Geeky room themes

So I've been trying to get excited about the baby.

I still find it really hard to look forward to being prodded at by doctors, pooping in front of strangers, and not sleeping for months.

Anyway, trying to focus on the positives. Like adorable outfits, toys, and a room theme....

For a boy, of course its going to be a Doctor Who themed room. I guess I could do that for a girl too but Im trying to think of more ideas.
Im not a huge wonder woman fan.

Any ideas?
I also like the idea of doing a Harry Potter theme... though it seems like a bit of a cop out considering I have been randomly collecting Harry Potter toys sense the books hit the US in 92.

Last day? Soo soon?

After my father in law came back from vacation with his ex wife (my husbands mother) he was so homesick for Israel that he bought a plane ticket home early.

Tonight is his last night here. I came home from work and he had cooked ALL the food in the house because he invited a couple friends over. Ummm... okey dokey, I hope they are seriously hungry because 2 people cant eat this many freaking leftovers before they go bad.

He also went to the store and stocked our fridge with wine and beer. Ok, awesome. Sooo... we ran out of juice and anything nonalcoholic a few days ago, I guess I'll have tap water.

In the bathroom I noticed hes probably been drinking all day.
Cool, last day in the US, live it up... but just so you know, Im filling the fridge with bacon next time you come to the US. I might also put cheerios in the toilet so you have something to aim for.

Guess the cam girl

So for my sketch for today I *tried* to do a quick sketch of someone I really like following.

Lets see if anyone can guess who. Thats a sure indication on if I did a good job or if it sucks.

Last day of freedom!

I havent had my own car in a little over a year. Its really not THAT bad. Except that anytime I want to go somewhere I need to wait until Mo is home if its not biking distance.

While Mo's dad has been gone he gave me permission to use his truck. For the most part I just used it to go to and from work but seeing as hes coming home tonight I took full advantage of the mobility and spent all day finding reasons to drive around. I went and bought Halloween decorations, I hit up IKEA for a new microwave stand, went to Game Stop and got Dead Island, and sat in a Starbucks for an hour just to have a pumpkin latte and read. It was a very nice day.

I figured I should have a nice last day of freedom, not only with full mobility but running around naked as well. I did everything with the doors open today. I showered with the door open, cleaned the house in nothing but my underwear, and went to the bathroom whenever I wanted...with the door open.

Im really not looking forward to Mos dad coming home. Nice guy but I really love having my space.

Back to drawing

On my other blog, 1 Locked up Spork and a Crayon I have been trying to draw something new every day for a year. I ended up taking a 2 month break after getting my new full time job. Between working all day and the whole baby thing I've been so exhausted at the end of the day that picking up anything but my laptop or a book seemed like it would break me in half.

I am happy to say that I have my energy back. Which is good but also worries me.

Anyway, I've picked up my pen and paper again and Im determined to get back on task with my sketches.

I'll be posting the sketches over at 1 Locked up Spork and a Crayon.

Also, I'll be starting on my geeky Halloween costume soon. I cant wait!

No, Im not excited

When I open my store I like to grab a cup of coffee before I go in. I havent worked there for that long but the coffee shop people were really quick to pick up on my normal order of a large espresso. 
Now my order has changed to a small espresso and after a few days they started to look at me funny. One lady finally asked me why I switched and I told her the reason for my cutting the caffeine. She instantly burst into excited squeals, congratulated me, and asked me if I was excited.  
Her happy face turned to something that very subtly said, "Your a horrible person but Im trying not to be too judgy... your going to hell."

Im seriously getting sick of that question and the reactions I get. 
No, Im not excited. I dont understand why people enjoy being tired all the time, having to pee every 10 seconds, morning sickness, this new smelling super power (ok, at times its awesome because I can smell brownies from 10 miles away but I can also smell unpleasant things and people),  crazy ass mood swings, and the thought that after carrying around a bowling ball, getting poked at and lectured by doctors, you get to push it out in front of people. Woohoo!! I cant believe I didnt do this to myself earlier! This is awesome! 

Excited for the end result maybe? That adorable screaming, pooping, hungry succubus that will probably need glasses and braces and at some point crash my car and invite all its little succubus friends to my refrigerator...... yeah, totally looking forward to it. Im sure I will love it but I will forever be reminding myself that it would have been cheaper to get a puppy.
