Do you guys remember that commercial from the 80's? I think it was for the trash mag The National Enquirer? I guess the catch phrase resonated so well with America that they never had to do another commercial again. Seriously? A commercial for a magazine of ridiculous stories? Insane.
Anyway, I've gotten a few random questions recently so I thought I'd give you all the scoop in case you were too shy to raise your hand and ask. I may have paraphrased these questions.
What's that big black thing you shove in your baby's face every day?
It's my camera and it's a Nikon D5000. I only shoot auto and I think it does a pretty awesome job so it doesn't really motivate me to learn how to use it manually. Maybe someday. I also edit my pics in Picasa if you were wondering. But I'm sure you weren't.
What would have been your girl's name if Gabe was a lady?
The A stands for Avery. Towards the end of my pregnancy, I started waivering on this name, which I had chosen years and years ago. But it was too late, I had already done too good a job convincing John, so he was 100% on board with Avery. So if it had been a girl, we would have went with Avery. So who knows, if I do have a girl someday I may waiver again...or not.
Will the pumpkin stems last over the years or will they rot and decompose and stank up your house?
Dudes. I have no idea. This is the first year I made them. However, I got the idea from a store selling versions with real stems. I can't imagine they would sell things that would attract squirrels to your attic but who knows, maybe the manufacturer uses a special de-squirrelifying spray on them. No idea. If you make them and you get attacked by a flying squirrel next year when you go to take out your holiday decor, consider this my disclaimer.
That dress looks like a muppet on your chest, but in a good way. Where did you get it?
Ohhh you must be referring to this dress...that I wore for John's surprise 40th birthday and again for Gabe's Baptism. It's from...Target! Shocker. But it's from last winter so um, you're shit out of luck. Sorry buddy. But I'm sure PBS or Nickelodeon is selling another muppet-type ensemble. You just have to look.
Anything else you're dying to know about us? Just ask. I like to talk about myself.
