To make it cool to be German again.

Cal will be holding down the fort while Angus, Prudence, Petey the Penguin and I are at Yankee Stadium.   Knowing the Pope’s fondness for orange tabbies, it’s appropriate that he will be the one in the neighborhood when the Pope stops by later this morning. 

Pictures to follow.

Dwyeropolis digest: 

We picked up our tickets to the Papal Mass in Yankee Stadium and have been busy trying to discourage Pru from putting them in her mouth. 

We made a very tasty classic Texan dinner:  chicken fried steak and Dr Pepper.

We did the laundry (and temporarily lost Cal in the process).

We cleaned the oven; it passed Cal’s inspection.

We saw the kneelerthat will be used when the Holy Father (Be-ne-dict X-V-I/Be-ne-dict, he’s our guy!) visits our neighborhood.

Selected to show the new haircut promised here.

Pru wants to thank the Texas and New York Easter Bunnies for her Easter basket. Unfortunately for her, the recommended age for chocolate introduction is after 12 months. It’s OK, though, because Mom and Dad have her back.

More pictures from this morning after the break and at the Flikr site.

As my long-suffering parents can attest, I was a huge McLaughlin Group fan as a kid.  Huge.  On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 indicating a level of enthusiasm equal to what the average Hillary Clinton voter has for her candidacy and 10 indicating full-blown fainting Bobby Soxer swooning, I was a 9.  We now know this is a hereditary trait because Prudence spent all afternoon yesterday entranced by the undeniable genius of this cartoon.

I told you it was awesome.  Why did you doubt?

If I were in Rome, I wouldn’t be checking out little baby blogs*.   Pru, however, has a different message:

… so that means:  BLOG PARTY!!

Prior to Pru’s being born and our getting married, much of any given day could be spent composing blog posts in my head.  I could roll around a phrase until it was polished enough for public consumption.  I was able to really work through an assertion and get a final product that I was fairly confident would stand the critical eye of the hoards of people who frequented AGoCh.  I could actually sit down and read Latin.  It was a beautiful time for prose, really. 

After Pru, however, my thoughts have been composed of lists of things I do/don’t want Pru to do.  Samples from the last few days:

A List of Professions We Don’t Want Pru to Consider When She Grows Up:

  1. Thief
  2. Porn star
  3. Welfare Queen
  4. Contract killer
  5. Lawyer

While watching coverage of the Iowa caucuses:

Guy running a caucus:  “Alright everybody, now we’re going to break up into our preference groups”
Angus (using his Zapp Brannigan voice):  “…our sexual preference groups?”
Sarah:  “I thought he said breakfast groups.”
Angus:  “… our sexual breakfast groups?”

Some people (notably people who don’t have infants at home themselves) have politely requested more posting.  We admit posting has been light, chiefly because a certain denizen of Dwyeropolis hasn’t been doing much of this lately:

And of course, when the baby doesn’t sleep (or, more to the point, doesn’t sleep unless she’s being gently cradled in the arms of one of her parents as she paces quietly about a dimly lit living room) we don’t sleep.  And when we don’t sleep, taking cute pictures of the baby and posting them online with witty anecdotes takes a back burner to not going on shooting rampages.
