Meet Baby G!

Hello! Here is my little nut. I was so thrilled to see a healthy-looking, active baby at my 20-week scan. Isn't she cute?


We even got to see her yawn.


Now we get to settle on a name! Choosing a baby name is a big deal... but choosing a blog nickname isn't! Let's go with Nux Gallica, because I've been eating a ton of walnuts to get my omega-3 acids. We can call her Galli for short.

I think she likes it. She just did a somersault on my bladder. Aww, how adorable!

  1. That's so cute. Wow. Adorable.

    Personally, I think you should toss Nux Gallica into the permanent name mix. She might not be a huge fan of it growing up, but there's a great story behind it, right? ;) Whatever name you pick for her,I'm sure it'll be a good one.

  4. OOOH! How adorable is THAT! So sweet, and I'm so thrilled for you! I agree with Davin. Throw Nux Gallica into the mix...

    I remember choosing Darcy's name. It took us 4 weeks or something after we found out it was a girl. We knew one thing: the name had to be from something literary. Ah, Mr. Darcy... :)

  5. Oh, DOH! That wasn't Davin! Sorry, Dominique! I'm on my netbook that has a screen the size of a paperback book, and it's late and I've been reading on the computer all day. Yeah.

Ich Liebe Rammstein: Till

UPDATE: After purging his sillies on the side project LINDEMANN and participating in another Rammstein documentary video, Till has begun work on a seventh Rammstein album, estimated to be released in 2017. Till Lindemann
Till Lindemann is the only living human who could kick Chuck Norris's ass, but he doesn't, because they go on emo hunting trips together. The source of this fact, Urban Dictionary, also provides the following essential details: "Till Lindemann is the anthropomorphic personification of pure masculinity who invented the often-lethal dance move: The Till Hammer..." "He challenges the definition of masculine..." "Every German fertility clinic features a cardboard cutout of Till Lindemann choking a shark with one hand, whilst cradling a kitten in his other, looking directly at the stirrups in the insemination room. To this day they have a 100% success rate."

To the chagrin of most of the band, including Till himself, Rammstein is, …

Ich Liebe Rammstein: Richard

Richard Z. Kruspe
Richard Zven Kruspe is Rammstein's founding father, lead guitarist, and natural frontman. He's gregarious, well-spoken in both German and English, a professional showman, and an enthusiastic promoter for the band. In German, his name is pronounced "REE-kard," and in Germanglish, "Reeshard," or "Reesh" for short. Richard is sexy, and he knows it. To many Rammstein fans, he is the cuuuuuuute one. His Facebook page would have you believe it.

Legend has it that Richard has a lovechild with lead singer Till Lindeman. The myth is based in complicated facts and figures, including one unconventional love triangle. Circa 1990, Richard and Till were in a band together (along with future Rammstein rhythm guitarist Paul Landers) with the cheeky name First Arsch. Till, the drummer, was a single father of a little girl at the time, the issue of a short-lived, youthful shotgun wedding--to Richard's current girlfriend. When "Mrs. Lindem…

Safe Products for the Uncrunchy Mama

When I got pregnant, I became ultra-paranoid about toxins. (Haven't you heard? Pregnancy is the best time ever to become a paranoid schizophrenic!) At first I was drawn to everything "crunchy," from home organic gardening to no-poo hair care. I actually loved gardening and no-'poo, but they are not as simple or easy as you might be led to believe. Then I realized that all that crunches is not wholesome (there is just as much consumer-swindling, hazardous and unscientific BS in the "crunchy" sphere as in mainstream marketing toward women) and besides, I was too tired to make all my own soaps and cosmetics. And I didn't want to smell like patchouli and vinegar every day, much as I do love those two things. And I like my hair and skin and nails smooth, totally unlike my nut butter.

Fortunately, I found three great brands that offered everything I wanted: convenience, quality, reasonable price, and safety for me and my unborn child. Their products are luxu…
