Puppet Sex

I was just watching "Team America: World Police" on the Roku box. Didn't get all the way through it, because the kids came home and that movie is FILTHY! Can't say that I wasn't chuckling along like some kind of adolescent. However, there's a reasonably explict sex scene that had me rolling. You haven't seen anything until you've seen marionettes... er... 'engaged'.

Otherwise, the movie is reasonably entertaining. Not a classic, by any means, but the irreverence, inappropriateness and general bad-boy-ness you'd expect from Parker & Stone is all there in spades.

Ongoing Changes

Minor milestones this morning.
  1. Eloise rode without a carseat (she's not > 60 pounds, but she is six, and the shoulder strap doesn't cut into her neck)
  2. Talked with the swim class people about how old Isaac needs to be for baby-and-me classes (3 months, get on the waitlist one month ahead)
  3. ummm. Had a third one but forgot it (I blame sleep dep)

Anyway, feeling the flow of the currents of life today. Seems like the pace has picked up even as the length of days seems longer (for this I also assign some blame to sleep dep...)

exploring wirelessness

So as you can see on the left, I've been dumping occasional tidbits onto Twitter via my blackberry I have from work.

I'm also writing this post from said blackberry. I guess in addition to a new baby around the house, I'm getting in touch with my inner blogger.

That said, I don't generally see the attraction of leaving behind a constant stream of sound bites. It's been a cool novelty, but I don't think I have a strong enough itch for self-expression to need to scratch it that way.

Twittering a birth

I didn't think I was being particularly clever by jotting notes down about Isaac's birth via twitter. I'd just joined and was messing around.

Now I know I wasn't even being that original. Googling 'twitter pitocin' led me to finding this oldest account of twitlivery of a baby on July 15, 2007. I'm a year late to the party, it seems. Also, she's a bit hard-core. Of the other dozen odd accounts, we were all husbands, and Carmen's account was the only account from the driver's seat, so to speak.
