Good call
Although I'm sure Albini would prefer you to seek them out on wax cylinder.

Which makes it all the more Albiniesque that I defied him.
Do you know that he's a poker player?
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 20:59, Reply)
Yeah, there was a link a while back (in the newsletter?)
Where he offered to answer any question on some online poker forum.
It was a fairly entertaining read before he started getting annoyed about non-poker players having got wind of it.

Isn't that a celebrity magazine?

(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:07, Reply)
Your mum's a celebrity magazine.

(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:16, Reply)
She totally is
I can't look at her without seeing minor celebrities looking a bit fat or actresses doing their shopping without the full make-up they wear in their day jobs. And just the other day she paid someone I'd never heard of a small fortune to take photos of their living room.

The Michael Mann film.

Michael Mann made a film based on a celebrity magazine?

Is Michael Mann a celebrity?

(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:26, Reply)
Michael Mann is your mum.

(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:28, Reply)
He totally is
He's always making autobiographical films about his life as a celebrity magazine and I'm all like, mum can't you just be a normal mother and grandmother?
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:39, Reply)
Yes.
It is very stylish.

But I'm back
I don't know for how long, though, I can't make any promises.

How are you doing Aber?
Adjusted to life with a baby yet?

There are days and days
Life would be easier if he slept naps and didn't require someone talking to him all the time.

How are you?
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:19, Reply)
Have you tried leaving a dictaphone next to it?
Do you talk to it in Spanish?
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:22, Reply)
I've tried the TV
and it doesn't work for long, he likes seeing someone in front of him.

Yes, I speak Spanish to him, and sing in Spanish too.

Good stuff. I wish I'd been brought up Bilingual.
And failing that I wish I'd been given a basic grasp of English Grammar so that I would find it easier to learn foreign languages.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:25, Reply)
Yes, Mark says the same all the time
Lucas will be brought up trilingual with a bit of luck, and he'll be teaching us Mandarin in no time.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:27, Reply)
What's the third language?

(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:28, Reply)
Mandarin
We're moving to Shanghai in a few months.

Holy shit.
I hope that goes well for you.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:32, Reply)
Me too
I'm looking forward to it, although I'm nervous as well.

Doing ok
My tiny tangle is four months old today and is considerably easier to deal with than her brother ever was.
You'll be fine, it gets easier...
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:25, Reply)
Is that because you gaffa taped her to a stick?

(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:25, Reply)
You have to go with what works

(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:27, Reply)
Four months is a good time
Starting to do more funny things, and asking for solids, I suppose.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:29, Reply)
She is lovely right now
Grinning and giggling all the time and being fascinated and highly amused by her brother.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:41, Reply)
That sounds so sweet
I wish we could meet and introduce the babies to each other, I bet they'd enjoy it.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:45, Reply)
They might
Other babies are often entertaining. And bigger children are utterly mesmerising.
On the other hand, they could be entirely indifferent to one another.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:58, Reply)
He quite enjoys
looking at other babies and has started trying to play with them too. It's really cute.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 22:00, Reply)
*yawn*
And in the adult world....
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 22:04, Reply)
Really?
We're starting to ask ourselves if and when we want another... Lucas never stops, never; and it gets very tiring. We don't know if it's better to give him a sibling as soon as possible, or wait until we can handle him.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:29, Reply)
Well there are six years between my two...
I think there are pros and cons for both small and large age gaps.
You'll be ready when you are ready. It's a bit early to worry about it.
Generally speaking I think siblings are a good idea though.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:36, Reply)
Yeah,
we won't be bringing another baby to the world just yet, it's just that this one is so tiring...

I have 2 siblings and I think it was great growing up with them, even if my sister and I were fighting all the time.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:42, Reply)
If you think he's tiring now
Imagine trying to look after him while pregnant.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:45, Reply)
Yes, I know
That's what puts me off, especially as I had such a bad pregnancy.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:46, Reply)
Just enjoy your current one for now
There is plenty of time to think about siblings. And I think you've got enough to concern yourself with if you are moving across the world.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:49, Reply)
Yes, that is true
Hopefully he'll soon be able to entertain himself a bit and I'll get some time to relax (or cook, clean, pack...)
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:53, Reply)
No, sorry
Your life is over now.
(, Mon 9 Apr 2012, 21:55, Reply)
Hahaha
That made me chuckle. I imagine you're right and I'll have to get used to it.
