    The Michaelskis Baby Pool!

    Nope… August. (and I will always listen to Maister. He knew before Christmas but kept it a secret!)

    So here is how this works… you pick a day in August and the closest person wins! What you win… I will buy you a beer at Stanfest 09! Not even Maister knows what day that the little skier will be born.

    My guess is August 4.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Congrats M'Skis

    So will you be selling the Loft Condo and moving to the 'burbs now that you've purchased an SUV?

    My guess is August 14?

    Congrats Mike and Mrs. Mskis!

    I was going to go for the 7th because we know great folks are born on that date.

    But, this being 2008, I have to go with 08/08/08, at 8:08 am, 8#-8 oz, 20.8 inches.

    Yes we will be selling the condo, but we have 2 houses that we will be looking at this weekend, both in Heritage Hill. So work and Downtown will still be walking distance.

    Congrats man.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    I'm going with August 6th. No particular reason, except I have a childhood friend who was born on that date.

    Many congratulations from out west!

    My vote is for August 25, 12:01am.

    I just wrote this a couple of hours ago, but I can't edit. I thought we had about 6 hours to edit?

    I wanted to be a bit more precise in my time guess. Here's my UPDATED baby pool entry:

    August 25th, between 12 noon and 2 pm.

    Announcing the news this early reminds me of a joke.

    Woman gets on a crowded bus. A guy gets up to offer his seat. She's very grateful, looks to be exhausted.

    He comments.

    She replies, "I'm pregnant."

    He checks a contour, asks, "how far along are you?"

    "About a hour."
