You can't use proper names in Scrabble. Not unless you're playing something like our home-grown modified game that we call Scribble. (In that one you get extra points if you fetch glasses of water or snacks for your mom or sibling, and you lose points for arguing. Rude words and proper nouns are allowed, and we play off of the edge of the board. The letters of two games are combined and the kids commingle their letters and take turns laying them down. They play opposite me, and if you haven't guessed by now, this was developed to encourage cooperation. It usually has a residual effect for several days after the game.)

Actually, we wanted to name him "Yeshua ben RalphandVanessa of Michigan", but it was kinda long, especially when you got the middle name in there.

I don't see why -- it's a popular name in some circles. There's no accounting for people's buttons, though.

I always thought Areola would be a nice name for a girl.

Congratulations to you avuncular celebrants!

I shall become a great-uncle for a second time any day now. Xavier is almost two, and Andrew is on the way.

I've been holding out for Christmas, like his grandfather. We want to name the kid "Jesus." For some reason his parents are opposed to this....

A marriage ceremony effects M-I-L's the way the full moon does werewolves - only the effect is permanent. *grin*

Did I mention I have become a great-uncle again? Rowan was born last friday - 19 inches, 5 lbs, 14 oz. Her big sister Gaia is very proud, Daddy survived the experience (though still has a dazed expression on his face when he sees her) and Uncle MMario got to hold her for three hours last night!

I live about 2,000 miles from my mother-in-law. We have always lived at least 10 driving hours away. This is my wife's idea, and has been ever since about 1966 when she left the effete East for the burly, brawling, hairy chested, Midwest -- specifically, St. Louis.

Life is not a comic strip. As it happens, I get along perfectly well with my highly skilled and hard working MIL, as long as the dosage is kept small.

Yes. They do. They become terrible monsters to whom their daughters are always running at the slightest hint of trouble. Then they come and visit and carp and criticize the whole time.

Just check any comic strip or movie....

All this talk of family got me thinking....

Do mothers in law undergo an unusual change at the time of their daughters wedding?
It's just that the one I might get, assuming everything carries on for a few more years, I seem to get on rather well with. And the various other bits of family seem to get on fine as well, and have done in some cases since before either of us were born.

But should our precious Mother get axed due to superstition or rumor, we need don't want to scatter our precious BS resources, so the suggestions are very useful. Son or Daughter of MOAB has to hit the ground running. Or. . .

Mother Of the Mother of all BS could be MoMOAB, or could must be MOM for short.

That would make MOAB just over half of one percent of the Whole Mudcat.

It sorts of puts everything in perspective really, like staring up into a starry sky, or looking out to the horizion hand in hand with someone you love. It just feels right, without actually accomplishing anything at all...

A small library near here has about 63,000 item and patron records in its database -- not to mention the records for over 250,000 circulations, book holds, and god alone knows how many overdue notices and "unresolved" records. All told, there are probably damn near a million records in it.

All in SQL, all retrievable, and the system runs accurately and fast.

I won't even try to guess how many data pieces WE have, but I have about times more items records ALONE.

MOAB could easily go to 25K or more and shouldn't harm the servers at all (assuming there are no other problems).

It's just another manifestation of envy, one of the Seven Capital Sins.

Honestly? I've never heard of it. That being the case, I never downloaded it. Even if I had heard of it I wouldn't download it. I will never be a slave to popular culture! Never! I am free! I am not now, and never have been, a member of the popular culture! Except for my Davy Crockett cooonskin cap back in the '50s, of course. And my Nehru jacket. And my peace buttons. And my pet rock. And my Cabbage Patch doll collection. And the Beanie Babies. But otherwise I am and have always been totally free of popular culture, except for Roy Rogers stuff. A total and complete waste, that's popular culture, and I for one am damned glad that I'm not part of it!

You want a fun evening? Here's how to have a fun evening!

Get a large white (yellow or orange is even better) but light plastic trash bag. Tie four lightweight wires about 3 feet long equidistant around the opening. Bring the wire together together and fasten a highway flare at this point.

Now, light the flare and hold the trash bag to the the hot air from the flare fills the trash bag and sends the whole thing aloft. UFO reports will abound!

(Don't do this over populated areas or when there is a fire danger.)

As for those UFO drivers, man, I dunno. I've seen a lot of testimony about these black ops, higher-than-top-secret relations with the aliens. It's a wonderful forest of partial information and bits of fact with too many bits missing. If I were retired Imight spend some time trying to make some sense of it all; as it is, it stays firmly in the bullpen.

I would dearly love to get my hands on an intact scout vessel. That would be a trip worth taking.

No Cadillacs, but I did see a Hudson Terraplane, it had a calendar in the rear window, with a circle round the 14th of February, looks like he might be heading for Chicago.
Do we know anybody in Chicago? Could be a musician, 'cos it had a couple of violin cases on the rear seat too.
Guy said he worked in air conditioning and was going to Chicago to do a bit of ventilation. That should be nice then!

Where you working -- Area 51?

Are there a series of LEO satellites hovering over your head, taking pictures of everything (and I mean everything) you do, indoors and out? Are there black, early-model Cadillacs and men in black suits nearby? Have you awakened feeling both violated and that certain parts are missing and/or probed? Are there periods of your memory that are simply missing and your have no explanation as to why? Do dogs and cats incessantly stare at you and growl, but run when you approach them? Are police officers giving you strange looks? Are you subject to unexplained dizzy spells? Do you see penguins and polar bears in your back yard? Is your imaginary childhood friend Gawain visiting you again? Are you now or have you ever been?

If you can honestly answer "NO!" to fewer than one of these questions you have nothing to worry about.

Well, I am done with this flu stuff. It was fun for a while but now it is boring. I am back at woik, aside from an occasional dizzy spell, doing right in the world.

I did catch up on my sleep, though. Almost 72 hours straight, with minor interruptions.

As for spreading viruses, I couldn't even try; I am closely monitored.
