Good job! You seem to have kicked butt on your skills test.

When Z told me what happened when the noise woke me up, I didn't really register how close Katie was to the fan fall. I got up with the kids at 6:15 this morning and had a big "HOLY SHIT WHY IS THE FAN SO CLOSE TO KATIE'S SWING OMFG SHE COULD HAVE DIED" moment.

What a blessing that the swing was on a backstroke. And I'm thinking we really need to find a church and start going to it. The other logical explanation is that this house is on an Indian burial ground and the Indians are pissed that we are leaving.

(In the last month, the garage door, garbage disposal, and now the mofo ceiling fan have failed...)

They gave her a corticosteroid at the hospital, which lasts for 3 days. Her stridor is getting better, but she's cranky. With everyone else in the family being sick, it's a load of laughs here in the house. It's cruddy timing.

Ah, well. We'll look back on this and laugh at some point.

Hrm, I'd say Quake as the ultimate chick game.

Here are a few off the top of my head:
Syberia
The Sims
KOTOR
WoW (bye, wife!)

Thank you all for the birthday wishes. I've spent most of the day chasing 2 kids around, dealing with real estate garbage, and generally keeping everyone alive.

Tonight we had steaks for dinner. Life is good. Besides the HOUSE, I got a noncontact laser sighting thermometer. I think between Z and me, we've taken the temp of everything in the house. (I have been lusting for one ever since seeing it on Good Eats.)

BTW - who all here is in the Atlanta area? We should all get together for a BBQ or the like.

It would melt your screen, yo.

I don't know why I'm so opposed to manufactured stones. I just am.

Of course, the last piece of jewelry he bought ne was in 2002.

Ah, Space Captain. I get why you didn't really like SC now. You read it after you'd encountered a lot of the cultural derivatives. It's like how people of our generation don't "get" movies like Citizen Kane. It made a huge impact when it was released, but since so many movies have used the tricks since then, it doesn't seem novel. It just seems bleh.

I think you have to keep in mind when SC was written. A lot of the things he writes about in the book were barely on the horizon yet of modern technology (it came out in 1993, IIRC). And now you have people getting arrested for pooning and doing 56 mph.

I'd like to give Neal Stephenson a try, some time soon. I just never seem to have enough time to read these days (says me, posting here at almost 3am )

I know the feeling. If I were to just slack off the Intrawebs time, I could find oodles of time to complete the books that I crawl through nowadays. Of course, my toddler is much more obliging to allow me 30 seconds of surfing time here and there versus giving Mommy 30 minutes of uninterrupted reading time. (I used to be able to kill 1-2 books a day, now it takes me over a week to get through something.)

Have you read any Connie Willis? It's literary and fun sci-fi. (I'd recommend starting with either Doomsday Book or To say Nothing of the Dog.

Snow Crash is the first sci-fi I ever liked. It made me realize it could be well-written and funny.

I am guessing this is one of those girlie colors?

Nope. It's about as basic as you can get. It's boring, well known, and still got mispelled. (Yes, I'm being slightly cagey about the name. Since it's going to be an important security question to our daughters later in life, I've gotta obfuscate where I can.)

Gah, I feel sorry for you, Batman. I have a dear college friend who goes by "Bo", but that's because he was sick of them mispelling "Bryan" as either "Brian" or "Brain".

I never ever thought someone could misspell "Heather" but it happens all the time. In addition, my maiden name (which is a color) was regularly misspelled when I lived in Texas. I'd make a reservation at a restaurant, showup, give them my last name, and then have to give them the alternates that they may have misinterpreted it as.

Gotta love Texas draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawls.

P.S. Nice find, Heather. Looking forward to seeing POTC2.

Thanks. I know a member of HSW personally, so I get the "411" on the cool new articles going up!

And that is the good thing, mom and dad need to their shit together for her at least, unfortunately mom likes to fight, but I had her go get on Zoloft so we will see how things go. Put up with her she is young … emotional … pregnant … just had a baby, they are running out of reasons for me to “put up” with her, surly “normal” is just around the corner.

To be fair, "normal" is a long way off still. Pregnancy hormones take a while to wear off. If she's breast-feeding, they'll linger longer. Pregnancy does such a number on a woman's body that it doesn't just snap back quickly.

I'm not trying to excuse her behavior or say you should put up with anything and everything she throws at you. Just keep in mind that she has just gone through one of the most life-changing experiences. Having a child is not something you can prepare for with sleep deprivation, priorities changing in ways you can't even imagine, etc..

I really don't envy where you are at right now. A child tests the strongest of relationships. With you two not exactly seeing eye-to-eye, it has to be so hard.
