Meowsers

The Daily Chuck this week may just end up being an homage to all the animals we met while in Mexico (note: I said MET not TOUCHED). This is as close as Jon would let me get to any of the cats, even though most of them looked totally docile and cuddly. Jon, I chose [...]

Casper

He eventually rubbed the sunscreen all the way in, sort of. Actually, not at all. Which means his face matched the color of my entire body.

Hola!

We’re back! From one of the most spectacular weeks of our lives! And I’m going to write a completely useless sentence just so that I can include one more exclamation point in this paragraph! We went to Mexico, but since I want to write about it and show it to you in detail, I want [...]

I hung around afterward to talk with him (long after he had graciously said to hello every single person in the giant crowd that enveloped him), and he could not have been friendlier or more adorable. Damn, [...]

Love is blind

(While Jon and I take some time to unwind on a beach very far away, I’m reposting some content from my archives. This one was originally published on November 20, 2006.) “Stop looking at it.” “I’m not looking at it.” “Yes you are. I’m looking at your eyes right now, and they’re looking directly at [...]

The smart breed
