Off to España!!!

Only two flights and two cab rides away from a cold beer and jamon in the balcony looking out over the beach!

So tired

Leyli missed her mom last night.  She'd make little noises until I went to her crib, and would bust out crying when she saw me.  I think she wants Sandee back from Ottawa ASAP.

Hmmm...  This keyboard looks comfortable enough as a temporary pillow kdjhf lwigifbdbaff ;weih fjL a hakjh lkjh kjh lakj iuaph

Never Again!

Sandee and I Dick Clark-ed it on New Year's Eve while Darya and Shiva had to choose from multiple parties to attend.  Lame.

This may call for a New Year's bash in twelve months just to re-establish our claim to the night.  Before you know it, they'll be asking us to babysit for them while they hit the festivities.

Uggggh. This stings.

This after losses to Vermont and a poor Hawaii team  Coppin State was 1-10 before this game.

Much soul-searching and calls for Coach Hobbs' head among the Colonial faithful .  I personally don't think it's time to pull the plug on the coach, but he definitely needs some help to try to reconnect with the players.  Hopefully it's not back to Square One (or at best Square Three) for the program.  The best bet is that they pull it together and make a nice run through the A-10 schedule, but it's hard to see how Hobbs will regain the team's attention now.

Thanksgiving in DC

It was, in some ways, a traditional Thanksgiving dinner... then again.

Copious amounts of tapas, multiple bottles of champaign ('cause that's how the aid workers do it in Afghanistan), a running live guitar soundtrack for the events courtesy of Ryan , home-made pizza, many pomegranate martinis and a whole bunch of Iranians trying to make the holiday their own added a lot of spice to the weekend.

Some pix in the album below from the many hundreds taken.

We shall name her...

...Zeitoon (Olive)!!

At least until she's born and we can come up with a proper name. Meanwhile, the name (in booth languages) seems very fitting and I'm almost bummed we can't keep it. There's something to be said for hippie kid names.

As always, the latest and best of the sonograms are in this Picasa album .
