It's a boy!

Hello everyone! Well, some of you might not know this yet, but we are finally pregnant! Well, It's been that way for a while now. I am 5 1/2 months pregnant, and we just found out we're having a BOY! It's kind of strange how we make such a big deal out of a fuzzy image of a baby's anatomy, don't you think? Anyway, I wanted to share that. He is due to come into our family on December 21st, right on our anniversary! Please send him lots of birthday presents because, as a Christmas baby, he is doomed to poor birthday experiences for the rest of his life. J/K about sending the presents. Well, not really. . .

Just one more thing, and this part will be extremely boring to the men out there. . . I have a short cervix which means that it's harder for my body to keep the baby in than it is for most women. It predisposes me to preterm labor. If you are one who prays, could you please remember us in your prayers, that this bun will stay in the oven long enough to get cooked all the way? Thanks for sharing our exciting news! Have a wonderful day!

Hilary and Carl

Held hostage in CA

I am a firm believer in the GIGO principle (You know, garbage in, garbage out) and watching a lot of violent movies tends to result in violent or angry behavior. Starring in very violent movies probably has an even greater impact on a person's demeanor and actions. For example, consider the actor playing in the lead role of California's governor. He has decided to hold over 200,000 people hostage. He is doing this by cutting the wages of all state employees to the federal minimum wage of $6.55 per hour until the state legislature passes a balanced budget. His tactic may prove effective as the members of the legislature are becoming more open to compromise. However, I do not believe that he did this to actually achieve a balanced budget. I think that after wielding computer enhanced super-human strength for so many years, Arnold Schwarzenegger was starting to feel out of place as just a normal run of the mill politician. I think he just needed to get a fix of politically enhanced super human strength and did so at the expense of the citizens of California.
