Yes the site is still ugly. I hope it won’t be for long.

I’m going to be doing a bit of work on the template tonight, so things are going to get a bit wonky for a bit. There is no need to panic. If you get a bit scared, please look at this picture of Stephen Colbert with a puppy. Thank you.

    Now that is just the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen. Oh, and the puppy’s pretty cute too. DB, you do whatever you need to. I’m just gonna continue to stare at this picture. :)

    Full disclosure: I’m also kind of in love with Stephen’s shirt.

    • Ah, the shirt. That soft, worn shirt. I bet it has the mild fragrance of fabric softener that’s just beginning to fade, and the warm, light scent of perspiration. I bet the collar has a darker, muskier aroma from rubbing against the soft skin of Stephen’s neck, right where you can imagine yourself planting the most gentle, tender, little ki….

      Oh, I’m sorry! The puppy. Yes. Ehem, the puppy. Yes! He’s very cute!

      By the way (*she splashes cold water on her face*), I’m confused about all the dogs. Does he have more than one? Is this his, or a co-worker’s?

      Thanks, DB for giving us this very sweet picture to look at while you toil away. You clearly know what makes many of us happy! (Hey, I wonder if he’s reading NFZ in that picture!)

        The picture is a screencap from this episode of TCR, where we find out that I Am America (And So Can You!) was actually co-written by a puppy named Riley. :) And you’re gonna want to watch the clip more than once, ’cause it’s just that adorable.

        • Thank you! That was so nice of you! You were certainly right… It is that adorable. My favorite part was when he had Riley spell Grrrrrrr! Thanks so much for sharing. I often wonder what the heck I was doing in 2007 that made me miss some of that stuff! Alas, it took me awhile to find my way.
          I am still amazed when those of you in the know can suddenly materialize links to clips just like *that!* and you even managed to turn the link into a one-word hypertext. Don’t even tell me how you do it. I prefer to continue thinking that this site is simply magical, and one day, if I’m really good, I might be granted Zoner powers. I realize I have yet to prove my worthiness.

          You’re very welcome! And truth be told, I didn’t know the exact clip right offhand, I just knew it was about IAAASCY, so I googled (seriously) “puppy at stephen’s desk” because I knew it’d at least be on Wikipedia somewhere, ha.

          And don’t sell yourself short. I’ve been a fan of TCR (and TDS) since 2007, but I wasn’t a fan until June 2009. There are far more seasoned Zoners before me, which makes me grateful, both for them, and for the fact that Stephen is extra-present. There’s always more to learn. :)

      • bahahahaha! @SW that’s all i got.

  2. Whooza good puppy? Whooza good puppy?! :)

    Adorableness squared! Yes, this will give us plenty to think about while the site gets fixed.
