Audit Season

Audit season usually runs from around December to February, but depending on the property and potential complications, it can run longer. It's not unheard of to have an audit still incomplete by the time June and July come around. I'm not actually doing the audit. It's more along the lines of preparing the financials to be audited. Then an outside CPA firm takes that work and verifies that it's accurate. Having audited financials basically means that our accounts were validated by a third party and thus are trustworthy.

I'm in the thick of it now. I'm past deadlines on a couple of work paper packages and getting caught up is like wading through chest high mud, but there is hope. It is because I'm inundated with work right now that I write about it, so I'm sure I'll have more interesting things to talk about in the future.

Speaking of interesting things, I went to a Boston Celtics game last night at the TD Banknorth Garden. They were playing the Portland Trailblazers who I used to watch when I was younger, and actually followed basketball. I remember Clyde "The Glide" Drexler, Kevin Duckworth (who I share a birthday with), and Danny Ainge, who apparently is an executive director for the Celtics now. Now, looking at the roster for the Blazers, nearly all of them are between the ages of 19 and 28, with only two of them being born before 1980. And I don't recognize any of the names. Not that I would. I haven't followed basketball for years, and when I did it was only the Blazers. I've gone to two Celtics games this season with some good friends and had a blast though, so I could get back into it a little. The least I can do is update my fantasy team on that fantasy basketball thing I signed up for.
