What your tax dollars are paying for

My kickin’ new backpack, that’s what!
But, oh yeah, I can’t get it yet because REI is being dumb and won’t let me come pick it up if it’s paid for by someone else’s credit card. Something lame about credit card fraud… I dunno. So I think I’m just going to get it online or something.
My weekly hotel stays and per diem are also all paid. I get like $49 for food per day, which I barely even use because I have this weird thing with restaurants and I usually end up eating not much or only raw vegetables if I can get away with it. But I am always STARVING at lunchtime. This past week I ate almost an entire block of cheese in two days. MMMM… cheese. So I guess I could say the money goes towards my groceries too.
PLUS! Our entire office building got brand new computers this week. I set mine up today and it took me allllll day to get it to work. I even had to stay an hour later than I was planning. Guess that means an hour off for me next week! And the computer is huge. It has a 300 GB hard drive or something ridiculous like that. Man it is heavy!
