This site says it all...

I swear, I've SEEN some of these pictures!

And the onesie (sp?) says "Good Knight" on it! CLASSIC! Lisa knew as soon as I saw it that we would be buying them... Posted by Picasa

Over the weekend we bought our first set of baby clothes. While we didn't want sex-specific colors - how could I NOT buy something that had dragons and castles on it?!?!?! Posted by Picasa

The latest wedding present yet!

Our good friend, CVS, gave us a year's subscription to We get two downloads a month for 12 months. I've used the first ones to download "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" - a brilliant BBC4 comedy program.

While "Mornington Crescent" might leave some people cold, "Wuthering Hillocks" is brilliant. Also, the explanations about "One Song To The Tune Of Another" is something to be experienced....

A question of religion has arisen in Kansas...

So I'm happy to announce that my wife and I will be rearing our future child as Flying Spaghetti Monsterites.

I think he's giving us the finger... Posted by Picasa

It's a BOY!!! Posted by Picasa
For those of you who are looking at this confused - think of a shot taken from underneath the bum. You can see the legs making a big "V" in the middle of the picture, and if you go straight north from the cursor on the pic, you run into Mr Winky!!!

So it's no great shock...

I'm a bit of a geek (yes, I still play D&D at 35!) However, there's a couple of great sites out there that are worth an eyeball even for non-gamers:

The Order Of The Stick

Knights Of The Dinner Table

Both of these are a hoot!

Still a site that makes me giggle when I load it

How can you go wrong with The BananaPhone?

Everyone sing along now....

Is it just me...

Or does this ad seem to imply that he's used the hair color in a slightly lower place than intended?

Seems to me she's more focussed on "downtown"....

Coming this week...

is our next Ultrasound appointment. On Wednesday, we'll have our 20 week ultrasound - which, if the baby's cooperating - will tell us if it's a boy or a girl.
Since my entire side of the family has boys (my brother has 2, my sister has 1) - and my wife's side is entirely girls (by birth - brother has one, sister has one - there are two step kids, one boy and one girl) - either way, we're going to annoy half of our relatives!
Annoy is a strong term, true - but my father actually promised, at our wedding rehearsal, that if we had a girl, he'd clothe her until she was 18! And yes, we did have that on videotape!

Also coming up this week - our AFP test results. We've not heard much good about this test - apparantly a lot of false positives out there. The Alphafetaprotein test has indicators for certain types of birth defects, such as spina bifida, Down's syndrome, etc. Slightly nervous, but fingers crossed!

A Map of Wales for Eleanor...

My family is around the town of Barry, but I grew up in a little town called Bassaleg.

Another great site for Wales is centered around our claim to fame: Castles!

Productivity enhancer of the day

Thanks to Mr Fishair for the link!

The floodgates are open...

but the first link I'm going to post is where I catch up on my home country!

There's one great story that never made it to the Dave Barry blog Air Guitar PhD?

So it begins...

Well - although I've had this blog for a while (I'd used it to track my weight loss last year) I thought I'd revamp it for 2005. I'll be tracking odd sites, bits of news about my personal life, and other assorted oddities. Hope you enjoy it!
