Wake N’ Blog: I’m Back, Baby!

Wake N’ Blog is the Sportress of Blogitude’s morning link dump. Send tips, link submissions, etc. to weedagainstspeed@gmail.com.

• Usually, this space is reserved to link to some odd story about someone shoving something up their butt or the exploits of drunken naked people or some variation of the “bizarre news” angle, but today, I have chosen to use this first bullet point of Wake N’ Blog to let my readers know that I have taken the last four weekdays off (and Memorial Day) from the Sportress for just about the most awesome reason imaginable: on Thursday, my wife gave birth to our little baby girl. Now, I will try to avoid the pitfalls which usually go hand in hand when fathers go on and on and on when a new baby is brought into this world, but I will say this: she is an absolute treasure and I can’t even remember what my life was like before she was here. With that said, expect the amount of content around these here parts to be a little touch and go over the next few days as we adjust to the new little angel in our home. Oops. I’m already doing what I said I would not do. Apologies. Alrighty then, back to the Toy Department. And of course, thank you for dropping by.
