I promise to post lots more pictures of my China trip when I have a chance, but for now, here's one: that's a real live panda bear in my lap. Do I have the coolest job in the world, or what? ;)

That is so cute! How'd it smell? I hear bears kinda stink.

I have always admired both you and Neil Gaiman. Now I feel only bitter envy.

How many books do I have to write before I get to cuddle a panda?

Excuse me, I need to go sulk.

Yes my friend, you have possibly the best job in the Universe next to the guy that sells planets for a living...which might be a rather lucrative business in certain parts of the Universe.

Is that a baby panda? I mean, they're small bears generally speaking, but I was under the impression that the adults were aggressive and dangerous.

SMD: It's not a baby, but rather a juvenile. Baby pandas are tiny -- just six inches long.

Ryan, it smelled mostly of wet fur; it had been raining. It wasn't unpleasant in any way.

I always wanted to hold a panda bear! Was it heavy?
