It’s My Birthday, My Ba-da-dum-Birthday

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 12:51 pm

Not quite 40 yet, but close enough for a midlife crisis. So far, my presents consist of a new car and a Pattericolanche. I’m much happier about the latter than the former.

Rosemary’s Baby

If you haven’t already, be sure to congratulate the Esmays on their latest addition. Looks like a Democratic baby for now, but that should change in a month or so.

UPDATE: Oh yeah, while on the topic of overdue acknowledgements, be sure to check out BTD’s new digs if you haven’t already. God, I really suck at blogging lately.

Baby Xrlq

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 8:11 pm

Tomorrow’s the big day. I’ll drive Ms. Xrlq to the hospital first thing in the morning, and if all goes well I’ll be a father by this time tomorrow.

In related news, the answer is no. Not a chance, no way. Not maybe, not “oh, I dunno, let me think about it.” Just, no. Absolutely not. Uh-uh.

UPDATE: Baby X was born today, 10/6/04, at 5:08 p.m. Photos will follow soon.

FINAL UPDATE: They’re up now, see here and here.

Venomous Birthday

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 10:37 pm

I’d like to join Kelley in wishing Kate a Happy Birthday. Unfortunately, I can’t sing along with Kelley on the traditional Happy Birthday song, as that song is copyrighted. I mean, it’s not as though I’m a real threat to their commercial interests or anything, but then again, neither are the Girl Scouts. I don’t make nearly as sympathetic a party as the Girl Scouts do, so I just can’t take any chances. So I’m afraid she’ll have to settle for that other Happy Birthday song, the extremely annoying – but uncopyrighted – one that they sing at Bennigan’s and T.G.I. Friday’s to get A.S.C.R.A.P. to leave them alone. Here goes:
