Waiting on Jude

Like Tom Petty said…

The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part

Bags are packed and in the car.  And that car has a full tank of gas (insert Blues Brothers reference here: ________________ ).  Keturah has stopped working.  The crib arrived this past Saturday.  All camera gear packed and fully charged.  We are ready. 

We are ready.  Yeah, right.  That’s the most ridiculous thing I could possible write in anticipation of having another baby.  There is no way you can be truly ready or prepared this.  All that stuff above I wrote that indicated I’m ready?  It’s all crap.  Being ready for this means expecting the unexpected. Being ready means for a baby you welcome the winging it that’s about to come. 

While I’m thinking about it, let me just say that this feels vastly different from the first time Keturah bore me a child.  The main, most obvious difference is that this time around, we found out in advance that we are having another boy.  And we’ve already given him the name Jude.  The stuff that I’ve been writing to this blog and via Twitter wouldn’t be nearly the same if we didn’t have a name.  Imagine this blog title as Waiting on TBD.  Not nearly as fun.

Oh, this figures…iPod just shuffled to “You’ve Got to Hold Your Love Away”

Here I stand head in hand
Turn my face to the wall
If she’s gone I can’t go on
Feelin’ two-foot small

School of Fish


Video of very cool school of fish I took Saturday at the Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco. Totally reminds me of the machines entering Zion in the last matrix movie.

Coastside Tweetup. Take 2

It’s on.  Again.

Another Coastside Tweetup.  This one takes place on Tuesday, July 22 at 7 pm at Half Moon Bay Brewing Company390 Capistrano Rd. Half Moon Bay, CA 94019

NEW PLAN!  New time and new location.

New time is Tuesday, July 22 at 5:45 pm

New location is at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, near the firepits in the back.

Blame it all on Scoble.  😉

This tweetup includes Twitter superstar Pistachio – who’s visiting from the eastern coast and just might be given a chance to sign my high school yearbook . (It’s a long story)

Thanks to Francine Hardaway for once again stoking the fires on this.  Everyone is invited.

Helpful hint: If you’re at a loss for how to spot the Tweetup gang once you’re there, just shout out “Does anyone have an iPhone?” If 50% of a circle raises their hand, thats probably the group you’re looking for.
