The King is ‘holding the fort’ on his own this week. The rest of the royal family went on a bit of a road trip to the Canadian west coast to visit the Duchess in Vancouver; making this the first re-union since she migrated west from the NJLE.
I’d liked to have been able to go. However, in the past six months, all of those little things that go along with being King necessitated me taking an hour off here, a half a day there and before you know it… I’ve burned through all of my vacation time that I’d earned manning the helm of industry. What can I say? I’ve nickel and dimed myself out of a summer vacation.
So what am I to do for the next week? Judging from the picture to the left, I’m going to have a bevy or two. I’m going to relax. I’m going to lounge around in the royal chambers absolutely buck naked. I’m going to save my farts in a jar. You know, the kind of the things that all of the royals do when they are unsupervised.
To be truthful, I’ve got a few things that I’d like to get done around the kingdom over the next couple of days. Exactly what those things are, well… I’m not going to give it up here. In reality, there’s a lot depending on what the weather is going to be like; weather that has been nothing but infinitely sucktastic since the royal fam left yesterday morning.
I guess there is a lot that can go on in the next week in the New JeffLand Empire… I’ll have to post some updates to make sure that everyone is on the same page.
Not exactly a State Of The Union address… but much hasn’t changed in JeffLand. We’re sort of in between sports at the moment and some time has been freed up for some relaxation and frolicking in the new-found sun! Spring is almost here and I’m loving it. The snow is melting and the brownish-greys of winter are slowly washing away with the greens of spring slowly making their way to the surface. Slowly… a little too slowly if you ask me. I’ll take it however it comes, though, since spring is infinitely better than winter. And if I could ever get past the daylight savings time change… I’d be set.
The workplace has been crushing my soul every day and after a long, cold winter… I’m getting a little squirrelly and needing to get the #$%& out of there. It’s not like I have anywhere I want to be or need to be, I just can’t stand being at my desk in that cubicle. Perhaps a visit to the JeffLand embassy some place tropical is in order. I’ll see what I can do about the national debt and setting it back a little.
Here, in the waning hours of vacation, I lie in dread… for tomorrow is a return to work. My carefree days, playing video games in my pajamas and not knowing what day of the week it was… they’ve come to an end.
I lie in my bed writing this and I know I can’t hold out forever. Sleep is coming and with it a new day. It’s just going to really suck.
