Annoyances:

The CDMA Palm Treo 700wx i am using at the moment has to be returned tomorrow.
I need surgery, and even privately, I have to wait.
My partner, when on parental leave, gets the same base rate of payment as someone who pays far less tax than she does, and yet she has to pay her USUAL tax rate on it (i.e. she gets LESS in the hand than lower tax brackets, because she pays MORE tax). Its just so wrong.

Good things:

Bleh

Well... that and we are having a baby!! w00t !!
