I just took the week of Thanksgiving "off", but I ended up working a few hours due to my boss and I both being away from the office at the same time. I was planning on taking from the 18th of Dec off until New Years, but not sure if that's going to happen now. At least my company cashes us out on PTO at the end of the year.

W-9 is just a request for your tax ID number. It's pretty simple. I have tax customers on the side that issue me 1099's each year. In order to issue the 1099, they need to have a W9 with accurate information. You can print one off the IRS website if needed. Usually investments ask for them as well.

That is correct. It is based on Luke trying to rebuild the Jedi order and what happens to the republic after the empire falls from my understanding. They needed to keep most of the same main characters as it is a continuing story. Both Harrison Ford and Carrie Fischer were quoted in several articles stating they would be interested in continuing their roles. Have not heard anything about Singer. The articles didn't say that they were cast, only that they wanted to do it.

Now, add on to that the fact I also have to write training packages and there are another 4 technical manuals that are due at the same time, and you can feel my aggravation.

So, on the way in this morning I get stopped by a train at 20 after 5. At the ONE crossing between my house and work, which is 43 miles away. Then I get stuck behind someone who likes to drive in the left lane, so I switch to the right to go around him. HE SPEEDS UP to keep me from passing and I get stuck behind a smaller truck driving in the right lane. At this point I am questioning his parentage and wondering if I could find the fleas of a 1000 camels to start my retribution. So I slow back down and get in the left lane. At which point said person of questionable parentage slows down and matches the speed of the truck in the right lane.

At this point I put on my Charlie Brown Christmas music from my iphone and try not to commit vehicular manslaughter.

Oh and I have a meeting from 3-4 this afternoon. Seriously? Who schedules a meeting from 3-4 on a Thursday?

Can I go home? My XBOX and Skyrim are lonely.

Thanks for the vent, feel much better now, (not really) but you get the point.

Matt
Matt,

I hope you are able to find a "happy place" to escape to sometime today

For my DD, it breaks my heart and maybe her mom feels like DD is better off like it is (holding my opinion out) I don't know what her deal is, thank you, had to air that out for a min
I think you have every right to feel that way. It's not really fair to your DD. Whatever the reason, I am sending prayers that it gets resolved for your DD sake. I can't imagine that I would not spend every opportunity with my children if I were not able to live with them. We got your back! Feel free to vent.

I'm pretty sure we established a few days ago that leaving work to go home and play Xbox was a DisDads approved activity.

Sorry the commute was bad. People like that are just looking for some attention.

We must have read the same articles. I know that a lot of the die hard fans won't be happy. They treat the expanded universe novels like scripture and any movies that conflict with that will be bashed.

At least you get a bonus instead of a jelly of the month club membership.

Still having a hard time with the age gaps of the first three movies - Padme, Annikan, and Kenobi. Then, when you add in the 4th with the really old Kenobi and Luke and Leia are twins? Maybe we won't notice that any of them aged 20 plus years.

I agree. We did read some of the books and my DS loves to watch the Clone Wars cartoons (can I call them cartoons?). The die hard fans will just have to realize that without being able to market for a billion dollars in ticket sales, the movies would not be coming. You need to general audiences to do that.

From the articles, this trilogy is supposed to be a bette group of story lines than the other 6. I hope that's true. If not, all you'll hear is "Disney ruined it". Not really an open mind going in.
