OMG. So I have like, 40 million things to do today. And approximately 30 million of those things may or may not involve butter.
(Plus I obviously need to go to the store and buy some more butter.)
But I just got our photos from a photo shoot with Blue Lily Photography we did last month, for the second October in a row. (Once again: I have the best boss who gives out the best Christmas presents.) Last year, Ike was a four-month-old blobby of suspicion.

I plan to use this photo as my universal reaction to everything from stupid PR pitches, writing deadlines and suggestions that maybe I should take it easy on the butter.
