This (bun) just in (the oven)...

Hi folks...Sorry I've been so negligent in providing the world with my incredible insights into nothing and commenting on irrelevancies apropos of nothing. The thing is, you, see, I am with child. I'm sorry I've kept it from you, but I wanted to wait until the magical "safe to tell" point...end of first trimester...which is not really that magical or that safe.

So there you have it: bun in oven, 3 months gone.

I have been sick/tired/nauseous/dry heaving and, well, that all takes up a lot of time. It was San Francisco that did this to me, I just know it. (And my husband prolly had something to do with it too.)

We are very, very happy about it, despite my crappy barf-riddled attitude at the moment. I will write a long post soon with more details than you ever wanted to hear about my pregnancy, wherein I will imply that mine is the only pregnancy that has ever been or ever will be. Until then (and it will be soon,) I'll be quietly gestating and waiting for the "glow" to hit. Thanks for dropping by!

So what's the ETA on the kid?

(Is it still 9 months or have the powers that be shortened it so you're forced to bring forward those purchases?)

Can only speak for meself but I'm not sure we need tooo many of the gory details. Just the tidy, cute stuff.

Names are clean, dry and ok.

Towel over the shoulder, just to be safe.

I'm not as curious about the first name as I am about what the last name will be! ;-)

Thanks Deep! Not sure about names yet, although we do have a short list...but you know how it is, you tell people and they're all "Oh, I was gonna name MY kid that!" or "Oh, I knew an Ingelbert* and he was such an ASS!"

ETA is Aprilish.

I'll try to keep it clean. But I"m not making any promises...

*example only

Gizzy...I'm curious about that too. :^) We shall see...How did you guys approach it?

Surnames yes....

I've heard that in quebec there's legislation that the woman keeps her maiden name. True? Do people object? Can the church deal with it?
Here in Oz the norm is that she takes his.

My local paper, The Age, had a fun piece on the issue a few weeks ago. Here's a snippet...
"Why would you do something so drastic simply because you decided to delude yourself it was easier? Because you are deeply insecure, deeply conservative or deeply stupid. And in deep denial."

Needless to say the Letters to the Editor page was inundated...

The whole piece:
The writer is a bit over the top. Well very OTT. Let's just say she rubs a lot of people the wrong way. Subtlety and diplomacy are not her tactics...

And the paper's online forum "discussed" the phenomenon of surname changes at

Look forward to your review of aforementioned.
At least a word on surnames in QC.

Ta dahl!

Deep: In Quebec, you have to legally change your name in order to take your husband's name. So the default is to keep your maiden name. But I was married in Ontario, where you can do the name change for free. However, I opted to keep my "maiden" name for lots of reasons, not least of which is a feminist dislike of the chattel system that drove last-name-changing in the first place.

I haven't had a chance to flip through that article you linked, but I will...the quote is intriguing to say the least.

Thanks J.Blues!!! Hope you guys are well.

Thanks Manuel!

When J. popped out, he looked more like me than M. so we gave him my last name.

Seriously though, I really don't know. I didn't insist or suggest...

I'm so happy for you! (better you than me - ha ha) Really, congratulations. Sorry about the barfy part... you should almost be past that now :) Go ahead, blame it on San Francisco, it's okay.
