and I thought Shelley might appreciate this:
Pregnancy Q & A
Q: Should I have a baby after 35?
A: No, 35 children is enough.
Q: I'm two months pregnant now. When will my baby move?
A: With any luck, right after he/she finishes college.
Q: What is the most reliable method to determine a baby's sex?
Q: My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she's borderline irrational.
A: So what's your question?
Q: My childbirth instructor says it's not pain I'll feel during labor, but pressure. Is she right?
A: Yes, in the same way that a tornado might be called an air current.
Q: When is the best time to get an epidural?
A: Right after you find out you're pregnant.
Q: Is there any reason I have to be in the delivery room while my wife is in labor?
A: Not unless the word "alimony" means anything to you.
Q: Is there anything I should avoid while recovering from childbirth?
A: Yes, pregnancy.
Q: Do I have to have a baby shower?
A: Not if you change the baby's diaper very quickly.
Q: Our baby was born last week. When will my wife begin to feel and act normal again?
A: When the kids are in college.
Things are still on track, and I'm definitely going home the first week in August, and shipping out to Turkey sometime soon afterwards. Beyond that, things get fuzzy.
I saw a ton of movies this weekend (what ELSE am I going to do??), and the biggest surprise was Bad Boys II! Is it believable? No, not really ... Is it too violent? Yeah... probably... Is it beautiful? Oh HELL yeah! The camera angles, cinematography, and special effects alone made this one great. I really don't like Martin Lawrence, but even he couldn't ruin this one for me!
I saw a couple others, but the only ones I want to warn you about are Monster's Ball (totally pointless) and Requiem for a Dream (too much ... something... just too much).
I know you people don't come here for movie reviews, but sadly, that's about all I've got to report right now. I'll have some pictures up soon (the FTP for my server is just not working right now), so that will at least be better than listen to my impression of Siskel (or Ebert... whichever one is still around.. I forget...)
