But I don't have baby fever

Bad Santa = 7/10. I just wasn't in the mood for this type of humor, although it was quite funny. I just wanted to kick some sense into Billy Bob. I have to agree with Amanda Z's 1.5 year old post: that kid is THE coolest ever. Well, except for the snot-encrusted nose at the beginning.

Congrats to my friend C. A. & her husband C. A. (huh, never noticed that their initials are the same) who found out Friday she's barely pregnant with her first baby. I'm super dooper excited for her because she wants to have this baby in a specific month and it's going to end up working out like that if all goes well in the pregnancy. I love my her lots, but she said a really bizarre thing to me on the phone when she called to tell me she was expecting. Keep in mind she's VERY conservative/knows I'm not married/knows I'm SO not ready for kids/believes in thinking about things before you do them:

C.- Now that A. and I are pregnant, you need to get pregnant so we can all be pregnant at the same time!
Me- Umm...but...umm...I'm not married and...
C.- (cutting me off) Oh, just go get some rings, make it official, and get it on or something.
Me- I've been with him for TWO months C., not THREE YEARS like you and your husband and I think I'm probaly not going to be ready for kids as quickly as you and A. were.
C.- Ahh man...

It's not so much that I find the thought of marriage, kids, etc disturbing. It's the fact that she thinks I should have a baby so that we all three can be knocked up at the same time. Wouldn't that make "my baby" a vanity child or something? I know she was kidding (at least I think she was), but still. The scary thing is that I'm pretty sure women have planned to get pregnant at the same time before. How sad.

Wow...and guys think we're bad for going to the restroom in pairs! I would advise against this (although I know I don't even need to bother). Besides, I've been working on you to buy a house, so I am first in line for your major life steps! LOL. By the way, the one next door to us is for rent. The lady just got a job offer she couldn't refuse and has to move to California.

Oh, and if you HAD a fever it would be for what?...

...That's right...MORE COWBELL! (Sorry, I just can't let it go.)

I would say it's a country thing, but I've heard of women doing this in big cities and suburbs. Talk about being on the same cycle! And it's a little disconcerting, since they're treating babies as if they were Ipod's or something. Must be the season, since 3 women I work with, my sister and my sister-in-law are all/recently were pregnant.

Ha! Then they could go to "A Pea In the I-Pod" at Utica Square!
