Seimi came upstairs and showed Eejee a race track he had made that looks like a snake. Eejee asked, "Oh, is it a Koenignake?"
That would be Eejee's pronunciation of the Swedish supercar manufacturer. Thank you, Top Gear!

On sickness...

Interspecial Interchange

Here's a picture of Boookie yowl-talking with a snow leopard at Woodland Park Zoo.
The snow leopard (see if you can spot him through the chain link fence in the middle of the photo) was quietly growling and making other cat noises as they had a brief but heartfelt conversation.

Why Is Eejee Crying This Time?




(The Hobbit Wife caught him making a special soup in his bedroom with said ingredients)
