Drinking? Diapers? Tang?
Fuck. I should have been an astronaut.

Last Recapper Standing
I'm no longer wee-capping Last Comic Standing for Television Without Pity.com. The 'caps and forum weren't getting much action (which could be said in terms of viewers of the show itself), so it's gone. I'll be wee-capping a different show soon enough and I'll be back in September, recapping Smallville between foul diaper changings.
I'm kind of relieved. I was really looking forward to LCS, but the judging/picks were so backward and the comedy so badly presented that it was really starting to grate on me. I'll keep watching, but I'm glad I don't have to keep watching so closely.

What's in the my (head) sac?
I've been keeping really busy with LCP stuff (did I mention the new show is called "AlienNation" and opens Aug. 2? It does.) and organizing my life. I still want to write a GTD entry to lay out what all I've done, but again, I've been so busy adjusting to this major life change and trying to set these habits instead of letting them fall away that it's sort of kept me from taking a step back to write about it.
Speaking of major life changes... everything right now in my life feels like it's orbiting two potential birth dates. I somehow got it into my head that when the birth happens, everything will just stop and all that activity will cease to happen.
I'm sure that'll be true for a few hours, but then everything I've heard suggests thing will be 10 times busier than before.
I'll be home for at least a week and a half (don't even get me started on how companies seem to feel about paternity leave given their paid leave/sick day policies) and I've stockpiles books and DVDs I've wanted to get to (including the new Potter which arrived Saturday in its awesome box. I didn't even pay for shipping and it still got there on Saturday. Yay, Amazon!
Everything right now is divided in my brain into "Stuff happening before the baby" and "The rest of my life." I can deal with the former. I'm not sure how anything is going to work exactly in the latter.
I realize I've held back a lot these last 8 1/2 months. Part of it is that my wife's not a huge public person and in this case, I think she's absolutely right. I haven't even told you the sex of the baby, even though it's common knowledge around my friends and co-workers. I don't know why I'm holding back. I think it's because I want the birth to be something I can announce. And because I don't want to say anything about it unless I feel I have something of significance to say.
Babies are born every day to thousands (millions?) of people. I don't want to drown in that chorus of miracle watchers.
I know something amazing is happening. For once, I don't feel that telling the world about it as it's happening is what's making it feel that way.
