Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: Any Day Now Edition

Normally my “Stuff to Read” post goes up on Fridays, but in the event I get called into action tomorrow I wanted to make sure I got this up early.   Soon I’ll be a dad. And soon my kid will be yelling at me “you’re ruining my life!” *slams door* I’m going to laugh… Read more
