New Toys

A good friend of mine who shall remain nameless for now went and was kind enough to get me a little gift on a trip he took. Can you find it?

If you chose the monkey in the top left, looking down at me, you were right! Here’s a closer look. And an even better one. I’m not sure how well this will do in the office though, as, well… see for yourself. That’s right, it’s from Microsoft. How will my tux ever survive.

The little guy is cool though, he’s got magnets in his hands and feel that allow him to grip things, like a finger say. I sent him on a bit of an adventure, kind of an Indiana Jones style thing. He even got attacked by a huge beast!
He survived happy though. Almost too happy. He not only can grip things, but if a cat is available he can stay on them quite easily. Remember the movie Dune where that Paul guy is riding the giant spice worms? Yea, you know the one I’m talking about. In the end he just chatted a bit before retiring to watch over me like a little messanger of Bill.

  1. Hey man, careful with that thing. It’s a powerful administrative tool. The magnets shoved up its ass work as an unofficial “In-efficient Harddisk formating tool”. Spank the monkey enough around the drive and you might delete something.
    Well, maybe not. But it sure looks strikingly familar to the Helix monkey you got a few years back when we were at Linux World. Maybe it and Tux had babies or something.
    Nice entry dude. Made me laugh.

  2. Maybe we can get a few pictures of you spanking that monkey? Or, in keeping with fridays “from an animals perspective” challenge by Tig, get a few from the monkeys perspective of being spanked?
