Here’s a bunch of pictures of our little dumpling.

You know how many time zones there are in the Soviet Union? Eleven.

Well, PolenBaby #1, anyway.


Meet Harold Martin Polenberg, aka Harry, born at 7:03 pm on February 17th. He weighed eight pounds, five ounces, and was twenty and a half inches long. Baby is cute and cranky (just like his dad), Mom had to have a c section to get him out and had a rough go of it in general, but is feeling much better. (I would like to blog about the last 48 hours in general, but I think I should clear it with her first in case there’s stuff I would want to say that she’d rather not have put on the blog.)

I am stating for the record that while I will likely put up a lot of pictures, there is no way in hell I am blogging about what kind of baby food is his favorite, or how many poops he takes. Not a fricking chance. This blog will continue to be me bitching about poker and work, and funny links, and awesome pictures of Hamilton, who has lately been doing this really cute thing where he sticks his head into a mug and makes a low sound just so it will echo in it - I will have to try and get it on camera. But I digress. I will be a doting father, but not a dolt, at least when it comes to blogging.

I’ve had about five hours of sleep over the last two nights, so I’m going to go pass out now.

Babywatch continues. . .

and nothing is going right here today at the office. As I just kvetched on Facebook, while I was in the middle of doing three different things in three different programs, my computer decided to randomly reboot, making me have to wait for it to come back up and running before starting everything over. I can’t look up information on various internal programs - they’re all not working. One of my coworkers is acting like a two year old because a reservation I correctly made for him does not list the exact room type he wants, and another hotel tried to put him in a room with a double bed. Perish the thought. Unless you’re having an orgy while on your business trip, and I guess anything is possible, what freaking difference does it make if you get two double beds or one king or queen? You’re a skinny man, you can fit in a double bed. I have better things to do than explain to you that hotels do not guarantee room type. I know this. I worked in hospitality for years. Fuckface.

PSB had some pre-contractions last night while watching Avatar. It might have been that PolenBaby #1 just wanted to ride on the back of a birdie. We will do our best to not have him sit on Hamilton.

Awesome starting hand plus incredible flop plus no action equals I hate everything.

Happy Birthday PolenMom!!!

Have a wonderful day! Hope your eyes are all better soon!

(The Polenparents are dealing with a horrible case of conjunctivitis, which they are just starting to get over. They are no longer contagious, at least. . .)
