What falls on the floor, stays on the floor

By kate on January 29th, 2006

I’m at that point in pregnancy where bending over is uncomfortable to impossible (depending on Zippy’s position and what I’ve eaten). Sometimes I make such a huffy puffery putting on my shoes that Steve comes over and ties them for me.   My worst pregnancy complication at the moment, though, is the hand and wrist […]

Here’s a humorous list of baby names from McSweeney’s. I particularly like “Stevelyn”. I’ve been too busy to post anything lately, but there isn’t much news.

Branding & the Baby

By steve on December 29th, 2005

[this entry by Steve]   Kate and I are fairly anti-brand-name. Whenever we buy a new bag, we take scissors or a felt pen to the logo to make it disappear. I did the same with the stickers on my laptop. I believe the value of something is intrinsic in the object itself, not in […]
