And, yeah, I really do think...

You remember that post where I was joking around about Hollywood-ized, out-there names for our baby if it happens to be a boy? Well, there has been a rather unexpected side effect courtesy of Jen (one of our SiLs).

Since we don't know the gender of our baby and we're not planning to find out and therefore cannot use stand-in names like "Baby Boy A" or "Baby Girl A" or even gender-specific pronouns like "he," "him," "she," or "her," Jen has taken to calling our baby by one of the names in that blog post.

Dirty deeds and they're done dirt cheap...

There are many movies that I love to watch repeatedly despite the dictates of good sense.

Films like Crybaby, Hudson Hawk, Undercover Brother, and so many others are considered bad or campy or underperforming or God only knows what else... but I love them.

And I've got another one to add to the list... Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Can't control your future...

Welcome to a new themed segment that I am hereby dubbing Tu(n)esday all about MUSIC!!!

and there was much rejoicing... yay.

I don't plan to blog about music every Tuesd... er, Tu(n)esday. Just when I have something to say or review. Plus it makes perfect sense since Tuesdays are traditionally the day on which new music is release in stores.

Where do we go from here...

When I was a kid, one of my favorite games to play when going on a road trip with my family was the good ol' License Plate Game.

You know the game, don't you? While your parents are driving to whatever pseudo-exotic locale that never seems to be close enough to erase the constant nagging of children and their raisin-sized bladders, you check out the license plates of the cars around you and try to find all 50 states and however many protectorates and Canadian provinces you can (I'm still not sure entirely how many provinces there are; we just marked them and they became a bonus). It was basically a form of semi-innocent stalking.

Soon it will all be over...

Welcome to June!

Wow. Yeah, I just said "June." Katie and I are having a baby in less than three and a half months. Where'd the time go? Not that I want it to stop. We both are really excited about this new chapter, but it doesn't feel like we've been given enough time to enjoy this growing-inside-the-belly phase of the game.

Oy! Well, being that it's June 1, I need to recap my progress on my New Year's Resolutions.
