Legal Alien: A Scotsman in Montreal

Tax is a wonderful thing

The best thing about taking 6 months off between jobs? Claiming the tax back that you've been overcharged! I've worked out I'm due just over 800GBP (1400USD or 2000 CAD) from the UK government and I think it was around 400GBP from the Canadian one! Almost makes those 2-3 months of unemployment whilst living with the parents worthwhile!

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm just away to browse through some yacht brochures.... but seriously, if you had a windfall of the same sort of scale, what would YOU spend it on? I'd say a holiday, but I've already planned/budgeted/booked a great round-the-world trip for August.... I don't need a new computer (though it'd be nice anyway).... I do like the look of those Ipod Minis though....
