It's a big, big week for our dear friend Joanna. First, she's secured a new apartment after a protracted period of homelessness, and now she's having a birthday. The latter, of course, can and will happen even if you're homeless, but it's much easier to pull off if you do have a roof over your head, because that reduces the chance that someone will leave the cake out in the rain.
Unfortunately, all I was able to get her this year was the flu (but it's a pretty good strain, and I'm more than willing to share it), which is making it difficult to sit upright at the computer (and all but impossible to face the Usual Suspects from the right blogosphere). So in lieu of a virus, here's a couple pictures of pretty people whose beauty is only enhanced by the fact that they are not presently retching into a wastebasket.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm taking my soda crackers and flat 7-Up and going back to bed.
