Apropos to that, I accidentally drove over a Philadelphia Mariott hotel pen. It must have fallen out of my pocket and I didn't notice until later when I found it on the driveway somewhat crushed up. It still writes though.
Ordered a free duffle bag from NFO Survey. I've been accumulating points there for quite a while, so I might as well take advantage of the rewards. Funny thing is most of the surveys there didn't apply to me, but I got the points anyway after answering "No" a few times. So I don't know if I'm helping them much at all.
After entering more tax info that arrived in the mail, the tax refund meter is now at... get ready for this... -$2,343. However, I think I'm nearly done with the 1099s, so it's not going to get much more negative. Then I can start figuring in tax credits and deductions.
