I think under these circumstances, noclip would be more appropriate.

Holy whatsits, gomichild!! I knew you had one in the oven, but I didn't know about all this! Damn, I gotta start reading projects a little more often!

So I guess this means I won't see you at my gig with Mike Watt and Jim O'Rourke tonight...

I'd like to stress, for those not sufficiently hep, that Japan is not quite as big on the epidurals as the Western World is.

She's flying without a net, is my point, which pretty much makes her Wonder Woman in my book.

You go, lady. He'll be as beautiful as you are, I just know it.

Is this something you'd have to have had sex to understand?

I had my wife convinced for about five seconds yesterday that gomichild's projects was actually a total conversion mod of the original Quake.

gomi, I have cramps. I figure this is some kind of womb seismic tranference. As if I weren't impressed before -- the gal controls the world's womb magma!!

Erupt a peoplespolsion, O mighty mount gomi, and give her lotsa kisses from her SoCal auntie. As soon as she can say "margarita," send her on over! ;)

This is where the fun *REALLY* starts. Good luck with your projects, gomichild & Mr. gomichild. I wish I could be there to celebrate with you, but I'll have to settle for be buying a bottle of sparkling wine on my way home from work, and toasting you from here.

Woo-hoo! Go gomi! Best of luck with the gomisprout!

Just kidding with the pronouns. (How did I mis the gender boat?)

Ah, she's being induced - downside (though I have nothing to compare to, so I don't know if it's actually true) is that some say the contraction pains get sharper, upside is that things move along much faster, wehey! best of luck parents-to-be!

That's all I can expect in January is "ow"??? SWEET!

Congratulations gomi! Beautiful boy!

That said, seeing my wife's mucus plug was quite enough for me, thanks, I'd prefer not to relive the experience without the reward.

Congratulations Gomi! You did good!

That baby looks awfully Japanese. Are you sure it's yours?
posted by Lafe at 6:08 AM on May 15, 2008


So after all that, gomi....


...are you still preggers?




I'm still going on the theory that you've always been pregnant, and always will be!


Congrats! He's teh kyoot!

Gomi knows I love her. I dunno if this is really the best post ever, though.

In any event, congrats to Gomi, Yoshi, and his blobness.

But seriously... congratulations!

Congrats, lovely kid and all that, got one myself... but when did pictures of someone's baby become the 'best of the web'?
