Good News

Just a small update.  My brother and sister-in-law got good news about the twins today.  (I think we—and by “we,” I mean “I”—are officially calling them “Thing 1” and “Thing 2” until we have proper names to call them, by the way.)  Doctor’s now reading BOTH heartbeats and everything looks great.  Thanks to everybody who kept them in mind this week.  (Thought about posting the ultrasound pic…but technically that’s a picture of two naked kids and it’s just not that kind of blog.)


And now the (selfishly) bad news…the due-date has been changed to May 29.  That’s my birthday.


No offense to Dave and Valerie, but I’m turning 30 this year…and I’m sure I’ll love whatever arrangement of  nieces/nephews this turns out to be…but—again, no offense—I’m not doing kid-shit on my 30th.  You’d best PLAN that C-Section!  🙂  (Mostly joking…kinda…maybe…)


In all seriousness…  Officially congrats to them on officially having everything be officially official as of today.  Officially.


Current Reading:

  • Ordered a few things from Barnes and Noble…most excited about the latest edition of Harvey Pekar’s “American Splendor” (called “Another Dollar”).  WAY looking forward to cracking that open when it gets here on Friday!!!


BONUS JOKE:  This one’s been going around the Internet for a couple of days, and I thought it was funny.  No idea where it originated…  “Thank God they found the balloon boy.  For a little while, I thought Michael Jackson was placing take-out orders.”
