Can We Start Again?

Okay, well, after a weird couple of weeks where the natural order of things was forced to contend with the grave disturbance of front-loaded holiday time, we have returned to what is more or less the first real week of the year. How does it feel? Yeah, I know, me too. Let's ease back into things as casually as possible, by which I mean funny animal stories (I think we've got an otter post coming up for you at some point this morning) and bear videos. If you are expecting the dulcet tones of Choire Sicha in this space alerting you about events around town, I am sorry to tell you that this immensely popular feature will not resume until next week. If you're still trying to make plans, look around: I'm sure there's something going on somewhere. There usually is. While we settle back in to a new year of drudgery and despair (although it has got to be better than the last one, right? I mean, it has got to) why not avoid work by catching up with our series on advice. We will get through this together, I promise. Anyway, would you like to tell us about the New Year's resolutions you have already broken? Take it to Twitter. That's what it's for.

Balk is back just in time! I was feeling way too cheerful.

I wish Balk did a 90 second morning blast about why leaving the house today or any other day is a pointless waste of time that will just make you regret the brief burst of energy that got you out of bed in the first place.

@jfruh I thought about it, but it seems a little pointless to keep recording, "Remember, you will die" over and over. Also, my voice scares people.

@Alex Balk Maybe a spokesbear? Studies show that people take bad news much better when it comes from bears.

@Alex Balk I've been thinking a lot about dying lately. I feel like I've basically done great with my 26 years, and if I died it'd be pretty ok.

Dear lady in photograph
I am crying about your top too.

@jbsquare That dude's shirt ain't no picnic either.

true but his response of being blackout drunk isn't feasible for me at work right now
