Everyone came running into the kitchen when they heard we were doing a matzo taste test. Uh huh.

Or...at least our interns Linnea, Craig, and Lily. THANK YOU, INTERNS!

When former intern Paul stopped by with some corned beef, Max gave him sausages in return. And thus their friendship was sealed forever.

We received a red wig at the office (don't ask), which means we spent a little too much time passing it around the office and trying it on. Flaming redhead Erin, not bad!

Hambone and Yuba chow down on some pork hide treats while Kenji's wife tries to work (but really procrastinates by taking photos of the dogs).

It was Hambone's birthday this week. What did he get on his big 2.0? A poached egg for breakfast!

Unfortunately he didn't feel so well the next day (doesn't that happen to everyone the day after their birthday?), so spent the whole day in bed.
