Craps

Corky Jr, or Craps as I now refer to him by, will be here no later than 7/11/07. What a great birthday for Craps. It was such a relief when the doctor told us to pick a day to induce. No more pulling my hair out and asking Allyson every 5 seconds if she's in labor yet. She could still go into labor on her own before the 11th and if she does that would be a nice little treat.

Tonight is my last night of work for two weeks which totally kicks ass! This basically means that I have 6 days to get completely ready for the arrival of Craps. We do have mostly everything done, but I wouldn't mind giving the kitchen and the toilet bowl one more good scrubbing. I'm pretty happy about the way things have gone.

We are very, very excited folks, and I appreciate everyone's continued well wishes and enthusiasm towards Craps.

Stay Tuned!!!

We are tuned. I check your blog a couple of times a day to see if there is word. July 11th is a fine day. On this day, we find out whether to buy blue things or pink things for the impending birth of our second grandchild.

How cool would 7/7/7 be?

Such a good husband, kitchen and once more around the bowl!

7-11 ... humm, a 'lil Slurpee?

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Good luck.

Birthday's on the 11th rock, btw. I am an 11th baby and I am the coolest person on the planet. Seriously, I am.

The Lone Beader said...

Corky, that is NOT a very nice thing to call your baby... LOL.

karma lennon said...

Yay! So excited for you guys! :)

Biddie said...

Well, I dunno, I like it better than Cletus! :0)

Metal Mark said...

Does he start out at the rank of Ensign or does he get to be a LT. right away since he is family?

Nonny said...

I really can't get behind the name "Craps". Personally I've been calling him "Spawn of Corky".

7/7/07 would be cool. Then you should just name him "Seven". If it's good enough for George Costanza it's good enough for you.

Tod said...

I find myself over here checking for news a couple of times a day too. And then I read 7/11 and thought, what! NOVEMBER!

And then I realised I'm British...

erika said...

so soon so soon...can't wait.
see you guys soon.
:)

Blancodeviosa said...

unless he decides to come say on the 8th?

Alicia said...

7/11!!!
Great day for a baby!
;)
Good luck, Papa!

Feels Like Home said...

It is so exciting to be so close!!
I'll be thinking good thoughts for you guys! Good luck!

Jenny! said...

Fun stuff! My thoughts are with you and wifey that craps makes a grand entrance without making your wife actually crap!

Jay said...

7/11 is a perfect day!

You're gonna REALLY be calling him "craps" pretty soon. haha

And by all means give that toilet bowl one more scrubbing. AT LEAST one more. Maybe two.

Pink said...

COOOOMMMINGGG OOOOOOOOUUUUUUUTTTT!!!!


(all in the spirit of Craps, don't ya know?)

captain corky said...

MJD: Very exciting times for us all!

Nancy: I love me a good coke slurpee! Allyson thought that was really cute btw.

Cherry Ride: Don't you mean second coolest?

Beader: Pretty soon I'll reveal his real name.

Karma: Thanks!!!

captain corky said...

Biddie: Yeah, Cletus was kind of a rough. ;)

Metal Mark: Definitely ensign, but I'm going to be a little easier on him then Picard was on Wesley.

Nonny: I like Spawn of Corky a lot!
Could be a good name for his blog.

Tod: LOL! I think Allyson would drive a steak through my heart if she had to wait until November.

Erika: Can't wait!!!

captain corky said...

Blancodeviosa: He could always come on his due date of the 10th. Now that would be a real mind fuck. ;)

Alicia: Thanks! I like the new picture a lot.

Feels like Home: Thank you very much. It is so exciting!

Jenny: Thanks! I think I may crap myself before all is said and done. ;)

Jay: I'm so happy I might even give it three, but let me tell you what I'm really looking forward to is changing diapers. Fun!

Pink: Yep! New Shooter.

Enemy of the Republic said...

I never could stand Wesley. Picard was right.

Enjoy the ride, Corky. It's great stuff! Mine came 7 weeks early.

Sunshine said...

Hope everything goes very smoothly!!! Can't wait to see pictures of the little sucker.

HoosierGirl5 said...

I am so excited! I will be watching for a birth announcement. Resist the urge to blog when she goes into labor and/or take your laptop to the hospital. Buy lots of batteries NOW.
Tell Allyson to get a pedicure. Her toes will be right out there in the open very soon.

just me said...

You give me faith in the world. A dad who is truly excited about having his son, can't wait to have his son, and has already invested in his future. DC is the way to go.

wonderfully uplifting blog, you have here, sir.

Luck be a lady

I am so bitter you selfishly screwed your child out of opportunity that would have occurred naturally without the interference of modern medicine. This child was DESTINED to be born on the 13th and now…..not so much. That being said the fact the kid is going to hit his first YO by being born is fantastic (Yo: Wins if the shooter rolls 11). But as a betting man I really have to let everything ride on the hard six…….

Chucky said...

WoW dude. Good luck sir!

Canadian flake said...

wooooohoooooo a man that loves Star Trek AND cleans tiolets?? Wow I think I am in love..lol. But I have been hit with inspiration...if Corky Jr is born on 07/09 y'all could name him seven of nine..ya know like from ST:Voyager...lmao . I think this is brilliant...hee hee hee. I look forward to hearing all the details of your new arrival.

Dan said...

Holy craps ... er ... crap, you must be excited! Can't wait to see the blogging you'll be doing in a week (though I'll be on vacation until the end of July).

The Artist formerly Known as Purpleworms (!) said...

I like Spawn of Corky too! (O f course I have Alien(s) action figures all over my desk, so what do I know? I'm guessing you are having aboy and will name him Chekov!

Heart Of Darkness said...

YEY! The baby's acumen'... :)

So, the sex thing didn't work, huh?

eric313 said...

Babay needs a new pair of shoes!

crapped out

there's always tax returns...

Cazzie!!! said...

Staying tuned I certainly am. When I was having my 1st baby, we played canasta together..I won :)

jAMiE said...

Good luck with the imprending arrival Corky!

I'm new here...will be back to take a better look.

furiousBall said...

I hope your wife has a big healthy Craps

RockDog said...

7/11 is the night of the All Star game...since you aren't a big baseball fan I know that this means nothing to you. However, I will be unable to attend the birthing as expected. Please either reschedule or accept my well wishes in advance.

Warmest Regards,

Aunt Jackie said...

I would like to say that I am officially going to Bet on "Craps" for July 9th.

That is my official bet.

:)

Come on BIG 9!

Alicia said...

C/Mon 7/7/7
That'd be an AWESOME day to have a baby!!!

Jenny! said...

Corky you are going to be up to your ears in crap for the next two-three years! Enjoy your last week of crap free life!

Gina said...

Ok, will it be Craps Cletus or Cletus Craps? Either way, you've got a nice alliteration thing going.

Crossing my fingers for the baby to come soon!

abbagirl74 said...

Are we taking bets here? I am going to bet on lucky number 13. Put me down for the 13th Corky!!!!

Pink said...

Well I guess the toilet is clean by now....

fingers and toes crossed. Had my legs crossed but I fell down the stairs at the tube station so just had to go with fingers and toes for now.

So will his nick name be Crappy? I can't wait till he comes. Enjoy these last few days alone with your wife!

When my daughter was born, I took a video of her every Tuesday, for 2 years. It's been great to look back on. She loves all the video I took of her over the years.

Princess Pointful said...

Excitement!
The anticipation must be driving you a little crazy...

kat said...

I haven't been able to check your blog for a while and of course as soon as I was able to read I came here. I have been reading in order and I THINK I saw baby pictures but I'm not sure. So on to your next post - I hope I saw baby pictures up there!
