off to the US

It’s 5:21 in the morning and we are preparing to leave for our trip to the US. We are taking the train to Seoul, checking in for our flight at the train station (in central Seoul, 70 km from the airport!) and then taking the special airport train out to Incheon. Then it’s a nearly–13-hour flight to Chicago…with a baby. Dear god, let him be sleepy and non-fussy for the flight!

He's been smiling like this for a while, but it's surprisingly difficult to get a photo of his big beaming smiles. This is the first good photo we've gotten.

popular with the ladies

We just spent a couple days at the hospital for some (planned, minor) surgery for Alexander. In some ways, it was nice being there: one of the best ways to get him to calm down is to walk around with him — we don’t have a car, so we can’t drive him around until he falls asleep. Here in our tiny apartment, “walking around” is basically “walking in small circles”, but at the hospital, there are lots of long corridors to walk up and down.

Alexander was universally adored by the nurses (all of whom are women, most in their late 20s to 30’s). I don’t know if I hope or fear that he be that popular with girls when he’s older.

He went through the whole thing very well. Even when he was sore from the surgery, groggy from anaesthesia, and with a raspy throat from having a respirator, he was much better than I expected. Today he’s pretty much back to normal.

not quite what I had in mind

danae and Alexander are currently at the hospital. He's had a hernia since birth and the surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning, but they had to check in tonight for preparations.

So, mom and baby are at the hospital and I'm here at home. I've spent two months hoping to get a peaceful, full night's sleep...but this isn't quite what I had in mind.

hope everyone back in the Twin Cities is okay

Holy cow, a tornado just beat the hell out of Minneapolis. I hope all our friends back in the Twin Cities are okay.

to my Apple-fan friends:


I’ve bought plenty of Apple products myself, but I’m starting to see a pattern: I buy Apple stuff when it’s newer and the best option, but then eventually something better comes along. In 2004 I bought a Powerbook; at the time, I still found Linux on a laptop to be a bit too annoying — but now it’s much better, and my next laptop will run Linux from the beginning. I also bought an iPod when it was the best digital music player, but now I have a Sansa Clip+ that’s way better than anything Apple has. danae has an iPad, which I also generally like, but I suspect in a couple years there will be an Android tablet that I will like much better.

So, tl;dr: despite owning a bunch of Apple things, I claim that it doesn’t cause a religious reaction in my brain. All YOU people, on the other hand… :)

perhaps there's an alternative

Or you could, I dunno…BUY A NEWSPAPER and get your very own copy.

Also, I am definitely in agreement with David Sirota on the immediate reactions.
