Katey B.

Last night we were playing around trying to get a good head shot for our assistant Katey to use as her avatar for all the different social networking platforms that kids these days are using. Katey can dribble a basketball, juggle a set of knives, and text a friend all at the same time. It’s not so much impressive as it is terrifying.

She happens to be on the same diet that I am, the one called Chronic Anxiety which includes a blend of several life-altering catastrophes and sleep deprivation. So not only has she lost all the weight she gained during pregnancy, she’s now down about 15 pounds below that. She said it would be the proper girl thing for me to call her a bitch, but I’m not into that kind of girl thing, so I’m all dude, you look fantastic.
