Before coming to work at an accountant's office, I was under the misguided perception that April was the only time of year that an accountant was overwhelmingly busy. Oh how naive I was in the ways of taxation and its merciless deadlines. Turns out if you get an extension on your taxes in April, they then are due in October. Add to that the corporate extended deadline which was September 15th and it gets pretty darned busy here in the accounting world. Granted, my workload is nowhere near what it is for my two bosses (both CPAs) as all I do is type the letters that ask clients for their information as well as the cover letters that go out with the returns, as well as my various other clerical duties. But even just the typing is enough because the people who get the extensions are generally those who have the more involved returns (at least the clients here anyway) and those returns have lots and lots of questions that need to be answered before they can be completed. Enter Lil the Wonder Typist and many, many, many 4 and 5 page letters full of questions and requests for documentation/information.

The-e-e-e-n, as if that weren't enough, I've had pretty steady work from the 2nd job. Now trust me, I'm not complaining. It's good to be busy and secure. I'm liking it, really. It just doesn't leave a whole lot of extra time for blogging and etc. However, I feel I'm being neglectful so I'm writing this short update on my lunch break for you perusal, enjoyment, opportunity-to-mock, etc.
