In many ways it feels like we were just doing this whole announcing thing for Lenna. In other ways it feels ages ago.

My insatiable desire for burgers is still going strong.

My reading choices are a perfect match for a girl whose bedtime is often 8:45 – Gaffigan’s Dad is Fat or some of the many Maisie Dobbs, anyone?
