Last night was lovely.

Jo, Cary, Karen and I went out last night to celebrate many and diverse events: Jo's promotion and upcoming 28th birthday, Cary's new job, Karen's new job, my new promotion, and the new house Karen and I are currently enjoying. There may be other reasons to celebrate, but the current hour of the day prevents memory from being yet green.

We ate at The Red Heifer, a restaurant that has recently opened in Bethesda. Karen has babysat for the Feld's twice so that they could go...shame that we have no babies to give to them so that they can return the favor. Despite that handicap, we went with a song in our hearts.

The food was astounding, the restaurant had pleasant atmosphere, the company was excellent, and I'M STILL FREAKIN' SICK! I'm tired of waking up early in the morning with my head stuffed. I eventually got up and looked at the clock, which told me an alarm was going to go off in a couple of minutes. So, I'm awake and ranting. How the hell are you?

I'm OK.

Hey, I can tell you how you can get a baby...

You're okay, I suck
I suspect there are multiple ways that I can get a baby. I'd really appreciate it if you not quote any of the examples given in Raising Arizona...

Steal? Who said anything about steal?

*closes the doors on the unmarked van*

And I was planning to throw in a free stereo system, too...

Not steal.... reappropriate.... borrow without permission for an undetermined duration.... liberate... Regime change...

but not steal...

Stealing is bad.

Regime change
But children have WMDs -- haven't you ever changed a diaper?

Unfortunately, yes.

Re: Regime change
Same here. I come from a big family.

It's been a while, though -- the last person whose diapers I changed was my niece, who got married earlier this year.

BTW, Sunday was fun... How much did you end up winning/losing?

Sunday was a good time, yes. I'm not sure exactly how much I started with, but I think it was around $10, and I think I walked out of there with at least $15, which is impressive considering that I lost $10 in one hand to Karyna in one hand.

But did you do it in one hand?

It's ok, that's my job... to read carefully, and make fun of you when you make mistakes....

I'm sure it's in my job description somewhere....

It's when you're losing money with both hands, hand over fist, that you need to be worried.

It's more fun with more people -- the last time I was up to the cabin for poker, there were only four players.

Then again, I won a lot more that time. Let me think this over...

(I came out about a buck ahead Sunday. I was more ahead than that the first time I quit, but then I got drawn back in before I left.)

Too bad Q doesn't like poker.

I've got an extra baby incubating at the moment. I'll name it Jacob and have it circumcised by a mohel, then hand him over.

JACOB JACOB JACOB!

I'm all about it. ;) But er... we know a lot of people with children named Jacob. Could we try for something else? ;-)

It's no fun if it's not a Jacob! Maybe it's a Karen. Every Jewish woman I know in MD is a Karen. Really.

You don't have to steal any babies, just wait until my proposed children are teens and you can have them :)
