After much delay, it is time to announce the reason for our recent disappearance from Duke City Fix and the face of the earth: The arrival of the Grumbeckle!
The Grumbeckle was born August 31st. She weighed in at 37 pounds and measured 3 feet tall. She arrived with an iPod in one hand and a wireless mouse in the other. She has been gaining weight like crazy on a special all-liquid diet that she learned about on the tubes.
So far, she has been doing all the normal infant things – crying, pooping, and writing PHP code for a new Web
2.0 project she thought up while in the womb. She has been pulling all-nighters almost every night to check things off her tasklist. Unfortunately, however, her neck is essentially useless so far, so her progress has been slow. She is obviously on the fast track to being a CEO somewhere, as she has a driven personality... she insists on getting what she wants and is very vocal when she doesn't get it.
Grumblecake has fully recovered, and is even back at work (which is both wonderful and heartbreaking).Eckleburg hasn't been quite able to take of all his pregnancy weight, but is working on it.
