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.

35 Great Things About Turning 35

The prime of life starts at 35! It's the best-kept secret from younger people, but your 35th birthday is a major cause for celebration. For mine, I have made my own listicle of 35 reasons why experts agree that 35 is the best age to be:
You get to say, "I'm 35." The number 35 carries so much more gravitas than 30, but you're only a few years older. At 34, I've started fudging my age--by adding a year. People automatically take me seriously, and if they don't, at least they tell me I look young for my age. (Eye roll, hair toss, "whatever.")  35-year-olds DGAF. Inner chill reaches new heights at 35. Despite its #2 status on this list, it's the #1 response I hear about what's best about hitting 35. My gorgeous friend Nerlie was beautiful and resilient and wise beyond her years in high school, but now, at age 35, she gets to fully enjoy being herself on her own terms. She writes,  "I've survived so much that I don't waste time o…

A Bad Romance Starring Till Lindemann, Sophia Thomalla, Gavin Rossdale, Simone Thomalla, Sven Martinek, Andy LaPlegua, and Leila Lowfire

November 2018 Update: Sophia is settled in with Gavin now, I guess, and Till is spending time with 36-year-old (hell yeah, thank you, sir) Ukrainian singer Svetlana Loboda. He is either her latest babydaddy or doing her the favor of bearding as such (not that he's great with beards, but we don't mind) to help her get distance from her crazy ex who cuts his wrists over her. The juice continues...

To misquote Gaga, "I don't speak German, but I can look at foreign tabloids and guess what's going on if you like."


I guess it would be more professional and ladylike for me to be above this sordid celebrity gossip, but I'm not. I'm so not.


So let's see if I've got this straight. From what I gather...


Metalgod Till Lindemann, 54, and model Sophia Thomalla, 27 (upper left) recently exited a five-year, on-off, opennish relationship, which began when Sophia's actress mother Simone (upper right, in the center) and Simone's then-lover (between her m…

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…
