Whew... Baby seems to be ok now, and while Jaundice is a relatively minor thing, it sure put the worry on our collective brows. Thanks for all the good wishes guys/gals, and I've included more piccies in the album.
Arwen's in the hospital now, and it's a bit worrying being a first time pop and all. She has a case of jaundice, which in itself is not really too threatening. Apparently many babies have this, and is more prone in orientals. Whatever the case, a hospital stay no matter what age, and for whatever reason is not a small thing.
Ok, so a particularly hideous rhyme.. Sue me. Well if you love your dog, and your fave movie is Star Wars, then this is the thing for you. => Now after seeing this, it made me think. What sort of guy (and yes I'd think no girl would be caught dead at Petcetera picking this up) would want to purchase this? Then again, if I had a dog, and I made a scale model of a slaver barge across a sarlac pit, I suppose having a slave leia Pekinese or something like that would be the appropriate thing to have.
Ahh.. now I know what it feels like to be a zombie. Well not the type that eats brains, or has so much plastic surgery that you become some sort of cyborg, zombie, child molesting demon. However having extremely low amounts of sleep, coupled with no food really does do a number on you. My wife is hanging in there like a trooper, but sleep deprevation soon turns into hallucinations (audio and otherwise).
Ahhh Fatherhood. Man I tell you being such a technogeek, and forgetting your camera at your own child's birth is a real kick in the nads. Like this is THE consumate event in everyone's life, and I forget the dang camera. Go figure. Well of course being a technogeek, my PDA (thank goodness for the Zire 72!) had a camera component. Mind you, the photos leave a bit to be desired, but at least you can tell I didn't father a monkey.
Those of you who were guessing, here are the details of my progeny's arrival onto mothership Earth.
Name: Arwen Harmony (insert Chinese name here) Loh Birthtime: 2:20 PM Birthweight: 5 lbs 13 oz Birthlength: 19 3/4" Time in Labour: approx 8 hours
Oh yeah.. one other thing... we don't have another kid, nor are we going to call her brother (sister) Gollum, Boromir, or Gimli. K? So get that straight. =>
Ok, where the f*ck did these crazy mosquitos come from? Now talking to a co-worker originally from Manitoba, these ones in Edmonton are small. However, from Vancouver, these prarie helicopters are positively insane. Me n the missus got attacked and bitten near to death last night. Dusk is definitely a bad time to be outside, near long grass. We found a monster in our house. While leather jackets, though annoying, are relatively harmless, this 2 inch sucker would have done Bela Lugosi proud.
My parents picked up one of those 'lectric Tennis Rackets' for us, and I used it to get all capital punishment on it's ass. Then I performed a burial at sea. i.e. Flushed the sucker good.
I'm not sure what the motivation was for the fellow who made this, but it definitely had something to do with the love of pork products. I mean, I love bacon as much as the next guy, but c'mon.. I mean 2 packages? REALLY! Now of course the guy used (and I'm sure it's a guy who created this, since females tend to be a bit more reasonable diet wise) the sodium reduced version, ok who is he kidding now...
'I chose the low-sodium variety for its health benefits.'
Man.. what can I say about this awesome logo design. Apparently they had this logo up on their website and they must have pulled it, since the site is now 'under construction'. It was for some sort of hotel in Brazil? It had an oriental themeing, hence the rising sun motif. Well.. I guess the designer was way into anal porn since it turned out the way it did. Awesome is all I can say. *snicker*
Well, I've been drooling over these grills (yeah.. depending on how anal you wanna be, that's GRILLS not Barbeques) for quite a number of years. The big big name in grills IS Weber, and it's the one to get if you're half way serious about Grillin as I WANT to be. So I finally am able to drop some bills on this bad boy, due to an awesome sale. Clearing out last years models versus this years model, that has stainless steel front doors. Whoopty Do! I was able to save pretty much 30% off the retail price!
I haven't had a chance to fire up this bad boy, but I'm hankerin for some charred flesh. It's raining tonight, so that sucks, but when the sun peeks out.. Watch out! It's the grill of my dreams baby!
I know you love Paul Anka... C'mon I know you do. Well I don't know about recording artists constantly re-inventing themselves, but it seems oddly reminecient of the Pat Boon metalphase for some reason. Anyhoo, check it out.
Boy, have we been busy. We've been attending Pre-Natal classes, I've just finished setting up the Home Theatre for the new place, and generally been busy at work, and life in general. I'll try to make it a point of updating the blog more often, but things are gonna get busy!!!
