This is what my cats look like:
And this is what I look like when I make duck faces at the cat:
Anyway, I’m back! Maybe just for a little while, maybe for good. So many things have happened that I wanted to write about – the finale of HIMYM, the anniversary of Roger Ebert’s passing, Stephen Colbert setting off hoards of angry tweeters and also announcing his new late night gig.

Anyway, it means we’ve been spending most of our weekends with our friends Phil and Meredith, which means …
Joel has befriended their tortoise.
That’s all for today. I’ll be back soon!
