Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Two are now three

So, just FYI, blogging will be disrupted for a little bit. This is for obvious reasons:

My daughter, Jezebel Lilith the Uninteresting, was born last night at 8 pounds, 1 ounce and 21 inches long. She's healthy and doing great. My wife is tired, but the labor went well and she's doing beautifully. We should be home from the hospital (which helpfully supplies wifi) in a day or two.

It's hard to express how I feel right now, but it's pretty amazing. JezLil is as lovely as her mother, so if she's even half as smart, I'm going to be utterly outclassed.

Also, for the non-parents out there: if following the delivery someone asks you if you'd like to see the placenta, the correct answer is "no".

See y'all soon.

"if following the delivery someone asks you if you'd like to see the placenta, the correct answer is "no"."

Having videoed a Caesarian or two, I can vouch for this. But it's nice to be reminded of the extremes to which women are subjected during pregnancy, if only to be able to call b.s. on those who treat it as Glorious.

Great news. That's one beautiful baby. My daughter was born at home. My job, whether I chose to accept it or not, was to bury the placenta. Way better than eating it as some suggested.

Super! That is "teh awesome!"

My next one is due in August... I am thinking of naming her "Reptar!"

JezLil sounds great and she looks healthy and happy. Say good bye to sleep again... but you know that already... :D

Oh, and watching the C-section is probably a "no" as well, but it did not stop me.... :D
