Guido said I should update my blog. I'm such a slacker.

I saw this on the AP wire yesterday with a story on how more and more mothers-to-be are bringing music with them to the delivery room via iPods and stuff. THIS is their suggested list of songs to have playing in the background while delivering your little one. While some seem appropriate, others are just puzzling.
I think these "experts" are either men, or bitter, bitter women. I mean, c'mon .... "The First Cut Is The Deepest"????

That's completely bizarre. Maybe the weird mix of songs is to compel that kid to get out of there, so he can turn it off!

I made a CD for my labor. Didn't listen to a second of it. Lance was too busy surfing the three hospital tv channels, and ultimately Nicky was born in "General Hospital."
