department of good news and (very) bad visual puns

two lions
I'll update as soon as we have the beta number. Is it okay to say that I love you, Trish!


eta: and for those who are sitting on the edge of your seats, the actual number was 325, which we're completely thrilled about. Now, on to the next hurdle....

Jeni said...

I thought for sure I'd never figure out the pun, and then I was cranky because no one in the comments explained it ... and THEN I figured it out. Hee hee!

The Nanny said...

Okay, I'll admit--I *still* can't figure out the pun. Help?

But I'm over the moon for you about the beta!

Heh. I got the pun 'cause I'd seen Trish's twitpics.

Congratulations!

Which Box said...

Daggone, I am slow. IT's taken me a while, and I had to go look at Trish's pic to get it. Finally. (was stuck on: twins? But it's too early? doubling? but how can it double when this is the first beta?.........etc). I need more sleep.

Seriously, congrats. Very, very (cautiously) happy for you.

Patti said...

Cautiously thrilled for you, Niobe..and just a little bit (okay lot) jealous!

Lavender Luz said...

Wow! Double Lions!

Sarah said...

hurrayyyyyyy!!!!!!!! it may just be the first step but it's certainly one worth celebrating!!

is waiting for a second beta any less agonizing when you have a surrogate sharing the agony with you? or is there just twice as much angst to go around?

Artblog said...

Oh yay, yay, yay! Good luck for the rest, praying, praying, praying :)

missedconceptions said...

Fantastic news!

(I still don't get it; I am sick and hung over from codeine. But I really, really don't get it. Really.)

excavator said...

Wonderful news, Niobe. I'll be following your progress.

Great number!

babyattheend said...

Great news! Congratulations!

thirtysomething said...

Yipeeeeee!! Great news!!

Which Box said...

OK, so, since it took me so long, I'm feeling the need to help out folks who aren't getting the visual pun.

But then I wonder, wait, what if I've just made this up? What if I've convoluted this so it isn't actually what it's intended to be? What if I am the biggest dope in the history of DBJ?

Does it help if I say the type of pregnancy test used had two lines?

niobe said...

Which Box: Two "lines" is it exactly.

Get it? I crack myself up. (though I probably should have tried to be just a wee bit clearer)

The Nanny said...

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

I get it now.

Thank you for the help :)

Melissia said...
