Have you seen Finding Nemo? Yeah, the fish movie. There is a scene where two birds are sitting in the water, and some bubbles come up near one of the birds. The other bird looks at bubble bird in disgust and says "Nice," and flies away. Well my cool little sis who speaks French and Arabic watched our DVD last summer in the Au Francais and informs me in that scene the french translation has the sarky bird saying "charment" or charming. That word has been pattering through my head all afternoon, snooty french accent and in the tone of voice the bird utters it no less. It fits.

I am in labor, not yet the get me to the hospital I'm gonna pop deal, but they (contractions) have been coming strong and regular since around 12:30-1:00ish. I had been feeling merely crampy till I read Nytro's latest post about her dental woes. The teeth didn't get me, though I certainly can sympathise. No, it was the fart jokes. Sadly I have no defence against them. Nope, on the other hand I am such a sucker, and my low brow sense of humor was SOOOOO tickled by the categorising of her husbands various flatulence's that I started laboring for real and haven't stopped. It's a good thing that I don't keep baby books for my kids. I can see the entry now.... "Pearl, your entry into this world was heralded by a combination of yer mama busting a gut over a fart-joke and a little bit 'o Dr.J's "prostoglandin contraband."

Whoop-yeah! I am one high-tone broad.
