Last week, I found myself constantly checking the news on my Android phone to keep up with the latest developments with the revolution in Egypt. This week, I've found myself constantly checking the news on my Android phone to keep up with the latest developments here in Madison.
You know you live in the most lefty-radical part of Madison when you get a Super Bowl invitation that says "Come commiserate over the fallacy of community that is NFL Sports." It's worth a chuckle but I'm hardly miserable. I'm a Packer fan and I plan on cheering them on in tomorrow's Super Bowl.
It's easy to have the best intentions about keeping a blog updated. I was doing a pretty good job at it for a while (i.e. December). But then the new year hit like a whirlwind, and it was all that I could do to take a breath and get enough bearings about me to even figure out where I was.
New Year's Day combined with a little bit of extra pocket cash and the Internet can be a dangerous thing.

Soundtrack in my head: Cloud Cult, "You Were Born"
A baby boy was born right about the time that I finished the last blog post--about twenty minutes to midnight on Christmas Day. This surprised me because I heard very little in the way of sound coming down the hallway. I didn't actually know until the next morning. I've caught only a little glimpse of him at this point--his parents have rarely left their room, but I have heard his crying down the hall from time to time. He has a name, but for the purposes of confidentiality, I will call him Noel in this blog. Don't ask me how I got the name--it just sort of came to me.
Here is a little video which I think serves as an appropriate greeting for him.
