Another thing to enjoy...

Blade Runner most especially because it allows you imagine drinking spirits (like gin) with impunity.  Tomorrow shall tell.  Avoid We Own The Night.

One more fucking day at work and this year of it is OVER.  Of course the same shit will still be there next year, in an all too brief 10 days time.  Still 2008 is shaping up to be a cracker.  And you can't have crackers without a sacrifice or two. 

Have a good holiday kids, all 0 of you reading this (; and lets see if we can't swing the numbers in 2008!



Ha! - The Mathematical Proof!

Look at the statistics below. They make me laugh. Blogs are selfish.
Don't treat them otherwise, just fucking enjoy them!

A Bi-Monthly Rhythm

It appears that I only blog every 2nd month. Three posts in half a year. Not a very good average...

--

I think it may have something to do with Google Reader which has organised my web based readings away from sidonia.net (where I used to link to all my favorite blogs etc.). Means I don't visit this space often and can aviod the 'guilt' of not utilising it.

--

Many things on the boil at the moment.

Work is going OK. Embroiled in a project which is equal measure frustration, stress and satisfyingly busy.

As per last post (now a further two months along) Sal is pregnant. This is by far an away the most exciting thing that has ever happened in my life (that I have chosen to do). Six months is a long time to be excited, but it remains, changes and progresses and I have no doubt it will continue to build till the end of March when the little babe pops out into the world and says hello! Can't wait.

I expect with the plans afoot regarding the birth and thereafter, that I will begin to use this space more often as an area for my musings (unless I'm inundated with nappies and lack-o-sleep etc.). Till then I expect that I'll continue to ignore its existence.

For Xmas I am off to Morocco (again) to go riding in the Atlas Mountains. How cool is that? I say VERY COOL. Will try to feel obligated to let you know how that goes.

A father's perspective of pregnancy is changed irreversibly when he feels the baby kicking for the first time. Try it sometime!

--

Sal is in Perth (Australia) this week! Then in Nelson (NZ) for a week and a bit to celebrate Xmas with her folks. The potential grandparents (mine included) are convening in Nelson to 'inspect' the bump. I'm very happy about this, but sad not be there to take part in this family event.

At times I have felt very selfish and irresponsible coming to the decision to have kids. I did it without consulting my side of the family, and once the pregnancy became a reality, I found the idea of telling my family difficult. I was projecting my own insecurities about having a child onto their response. When I did tell them, they were only positive and supportive. Of course!

To have them rally together to inspect the bump makes me even more grateful that we are having a kid. I feel a bit as if it has 'allowed' our respective folks and extended family to move on from thinking of Sal and me as not just long term boyfriend and girlfriend but as part of the family--there to stay, there to be supported. And it is very cool to think that active decisions I've/we've made have the backing of the tribe. This is basic life at its best.

--

Anyway, after making rash statements like "I'm not going to drink while Sal is pregnant" I am off to prepare for a Saturday drinking session. Rest assured, I've had plenty of practice in the last 6 months...

Little one (if you read this in the years to come) as well as current readers: this Dad (to be) will often not live up to his words, but he means well and wonders if this is enough?
