Danny’s running a little late, so I actually *do* have time to hop online for a moment. πŸ™‚ Happy first day of Summer, dear journal! I’m busily being nuzzed by Newt as I brush my teefies…. the little boy likes the minty-freshness… He’s taken to relaxing on top of the monitors again, lately, as the rain on the window isn’t terribly appealing to him.

The new Carvel commercial with the singing “fudgie the whale and cookie puss rap” is oddly disturbing… I miss the old guy just saying “We gots Cookie puss.. come one down and have one” in a gravelly old new yorker accent.

Oh.. I was thinking of taupe
