Monkey Baby a’splosion!

Hey folks, .alphamonkey. here!  As you may or may not know, the Mrs. and myself have been eagerly awaiting the birth of our first children and, as of this writing, birth systems are GO for twin girl monkey a’splosion.  As you might expect (or at least I hope you would), I’ll be taking a short break from Transbuddha while Casa del Monkey celebrates the arrival of our new family members, as well as adjusting to parental life.  Don’t worry, I’m not leaving you, my dear internet pals. 

In the interim, I’ve asked the fine folk at YesButNoButYes and Andy Cochrane from the AV Club (who has already started a’posting) to guest edit/post during my absence.  I suspect you’ll also see some familiar names from Transbuddha’s past stepping up and keeping things rolling as well. 

I’m keeping track of the various strangeness and wonderfulness of new parenthood, so you can always check out my personal site detailing the impeding freakout of dad-hood that is known (coincidentally enough) as dadsbigplan

    All the best to you and the Mrs. on the arrival of two new simians. Apparently the first 35 years are the worst.

    Like me? smile

    I couldn’t count the number of times my parents reminded me that I wouldn’t be around but for the .01% chance of failure on the back of the condom box.

    Congrats on the tiny people you’ve produced AM. Train them well, and their hard work at the mines will pay your way through to retirement/forming of family militia.

    That or train them to run TB, so I can complain to them when I’m 70. “Back when I was your age, we didn’t have holographic porn” is something I cannot wait to say.

    postscrypt: dont forget to read them chuck palahniuk books for bedtime stories.

    We don’t want them to turn into reactionary hipster malcontents raging against the machine. 

    I’m going with Haruki Marukami and James Ellroy.
