The question of boxes become very apt when one is moving to a new jungle. While those of my tribe are minimalist in their approach (in general), feathering their nests, as it were, with new leaves in new places, I have acquired the very human tradition of filling my home with books and yarn. And it is very important not to mix up the two; one wouldn’t wish to twist a book in hopes of making a scarf.

Human boxes, I believe, are an extension of pattern recognition. We all do it. In the jungle, I know that when an…


Yippey! The week is almost over. While, I sit in my unnatural habitat and be a code monkey, oops that’s M’s job. M is getting ready for a big move to a new city for a new job, how exciting! Monkey has to go, and Koala is sad, but alas, c’est la vie!

And we both realized that many of our problems would be solved if we wrote. Thus, this blog was born.

Journey with us as we navigate our daily lives, travels, inspirations, and hopefully, a healthy dose of silliness. We shall not let a lack of substance deter us from a copious amount of wit! After all, as Mr. Bennet says, for what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and be diverted by them in our turn?
