RubenX(TM) is alive and well... with some stories to tell....

Oh well, where I begin.

Outsourcing @ work is near. Outsourcing Survival plans have been put in effect, taking most of my fora-wora time, priorities you know. It all should go well, financially... lots of changes but doable.

Fiance change jobs and have more time to spend together... meaning less foo and more....

Which leads me to the big news: We are pregnant!
Nine weeks in...

Ergo I wanna hurry up previous plans of asking father for hand in marriage, get ring, propose, get married, etc... the whole chibang.

...Also, during recent storm force winds, big gigantic tree fell down from neighbor yard into Rube's yard, taking down power lines. HUGE freaking tree, as big as the house. We are OK tho, and no damage to the structure. Just no power/internet/phone for a few days.... a bored Rube' with bored Rube(TM) kids, bored pregnant girlfriend with even more bored Rube(TM) fetus inside... lots of boredom. I'm glad power is back.

I'm still smoke free and enjoying the savings, OMG I was wasting a lot of money. Oh and evil bankers are garnishing 16% effing percent of my wages.... apparently they got tired of mah claiming to be broke and not paying the student loans... bastards!

Other than that, Rube is bored.

Congrats on the new Rube baby! You'll wish you were bored while you plan the wedding and prepare for the new baby. Get your naps while you still can, Ruben.

Place your bets on the total number of children, termination date, and number of Foo threads generated by Ruben's Marriage II(TM).

If it's a boy, name him Rube Paul. If it's a girl, Rube Tuesday.

Well I knew there'd be a story or 2, congrats! Better let us know if it was the Cafe Bustello that lead to another Rube(TM) kids or a few more of us are going to be in for more surprises in about a month.

Haha, whenever someone tells me they are pregnant, the first thing I think is not usually "oh, they had sex," but "ewwwww, they actually had sex with [partner]?????" I am sure someone thought the same thing about my wife/me both times we got the preggers, too, though, so fair is fair....

Me too. I thought I was just weird. Now I'm happy to know that I'm still weird - but with company.

When someone tells me they're having a boy, I like to say "Ohhh...that means you have a penis inside of you right now!!!"

The creep factor coupled with their facial expressions is priceless.

Ah, yes, I even said that to my own wife a few times (both kids are boys). I would not recommend it, by the way.

I also told her that now my friends know....never mind.
