The Blossom-In-Law Jules is in labor! Wooohoo! It might be a little early in the term but no one seems too worried so late tonight or early tomorrow morning I shall be an Auntie (as opposed to an Uncle, which I also am). Mom is utterly chuffed. My brother Mark is exhausted already, the poor bastard. Honestly: I can't wait to have someone to make tutus for.
Like a complete bonzo frickin' idiot, I've forked over the handknits waaaay before any shower was planned so I am now empty-handed. This is par for the course as I am horrible at showers of all kinds that don't actually involve soap. I usually show up with a carton of smokes and a twelve pack and everyone is their flowered frock wonder who invited the lesbian. Not that I mind.
