This is totally unrelated to our company or our software, but I thought it was funny enough to post for public consumption.

My wife and I are expecting our first baby in May. Before writing code, I spent 13 years in graphic design and advertising, so I want to do some sort of creative baby announcement. Now keep in mind that my wife is a code-writing geek like myself, and we share a lot of the same geek humor. So I’m brainstorming some ideas and I run one of them by her. The card would be set in Courier and simply say:

NSBaby *VictorLorenzo = [[NSBaby alloc] initWithDate:@”12 May 2010″];

or:

NSBaby *StellaGrace = [[NSBaby alloc] initWithDate:@”11 May 2010″];

depending upon the gender, actual birthdate, et cetera. I tell her my great idea via iChat. She replies with:

[NSDorkHusband cleanup];

Well, I thought it was an awesome idea for the baby announcements. Granted, my mother and 99.5% of the people we would send them to would have no idea what any of it meant, but I still think it would have been cool. Oh well. Back to the drawing board.
