A frequently asked question

Sometimes I forget who knows what around here.

The story behind "Sasha 2.0" is pretty simple. When I was pregnant with Miriam, before we knew if the baby was a boy or a girl, Jeremy and I took to calling the baby Sasha. This is because in Russian, Sasha can be a nickname for Alexander or Alexandra - the perfect androgynous term of endearment.

The 2.0, of course, is for the current, updated version.

Also, just because it caused some confusion last time around, Sasha will not be the name of the baby once she's born. It's just being used while the baby is in utero.

Also, my due date is August 3rd. I would put up one of those tickers, but the last thing I want to be reminded of is exactly how many days I have left. But if you need a flickering countdown, go ahead and use this one and just add a day. Yep, Stephenie Meyer's new book, Breaking Dawn, comes out the day before my due date:

Hope that helps!

Did you know 4 August is my birthday? AND it's the birthday of Barak Obama -- my homeboy? AND it's the birthday of Lonnie Anderson -- not my homegirl?

AND (this deserves it's own paragraph, so as to not mix the ecclesiastical with the profane) it's the birthday of the church's 13th president Ezra Taft Benson?

This is all true.
