Saturday night.

Party night.

Date night.

Or, for Angela Chase, the night to be busy on her computer, toggling between a paper on Queen Victoria she was writing for her history class, a website about strange pregnancy cravings, and the budget she was trying to make for the summer.

She stretched her arms over her head, ready for a break.

[OOC: For that dude she lives with, but open for other phone calls.]

"You are one multi-tasking fool," Marty said peeking over her head at the monitor and then starting a small shoulder rub. "Either that or Queen Victoria had a thing for pickles and ice cream."

"Um. They only had the regular garlicky," Marty said frowning slightly. "But I got garlic salt so you can sprinkle it on them. Does that help?"

"Okay," he said leaning over to kiss the top of her head. "Though how about I make a special trip and hit the other Zabar's on the other side of the city and you finish your paper instead of going on the great pickle hunt of 1998?"

"I know," Marty said slipping his arms down to give her a hug. "But you'll still graduate on time and get some time off when the bundle of joy comes around. It's pretty smart thinking."

He then gave her a peck on the cheek. "And if you get your paper done maybe next weekend there's a B&B up in the Hamptons with our name on it."

"I try," he said with a little smirk. "Besides if we need an nanny, I'm betting Marcella will move heaven and earth to come here. We just won't allow her to cook for the kid."

"I'm not really big on the handing off of parenting responsibilities to a hired hand myself," Marty said with a nod. "Even if she would probably do it for free."

"Well I'm not saying no to daycare," Marty said with a grin. "Sorry, I was just thinking about some of the families back in Grosse Pointe where everything was handed off to the nanny to take care of while the parents went to the Carribean."

"You will," Marty said with encouragement. "We'll make it all work somehow. I promise."

"Um... sorta," Marty said scratching his head. "I know it's weird? But every time I start making a list I keep thinking of the kids that showed up at school."

"Simone?" Marty asked raising an eyebrow. "What kind of kid looks like a 'Simone'?"

"She sounds like someone who'd write nasty gossipy things on bathroom walls about a girl just because she wore the wrong type of shoes to gym," Marty replied. "Though it sounds a lot better than the ones I had on my list."

"Tallulah if it's a girl," Marty admitted looking ashamed. "And Fredo if it's a boy."

"You like Tallulah?" Marty said looking amazed. "I think you need to lay off on the garlicky pickles. Clearly it's affected your brain."

"Lulu? Do you want our kid to be beat up for lunch money?" Marty asked looking horrified.

"Avery is actually pretty good," Marty said looking relieved. "And I like the covering of both cases."

"I like it," Marty grinned. "It has that proverbial ring that everyone is looking for in a name."

"Kinda," Marty agreed. "Who knows? Maybe Simone will grow on me."

"Probably not," he agreed as he leaned in for a kiss. "But stranger things have happened."

"Exactly. We're like a romance novel," Marty joked. "A name like Simone would totally fit in that case."

"Never got around to it," He admitted as he held her close. "Though everyone thought I looked extra doofy that day. Couldn't stop grinning. Rory congratulated me though. Have you told anyone else?"

"Maybe we should send word out," Marty said with a shrug. "Just get it out there and demand baby gifts."

Marty gave her an impish grin.

"Dear friends," he recited. "Angela's preggo. I'm the dad. Send us expensive baby presents."

"Well I thought we'd be more informal with the announcement," Marty joked. "Make it sound casual and fancy free."

"Better not," Marty chuckled. "Because someday the kid is going to find the notice and yell about how she's a post script to our lives."

"See? Father knows best," he joked and then poked her in the side. "Move over. I've got an e-mail to write."
