Going to Foo Camp (Hopefully)

Krista and I could have a baby girl at any moment. If she comes soon or late enough, I can go to Foo Camp. If she decides to come late Friday or Saturday, I obviously can't. At first I accepted the fact that I wouldn't be able to go, but Krista insists I can't miss Foo Camp if at all possible. Krista pointed out that Cam spoke at TSSS when his wife was 40 weeks pregnant. Whereas Cam was 3 time zones away, Sebastapol is only about 50 miles from our apartment. Krista's mom can hold down the fort for an hour. Does Krista rock or what? If I do make it (cross my fingers, knock on wood, rub Krista's belly), I'm looking forward to brainstorming what WebWork and even Java as a whole can learn from Ruby on Rails. Pat Lightbody, Pat Niemeyer and I have gone back and forth on some pretty sweet ideas the past couple weeks, and Lightbody even has some working code. In any case, thanks, O'Reilly, for the invite!

All my friends gave me this advice: sleep as much as you can before the baby comes. So I give you this advice as well... - my baby girl is expected within the next 8 days as well so... don't go there but sleep!

Sleep is for the weak. In my experience, it's not much work for Daddy on baby #1. Baby #2 is a whole different story. My advice would be stay home - Foo camp sounds cool and all, but rushing home is nothing like being there when it happens.

Dammit, Raible... ;)

We go to the doctor in the morning. We'll see.

Krista (and Cam's wife) are way better women than I am. That's all I have to say. :D
