Play Along, It's Worth It

Beth and Chris: Guess what?
Internet: What?
Beth and Chris: No, guess.
Internet: Ok. You’re both following your childhood dreams and abandoning your seemingly normal life to join the circus. We’ve always thought you were “circus people.”
Beth and Chris: Um…no. Try again. It’s a secret.
Internet: You’re not actually two people. All this time you’ve been stringing us along you’re really one talented yet highly disturbed person. Right?
Beth and Chris: Come on. Get real. I’m, uh, we’re two real people. Give it another shot.
Internet: This seems to be a one-sided relationship. Its all give, no get from us.
Beth and Chris: Hey, play along or we are taking our blogs and going home. We’re getting something. Now, what could it be?
Internet: Fine. A puppy?
Beth and Chris: Yes! One of those little ones you can carry around in your purse!
Internet: Really?
Beth and Chris: Are you on crack? No.
Internet: Fine.
Beth and Chris: Try again.
Internet: A new car?
Beth and Chris: Yes!
Internet: That was totally not worth playing this stupid game.
Beth and Chris: Well, we are getting a new car, but that’s not what we want you to guess.
Internet: This is getting old.
Beth and Chris: Come on.
Internet: A new house?
Beth and Chris: No.
Internet: Rickets?
Beth and Chris: Ha-ha. No.
Internet: Annoying?
Beth and Chris: Fine, we’ll give you another clue. It’s something we’re getting in August.
Internet: Why should we care now, then? Post about it in August!
Beth and Chris: It involves new clothes.
Internet: Someone gave you a cruise?
Beth and Chris: No. It involves new furniture.
Internet: A new house?
Beth and Chris: No, you guessed that already. It involves screaming.
Internet: Um, unless someone’s passing a kidney stone at a costume party, I don’t think I get it. I give up.
Beth and Chris: Fine, one more clue, but this really gives it away...

Internet: You’re on X!!
Beth and Chris: Of course not! Why would we be doing drugs when we’re knocked up?

In case you're new around these parts, Beth, future mommy, can be found here.

*jumping around like an idiot*
Ok, I already said that! OMG!
Congrats! OH I am sooo excited! Oh I cannot wait!
Ok, breathe.......
Nice! Great job Chris!
Ok, now, you do know that you will be responsible for all the weight gain, the "can't fit into any clothes" the body aches and what not right? I hope she doesn't have good aim when it comes to throwing things at you!
Oh my Lord, I am sooo damned excited!
Now, I am going to need an address, no not email. See, we'll have to have a virtual baby shower, God know's I'll never get to your house personally, so we will have to have things delivered.....
CONGRATS! You two deserve it!
Oh my, a baby cactus or fish....
*sniff...tears in eyes*

Thank goodness! I got it from the "its a secret line." I am so happy for you both. If it is an early August baby it will be a Leo like me, which is definately a good sign to be born under.

I am so happy for the two of you. You definately deserve it after having to write a post about #3ing in a cup!

Posted by: goodsnake at January 18, 2005 09:29 AM


Way to go, Chris! (I mean...we all know you had the hard part.)

OMG...I totally didn't mean for that to be a double entendre. Oh well.

Congrats to both of you!!! You have no idea what joy that Little Cactus is going to bring to you.

Tell Beth to milk this pregnancy thing for all it's worth!

Posted by: Joe at January 18, 2005 09:30 AM

Stupid East Coast hearing all about it before I can get a word in edgewise!

See? All that screwin' DID pay off in the long run! And? Y'all had fun doing it (and don't tell me you didn't, because you'd be lying.)

Congratulations to you both!

Posted by: lucky at January 18, 2005 01:48 PM



I knew you guys were trying and I was getting sad thinking about that it ha been a little while, and hoping you weren't going to fall into the "trying forever" category. Wow. A little cactus to run around. Remeber, if it's a girl, I*R*M*A is a great name. Serisouly! (well, without the stars. Unless you're going for a whole MASH thing) Well it's a good name especially in you move to Europe. Then people don't think it's weird anymore.

Anyway, congratulations the upcoming addition to the cactus family. I'm assuming the wee one will have a blog of his/her own as well? It's only natural, is it not?

Posted by: Tjej at January 18, 2005 02:10 PM

DUDE! A baby Cactus - I am so excited for you! I am leaving happy hooray messages for you BOTH - congratulations!

Now the FUN begins!

Wow! congradulations! I got here late and had to skim past hundreds of pages of comments.

Good for you. Bad foryour sex life ;)

Actually that's not true - you can have sex all the way until the water breaks. After that - you're just bopping the kid on the head. Not nice. She doesn't need that kind of scarring.

YEAH!!! So happy.

Posted by: Autumn at January 18, 2005 05:04 PM


Good for you guys, this is seriously awesome news. :)

I hope the husband and I can have that same feeling one day. We just gotta work a little harder... and I get to do drugs to get Preggy! LOL
*Fertility Drugs that is*
I'm off to congratulate your Wifey!

How cool is dat!


Posted by: La Bella at January 18, 2005 09:47 PM

That's such great & exciting news!!! Congratulations to you & Beth! I don't "know" either of you, but I know you will make wonderful & just all around cool parents!

Posted by: naomi at January 18, 2005 09:59 PM

oh yay oh yay!

Now here's my advice, since My Kid was born in August: keep the AC really, really, REALLY low (Daddy, you may want to stock up on long johns and wool socks) and whenever you have to go somewhere, go out and start the car and run the AC to cool it off for her. She will soooo appreciate it. Well, maybe not NOW, while she's pregnant. But later, when she retells the story she'll make you out to be a saint.

Congratulations. I know how excited you both must be. May it be wonderful for you.

Posted by: kalisah at January 18, 2005 10:16 PM
