Sigh. Almost 8pm and the hospital still hasn’t called us for the induction that was scheduled at 4am this morning.

Nikki scheduled for induction at 4am today but Nicole called at 3am and they have no beds available at the moment. They’ll call us when we can go down there, so we’re just on standby today waiting for the call.

Nicole’s scheduled for induction on Thur the 12th @ 4a but the hospital is quite backed up so most likely they won’t have a bed for her, and available staff, until Thursday evening. Then there’s the 15+ hours of labor, so high probability our 3rd will be arriving on Friday the 13th. I suggested a name change to “Jason” if it was a boy but Nicole didn’t go for it, hehe. Little Jason born on Friday the 13th just before Halloween, that’d be hilarious.

Physically Nicole’s body is not as far along as she thought it was, which was a big disappointment. Doctor felt bad delivering the news but there’s nothing anybody can do. Nikki really thought she was closer to labor but I guess her body and this baby were planning on the long haul. It just means that when they do induce, it’ll be a longer/harder road until delivery vs if her body was already half way there on its own. Oh well, it sucks but in the end we should end up with a healthy baby boy or girl.

It’s still going to be a surprise. Nicole has this idea that when the baby is born, I’ll look down and see the gender and then I’ll whisper into her ear the name of the baby. Kind of cool.

I actually don’t have a direct problem with rap music, it’s just a different style of music. But some of it has some really bad lyrics, complete overuse of profane language and promotion of racism and hurting others and completely disrespecting females. Talking about them like they’re nothing but an object. It’s very disturbing when I’m trying to pump has an some guy next to me is blasting this rap with horrible lyrics. Again it’s not rap, it’s the lyrics. Freedom of speech and artistic creativity and all that I suppose but I’d love to do a social experiment where songs with lyrics like that are banned for 30 years, see what kind of effect it has on the new generation of children. It’d be interesting to see how such songs affect and direct culture or society.

I saw some of the Facebook pages of some of the Las Vegas victims. Some were moms of young children, nieces, etc. It’s just so… Heart wrenching. I can’t wrap my head around it, makes me sad to the core. These were just normal people attending an outdoor country music festival. Mom’s expecting to go home to their children afterwards, husband’s expecting to meet up with their wife that night for a late dinner. Sigh. And it’s so troubling that he had no apparent motives, he wasn’t religious or political or anything.

I like how CreditOneBank.com complains about an Ad-Blocker. What kind of legitimate bank/credit-card-company would have advertisements on their site. Sketchy ones.

Father-Son bonding experience (maybe) this morning as we stood in front of target for 2+ hours waiting on a couple of SNES classics. We got ’em 🙂

Anybody know of a tactical flashlight that randomizes the strobe frequency and intensity?

Watched Episodes 1 and 2 of “The Orville” which is Fox’s new SciFi. It’s a star trek esque series by Seth Macfarlane, and I’m annoyed that it’s actually pretty good. Annoyed because it most likely means Fox will cancel it after one season, which they tend to do to any good SciFi they come up with. But it’s good. It’s “Star Trek” but a little less up tight and serious, while still being fairly accurate/not-entirely-crazy.
