This Week’s Delights
I am spending the early morning hours sippin’ on my sizzerb (coffee) and scamming my closet for an outfit that’s office-appropriate for the tropics. Not because I’m attending a meeting in Barbados (wouldn’t that be the jam?), but because the office I use on Fridays is heated until just boiling. I occasionally wear mittens and scarves in the other office I use in the same building, so it’s like the heat that’s intended for the whole place is somehow concentrated in one small window-less room. Doesn’t everyone have this complaint about their office? When will they get it right? Stop the madness!
But it’s all good. Because it’s Fri-day! What-what?!
Everybody say heyyyyyyy. Heyyyy. Say heyyy, heyyy. Heyyyy, heyyy. Okay, that’s enough. My prediction was correct: I can’t pull that off even in print.
It’s also my best friend’s birthday. Hi Callie! Happy birthday! I know you can’t check internet at work (booooo), but maybe you’ll get this message before you go (hooray!).
Well, this shaped up to be a nice little week. Here are a few highlights:
*But the best news this week–and in 2013 so far– was the birth of Kerri and Nick’s baby boy. I got a text at 9:30 Tuesday night saying he was born, but didn’t find out what they named him until Wednesday morning, when they introduced the world to their baby Desmond. Righteous name, right? They were inspired by the Beatles’ “Ob la di”, but naturally, when I first heard it, I thought they got it from Lost.
When Vin woke up, we played the “Guess the baby’s name” game.
ME: “Okay, so the baby shares a name with a TV character. The show is not currently in production.”
VIN: “Uhhhh, Chandler? Kramer?”
VIN: “What? It’s a name.”
ME: “This could take too long. It’s a character from Lost.”
VIN: “John Locke? Sayid? Hurley…”
ME: “Hurley? Who would name their baby Hurley?”
VIN: “Hey! Hurley was named Hurley.”
ME: “Yeah, but that’s because he was a charact…oh nevermind, they named the baby Desmond.”
VIN: “Oh yeah, that is better than Hurley.”
Can’t wait to meet the handsome little brotha! Hope you guys have a swell weekend on tap!
