My Hero, Zero

After many years of complete stupidity, and many more years of only mild stupidity, and then a few years of actual self-restraint and hard work, we have...paid off all our credit cards! They're done. Multiply our stupidity by zero and you get, at long last, zero. What a relief. Celebrate with me by having hot dogs for dinner instead of going out to Baja Fresh like I'm dying to do!

In honor of the day, I offer you a bit of nostalgia. Zero is indeed a wonderful thing.

Where have I been?

To Jupiter and back. For anyone who hasn't heard the news, my company has been acquired. We're in the process of merging and have to finish off our editorial calendar--which consists of an insane number of reports and which would, in a normal year, take us until March or April of the following year to complete--by 12/31 to fulfill our current contracts. I've agreed to go back to working 40 hours per week until the end of the year.

Things have been very difficult for the past few weeks, but we seem to have come out on the other side of this tunnel--at least for now. I hope that I'll be able to resume our regularly scheduled programming shortly.
