BTW I apparently lost 4 pounds and 1% body fat by extreme calorie deficit.
It's not sustainable and probably won't last, but I feel happier anyhow!

If I ask for specifics (like "so BP and cholesterol were normal?") he says it's not my business.

This part just raises red flags for me.
SO's health and wellbeing is your business.
I've seen families reviewing a printout of a lab results and having conversations amongst themselves about how to make their lifestyle better e.g. if bad cholesterol levels are high then avoid purchasing butter, shrimp, and coconut oil; use egg whites, etc.

Good morning!

Stuck at amazing today with a pangram. But, much to my surprise, found a twofer.

coxing/graceful; ab_grp, I don't think my hints were useful as I couldn't explain either word.

Happy solving, all!

We all know about the snake-fight portion of your thesis defense, right? Yes, of course we do. But did you know that there is fanfiction based on this text? Because there is. This one, in particular, is brilliant, and has definitely been written by someone with personal experience in the snake-fight trenches.

Loved every bit of this but that finale was perfection.

This is so perfect! My Huggy for the win!

Big fan of injinjis here too. Otherwise, I tend to get blisters under my nails and that's just gross. And painful.

Poor lass. If I were there, I'd do it for you.

Any change with different brands of shoe that fit differently?

You enter the information from the W2 into the software (though some programs and employers will let you download the file directly). You do not mail it in.  (Remember that the IRS already has the information anyway!)

The eFile is done using electronic information directly to the IRS, neither email nor fax.  By using eFile, your information is entered directly into the IRS computers.  IF you mail it, someone has to transpose (or attempt to electronically read) the file, potentially causing errors. 

that is one of the reasons eFile is so much faster.

Thanks to all.   One more question-- I have never electronically filed taxes before.... how does one send in one's W2 forms when one does so? What are the security aspects to doing this?   Is e-filing done via email or fax?

ALH:

You have been busy!

I love chocolate mint! We have German thyme and lemon thyme (smells wonderful).

I hear you on the being sore part. I went to the garden today and my body hurts.
