So it's kind of like bumping up your tax-free threshold provided you actually spend it on acceptable purchases. Seems fair enough to me for NPOs.
Sorry, haven't logged in for a few days - but yeah, spot on.

There's not a whole lot of limitations on what you can spend the money on either, you just can't have it as cash - the money that goes onto my VISA (the non-entertainment one) can literally be used anywhere VISA is accepted, for anything except withdrawing cash. The only card that has limitations is the entertainment card, and I can't choose to have that money put on the unrestricted visa, I either want to accept the entertainment package as well or I choose to have that portion of my income taxed at the normal rate.

The good thing about the entertainment card is that it can also be used for accommodation and holiday packages, so even if you're not into dining out, you can use that money to pay for your accomms on an annual holiday or something.

Going through job applications is painful.. you can see who had their resume done professionally because they have great looking resumes but crap cover letters, and then there are the ones that have to tell you they're aboriginal in the first line as if that matters, or that they're trying to get back into the workforce after taking 10 years off to raise 6 kids, and give you all of their names.

Then of course the ones that apply that have zero experience in the role, thanks for wasting those precious few seconds of my day. You end up just being cut throat :lol:

Yep, it is a fun time, especially if you live in an area with a high unemployment level where people are applying for anything to keep their payments.
With the job I have out, I'm hoping that I get some good applicants. But also know that I will have a few that get thrown out without being read, and a few that are just trying to get into the country with a working visa.

On another note completely, damn my calf muscles are aching today after standing around at the GP most of yesterday. Not used to standing up for such long periods...

It would be amazing to be able to walk out the door and know I never needed to walk in another, but for now I'll settle for a few days off.

well ive been in some real bad pain over the last 7 weeks. particularly the left testicle.
ive had it ultrasounded, scanned, CT scans, 3 types of antibiotics, colonoscopy yesterday and still cant find what is causing me to nearly white out in pain.
could be a hernia, could still be a urinary tract infection, could be a pinched nerve, could be crohns disease. alot of specialists scratching their heads, while ive lost 6kg down to 49kg. no one knows what it is, which is the worst part of this (though the cost of ths various scans, drugs, antibiotics is now over 1000).
its REALLY hard working a full day and its slowing driving me nuts. im not enjoying anything at the moment

edit - the best thing about it, is my wife is amazing to me.

Jesus MT that sounds terrible, I knew a guy that had a twisted testicle or something once and that was pretty debilitating - I hope they find out what it is soon, and in the meantime you need to start eating some chocolate or something bro, 49kg? I could actually bench press you! Make sure your wife feeds you and you eat.

yeah that was the very first thing they tested me for, as it can kill you pretty quick. that wasnt it though alas.
i know i got to eat more but the various drugs and antiboitics and pain in general make me not eat much.

ive managed to get a fair bit of xbox game played in last few weeks which has been a nice side effect lol. Prey is great!

If it's a public holiday today, it doesn't feel like it... started with a trip to see the folks to see how they're going, followed by phase 1 of my reshuffling of furniture/contents so I can get back to functioning again. Lower back muscles had slight spasms afterwards so on with the heat pack for a while. Getting stuck into resume writing now.

Will continue with resume writing for most of tomorrow before starting phase 2 of my reshuffling... taking the contents off the second half of the furniture that needs moving. That includes disconnecting the PC and moving it up two levels. Might see if I sneak in some time in the pool between those two tasks to help relax those back muscles.

Haven't loaded up Diablo 3 in like 3 days and so far no withdrawal symptoms - lol

I got an email last night about too many attempts to log into my Epic Games account. I forgot I even had one, made it a while back when they gave away Shadow Complex for free. Couldn't for the life of me think of why anyone would want to try and crack that kind of account.

And then I remembered Fortnite is a thing.

So any news today, will it be classed as Fake News (and trigger people) or be labeled as April Fools Day news and be the joke that people intend it to be?

Nothing quite like being fully aware you're being manipulated but still being trapped.
I'm so tired of not being able to fight back without screwing over my household.

If something costs $400 on the PBS, I'd hate to imagine what the actual non PBS price is :o It's kind of funny, in order to be able to spend $400 p/m I'd have to cancel my private health insurance, from which I get zero benefit from at all.

Went and saw a movie today. I was about 13 minutes late by the time I sat down because I figured I had ages before kick-off like every other movie in recent years. But nope, saw 2-ish trailers and the movie was on. I remained sceptical for quite some time that it was in fact the movie and not another ad.
I really hope it wasn't just a fluke and they're actually cutting some of the fluff pre-movie.

Saw something like 6 trailers (as well as ads) when I went to the movies on Wednesday. Most of them looked decent for once - especially Isle of Dogs.
