    2 Things and one very, very, very important Item

    ok. 1, you can help me with. 1, you may not care about. 1, you can do nothing about.




    1. I want some of those cool blue (halogen?) lights for the fog lamps on my Rodeo. I also need a good bug guard for the hood.



    1. My new Rocky Mounts bike racks are being delivered tomorrow. SAWEET!!! Too bads they are black. The Urban Camo would look layme with my Rodeo. I wanted red, but the Rocky Mounts red is too far off my car's color. Anyway, I am stoked about the racks...c(0)de/not c(0)de. Does anyone think I should charge my buddy rent for toting his bike around atop my car?


    1. this be the important one THE DOCTOR CONFIRMED MARCH 28th AS THE DATE FOR INDUCING LABOR = BABY SCARLETT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OK the racks are neat but the baby thing is bigger news.

    I trust mom and baby are fine? I bet mom is ready to be done with it. You two must be so excited. A big ealry Happy Birthday to baby Scarlett.

    Oh, I know nothing of blue halogen fog lamps, but they sound neat.

    B-Girl and baby are just fine. The doc doesn't want to take Scarlett to term. She is going to be a 10 pounder, if we do. B-Girl does not want a C-section. So, now we have a date. Totally cool.

    to try to scare you at all, but inducing labor can be kind of rough. They give drugs to start the process......problem is, her body isn't ready for it, and can tend to fight it. SO, and I saw this firsthand with my wife, she can get some pretty rough contractions and little dilation. They won't do the epidural until her cervical dilation progresses. It can be a long day. My wife was in labor for 26 hours. Just trying to prepare you. You guys'll be fine.

    Woo hoo on the baby. Baby girls rock!

    True HIDs for your car are real coin. Of course, you can always put the fake blue ones in from Auto Zone, probably like the ones you had in your slammed civic from the mid 90's. Remember? The one with the stickers, fart can, and faux-carbon fiber hood?

    Rent for hauling around a bike... don't think so. Have him chip in for gas every once in a while instead. Or tell him he owes you a beer or two.

    March 28th is a great day for a baby girl. 6 years ago my daughter was born on the 28th. 8 years ago, a friends daughter was born on March 28th!. So far both are beautiful and great kids. It's a life changer, but a good one.

    No, he's probably talking about those stupid blue-white halogen bulbs that look like HID, put out less light than plain halogen, and burn out about 10 times faster than plain halogens.

    Stick with the standard bulbs unless you actually install a true HID system, which is $$$. Not worth it.

    Great news buddy! It will be one of the most overwhelming and awesome experience in your life to see baby Scarlett being born. I'm happy for you, B-Girl and baby Scarlett. Good vibes to the whole crew.

    PS - I like racks too. (totally code)

    True...and there's no way you can be prepared for it..no way. It's sleep deprivation on a whole new level.

    The doc has been pretty up front about it. But we are ready to get it done. The day starts at 7am. The doc says it's going to be a task, but baby Scarlett is already in position and they'll be testing for dilation next week. So, we are still hopeful (grasping at straws?)

    One of my lasting memories from our second child was watching the young, handsome doctor (probably a lot like Henry f*ckin' Porter) giving my wife the cervical exam to check for dilation. Ugh. Never again.

    She got back at me when she watched my vasectomy. She offered to hold "me" out of the way so the doctor could get to the goods. I told her that's how we got to this point.

    Well, that was graphic. Yet, very entertaining.

    [email protected] The HID systems are too much. I just thought most cars had the blue Xenon bulbs. oh, well. Worthless, if there's no benefit other than cool blue lights.

    Awesome! Scarlett should come to Silly String, MD and meet our friends Violet and Ginger. Most excellent naming.
