I for one welcome our ape overlords!
Well, as Dr. Zaius said in the comments of my last post "it's time for a new post already", and when he's right, he's right. The lack of posting is a simple matter of time management.
You see, I work for an accounting firm, and for the next four months we go through our 'busy season', tax time for you laymen. This means long hours and six day work weeks for your humble poster, which, while I resent the time away from my little friend (the little guy), it does pay me overtime...I am one of the few employees in the firm that gets overtime, since I am not an accountant, I am in more of an administrative role.
I take the boy with me to work on Saturdays now as the firm provides free day care on the extra workday for employees with families, very nice perk that, it's just too bad the wee tyke hates it so much. A co-workers daughter who is a little over 3 years old, and in that precocious 'truth telling' phase of development, said it best (or worst, depends on who heard it), when I asked her how my son was doing down there and if she played with him...."Yeah, he cries so much", "Aww, why was he crying?", her mother asked, "He cries because he misses his daddy". I almost started crying myself, right there in the office.
It's not all bad though, I can go down to the day care room and see him at any point during the day, and I even grab him sometimes and we walk around the office doing my rounds...he likes that. We have lunch together, though it's hard to get him to eat in that hectic environment, it's always nice to spend time with him.
So there you have it, that's what I have been up to, hope you folks aren't going into any busy season yourselves, and remember to file your taxes early for prompt payment of your refund!
Now get off my back you damn dirty ape!!!
Just kidding of course, I DO welcome our ape overlords, damn site better than the current overlords, that's for sure!
