Happy New Year

Hi All,

Thinking of you guys.  My absence has been largely due to me starting a new job in October. I’m now on the finance end of my previous operations role. What that means is that I frequently stare at an Excel sheet with a “what the heck” sort of look. Its been 3 months and things have calmed a bit. I found the ground underfoot and my days working from home look like this….

Happy New Year!

    (Sounding a lot like James Stewart) That there is swell feline.

    Still…Give the cat an inch, he’ll take a mile. Or several furlongs, at least.
    Just started a new job myself. Some sense is being made, but a few things are less than clear.

    You’ll be fine. You’ve got the right assistant/overlord. That’s half the battle.

    @Couldn’t Stand the Weather: I tried to retrieve my mouse from under him and he started to bite me. But otherwise he is a good supervisor.

    I see that the cat is well trained, since he is sitting next to the keyboard instead of on it.

    @Little Red Rising:
    Or perhaps not so well trained. At least you have a trackpad.

    Happy New Year! You also may want to get that “tried to bite me” thing reduced. Ya bites, ya lose your desk sitting privileges. Eventually, they accept that to do x, you canna do y.

    @ruemara: he never really bites…just threatens to. definitely doesn’t break the skin.

    @Little Red Rising:

    Red Rising: I want the mouse!
    Feline Overlord: You can’t HANDLE the mouse!!

    Sorry. I love that movie.
    It’s so typical… According to the cat, the desk is his. You just happen to be allowed to sit there, on occasion.

    Resistance is futile.

    ETA: That there is A swell feline.
    Typing skills are fading with age, I fear.

    @Little Red Rising: Might have been a reflex since you were wrestling with the Sacred Belly?

    He is certainly a handsome boy!

    @Insomniac: we frequently refer to him as “the Sideler” since he is not there and then appears when you open closet doors and close them again.

    @Little Red Rising: You haz Boss Kitteh. You must do what Boss Kitteh demands at all times. This is highly relevant to Schrödinger Kitteh’s interests.

    Also too: KITTEH!!!

    Happy New Year, LRR!

    I’ve had supervisors who felt they had to hang over me every second, but none so attractive to look at as your guy…

    The foot is not healing so I’m camped out on the couch. The kids have queued up a bunch of movies and we are just hanging out together.

    Happy new year to everyone.

    Even if you don’t have time to blog, you can always keep us happy with kitteh pics.

    Heh, indeed.

    For that comment, I should charge the too big to fail banks (fingers mouth area with a certain digit) ONE MILLION dollars!

    I have had it with my task for the day; got Brain Stew like Green Day. Time to GTFO before the stress causes a need for a certain jacket with problematic sleeves.

    Can’t give in to my work related malaise until BHO finishes prezidentin’ in 2017. The winger uber-conniptions are the perfect cure for what ails any liberal/progressive/non-idjit.
