Darwin award disqualification

[ #39324 ]

I feel obliged to announce that I have disqualified myself from the Darwin Awards. No matter how creative or clumsy I now am*, I'm simply not going to get one. Elizabeth $middlename Pavlović was born at 07:03 yesterday, her due date - on schedule, without even having seen the project plan.

More information, and links to pictures, in Andrea's blog.

* but to be sure of this, I intend to stick around until she disqualifies herself too.

Loading... please wait.
  • but she'll never be within budget
    • So then he'll have picked Good and Fast, and abandoned Cheap. I'm sure the parents can live with that :)

      • My three can attest to the fact that I have no problem with good and fast. Now if they'd only keep their rooms tidy! ;-)
  • Congratulations on your disqualification :)

  • Yippee! Well done. Bring her to YAPC::EU - Perl needs some young blood :)
    • Might be a bit early for a Perl conference. My son waited until his third month to make one :) (IPW 2008 in Pisa)

      Congratulations Nicholas ! Welcome to a whole new world of tuits !

    • Yes, but she's a bit late to apply for send-a-newbie, and she can't afford to pay her own way.

      More practical problem is that she doesn't have a passport yet. Heck, she doesn't even have a birth certificate (there's 6 weeks to register that). She does have an NHS number, though. I wonder if that's allocated before you're even born. :-)

  • There are few things so delightful or beautiful as the occasional delighted or very happy look from our 6 month old boy.

    Certainly it is hard for me to imagine anything so unequivocally positive, satisfying and encouraging.

    God bless you and your family.
