Your tax dollars at work

In which Sig spends a lot of your money to stay in a really swanky place and web surf and play video games, which he could have done at home.

Internet Dads and Nuclear Purple Poo

I have mixed feelings about this. I feel vaguely guilty for not diligently taking advantage of the era in which we live to share the joys and highlights of Ian's discovery of the universe around him, especially on behalf of family several time zones away. On the other hand, it's not like he gave me a consent form to write on the Intarweb about the nuclear purple poo he's going to have when he finishes processing the blueberries he just ate. And thanks to the magic of the age, such stories will be around for all eternity, or at least until after the point where he gives up trying to have a serious political career because pictures of him in a hat box keep surfacing.


First, I was told I got the job. Then, there were all sorts of internal politicking things going on where Battalion tried to assert its ownership over my immortal soul by claiming that thereafter I would not only work full time at the battalion office, but would also drill there on weekends--in effect, making me one of those inferior class of people who aren't in B Company.

. . .

PS- Also, and probably of more interest and excitement in our household, Siglet is walking now. 6-7 steps at a time, but I think he only stops because we start getting excited and he doesn't want to tip his hand about just how mobile he is. He's cagey, that one.

He just looks good in hats.

He just looks good in hats.

I can't think of anything pithy to say about this picture. I swear, he has smiled more in the last 10 months than I have in the last 30 years. Every hour I spend with him, I feel like I'm being let in on the joke just a little more.




This picture is so cute it actually induces vomiting in some clinical trials.


Siglet in a box

Somebody's Christmas present is going to be ruined, but here's one of the four poses we kept from Ian's insanely expensive portraits. (Hint: "fund raiser" is never going to equal "good deal.") (Who does portraits for fund raisers, anyway?)

Ivan Sigovich is ridiculously cute. If you deny it, you should probably seek medication.


Don't go into the light!

So, of course I immediately started wondering if I was doing irreparable harm to his developing young brain, since that's the sort of things that new parents think all of the time. [If you're a new parent and you don't think that all of the time, you will now obsess over your past failure to do so and how you're a rotten negligent parent for not even worrying about your child's brain being turned to tapioca pudding by shiny music visualizations or C-SPAN or what have you.]

Round in the chamber

[Originally posted at Vox Veterana on 31 JUL 07.] asked us to answer some questions for a little interview type dealie; my responses are over here.

Since I mentioned it in the interview, I will give notice here, as well. My wife and I recently received a warning order from the doctor`s office; we are to expect reinforcement sometime in March of 2008, bringing our total family complement up to 3. My wife takes her role as a "force multiplier" seriously.

OK, I can`t think of any more terrible military metaphors for pregnancy without devolving into the realm of the truly tasteless. As it is, jokes about muzzle velocity practically write themselves over the concept of "round in the chamber."

More scribings are in the works. Have a good one, everybody.


We have forward motion.

As of yesterday, we have confirmed, sustained forward motion by the now self-propelled Siglet. I have some poor video on my cell phone which was rendered even poorer by YouTube, so we'll hold off on that for now. We REALLY need to find the power cable for our video camera, which we purchased just a week prior to his arrival and have only used a few times. Also, we need a FireWire card for the computer so we can do direct video upload. Anybody have make/model recommendations?
