RTT: Because

Because I haven't done a Random Tuesday post in almost a month.


Bladeless fan. Because that is way cool.

Velociraptor leg. Because chicken legs are too small.

Because it combines Pulp Fiction and The Empire Strikes Back.

Because it's made of paper.

Swimming pigs. Just because.

Because one day, he'll run with the wolves too.

Keely, the Un-Mom. Because she started all of this.

And Then There Was Three

Eight months of pregnancy, five weeks of hospital bed rest, two and half hours in the operating room and four days of recovery and we came home with this:

Even though he's already puked on me and peed on my leg earlier tonight, I think he's worth it.

Sorry it took so long for a photo, or to respond to anybody's comments, but like I said, we were in hospital for four days after delivery so both Supreme Leader and Baby X could recover. Plus we're all on the three hour feeding cycle now so sitting down at the computer just makes me want to lay my head down on the keyboard. I'll fill in the details later.

No, the baby doesn't have a name yet. Well, actually he has two, Aiden and Finn, we just can't decide which one we like most. We had hoped that once he was born we'd just know which one to choose, but that hasn't happened yet. Meh, we've got a month before we have to send in the paperwork.

Why Didn't I Think Of This Sooner?

I had a brilliant artistic idea yesterday, but unfortunately my medium is scheduled to disappear at 11am PST today. Supreme Leader's stomach! So round, so big, so...er... no, not big. Um? Wait, she doesn't have computer access in the hospital. SO BIG! So many possibilities, so little time.

Advertising. How much do you think I could have got plastering Pampers or Huggies or Graco across this?

Connor and Liam also thought this was an excellent idea and demanded their turns. Tagged by his older brothers and he's not even out yet, a sign of things to come?

That's not a moon, that's a space station.

I really wish I'd had more time with this one. Could you imagine if I'd filled it all out in black with a picture to go by instead of just what was in my head? Hopefully one day another expectant father with an extremely patient wife will take this idea and improve upon it.

Supreme Leader's only condition for allowing me to do this to her was that the ink must come off afterwards. I don't know, I think the surgical staff would have been impressed. Anyway, if you're looking for a good marker to draw on yourself or a loved one with I'd recommend Crayola Pip-Squeaks. Easy on, easy off.

Why didn't I think of this sooner?!

Week 34: The Empire Strikes Back

Darth Vader: So, you have a brother on the way. Your feelings have now betrayed him, too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide him from me. Now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the Dark Side... then perhaps he will...
Luke: NO!

(Ignore the phantom Obi-wan in the window with the camera.)
