Happy New Year

Filed under: analog — mhoye @ 8:50 pm

Happy new year, all. I’m freshly back from Toronto, and then Kingston, where I spent the holidays with Arlene’s family which, as previously mentioned, was tres wierd. Arlene’s company, as always, was far better than I deserve.

I see that I missed a few things, not the least of which was Chris and (I suspect mostly) Darcy’s baby shower, at which Alex took a number of nice photos. Darcy was, at last report, huge, and both she and Chris are very smart, so I believe I am not alone in expecting a fourteen pound infant born fluent in world history and capable of influencing the outcome of a die roll with the power of its disproportionately large mind. I for one welcome the arrival of our new infant-sized master.

In the back of mind, I’ve been putting together a list of “trouble words” and their corresponding owner. By “trouble words” I mean those things that the baby probably shouldn’t be uttering early in life, but that they’re likely to pick up anyway; for example, if the first complete sentence that this child utters is “that is such crap”, we’ll all know that Mehmet is the person who should receive the corresponding beating. I think I might be in the clear on this one, since most of what I have to say is incomprehensible noise already.
