Mama-to-be and her board
The 100 Unsexiest Men of 2007
Oh man, this kept me chuckling for a good 30 minutes this morning. I really should have been getting dressed, washing my face, etc. while Adrian was napping in his swing, but instead I was glued to this:
I love the titles they assign. Bill O'Reilly is simply "Worst Person in the World". Heehee.
And don't forget to check out selected video clips from this year's picks. John Basedow's excerpt is fairly chilling, is he serious?

Adrian's on the potty, I'm on the news!
Here I am in my living room, being interviewed by KGO Channel 7 ABC News about Infant Potty Training. Because there were still a few people out there who didn't associate my name with baby pee and poo, or baby carriers. Fame is a weird thing.

Model baby part two
Here's the ad that was sent out from Go-Go Babyz the other day. Recognize that mama and baby? Normally I try not to model when I'm 25 pounds overweight, but I made an exception for this shoot.
Dahling! I am the Vanna White of wheeled devices for carseats.
Oh, by the way, I don't *always* wear this same outfit, photographic evidence to the contrary. Those photos were taken on the same day, that's all. I *do* wear those jeans almost every day, because they are one of the....well no, actually they are the ONLY pair of pants I own that fit my "enhanced" post-partum figure right now. I refuse to buy any more clothing, since weight loss is *just* around the corner, I'm sure. (fingers crossed)

This is Adrian's first modeling job. We went to go pick up a shipment of Carseat Travelmates at the manufacturer, and they asked if Adrian could model for their newest product, the Infant Cruizer.

Peeps for Passover
Hysterical series of photos using Marshmallow Peeps to illustrate the plagues listed in the Passover story.

Pimp my ride
Ooooooh, I love my new (used) car! Yes, the 2005 VW Passat Diesel Wagon is in the house, getting 36 mpg around town. It's super-swank, luxurious, spacious and everything else. It even has really dark tinted windows, a boon and a blessing for fair-skinned folks like me and the boys. That was one of the things that I was really sad to give up in my Hybrid Civic....my "limo dark" tinted windows. Cha, I didn't have to give it up at all!
Dan got 45mpg bringing it home from Petaluma. Sweet! We haven't filled up with biodiesel yet, but I'm looking forward to visiting the local biodiesel retailer here in San Jose and getting our first tankful.
I love the tailgate. So useful and comfy, and perfect for changing diapers. I put a sheepskin in the cargo area and Bugs is all over it. The second I open the hatch for anything he jumps in and starts lounging.
This car is SOLID. Driving it is like driving a tank, compared to our lightweight hybrid. But it's still very zippy when you step on the gas. There's a little bit of a diesel lagtime, but once the power kicks in...whiplash time!
I do miss my engine turnoff at idle, but oh well. I love the new wheels. My ride is PIMPED, baby!
