Baby Shower 2: The Quickening

We're off for B's second baby shower at her folks' place in Novato. Here's one of the things I've learned about weddings and baby-havings over the years:

Buy things off of registries when you attend events!

I once made the mistake of buying some friends some random stupid gift instead of something off their wedding registry. Then I got married, and discovered that far from being impersonal and unfeeling, buying some completely random crap off of a registry is actually the coolest thing you can do for someone. The point of a registry is getting the sum total of the stuff on it, so even if your only contribution is, say, some napkins, or, say, some diaper covers, that is still rad for the person receiving the gifts.

Our friends are great about this, I just wanted to let the public know.
