The rumor is true. Liz and I put as much between us as possible so we don't have to look at each other in the morning, but once in a while what I see makes me shake my head.

I thought I had enough monitors between us this morning to block both our views of each other, but today, Liz decided to wear her Grinch hat and leave it on in the studio. I looked up at one point to see this slightly disturbing view from my chair.

There he was, The Grinch...looking at me as if he was going to take my Christmas tree and shove it up the chimney. I looked over at Liz's chair and saw something about as cuddly as a cactus and as charming as an eel.

Welcome to my world. Before you judge me, spend an hour in my studio. You probably wouldn't want to touch my morning with a 39 and a half foot pole.
