What's the deal with the Farrows not acknowledging that Sinatra is Ronan Farrow's father?
Likely! Mia never seemed Woody's type, inasmuch as she wasn't progeny or dependent.

I'm grateful that the donut shop and liquor store between my home and office are both essential businesses.

Unrelated: You being back here seems to coincide with IRS pushing back Tax Day. Got a lot of free time on your hands now?

Oh, not really. I took a job where we strictly do government audits. I'm out of the tax game except for weekends I go back to my hometown and see about 150 people or so. But life as an auditor is way less stressful than the tax season. Normal hours and all that, and when our work is done, we are done. It's a good change.
I was thinking I would be around more because of...baseball. Now I'll probably be here more because of the lack of it.

I know I didn't have to yet; but I went ahead and paid my taxes today. You're welcome America.

I hope you don't end up like me. Paying my taxes was the beginning of some decently bad luck for me. I figured that with the stay at home order, I wouldn't be spending money on sports or bars so I paid mine early while I had the cash and within two weeks I hit a pothole which blew out a tire. Not a huge deal at first because I needed new tires soon anyway. So instead of waiting another month or so for new tires, I put on four new ones the next Friday afternoon. Six hours later... I hit a deer and now my car is all messed up still. I don't have full coverage and don't want to spend the cash right now to fix it so I'm stuck only being able to drive during the daylight since only one headlight works. Thankfully I was able to cut off a small section of the fender with and angle grinder and that allowed me to fit the regular wheel and tire back on the car so at least I am mobile enough to hit the grocery store from time to time.

If it wasn't for this stupid pandemic, I wouldn't have paid my taxes early so I would have had the cash to fix the car if I had hit a deer and I wouldn't have been running the errand that I was when I hit the pothole because I would have been in the office working so I wouldn't have put new tires on when I did and even without the other stuff, I would have taken an Uber to the bar on a Friday night instead of taking a late night drive to just get out of the apartment when I hit the deer. Everything is Covid-19's fault!!!!
