You can’t help but be in a good mood here in Los Angeles. As I said, it’s cold everywhere in the country right now. California is lovely. We were supposed to have a cold front in LA yesterday, but it was cancelled at the last minute by Sony, so… [laughter and applause] It’s not happening.
The cold weather can cause a lot of problems, but I don’t like to focus on the negative, so here’s something good that happened. The panda at the National Zoo in Washington, DC, got to experience snow for the very first time. Look at this. all: Aww. – Come on. That is having so much fun. Keep going. You can roll–you can do it! That is Bao Bao.
That’s her name. She’s cute, cute. Oh, I’m telling you, I just want to watch that all day long. That is so adorable, but I have other things to tell you about. We had a lot of staff news over the break. This is Phil Fitzpatrick from our Props Department and his wife Jean had a baby girl. Her name is– There she is right there. [cheers and applause] Her name is Lincoln Madeline. She’s 8 pounds, 10 ounces, and 20.5 inches long. And the manager of the Ellen Shop, Layla, and–Layla Weiss, her husband Paul, they had a baby, Hadley Brin, 7 pounds, 4 ounces. [applause] Cute little baby. And she is 20 inches long, which means Phil has the longest staff baby so far. It’s still early.
Everyone else has plenty of time to make a longer baby by the end of the year. Good luck. And this is exciting. We also have some video footage. This is Phil’s baby and Layla’s baby playing together. Look at this. How cute. Oh, no. [laughter] Oh, it’s pandas again. all: Aww. – I gave them the wrong tape. I’m sorry. That’s cute. Bao Bao and her friend Boo Boo. [laughter] I don’t know the friend’s name. Also over the break, our stagehand Dave got married.
He and his girlfriend had been dating for 18 years. He finally put a ring on it. And, yeah. It’s about time. [cheers and applause] I think we have video footage from the reception. Let’s take a look at that. [singing] – Celebrate Good times, come on – It’s a celebration – Celebrate – Aw…………….
