Tuppence, taste testing Chobani Greek Yogurt

I don't know about you, but I'm a little tired of the U.S.reporting being so obviously deliberately negative on Russia, the Olympic village, and Putin specifically. Did it feel to anyone else like there was a stick being poked in Putin's eye? I mean, have you watched the TODAY Show at all? It really seems like we're doing our best to belittle, besmirch, and generally annoy other nations. Who do we think we are?? Are the latest 'toothpaste tube' terror threats real, or a way to put fear into people's minds and diminish their confidence in Russian security?
Oh. So back to the yogurt. I don't know if this is just political on Russia's part to block the shipment of yogurt from Newark to Sochi, or if they're trying to follow the letter of the law in demanding accompanying paperwork (maybe because of our very public questioning of Russia's ability to keep the Olympics safe?) but if so, I for one think we have it coming.
Still, I do feel sorry for the Olympians. They need their Chobani. I eat this stuff nearly every day. It's a great, high-protein lunch.
BTW, Tuppence only gets to lick out the container when I'm done. But she agrees that it's delicious!
Doesn't she look like a sweet cat? She doesn't seem that sweet when she's draped herself across my neck in the middle of the night. Trust me.
