As announced in other Web2.0-ish places, my darling wife and I are expecting our first child.  Coincidentally, our pals Erika and NTodd are also expecting their first child at roughly the same time! Eerie.

As he’s wont to do, the Toddler’s hyping this for all it’s *worth*. As noted in his post, our expected due date is 11/1, while there’s is 10/23.  What we’d like from you, our faithful readers, is to pick your own dates! What better way to live vicariously through semi-anonymous bloggers’ personal lives!?!  NTodd’s picked Halloween for both of us, while I am going out on a limb and choosing 10/30 for us, and 10/29 for them.

As mentioned, the only prize is the pride in nailing 1-365 odds.  So, good luck, and don’t forget to lavish us with all sorts of cutesy baby crap.

No, it’s not one of those “Which character from ‘9021o’ are you?” quizzes from Facebook.  The Center for American Progress has put out a “How Progressive Are You?” quiz.  I don’t think it claims to be scientific, or anything.  But it’s a fun way to kill a few minutes.

For the record, my “ideological score”  was 338/400, which, apparently, makes me extremely progressive.  Okay.

I ran across this article in the NYT last night and counted how many times John McCain’s name appeared (6).  Then I went back and counted how many times Barack Obama’s name appeared (3).

Get over it, media.
