For those of you who had "a boy and a girl" in the Syntax of Things Guess the Gender of the Twins pool, you can collect your winnings. We found out this morning. I can now put my "sex change for dad" fund that I had started in case they were both girls toward the diapers-for-two fund.
By the way, I've been more slammed than I'm normally slammed the last few weeks, meaning all of those other claims of being slammed were mere warm-ups to the actual slammedness that I'm experiencing right now. I hope to be less slammed come this weekend and assuming that I don't get trampled by a runaway pony or slammed by a greased pig at the North Carolina State Fair, then I'll be back to a somewhat more regular posting schedule, including, finally, an update on the books that I've actually had time to read the last few months in between moments of being slammed.
We here at the Syntax of Things home office are happy, if not a little shocked and overwhelmed, to announce that as of March 22nd or thereabouts we will be adding two (yes two!) new members to our staff. We've known for weeks about the addition but we found out this morning that we need to plan on two. While what's left of my hair is now somewhere in a doctor's office in north Raleigh and Elaine's jaw is probably on the floor beside it, we both are happy that our staff will now almost double in size.
Excuse me while I go knock out a wall for the new "office."
