    Building a new gaming computer (waiting on the parts to be delivered today), and letting the wife go on a shopping spree.

    Mine is going toward a new mattress. Looking at a Sleep Number. Considering the regular mattresses I tried that were comfortable were around the same price as one of those, I'm seriously considering it.

    Pay off a few debts, a Samsung 840 Pro SSD, Audio-Technica headphones, and maybe some clothes for the family.

    A Nexus 10 (my Acer Iconia a500's Tegra 2, while still relevant with its 1.5GHz clock speed, it showing its age in its instruction sets and ROM) and the rest to paying debts.

    Get a Tempurpedic. My parents had a Sleep Number. It's just an air mattress. Seriously it's the same thing you can get at Wal-mart for like $40. I'm not even kidding. I bought a Tempurpedic a few months ago for $1400 and love it. Pricy for a Queen, but well worth it. I lay in that thing sometimes and let it vibrate my troubles away. It's awesome.

    As for me, I'm going to figure out how I screwed up so much that I'm getting a refund and figure out how to adjust my with holding so it doesn't happen again.

    I would wait on the N10. With Google I/O right around the corner, we're going to see new units releasing with better hardware (most likely).

    For the same price (or less), I'd rather have a little firmness adjustability. The $1300 one has a 1" pillow-top so it doesn't feel like an air mattress. My other consideration was to get the [link=http://www.hamptonhomecollection.com/productGroup.aspx?mattress]same mattress[/link] as they use at Hampton Inn hotels. I stayed in one and had some of the best nights of sleep there. Those are made by Serta, not sure what's different, it may not be the same mattress I had (that was 2 years ago), and they're in the same price range.

    Is this some US clique thing, or should I know what this thread is about?

    Mine will be going toward bills. Won't be enough left for anything fun as I didn't work much. Every little bit I get paid down I feel better and better so it's all good=)

    This has to do with US Tax Refunds

    We get a refund if we 'overpay' our taxes for the year. Last year, I got a 3USD check from my state government. Thankfully, my Federal refund is larger.


    I just got one for 0.03USD from my other bank... What?

    You get a Tempurpedic you won't need to adjust it. The thing is awesome. I could lay in it all day long, but when the house gets repo'd I'd probably be in trouble.

    I also have a temperpedic. I've had it for 8 years and it's still as comfortable as the day I bought it.
    I'm saving my refund for a rainy day.

    I really like my Sleep Number. It's quite a bit different than a regular air mattress. I had a Tempurpedic and found it to be to hot for me.

    I just did mine. I found that I don't have 1099's from all my investing accounts because eTrade is apparently not putting them out until the very last day they have to legally post them. Ugh. I put in estimated numbers based on last year. I ended up owning $230 to the feds and getting $130 back from the feds so it's basically a wash for me. I'm cool w/that.

    I never understood what benefit a company gets from waiting until the very last day. It's not like they're cutting you a check and are trying to make every little bit of interest they can off that money. I worked for a company that would wait until Jan. 31 to mail W2's out, my current employer has them available electronically sometime in the first 2 weeks of January.

    Especially in these days of electronic transactions, there's absolutely ZERO reason year-end financial documents can't be available on Jan. 2.

    Thanks, "sleep temperature" is of concern to me. I often sleep with a fan blowing on me, even into early winter, and I have A/C in my place.

    I agree with you. There is some logic in some sort of a delay. On Jan 1 you probably haven't been paid for all of the previous year. By the time mid-January rolls around though the previous fiscal year is closed. All paychecks have been cut and all interest has been posted. I have no clue why companies wait 'til the last minute. I'm with you. There really is no excuse. The end of January at the latest is when it should all be online.

    From my personal experience, I've never had an issue with this. You don't really sink into the mattress you lay on top of it. I've heard this complaint before, but I've never had a problem myself. YMMV.
