Alex and I are overjoyed to announce the arrival of Sylvia Dawn Kuper Rudnick, born at home July 24th at 5:40pm, one week after her due date. Labor was lengthy, but we're all doing well, and Sylvia is big, strong and healthy: she weighed 9lbs, 10oz (!) and was 21 inches long at birth.

Here's a pic taken of her at about five hours old.

Sylvia's here!

Born this afternoon, 5:40pm :D (one week past her projected due date)

Everybody's fine!

Sylvia's a pretty big baby, and labor took a really long time! Lindsey is incredibly tough.

I'll let Lindsey tell the story when she's feeling up to it.

Our midwives were super great.

I'm pretty elated :D :D

'bout that time then

Before today, there were no Google hits for "cybergoth midwifery" or even "cybergoth midwife".

BUSINESS PLAN. We're claiming it. Unlike my other rad business plans, we're keeping this one. No scooping us, per favore.

"Please put on these fake dreadlocks, these superfluous goggles, and these stompy boots. It is time to deliver a baby."

Experienced recently, keeping it short here more as a log than as reviews:

Reading:
Nicola Griffith's Slow River on an accurate recommendation from [personal profile] watersword. So good. Wow for the realistic abuse content, ggggnnnnnngggh for the competence in water treatment facility management scenes. I feel like people who liked China Mountain Zhang, for the personal journey stuff and the mundane futuristic scifi stuff and the emphasis on physical labor and managing complicated processes, might be likely to also like this.

(Reread) a few Tamora Pierce books from The Protector Of the Small quartet for comfort. Still comforting.

All the Birds in the Sky: finished, LOVED everything except the last 10 pages which were just okay.

Started Hild and am having a tough time getting the world into my head.

Am most of the way through Harry Potter and the Cursed Child which is fairly breezy.

A bunch of Jon Bois stuff which is SO GREAT.

Visual:

In Transit, documentary, loving and unexpected. Way more about people and way less about the train itself than I thought we'd see. I had a lot of nostalgia for my times on the Empire Builder.

Schindler's List -- saw this for the first time. Stunning, of course. I'm glad I saw it on the big screen. I am glad I saw it on a Friday night when I'd had a good day and I didn't have anything in particular to do the next couple days.

Jurassic Park -- awesome and fun, maybe my 3rd or 4th time seeing it. I could probably see this once every 12-18 months.

Steven Universe -- all caught up now, love the songs, love Lion, amazed and surprised every few episodes.

A Man For All Seasons -- saw this in high school I think? So many good burns in this movie, and a fascinating portrayal of an actual conservative.

Wonder Woman -- better as an Event than as a movie (in contrast some movies don't have to be Events, like, Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever or whatever). The message the movie wants to speak is in direct opposition to the basic visual and structural form of a tentpole superhero blockbuster film. But there are fun bits.

Yuri!!! On Ice -- I'm glad I saw this and I respect it a lot but I don't love it. I think that it's the restaurant that doesn't punch you in the face for a bunch of the intended audience, and I'm not part of that audience.

Audio:

Leonard's podcasted conversations with our friend Lucian about 90s nostalgia -- I enjoyed Lucian's recurring "because Kurt Cobain" explanations of his teenage quirks.
