The old How's your Father

It seems like high time for a general checking in and a good ol' how's your father:

• Amanda is now about 8 months pregnant and looking and feeling good. The midwife says everything is right on track and we're getting more and more excited for our June 1st delivery date!

• We went down to the Dominican Republic for vacation a few weeks ago. It was really relaxing - we stayed at a no-kids resort (our last chance!) The weather was dodgy on days, but it didn't stop Amanda from lying out by the pool, or me from enjoying a 9:30am Coco Loco.

Yeah, I said it.

• The following week was all about getting the apartment ready for the baby. We emptied what had been simply known as the "back room" and then painted the walls to transform it into "the Nursery". I also assembled the changing table. All this activity made me feel very much like a father to be. Amanda accuses me of nesting, but I disagree.

• It's official: come this July I'll be moving on to a new technology job at the Spence School! It's been a great run at Montessori, but this is a welcome change. And, you know, I like grouping major life events within a few weeks of each other. It's good for the system.

• We started our birthing class with BKLYN Birth, which was good. It's 5 sessions so there's lots left to learn. We also had a 4-hour orientation at the Birthing Center we're hoping to use. Very educational.

• Tonight we're off to my folk's house for the first night of Pesach (Passover to all the goys in the crowd tonight). I'm hoping to raid my dad's vinyl collection because...

• I have a DJ gig on the books for Saturday April 25th at Last Exit - flier and details to follow, but mark your calendars now.

• There's rumor of another Belvedere gig in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

• This Friday we'll be going to the Loser's Lounge show featuring the music of Ms. Dolly Parton. Very excited as I've never been to a Loser's tribute show, or to Joe's Pub. I'll report back with details.

• And lastly, I'd be remiss if I didn't offer up some link or video to keep you happy. I'm going to give you this little gem - a parody of those NY Times Weekender ads.

The runner up to share was this video compilation of Mariah Carey high notes. If you're looking for 6 and a half minutes of goodness, click the link.

Hope all is well and stupidfresh with all of you out there. Talk soon.
