Boxed Brownie Tasting
Sweets editor Carrie baked a bunch of different brands of boxed brownies for our blind tasting. Tough job tasting brownies, we know.
Former SE intern / NowThisNews video journalist Katie Quinn stopped by the office to help us taste brownies. We really had to twist her arm.
Yuba and Hambone
Hambone eats his breakfast, while Yuba licks imaginary spilled ice cream off o the imaginary lamp post in front of her. She has a good imagination, that one.
Going in for the goods
No Yuba, you already had yours.
Good girl, stay away from my food.
Eunice and Yuba
New bffs 4eva.
Yuba is telling Kenji about that zombie movie she watched last night. She doesn't speak well, so sometimes has to pantomime.
Veggie Banh Mi Tasting
With Kenji and Erin going vegan this month, they decided this was the prime time for a veggie banh mi-off between three of the banh mi shops in the office neighborhood (a.k.a. Chinatown): Saigon Vietnamese Sandwich Deli (on Broome), not to be confused with Banh Mi Saigon (on Grand), and the chain Paris Sandwich (also on Grand). The consensus: Erin and Kenji don't love mock meats.
And Hambone, pretending he didn't just finish all of his.
This is Yuba doing her best, "What, no peanut butter for me?" face.
Why won't this peanut butter on my nose just hold still?!
Still Peanut Butter
I said stop moving so I can lick you!
Still Still Peanut Butter
Fine. Be that way. I don't even want you any more.
Peanut Butter Nap
Too much peanut butter, too much sleeping, must take a nap...
It's a dog's life, being a dog and all.

No Yuba, that's not a monster.
See Yuba? You had your own cozy little bed right over there all along.
We're not exactly sure what happened to Yuba here. All we know is that most of her limbs disappeared and she kept her face buried in the bed like this for over half an hours.
Fine. If you're going to insist on crawling into my bed, I'm at least going to use your butt as a pillow, ok?
It was chilly the other day, so Hambone and Yuba both came in wearing their best winter togs. Hambone staked out his territory in the bed, but Yuba was having none of it.
Niki, Erin, and Max dig into some leftovers that Paul brought back from a photo shoot (thanks Paul!).
Giant Jet Blue Bear!
Carey won a Jet Blue twitter contest and, in addition to a free flight anywhere Jet Blue flies (side question: where should she go?), she won this giant bear! Hello there Mr. Bear! Hambone is sniff-checking him out.
Mr. Bear Needs Some Booze
It's been a long exhausting week of, well, being a bear. Pass the scotch.
Mr. Bear Joins Our Editorial Meeting
"So Mr. Bear, what are your editorial plans for the upcoming week on your new site SeriousBears.Com?"
With Mardi Gras coming up, Kenji made a bunch of muffalettas. The man loves his muffalettas.
