Okay... Here's The News

So, I last left you with a major cliffhanger, telling you about some big news.

I then went radio silent for a bajillion years.

Now, this was not an act of laziness on my part. I am totally cool with just telling you when I'm being lazy.

I'm actually quite proud of it.

Things have been hectic as hell around here and it all relates to the big news. I have been working sun up to sun down for the past few weeks, and it's just not leaving me a lot of time.

Those of you who asked if I'm spending all of my time playing WoW...

I'm not even going to dignify that with a response.

I thought you knew me.

No, things have been rocked pretty well down to the foundations here. I haven't even had much time to play FFXI or even craft.

You know... Other than the hours when I'm supposed to be helping players.

I think they're actually learning to help themselves. It's a growth experience for them.

That guy stuck behind that table in San d'Oria? I think he's starting to like it there.

It's a nice table.

He even has a chair. He can't actually sit in the chair, but it's there and I think that's enough for him. Someday, far in the future, if we give you guys the ability to use chairs, he will be envied for his chair-adjacent prison.

Anyway, the big news. I know you've been dying to know.

I know that because a lot of people have e-mailed me asking about it.

So, I'm going to tell you.

I'm going to tell you the news.

Tomorrow.

Kidding, kidding. Put down the torches.

*ahem*

Susan's pregnant.

Huzzah! I am going to be a father again!

I'm also in the happy phase right before I figure out how much damned work and how many awful disgusting jobs come with being a parent.

Totally ignoring that part.

We have spent the past few weeks getting our house ready, painting the spare bedroom a nice gender neutral color.

I hope our baby isn't gender neutral.

If it is though, that room is appropriately painted.

Honestly, we're really happy about it. I don't even care what we have.

As long as it's a boy.

And not gender neutral.

I thought for a minute you were trying to say you'd spent the last few weeks hard at work getting her pregnant. I was thinking "damn, what a rough couple weeks!" Then I read about getting the room ready and all. That's too bad.
At any rate, Congratulations!!!
... sucker.

I see an April fools comming.

and then susan got mad, vol. 8

remember the time she got pregnant AGAIN?

i still left the room, ate around her, and complained about how long time was taking...

what? i was making a reference to last time, and the blog. i thought she'd find it funny. she is after all going through a lot... i figured she could handle some humor to relax...

(months pass)

and that's when i heard it. 2 soft gurgles...

on a completely unrelated note, can you sell a baby on ebay? buy 1 and get one free! you think that'll work?

and let's not forget about reading to your new child that creepy-ass book about that mom who travels to her child's house with a ladder strapped to the top of the station wagon...

or that other book....

"goodnight moon. goodnight stars. goodnight rarabs. goodnight noobs. goodnight bowl of mush..." (i think i might have gotten that wrong... my memory isn't dead on with it... long time since i read it...)

You know, I'd like to say congratulations, but I'm feeling more of an "April Fools!" moment here. Then again, you'd probably tell the truth and make it sounds like a prank. Either way, I'm sort of stumped on whether you're serious.

 
At 11:39 AM, Blogger Hunter said...

That's great news! Congrats to both of you!

 
At 11:47 AM, Blogger Hylian said...

oh... yeah... april 1st. hmmm... AH WAIT! techincally, ya didn't get me! all i did was add further humor to the idea. i never said i believed him! hahahahah! *dodged the bronto' on that one, Barn...* - fred flintstone

wanna know what's funny? i'm sure susan will read this and then come up with her own april fool's joke just to spite this entry. you know, like the old "pop a hole in the johnny when no one's lookin" trick. ho ho what a gag!

hey dave, here's a question for susan: how bad is it givin birth to a baby born with that GM helmet on?

 
At 12:31 PM, Blogger George said...

Congratulations both!

And here I thought it was something important..

Ah well. At least we know you're still getting laid....or were....

Um...something like that.

 
At 12:25 AM, Blogger tyranastrasz said...

And here I thought it would be something about the book you mentioned a while back.

Oh well, this is more awesome (for you)! Congratulations!

 
At 2:40 PM, Blogger Jakk Frost said...

Well, since he posted is on March 31st, it can't count as april fools, so...

Congratulations Dave and Susan!
