OK, So I've Been Keeping A Secret...

My wife gave birth to our first baby boy on Monday, June 11, 2007 at 8:04 AM...8 pounds, 6 ounces of pure joy. He ROCKS!!! Mother and son are both recuperating quite nicely.

In other news, I'm changing jobs (within the same company), and thus have been struggling to wrap things up (part of that "orderly transition" that is always talked about, yet never happens) in my old spot. Upside of new job: almost no travel. Downside: looooong hours, particularly at quarter-ends (oops--here comes the end of the second quarter).

I fear I'm growing ever more prone to rash decisions. Latest example: I heard a couple songs by The Doors on FM radio a couple weeks ago, and realized I hadn't listened to my old Doors LPs in years. Now, I'm looking at a 6 CD/6 DVD boxed set on for $135--no f*cking way I'm pulling the trigger on that, right?!!!? I'm not a big enough Doors fan for that, am I?!?

We'll see...

Congrats again, bro. But I must advise against spending your hard-earned $$ on a Doors box set. I mean I know Jim Morrison is an American Poet and everything, but... Isn't there an Ice Cube box set or some deluxe reissued Public Enemy editions for you to throw your money away on...?

That's a lot cheaper than the Po-lice tickets I've got for later this month!

Congrats on the rug rat!

The little Haahnster has finally arrived? Glad to hear mom and baby are doing well. Name?? Wait on the Doors thing. You should be able to get it at the used shop for half that price by the end of summer.

Oh. My. GAWD!!!!!!!!! How could you keep something this big a secret???? I'm so thrilled about Li'l Haahnster.

And I'm thrilled you're changing positions, too. Does this mean less travel, Daddio?

Oh, and The Doors suck.

Congrats and welcome to Haahnster Jr.! How's Emily like being a big sister?

(...and The Doors most definitely had their appeal. Too bad Ms. Coffey doesn't agree!)

Congratulations, buddy! ROCKS is a strange name, though.
