What's A Dugong?

I am working from home today. There was going to be some construction near my desk and I've just got too much to do. Working from home is okay... it has it's good points and bad points... Good - I can work uninterrupted and get a ton of stuff done. I don't have to change out of my pjs. Bad - I work a lot and don't ever feel like my day is officially over. It gets kind of boring around here. Today's bad point is that I leaned down to sit in a chair and my back twinged and I fell forward. Now it hurts to step to the side and take long strides. Not fun.

Two weeks left until our trip to California. I can't wait to see my mom, Erik (who reminded me that it took me 4 months to meet him but it was totally worth it... I didn't have to put up with him for those 4 months! =P), my sister, the live-in-person Coop Scoop... Murphy Dog... I think I am going to stop by the Amgen Thousand Oaks Campus for lunch with a few people. I don't miss my old job but I definitely miss the people.

So, what's a dugong you ask? (A few people have asked me this...) Ian and I are addicted to Planet Earth. I really suggest renting it. It's been the best animal series I've ever watched. I assumed it was going to be like every other animal series and be about animals killing each other... but it was more about the wildlife and habitats of the world. Anyway, a dugong is basically a seacow that goes around nomming on seagrass all day. Below is a video of one... I would suggest fast forwarding towards the end where this dugong has a couple of yellow fishy friends.
