Introducing my excuse for being absent for the last year:
I gave birth to a Weighted Companion Cube. True Story.
It originally looked like this around the same time in 2011:
Which turned into this here wedding cake (July 21):
Which apparently was a lie:
But I ate it anyway, which I regretted because it has about a zillion calories and made me put on weight. 60lbs of weight (60 * 3165 = 1,899,000 calories to be exact)
And 10 months later it grew arms and escaped. So in the end the moral of the story is: never, ever, ever eat a Weighted Companion Cube.
