Cereal expert Leandra goes in for the kill on a grilled cheese. Yeah, photo shoot lighting makes for weird photographs.

Trader Joe's Jelly Beans

Erin brought in some Trader Joe's jelly beans. We didn't plan for these to be lunch, but things happen. And then you have jelly beans for lunch.

Oh, hi John
Oh, hi John

John '33 Cheesecake' Edwards came by to help us snack. And photobomb this shot.

Hi, Yuba!
Hi, Yuba!

Kenji brought in his new dog, Yuba, an adorably small Boston terrier. Also: notice the purple harness. She and Hambone have matching harnesses. It's the best.

Sidelong Glances
Sidelong Glances

Yuba can make sidelong glances in two directions. Her first day in the office was mostly spent...glancing at things.

Love me? Please?
Love me? Please?

Oh, fine, if you insist.

Petting Achieved
Petting Achieved

She's a pretty passive dog to pet...though she will drool just a little bit if you scratch her in the right spot.

Quality Time

Leandra gets some quality time with Yuba.

Yuba's now our understudy office mascot/acting CFO. Here she sits in a moment of deep thought with her new friend, office visitor Ocdavia.

Sibling Rivalry

Hambone sometimes gets a a little jealous of his new big sister. Ocdavia wisely pointed out that "Hambone is bigger, but Yuba is older, so Hambone has to do everything Yuba says."

For breakfast one morning, Ed brought in six tarts from Balthazar Bakery. In related news, this was the worst week for Passover to happen ever.

The Day's Wine Delivery
The Day's Wine Delivery

It may look like the dogs do all the work around here, but the human editors pitch in from time to time. Here's Drinks editor Maggie unwrapping today's delivery of wine. Does pink bubble wrap = better wine? We'll see.

Hi, James!
Hi, James!

Barbecue bureau chief James Boo brought us some maple syrup from the beardliest French Canadian man he's ever seen. We paid him...in wine. Thanks, James!

Hambone, the Taste Tester
Hambone, the Taste Tester

We did a mini taste test with Smartfood's new flavored popped chips. Like a true judge, Hambone sniffed all three before making his first decision...
