Call me U.N.C.L.E.!

Postby lotek » 23 Jul 2010 06:29

As from yesterday I am an uncle!!

My brother's wife gave birth to a baby daughter, Lena :)


And now I understand how people can find babies pretty; the closer they are to you the prettier you think they are!

Can't wait to see her and give her her first Dune copy in advance!!

Right. Evolution wants you to help protect as many copies as possible of any shared genes in relatives' babies and wired those feelings into your brain so you don't eat them. :D

Congratulations, too! :lol:

Uncle Lotek. Has a nice ring to it.

Congrats to you, your brother, and your sister-n-law. Heck, congrats to your whole family.

Unfortunately my dad is not there anymore to see all this, but to me he lives as pearls of awareness in his descendants ;)

Congratulations Lotek! I am an uncle since september 2007 and with no children of my own (as far as I know) he is the closest relative who I will introduce to the great world of Dune when he starts reading. :mrgreen:

Congratulations Lotek! Break out the cigars & brandy!
Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.
