And...

And we're back.

I don't suppose you'd believe I was having router issues this entire time?

No?

Dammit.

Susan has been yelling (literally YELLING) at me to do an update and let you guys know how everything is going. I have been putting this off because I've:

a) been waiting for something bad to happen

b) trying to sleep in the few minutes when I'm not working or changing diapers or cleaning up puke or feeding the baby or bathing the baby or rocking the baby or telling the baby to stop crying or walking around at 4 am with the baby in my arms because she feels like screaming instead of sleeping and Susan is making comments about murdering one or both of us if she can't get an hour's sleep

On an unrelated note: Parenting is AWESOME!

No, everything is going great here. Our little girl is super healthy and seems no worse for wear. The only thing was she was really small and we're taking care of that with breast milk and whatever bacon grease I can slip into a bottle before Susan notices.

Seriously, when that kid is old enough to eat solid food, she is eating at McDonald's every freaking day. I am going to cram chicken nuggets down her little throat until she's spherical.

If you ever have the opportunity to hold a 2 pound human being, I suggest you give it a shot. It will give you a new and profound respect for life.

It will also FREAK YOU THE F__K OUT.

Do you know what a bradycardia is? I shouldn't, but I do.

See, preemie babies have this funny habit of letting their hearts stop beating for no good goddamned reason. Seriously, she'd just be lying there looking around and then her heart would stop.

In case you failed biology: that is not good. Your heart stopping is counterproductive to being alive.

When you have a baby girl who weighs about as much as a bottle of pepsi and who tends to die at random intervals, it kind of messes you up a bit.

And I was already messed up before this whole thing started.

But she's out of the hospital and back home with us. The bradys have stopped and she's getting more and more like a people every day.

Soon, she will be ready to begin training in our ways. I've already made excellent progress in turning my older daughter into a tremendous geek. Her sister will follow her training just in case I ever have to lop the older one's hand off and throw her down a huge vent shaft in Cloud City or something.

You want to have a back up, amirite?

Everything is going great here. I haven't slept in weeks and I think I'm starting to hallucinate, but at least all of my girls are doing okay.

I'd also like to say a special thanks to everyone who made donations or sent messages in my absence. The notes really brightened my day and I made sure to spend donations on anything you guys asked. If the note said "buy some diapers", I bought some diapers. If the note said "buy yourself some Jack Daniel's", I bought myself some Jack Daniel's.

I love the person who wrote that by the way. The Jack Daniel's comes in handy right after you change a diaper.

I'm amazed at how awesome you guys are. Every time I read stories about how terrible internet people are, I feel like reaching through my monitor and slapping the writer in the face.

They just haven't met all of the great people on the internet.

They haven't met our people.

Thank you guys for everything.

At 5:07 PM, Blogger LD Josh said...

At 8:52 PM, Blogger Bufuman said...

Welcome back(?), my friend.

 
At 11:41 PM, Blogger Patrick said...

At 4:06 AM, Blogger Pirre said...

Good to hear you are all OK, Dave. I checked the blog almost every day, hoping for an update, heh.
Take care!

 
At 7:35 AM, Blogger Nathan said...

Fantastic to hear that you're all doing all right Dave. Merry Christmas!

I'm glad she's doing well. You do realize that we need baby pictures, right?

 
At 6:52 PM, Blogger Mark said...

So glad to hear all is going well, I saw the new post in my reader and couldn't click on it fast enough!

 
At 9:35 PM, Blogger Cary said...

Glad to hear things are turning for the better.

 
At 10:01 PM, Blogger EvilTeacher said...

Welcome back! I was starting to worry that "bad things" had happened and you were too depressed to write. Good to hear that everything is well and you're now just dealing with normal parenting now.

So, now that everything is fine... BACK TO WORK! (whip crack)

 
At 5:39 AM, Blogger Just me said...

Glad to hear that everything (for the girls, at least) is going well. :)

 
At 5:53 PM, Blogger tyranastrasz said...

I'm glad everything's okay on your end now, Dave. =) Don't worry about us, we'll just chill until you're able to update regularly. I check back once a week or so when I happen to think of it.

 
At 8:42 PM, Blogger Däyna said...

I'm glad to hear she's doing better!

 
At 7:18 AM, Blogger MShake82 said...

Dave it seems like you are doing all the work and Susan is just yelling at you.

...Dave you aren't a battered husband are you?

Psssttt there are people who can help.

 
At 10:17 PM, Blogger Salt said...

So happy to hear you guys are fine.

Was kind of worried... :|

 
At 5:54 AM, Blogger Leahn Novash said...

Dave, are you going to become a GM of FF 14?

 
At 6:51 AM, Blogger Lenwe said...

Dont ever do that again!

I checked the blog everyday thinking

"I hope nothing bad happened"

I cant even look at you right now ... ugh

Glad everything is ok :-)

 
At 1:04 PM, Blogger Shayde said...

Welcome back, Dave. It's great to hear that you and your family are well!

 
At 7:50 AM, Blogger Breese said...

Hey Dave! Glad to hear everything turned out alright. Ive been following for a while now (since the beginning of the blog, actually >.<) but was never able to comment... damned Mobile internet. Been worried about ya my friend. The prolonged delays between posts may or may not of been a factor in the worrying. :P Merry Christmas to you and yours!

 
At 1:15 PM, Blogger Kevin said...

great to hear from you again, glad to hear that everything is good on your side of the internet. but on a lighter note, what do you think of all the updates for FFXI over the last 4 months? lvl cap increase, abyssea, what do you think about these issues?

 
At 9:13 AM, Blogger George said...

Great to hear that Dave! Merry Christmas and continued good luck!

 
At 9:38 PM, Blogger RedBoar said...

Good news Dave. Just had our first Christmas with our preemie. Five months old now and healthy as can be. Congrats sir.

 
At 3:12 PM, Blogger Tyler said...

Dave, you have a bad habit of making really terrible things sound funny. Doing so always makes me laugh and then I have to stop and tell myself that I'm a bad person.

I'm terrible for laughing at "When you have a baby girl who weighs about as much as a bottle of pepsi and who tends to die at random intervals, it kind of messes you up a bit."

But you definitely are right about one thing: a good internet community may be rare, but one does pop up every so often and pretty much everyone here is good people. I have the same thoughts about most of the people who play FFXI in general.

Glad to hear everything's going all right.

 
At 1:46 PM, Blogger Celeste said...

Aww ^_^ I'm glad to hear everything is okay Dave.

That condition you mentioned, I had the exact same thing when I was a child, 9 weeks early and weight 2 pound 8. I was rather freaked out when I found out about the whole heart stopping thing I had, though, so far, its had no effect on me thus far, and i'm 19.

Keep us updated Dave! =D

 
At 7:32 PM, Blogger Pawkeshup said...

Glad to hear the munchkin is alive and well!

Now you must have two more for a full party. Try to ensure they come in from the deep end of the gene pool this time...

... OK that was kind of crass even for a [GM]Dave comment...

Seriously though, hope things go very well for you!

 
At 3:07 PM, Blogger Kyle said...

I remember the first time I stumbled upon this blog. It was a great day. I spent the better part of the entire day doing nothing but reading the archives. I laughed, I cried, and I had the urge to smash someone in the face with a hammer.

I wish you the best of everything with your new addition, and the current members of your party.

 
At 1:52 PM, Blogger Hylianux said...

Just glad donators didn't tell you to use the donations to buy bad things like warcraft and devices made by the apple company... :)

 
At 1:36 PM, Blogger John said...

I love how fluid your definition of "back" is, Dave.

In seriousness, I hope everyone continues to do well, and I speak for us all when I say we look forward to your more regular return.

Be well.

 
At 3:57 PM, Blogger E+G said...

Seriously Dave, get a twitter or facebook account to let your readers (read: me) know when there are new posts up.

Glad everythings fine over there now.

Best

 
At 9:11 PM, Blogger ADCarter said...

It's VERY good to hear things are going well. I'm not religious or anything, but I pray for your daughters health when I do pray.

Stay strong. Your fans love you!

 
At 9:13 AM, Blogger Jigglyrulez said...

I know it's way off topic, but i was shopping with the wife, and saw this product... and immediately thought of GM DAVE!

come back dave!

 
At 5:12 PM, Blogger Zil said...

Dude. I keep checking for updates and........ nada.

We miss you man. Come back soon.

 
At 4:48 AM, Blogger Angelic said...

Hello darkness my old friend...

 
At 5:38 PM, Blogger swink said...

It's now about half an year ago that you've posted something on your blog Dave :S I hope everything is going well with you, your new family member, and that we hear something new from you soon.

 
At 8:54 AM, Blogger Fayune said...

Hoping all is still well with your family.

 
At 12:57 PM, Blogger menemoogle said...

Troy's comment is pretty spot-on. I didn't notice it when you originally posted this, Dave, but upon reflection, this sounds suspiciously like a goodbye post. The fact that you've been gone for nearly half a year sort of adds to that notion.

Maybe you are gone for good, Dave. Perhaps this post -or all of the posts from 2010- were sort of your "Season Finale." It almost pains me to say that, but I'm starting to suspect it's true.

I'll still make certain to check back every once in a while, just in case I'm wrong. If you were planning to return, I'm certain you will do so at some point. It would, after all, make sense that now that you have not one, but two children to take care of (and one was a special case) that you have even less time to blog.

Goodbye for now, Dave. If you're gonna come back, please do it as soon as you can. We miss you.

I miss reading your awesome posts man, really hope that you'll come back some day and make me laugh again like you did in these 4+ years.

Heya Dave,

nearly half a year now ... :-(

I really miss reading your posts and I hope anything is fine with you and your family.

Greetings from Germany

At 7:08 AM, Blogger Silly Mistress said...

Things still going okay over there??

 
At 1:03 AM, Blogger Rob Roy said...

Hope your doing well Dave. Come back at you earliest convenience, I really miss reading your posts.

 
At 6:47 AM, Blogger Ryuusuke said...

i miss my gm dave. I hope you and your family are doing well and one day to read your writing again I always enjoyed it from post number one

 
At 4:38 AM, Blogger Hagbard said...

Well, it looks like Troy (the second comment on this post) will be right in the end.

Was it a goodbye-post?

This would be one of the biggest losses that could happen to the internet.

Hagbard (still waiting)

 
At 5:08 PM, Blogger Dekler said...

Y'know Dave, you've left us pretty much stuff to re-read and laugh at once again, so I'm cool with it if you leave.

Totally unrelated, I am NOT cool with spamming bastard Budi Tanjalalala who feels the need to leave a fake comment to get attention to a dumb blog that isn't even in english.

 
At 8:38 PM, Blogger Dorian Mode said...

Happy trails, Dave, to you and yours. The frequency of checking this site asymptotically approaches zero. When will we completely stop hoping? Never, actually.

See under: [GM]Dave's Paradox.

 
At 5:18 PM, Blogger Heimiric IX said...

Guess that's it Dave...

We'll miss you.

Best.

At 8:50 AM, Blogger Axciom said...

And I guess that wraps things up. I missed Smithy, and I'll miss Dave. Thanks for the great blog sir, it was an amazing run.

 
At 12:45 PM, Blogger Kat said...

At almost 10 months, I am beginning to believe this truly is the end of a great blog - surely, GM Dave has taken some extended leaves of absences, but this one, after this post, feels like a goodbye. If it is, I can only wish you and your family the best of luck with everything.

...Goodbye

 
At 5:52 PM, Blogger ChrisK said...

Just dropping by to let you know we're still thinking of you and hoping everything is going well.

 
At 3:37 AM, Blogger Sujay said...

So beautiful the site.Thank you.

It's November 21st. I still have this site on my "daily site" list.
I miss you dave.

 
At 10:00 PM, Blogger Dogg2099 said...

Still checking on a weekly basis. Hope to find a hilarious tittle explaining the absence ( We all know why ) but there is still hope for an update.

 
At 9:13 PM, Blogger Sether said...

Is it bad that I'm hoping for a 1-year return post?

 
At 7:09 AM, Blogger Dice said...

Almost been a year, Dave. A year is a long time and alot can happen in such. I hope all is well with you and the girls of your life.

I'm not writing this to ask you to start blogging again, I'm sure that when and if you have the time, possibility and desire to write again, you will.

What I want to do is thank you. I want to thank you for four years of great reading, that has always been able to make me smile, laugh and, though more rarely, fall out of my chair.

I check back here every now and then, somewhat hoping that you've posted, but mostly to read your old posts, because they're still, after having read them a dozen times, incredibly funny.

Should you ever post again, I'll be happy and read it with joy, but should you not, I want to sincerely thank you for the time that has been.

With hopes of Susans, your daughters and your own good health, with appreciation of your posts and the kindest regards,

/ Gunnar, out of Sweden.

Miss the blog but so long as your life is a long and happy one, I'm satisfied to re-read the old crazines!

One year today. Not that I was expecting an anniversary post but it seems appropriate to leave another comment today. Just hope you and the wife and kids are doing all right, Dave. =)

 
At 3:27 AM, Blogger Saturnine said...

It's been a year. We all miss Dave, but at this point, i don't believe he's coming back. Looking back on his last post, it sounds more and more like a sign-off, and not a regular post.

Adios, Dave, and thanks for all the fish.

And laughs. Those too.

 
At 5:45 AM, Blogger Dekler said...

I'm honestly scared because I believe something bad happened to Dave. If your daughter is in such bad health, then you can imagine how this could've taken a turn for the worse. If that's the case, how the hell do you make a blogpost about that? How can you muster up the will to talk about the death of your baby girl to a bunch of strangers, after you've joked about her condition?

Dave, if you'll ever come back and read this again, then hang in there. Your wife and daughter need you to stay strong. And if the entire family is in good health, please let us know because I'm kind of freaking out about this.

At 10:56 AM, Blogger Hylian said...

Dave, I like you as a writer, and look forward to hearing more from your witty sense of humor.

That said, you don't have to do the [GM]Dave character to accomplish this. Hell, you could just create a moniker like Maddox and just start commenting on things. blog about anything. I'd imagine the FFXI well has run completely dry. If you have another place you write, please let us know.

If you want to continue [GM]Dave, by all means, keep going! I don't wanna stifle that... but I want to read more of your writings, even if they aren't that of the [GM]Dave character. y'know, like smithy.

Hey Dave. I happened upon your blog a while back. I read a solid chunk of the archive, but never could get the time to finish it. Today, I officially have read every post on this blog, and it was time well spent. It is a shame that you are gone, but I want you to know that you are still as funny as you have always been, and that will never stop.
Best of luck, and I hope that everything is going all right.

It seems Paypal doesn't let you leave notes with donations anymore, so here I am.

Every so often I get the urge to go back and read this and the Smithy blog. Every time I do so, I'm thoroughly entertained and I read them start to finish in the space of a week or so.

And every time I do, I toss a donation your way. Usually $5, nothing too significant.

I just want you to know that I'm not trying to goad you back into writing, or even really looking for a sign of life. I just feel bad because I was a teenager with no money back when you were writing this blog regularly and I was only able to donate for a fan pack once.

Years after you stopped writing, your blog still entertains me, and now that I can spare it, you deserve something for that.

I just hope you're actually still checking that Paypal account. 'Cause if you're not, that money is just sitting there growing cobwebs. That would be kind of pathetic.

P.S. I guess you CAN still leave notes with donations. That link for "special instructions to the seller" is really freaking tiny though. Why not just have a box there without having to click a link to make it poof into existence?

I don't expect you'll be back, but I've left a couple of donations for you because I've always enjoyed this blog, and still do!

And, though I don't expect you to come back, it would be really cool if you did xD

Oh man the memories. A whole summer spent going around my province(the canadian version of a state), with nothing but a shitty laptop to stay connected. Each night hunkering down and making sure my friends didnt kill themselves(literally) and reading this blog after to bring up my spirits. Truly a great run you had, and four years after i was on last i still remembered the name of the blog. Y'left an impression, ya left a good one.

Well, It's been three years today. A lot has happened in hat time, I'm sure, and I'm still back here every week checking for any news. I hope you're alright, but the sad thing about an anonymous blog is that we'll never know. Never the less, I'll keep checking, in case you ever do make a return. I hope Susan and your daughters are doing well, and you too of course.
