To the darling piq and the rather, oh, let's just say "unique" OT, my heartiest congratulations to you both!

So in looking through this thread (which I revived simply to let OT know he needed to vote for motorcycles), I didn't see a date.

All my best wishes, and welcome (back, if it's appropriate) to the land of the wed. :D

*LIGHTBULB* Aaron has an idea....

How 'bout we all pitch in to send Piq and OT to Conneticut to get married at the B.com studio so we can all watch on the webcam?!!?? It sounds like HRH already has a minister lined up... ;)

Cheers!
Aaron

Regarding webcasting the ceremony, I have no idea how that would be done, nor do I have the time or energy to find out between now & then. However, if someone volunteered....

The other mitigating factor is that I'm sure there won't be much to watch. Simple ceremony, going light on the trappings.

For my 2,500th post, another bit of news from Piq and me.

In case anyone hasn't picked up on it from the scads of hints dropped over the last couple of weeks by Piq, me, and Selma(with her constant snickering), little Altoid is due to join the party in August! :)

I've said it before: LIFE IS GOOD!!!

Little Altoid?

By the way OT, I found a pwot.com site listed on a Google search. I have not been able to access the site but the description stood for Pointless Waste of Time.

Yes, a baby girl on the way. We're going with Altoid for now(as her "user ID"), in hopes she won't grow up to be a soprano.

Pwot.com, hmmm. I'm just not cottoning to all these acronymic parallels at all. Nope, not at all.

Tenors and Altos can breed? :eek:

Now that I've gotten the wiseacre comment out of the way, my heartiest congratulations to the happy couple point five.

Bravo!

I assure you, there were no horses involved. :D

Due to the advanced age of the incubator, and the lack of good replacement parts for a rebuild, the decision was made to undertake manufacturing opportunities at risk, in the hopes of obtaining shippable product before the apparatus completely breaks down. The equipment worked better than statistics would suggest, and great glee was inflicted upon the participants. ;)

I think my wife would be the first to second that what I lack in discretion I more than make up for in tackiness.

congrats on the baby. they're so cute that I find myself getting distracted doing my well baby exams. I also learned that if you tell the nurse that the baby has a dirty diaper, they tell you where the diapers are. apparently babies can poo so much that it literally flies out of the side of the diaper onto the walls of the isolettes. The nurses call that a size 3 bowel movement. have fun...

Piq, your "technical" description of the "incubator" reminds me of a parenting book I saw at the discovery store that was written like a manual for a VCR. It's called "The Baby Owner's Manual: Operating Instructions, Trouble-Shooting Tips, and Advice on First-Year Maintenance" Taking a baby to the pediatrician is referred to as "servicing." Made me laugh. For OT, there's a book called "Keeping the Baby Alive till Your Wife Gets Home: The Tough New 'how-to' for 21st Century Dads" When my friend found out she was pregnant, I got her the Worst Case Scenario for parenting. It was kind of funny too. Certainly beats the boring baby books that she said she wanted.

have fun.....

I expect so, among other things.
Provided we dont leave our senses of humor at the hospital.

A month or so ago, I was posed the following scenario: you walk in, the baby AND the crib are covered in feces. How do you handle the clean-up.

I've had a lot of fun with that ever since. My answers are definitely weather dependent!

"Keeping the Baby Alive till Your Wife Gets Home: The Tough New 'how-to' for 21st Century Dads"
I'll definitely need that one, especially as I'll be the one doing the daytime child rearing and care. Which end is up on one of those things, anyway? You know, the kid....

Don't they make tablets for this sort of thing?

MonkeyMD2B - great list of books - I'm agoin' shopping!

Note - the book from hell for expectant mothers -
"what to expect when you are expecting" -
major guilt trip, with lots of info.
A much needed companion book (the two together provide a reasonable balance of info and attitude) = Pregnancy Sucks. HIGHLY recommended.
Unless you are a wanna-be grandma, then keep the latter book far far away from your children.
Its anti-evolutionary.
