    To quote Charles Barkley: Half of it on hookers and blow, the other half I'll waste.

    Not getting one so no blow.

    After the week I've had, this may be a good start.
    Screw waiting for the stimulus check. Let's get this done pronto.

    You know, you can get high without a government check paying for it.

    How do you think we are going to get the real economy back on track if you refuse to buy blow with all of that money you've squirreled away?

    I think that will depend in large part on when we actually see the money.

    If you filed a tax return for 2018 or for this year already, it'll be three weeks, according to Mnuchin. If not, could be as long as four months.

    Thanks, I hadn't looked at it. I probably should have phrased that more along the line of "It depends on what is happening when we get the money". We'll probably just put it in the bank and sit on it as an emergency fund, although we might spring for one of the new Ipad Pros for my wife.

    And as I said before, a lot depends on what is going on around us.

    We had to spring for a new $1,000 laptop so I can work from home because my work ran out of laptops, and my wife needed her's for her work. So we'll pay off that purchase.

    After that, save some, and pay down my main credit card a bit more.

    That's McClatchy-esque.

    I'd like a second monitor (well, a new iMac wouldn't hurt, either), but screw it if the company won't provide me one. I'll chug along working at 80 percent efficiency.
