I would like to apologize to all of my blogging friends. I have been very busy at home and at work lately, and have been sadly remiss in my many blogtastic responsibilities. If I have not visited your blog lately, or if I have not answered your emails quickly and with the verve and gusto that they deserve it is because as of late I have been up to my eyeballs in makeshift monkey trials and last minute brain surgery during my graveyard shift at the local lobotomitorium.
I have always assumed that I had no life, but if I have learned anything in the last couple of months it is that I do in fact have a life. The problem is that what little life I do have seems to be determined to kill me! So many things are happening right now that I can't keep up with my usual empty, vapid lifestyle.
Without going into too much detail, I shall provide this one small example of my recent Winter Wonderland Extravaganza. (There have been several other issues that are too numerous to mention that have demanded my attention as of late. This is only one of them.) I have a huge leak in my ceiling that is right above the main media workstation of Zaius Nation Central.
Suffice it to say that the recent deluge here in Ape City has made me reconsider the position of my awesome Data Processing Machine (it's a Commodore 64!), but certain factors have made this difficult. If I move the computer to another room, other issues crop up. For the time being the Lawgiver's Snowy Wrath has been kind, and I may be able to keep my Throne of Media Calculation in the same room if I throw enough plastic bags over it - at least for the time being.
In the meantime, I have turn off the electricity in that room for fear of an electical fire. I pipe in electricity from another room via some rather hefty orange extension cords, which are easy to trip over. When I turn off the breaker for that room I also cut the juice to the living room and the washing machine, so I have to wait for a relatively dry day with no snow or rain to do any laundry. Oh, well. at least my cat is still awesome!
