I, Slacker

Hey All,
I know it's been a while. What can I say? The hectic travel schedule and other commitments of the Great Oppressors have kept me from the computer. B and J visited Europe, New York, Vermont, and Montana while I hung out with my new chubby buddies Buster and Blue. I pretty much owned that place. Let's just say they didn't put up much of a fight when I defended my kibble. Their Great Oppressor was kind enough to share the bed with me, so it beat dog camp hands down. I'm awesome.

So, the main reason I'm writing is because someone was crazy enough to hire J for a real job with real benefits, not the least of which is working for nice people in her chosen field. I'm not quite sure how I feel about this since it means that I will have to spend more time alone in the house, but I looked at the going price of hamburger these days and by my calculations, J will be able to purchase around 10,000 pounds of premium hamburger with her annual salary. Now, that might not be much in the grand scheme of Great Oppressor wage scales, but I see that as great news for yours truly since this is steady work that pays quite well for a nonprofit. I'm sure that the only reason the Great Os have been feeding me kibble for all these years is tied to J's meager-paying jobs, but no more! I can't wait for the meat to start rolling in. This is very exciting news! Laisser le bon temps roulez!!!!!

Hey congrats to J! A real job finally....You do know what us doggies can do to a house when we are alone all day, right?

And sid-i-licious, they'll probably keep the burgers for themselves.

Awesome! Well played to J. Now, as a part of the deal you should definitely demand hamburger and more computer time for YOU. I think you can negotiate to get that into the contract.

ps. I am seriously happy for J. I know the whole academia thing is rough. I have to listen to whining about it ALL the time.

Dude, I didn't see you at the chat which was a total bummer. Stupid apes thinking they have better things to do.

Hope you're eating burgers by the lorry-load now... well done to J for getting a meat-paying job!


Hi,
