Are You Watching Revenge Yet? 
If you're not watching Revenge yet, you should be. It's still going strong.

If you are... then I'm wondering whether you were also playing Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" in your mind during the end of the last episode.

heh. I don't think anyone can ever get shoved off a raft ever again without that song playing in the sub-conscious. Does that make me insensitive?

Congrats to Danica! 
Wow. Danica Patrick on pole for the Daytona 500. I did NOT see that one coming! I'm pretty sure this is the most significant thing she's done so far in NASCAR. Congrats to her!

Time To Try New Tax Software? TurboTax Will Help! 
This was just too amusing to not post.

I was having a chat about tax software and someone mentioned that TurboTax might be worth a shot. Right now all my tax history is kept in some software called ProFile so my first thought was whether or not I can easily convert those files.

I went to the TurboTax website and right at the top is a box that says "Ask a question, get an expert answer". Sounds like exactly what I need!

So here is what happened:

-----------------------------
Your Question
“Convert profile history”

Our Expert Answer
The vehicle plug-in conversion credit is 10% of the cost of converting any motor vehicle (new or used) to a qualified plug-in electric drive motor vehicle. The maximum credit is $4,000 per vehicle. The property must be placed in service after February 17, 2009 through 2011. TurboTax will calculate your allowable credit.
------------------------------

And that is all. Just that answer. Lol! Well there you have it. Probably not for me...

Motive 
I watched the new show, Motive, last night and wasn't impressed. I was really looking forward to seeing it as they've been hyping it up for weeks and the premise is interesting. It even started off really well. You immediately find out who the killer and the victim are with great big labels. OOOH! Intrigue!!

But then it just sort of fell apart. It was a bit boring through the middle and I just didn't much care about any of the main players. They weren't all that interesting.

They gave the main character an interesting car, so that was cool. It's an 80's Olds Cutlass and appears to be in near mint condition.

Of course, they ruined the coolness by having her son use it in a drag race later in the episode and managing only a mid-17's quarter mile time. They make it out to be quite an accomplishment, but it's really a sad effort and nothing to be proud of.

Normal viewers wouldn't think anything of it and just take their word for this being a good run, but come on... how hard would it have been to either make a proper pass with the car, or just completely fake it on the scoring boards?

TV Land Update! 
I just felt like throwing some tidbits in here.

I gave up on Revolution and deleted it from my PVR before the holidays. No more wasting time on that crap.

Flashpoint is done, and that's sad. It was one of the best shows on TV and if you never watched it, I highly recommend it. All of it. It was a great series all the way though!

Go On is still funny, and I've actually added it to my PVR schedule. I'm really enjoying that. I'm also watching Don't Trust the B*** in Apt. 23 on a regular basis. It's ridiculous and silly. Give it a shot.

Elementary is still one of the best new shows and I'm still enjoying it. If you liked House, then definitely get on this one!

For some reason I'm still watching The Office, though it definitely jumped the shark years ago. I don't know why I'm still watching it. Nobody needs my opinion on this one though. If you've watched it from the beginning then you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't, then there's no way you should start now.

I guess that's about it. I mean... hockey is coming back... but who cares? Maybe I'll care again next season. We'll see.
