boy with a silver earring

Yesterday was a very exciting day.
mzdt came by my workplace and got greeted most appropriately by hordes of screaming children, and he came bearing a bucket which delighted me to no end.

And I got to make him Office Tea with Fairtrade Sugar in it, and then we got to walk around Queens Park a bit and have Vegetable Food at a Lebanese cafe.

And then in the evening I slouched on the sofa, ate pizza and watched Life Before Birth which was excellent [some ace ultrasound footage of babies pulling faces] except the bit right at the end depicting the actual birth which was a tad traumatic viewing.

Z: Argh! There's a thing coming out of that woman's vagina!
N: Aaaaaaaaargh! Aaaaaaaaaaarghhh! Aaaaaaaaaaaaargh!
Z: It's like an alien with hair!
N: Aaaaaaaaaaaaargh! Aaaaaaaaaaargh! Aaaaaaaaaargh!
Z: Oh my God, there's a whole baby's head sticking out of woman!
N: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaarghh! Aaaaaaaaaaaargh! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!
Z:That midwife is pulling the baby out by ITS HEAD!
N: Aaaaaaaaaaaargh! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh! Aaaaaaargh!
Z: I am so glad I will never have to experience that kind of pain.
N: Don't worry honey, you will get to experience other kinds of pain.

And then I went on to pierce his ear. Well re-pierce it [he already had a hole in it, just hadn't worn an earring for years]. He squeaked theatrically but the sight of him sporting one of my long, dangly girly earrings {z:* mmmmmm, jangley*} was one of the funniest things I'd ever seen and it pretty much stayed hilarious all right up until the next morning when we discovered that his ear was infected [oops] and somewhat painful [oops] when i tried to take the earring out [z: aaaaaaargh! n: you squeal like a girl. z: because it hurts *sniff*]. But thanks to my self-injurious past I had plenty of antiseptic supplies within easy reach so it was all sorted.

AND as a bonus as he was changing for work this morning he forgot his tracksuit bottoms in my room. [queue EVIL LAUGHTER]. Ah, as part of my new tactics I shall secrete them somewhere dark and hidden where he'll never find them again MWAHAHAHAHAHHA and then stealthily pick off his tracksuit bottoms one by one until THERE ARE ONLY PROPER TROUSERS LEFT.

mwaqhahahahahahahahahaha.
if i had mustaches I'd be twirling their ends right now.

The birth scene seemed awfully tame to me.
Tom had to had a vacuum attached to his head to pull him out. And there was a lot more blood.

Aaaaaaaaaargh! Aaaaaaaaaargh! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!

I hope your wife had at the very least access to some very good drugs.

She was too dilated too quickly for an epidural so had to rely on N2O gas. Unfortunately, though the initial dilation was really quick Tom then hung around for ages. She had to have an IV drip to try to speed it up (didn't work). Actually she was on 2 drips, cause the first one didn't find the vein, or something.
The blood came from the episiotomy, which wasn't pleasant... better than a caesarean though.

you're taking a perverse delight in making me traumatised, aren't you?
oh good grief, i just looked up episiotomy on google and then wished i hadn't.

this is exactly why I skived off the Obs & Gynae rotation in med school o_O

Heh - my mum [a surgeon of the old school] maintains that men should not attend their children's births [something to do with preserving the Mystique of the Woman] so I'm always interested to hear from people who did :D

I knew it!!!
Everytime I lived with a female, some aspect of my wardrobe would inevatibly shrink. "Oh, it's not me" they would say. I just knew it. Women are the Underwear Gnomes.

*shields eyes*

actually... here's a dirty secret. i own a few tracksuit bottoms myself and have been known to wear them. *gasp*

i don't mind tracksuit bottoms completely so long as they actually look flattering upon the figure of a person.
[queue yesterday's conversation wth z: "Those aren't tracksuit bottoms, they are pyjamas." N: "They are tracksuits honey. Just pretty ones. See, it says ACTIVE on them. They can't be pyjamas".

i think it's easier to achieve with females though and wide legged tracksuit hipster.

like the bin perhaps?

tracksuit bottoms are made for exercising, not for everyday wear...really

ah thank you!
it feels so good to have women understand! :)

although i'd say liverpool is a great place for awakening tracksuit-hatred in a person. ;)

I watched Life before Birth too, but only lasted 45 minutes. I got bored of all the padding footage of a woman's tummy going up an escalator and swimming and so on. Plus I guess I've just lived through it all a bit too recently for it to be any kind of news. It just went on for so damn long, which is a shame because I reckon it must have become more interesting towards the end! Mainly I wanted to see the 4D pics of a baby in the womb and turn to The Boy and go "That's what Item was like", which I did do, a bit.

The part that will stay with me was the footage of the identical twins, one with its bottom in the face of the other one. That was lovely.

Yes it was :)
It was cute to see them jostling each other.
