Who are these losers who think 55 to 60 degrees equals a cold front, and they break out their leather jackets? I swear this happens every single September, and its ridiculous. If the high was 55 to 60, and the low was in the high 40s or low 50s, then I could halfway understand someone taking refuge in the leather. But in September the temps climb quickly, and by the time its 9am, it is up to the mid 70s. Then by the time these jackasses leave work, they have to wrap their warm leather jackets around their waist, because the temps have magically ascended to late summer heights. The litmus test is this: If you can see your breath and condensation on the windowns, the MAYBE you break out the leather. If not, get a blazer or rub icy hot on your arms or something. Me myself personally? I dont wear leather at all. Its hot, it smells like pretzels, and I feel like I should be wearing a leather Kangol with the a leather jacket, and that's not my style.

I made a huge mistake by trying to predict which day this week I would learn the sex. I got all kinds of people asking me if I found out yet, what's the hold up, why am I holding out, and I can't even blame them(although I will try). I put my business way out there, and folks want to know. Although in my defense, if I was reader of this blog, and I checked to see whether something had been written about the baby's gender, and I saw nothing, I would assume that the author of the blog had yet to find out..but that's just me.

I would also like to take this time to give out a shoutout to Washington Mutual, who in my mind, is a threat to run off with my money at any minute. I am working feverishly with my job to get my direct deposits redirected to other accounts, and my HR department is working way too slow in making that happen. I live in fear that one day I'll check my account, and instead of seeing numbers and my balance, I'll see a big middle finger with a caption under it reading, "Gotcha bitch!!". So thank you WAMU, for making me paranoid. I look forward to seeing you all in the Chik-fil-A drive thru.

which is what I did. That and I'm a man, so while I am happy for you, I'm not waiting breathlessly to find out the sex.

sixfive,
i respect you my man. and if you were breathlessly waiting for my sex announcement, then we'd have a problem way bigger than Houston.

You just stopped me short of opening up a WAMU free checking account.

I figured when you found out what you are having and when/if you wanted to announce what the sex of the baby is then you will.

i don't know which is worse the summer to fall with all the wearing of the leather and people anxious to break out the boots or the winter to spring with people ready to bare skin and toes.
