Aah … accounting! Did you just read that “aah” as a relaxed sigh, or more as a nervous scream? The answer might tell us something about yourself. Not if you like accounting or not (because, let’s be serious, who does?), but if you are a cynic and can laugh at even the nastiest things that life can throw at you. I know I sometimes laugh like a mad scientist when I do my taxes! Mwha. Mwhahahah! MUHAHAHAHA!
And it looks like he just bought some 30 year old second hand chains on Craigslist and they came in a 60 year old box. Well, a penny saved is a penny earned!
Another example of how deep and philosophical musings are often started by chance or even mistake.
Hope you all had some enjoyable holidays and a great New Years Eve! Does anybody have any new years resolutions? I hope you’ll all continue put up with us throughout 2014! May it be a great year where all your wishes come true!
Merry Christmas, everybody! I hope you all are as lucky as Chuck and get many presents. Big, expensive presents. After all, that’s what Christmas is all about!
Just kidding. The older I get, the less I care about getting any presents at all. By now all I really want is to spend time with my loved ones and see people be happy. When I was a kid, I always heard grown ups express opinions like that, and it boggled my mind how somebody could say such a thing and keep a straight face.
I don’t know how many of you already know this, because I didn’t make a public announcement on this website or in our Facebook group, but 2013 was a very, very special year for my wife and me. Because, a few weeks back, our first child was born! Today, the three of us will drive out to my in-laws for the first time and will celebrate a very special Christmas this year.
I hope all of you out there will also be able to enjoy these holidays and have a great time with you family, friends, or whoever you spend them with!
Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? I haven’t. I’m stuck at home with this terrible cold that just won’t go away. Well, at least I know I’m not alone, since half the country seems to be sick. Hm, maybe next year, I’ll factor in the fact that I usually get sick around this time and really buy my Christmas presents in time!
To be fair, everybody embellishes things on his or her resume, right? Not me, of course. But this is mainly due to the fact that I don’t send out resumes because I am self employed.
Does anybody else always have to think of Austin Powers when he hears the word “mole”? And is anybody else amazed sometimes when he looks up how old that movie already is that feels like you’ve watched it five years ago? Austin Powers was released in 1997, I just looked it up. Now I feel old.
I don’t know how many bosses understand that productivity doesn’t necessarily rise when you watch your employees. I guess it’s necessary in some jobs with repetitive work, and especially if you don’t pay them enough. All I know is that I’m happy to a) be self employed and b) sit in my own office without anybody watching me.
Those are all great suggestions, if you ask me! By the way: We also have our suggestion box, namely our contact form. Let me take this opportunity to thank everybody who’s writing in! We love getting feedback from our readers and we also love it if you have an idea for a comic strip. We sometimes take a little long to reply, but we try to really get back to everyone. And we can’t always turn your idea into a comic (usually because it would need too much build-up to fit into one strip), but we really appreciate every idea. Sometimes it sets us off into a completely different direction. You never know!
Well, that seems to conclude this strange series of events. It figures that Hans is the one who spoils the fun again. Anyway, it will be a relief for all those people out there who already bought a Virgin Galactic ticket!
By the way, everytime we draw a mini series and the publish it on our website, we get so many great ideas what could happen next and how to take the storyline into different directions. It actually made me think: Maybe we should start an open-ended story and let you guys decide what should happen next by letting you vote or give feedback in our forum or our Facebook page. But we’d have to wait for a time when I don’t have a hundred other things keeping my busy and know that I’ll have enough time to draw the strips quickly enough. And Mike has to be available too, which isn’t that easy, since he’s always flying around the country. But I kinda like the idea. I’m sure we’ll make it happen!
