mostly that your water does not, in fact, taste like crap so you can avoid that awkward call.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Thanks Nicki! Actually my computer problems stemmed from being out of the country, but I am now reunited with internet and my water tastes fine, although I understand that there is enough radiation or something in it that doctors discourage pregnant women from drinking it.

Slyde said...

ive never seen anyone looking so happy that their car broke down!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Slyde - Well, it wasn't that bad, because I have triple A. Plus, I was in walking distance of a restaurant, so I wasn't going to starve. And I was pretty sure it was the battery, even though this guy that helped me before I called triple A practically blew up the car trying to prove to me that it wasn't.

Janet said...

It is a great picture, sitting by the side of the road. I don't think I'd be looking that perky if my car broke down! On the subject of England, I think there are many reasons to move there. Anything spoken with an English accent automatically sounds more intelligent, don't you think???

Sara said...

I think I'd have to start laughing about now.. or I'd be crying! At least you look great.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Janet - My Sweet Pea is in total agreement with you...although she says they sound "more awesome!". ;-)

Thanks Sara!

Alison said...

Hil.ar.ious

Margaret said...

You do look happy in spite of the circumstances. :)

Marlene said...

You are such a pretty lady!

Laughed when I saw the crappy water sign...heehee!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Thanks Alison!

Margaret - It helps to have triple A!!!!

And thanks Marlene! I hope you have non-crappy water!

Maria said...

I'd love to live in Europe, and taxes are as good an excuse as any! I can't wait for your Israel pictures. Israel is definitely on my bucket list.

Marlee said...

I say have a blast in England, and hopefully and tax trouble will work out. I would love to go to England, I hope it all works out for you!

Sorry your car broke down but I really like that pic of you! And I'm also glad my water doesn't taste like crap lol!

It seems that the better they make technology and the internet, the worse it is to use. Sometimes I long for the days of DOS and just text on the screen.

As for the sign...I think we as Americans have to high an expectation. When we were kids we drank water out of the garden hose and it tasted like crap, but we loved it, because the alternative was dying of thirst on a hot day.

I am moving to Mexico.

Andrea @ The Creative Junkie said...

Seriously, I'd never know your car was broken down by that picture - you are entirely too happy. I don't think there exists a picture of me when my car is broken down because when my car is broken down, I'm not happy and when I'm not happy, there had better not be a camera around because it's liable to be shoved down the nearest esophogus that is not attached to my body.

Love that sign!

Mz-Cellaneous said...

I could think of worse places to live than England. That'd kinda be awesome.

My water doesn't taste like crap, mainly because I filter the entire house lol.

Arizaphale said...

If you think English accents sound 'intelligent', listen to someone from Birmingham.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Maria - I can't wait for my Israel pictures either! I was a little overwhelmed, but I finally decided on plowing through them day by day, so I am almost done getting through day one and then I will have them up!

Thanks Marlee! When I move there, I'll let you know how the college costs compare! :-)

Thanks Suzy! And yeah, me too! I'm glad your water doesn't taste like crap! Because that would not even really be water, probably...

Lotus - Yeah, but we'll probably get cancer later in life from the PCBs in the hose...KIDDING! Ok, not that much kidding. Mexico it is! Oh wait...you can't even drink the water there whether it tastes like crap or not...

Andrea - It wasn't that bad, because we were in walking distance of a restaurant. :-) :-) :-)

MzCellaneous - Definitely the way to go!

Arizaphale - Alabama? :-) KIDDING!
