Hm. So I’m excited for this chance to stand in Dennis York’s shoes for a day or two. Incidentally, his shoes are damp. Very dubious indeed.

Before leaving on blog vacation, York left me with three simple instructions. In his own words:

1. “Just be yourself.”
2. “Don’t say anything about my enormous earlobes.”
3. “Your first post must be about stoplights. You have to bring it.”

I don’t want to let the man down so I have spent much of my evening collecting data on traffic signals and the susceptibility of ferrets to European bat rabies. Er…except not that last part.
