IN THE MOST IRRESPONSIBLE WAY POSSIBLE

This week, Fearless Leader is on his annual vacation to the Siachen Glacier, where he will meditate, evade Pakistani and Indian military forces, and catch up on some reading. We hope he has a pleasant time and got our message about the Pakistanis changing their radio frequency. You're stuck with me, Jane, and Mr. Cookbook until he gets back, but befo(closes tab) HEY GET BACK HERE RIGHT NOW.

But before you get too down about this news, consider how important it is for bosses to take time to recharge and relax. The stress of management and oversight can take its toll if you're not careful, and a responsible leader takes care of himself so he can take care of others. A week off now can mean months and months of productivity later.

So let's all hope Spencer has a great vacation with a minimum number of arrests for vice crimes. Until then, you're all free to eat ice cream for breakfast and stay up too late, and you should fully expect us to do whatever we want until next Monday, because Dad's not home to stop us.
