...And the Editorial Advisory Group (EAG) is Delighted.

In a resounding vote of confidence citizens of Buttercupland endorsed the present Editor-in-Chief, Buttercup, and asked for more. Unlike the musical "Oliver," where poor Oliver Twist is told there is no more, rest assured there is lots more Buttercupland to come. An editorial advisory session was held this afternoon in the cubicle outside my office and the first request of the EAG was to feature the EAG. Pepe Junior became so excited that he did what does best and flew around the cubicle with shrieks of monkey delight. Snowflake gave several choruses of "White Christmas" and a very good time was had by the EAG. No editorial content was suggested, but I loved arranging the EAG for their photo.
I love stuffed animals and all of these sweet creatures reside at my office. Almost all were gifts from colleagues and they are part of my office toy collection. Anyone who comes to visit is welcome to play with the collection and at any time of the day I can expect to hear one of the animals singing. Pepe Junior is a souvenir of BlogHer and has proven very popular. In the right position he flies and emits monkey howls. It can be quite unnerving the first time you see and hear him in action. Is it professional? Not so much. Does my office look like a toy store? Absolutely! Is it harmless and fun? Absolutely!
