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!

Sure you jump when Zaius asks you too, if it had been me, you'd have told me to go eat a parsnip! :)

GETkristiLOVE said...

Will do... btw, have you seen my W2s?

Devilham said...

Dr. Monkey - Ahh, but it would be a delicously prepared parsnip puree, surrounded by pan-seared Taylor Bay scallops, and drizzled with an apple cider buerre blanc.

You wouldn't mind it so much!

GetKristiLove - There in the kitchen drawer, next to the thing.

Dr. Zaius said...

Ack! I had not expected the Spanish Inquisition! Still, it is understandable that with all of those long hours at work that you might have some trouble posting to your blog. I apologise.

I promise that your ape overlords will spare you for scientific experimentation. Probably.

By the way, do you know if there is a tax deduction for chocolate cake?

Devilham said...

If you are eating cake for work, then you can sign it off as a business expense I suppose

I'm just the IT guy!! I aint no accountant!!!

Whiskeymarie said...

Can I deduct $$ spent on costumes for blogging?
How about snacks consumed whilst blogging?

I feel that your close proximity to the tax guys qualifies you to answer all of my pressing tax questions.
Thank you.
