Quiet Stimulus

I just got my direct deposit notice by email and said "Huh, that's slightly more than it was two weeks ago. Did I get a very small raise for some reason?" Comparing side-by-side with last paycheck, I found the difference: federal taxes were about $20 less. "Oh yeah, a cut in payroll taxes were part of the stimulus plan." Maybe I'll celebrate by buying... uh... lunch?

I'd love to help the economy, but since I'm putting all my stuff in storage in a month, acquiring new things isn't very attractive. I suppose I could eat out more often, but then I wouldn't have a bowl of left over curry when I'm running short on time. One thing on my to-do list is to pick some non-profit organizations for donations, since they're probably hurting right now.

Make Your Own:

1 - Name of band: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random

2 - Tile of album: last four or five words of the last quote on http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3

3 - Album cover: third picture on http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days

4 - Assemble in photoshop or paint or whatever

1 came from Stetson University Campus Historic District. I assume the band formed while in school and wanted a name that would make people say "That's a weird name for a band."

2 is the end of "A loud voice cannot compete with a clear voice, even if it's a whisper." -- Barry Neil Kaufman

3 is from nikkiethh and is a great fit for the album title.

4 was the GIMP because GraphicConverter didn't have very crisp text when flattening.
