PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Hello, humans. My name is Isabelle, and i have shared living space with Ms. Demeanor for over a decade. She has been working very hard on this blog every single day since June, but today she is out-of-gas and has a big pile of papers to finish grading by tomorrow. She asked me if i would pose for one quick picture, since she finds me very attractive. Of course i agreed as it gave me an excuse to bask in the sunshine and fresh air on this unusually beautiful, late October day, and i am admittedly a damned fine-looking ... oh, look! There goes a train!
