Mrs. Johnson, I am way too busy researching to pose for a picture right now!
No really, no need to help me with this. By all means, take a picture of me instead.

I am so glad that SunSand City has organic rooftop gardens...finally I am not the only health conscious person in this room!
I have made hundreds of these! Whose idea was it to have cacti in our model? Yeah. I was dreaming about making these last night. We might have reconsidered the desert location.
Engineering skills are put to practice!
