It’s been a grumpy week over here at Casa de Jill y DC.

It appears that we have a water leak somewhere under our house. Our house sits on a concrete slab, so the leaking line won’t be easily accessible without the aid of a jack hammer and a lot of money.

Demonic spirits took possession of DC’s primary and backup business computers this week. He has been on the phone with various technical support organizations around the globe for the last 48 hours. The backup computer is now resting comfortably after a successful exorcism. The primary computer’s head is still spinning and spewing green vomit all over the office walls.

Our now ex-accountant screwed up DC’s estimated quarterly taxes yet again and, as a result, the IRS wants us to give them $8000 on or before September 15. Oh, and the screw up is extensive and pervasive enough that we also need to pony up an additional $3000 for the 2005 tax year.

The cubification of my workplace is about to begin. This week I found out that within the next three months, I will be removed from the spacious window office that I’ve been in for the last 16 years and will be relocated into a 6 ft. by 8 ft., corporate-approved, standard-sized cube. Anybody who even thinks about saying something like “Oh, you were really lucky just to have that office as long as you did” can bite me.

I am cross.
