Howdy strangers

Okay, I don't really have anything to say but I need to break my weird thing I have against my blog these days (could it be -- I have other things to do!?)

In case anyone is still out there, and apparently Seraphim is (hey there), okay: here's a thing to read. Read The Brothers K by David James Duncan; it's one of the best-written and entertaining and moving books I've ever read from any period in any language. Okay, I only read English, but that's not the point. How can you deny a book that encompasses the following phrases?:

1) lolloping mutants
2) Mmmm! Yak butter!
3) The oracle demands your exhausted crustaceans.

Don't you just have to read it to know what the heck?

And the locations. Washington State, Viet Nam, Vancouver Island, and India. Go figure.

Okay, I have to go watch me some Lost (got it on dvd, addicted, MUST know what happened to Claire before I can go on in life).

Seacrest out.

PS. Oh yeah, I'm having another baby. Top names we're considering:

Boy:
Shecky
Mo
Narthex
Thomas Kincaide, painter of light
Killer


Girl:
Heavenly Haraani Tiger Lily
Lakota
Cardamom
Sheena
Hwin

There, now you don't have to ask!

Cheers! My vote's for "Shecky," though "Thomas Kincaide, painter of light" might be a little more lucrative.

David James Duncan rocks. His collection of short stories, "River Teeth," is incredible.

YYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY!
I'm so so so so happy for you! I mean, except for the whole labour thing, which pretty much sucks, but the whole brand new human being thing is really cool.
at least after they move out of the house... :P
congratulations.
my vote is for Narthax.

(ps: only crazy people have 3 kids, didn't you know?)

You're actually, really, truly pregnant again? Wow. My vote is for Elvis (boy or girl, in fact). Actually shaking a bit so going to down lots of strong Scottish tea and call John. Bug live.

Matthew Francis said...

Okay... is this for real? Because, if it is, congratulations to you both!

HHHHHHHHHHAAAA!!!!

That's exceptionally great news! I'm smiling SO big for you right now.

LaKota...like the Native Nutrient guy...oh yeah that's my pick.

Oh, and i say go for three of each... start a family band and take the show on the road. You've got the wheels to go on tour with already anyway....

My friends named their baby boy "Crash", no joke.

MatJenny said...

A) Yes, I'm serious.:-) Thanks for the congrats and prayers.

B)Crash. . .hmmmm. . .

CONGRATULATIONS! I am so excited and happy for you and this new human being :) This you already know, though. Hee hee.

RW said...

Well, well, well - that is some news there.

Congratulations to you and Fr. John.!

Tabatha said...

HA! I love you! Shecky all the way!

You promised to lend me that book.

Matthew Francis said...

Awesome!

myn said...

WOW!! YAY...more Hainsworths...

CONGRATS!!!!

Dianne said...

Congrats! So will you be out for women's retreat again? The ladies at St.Peter's will miss if you don't!

How about Heaven Lea ( my friend did this to her daughter - last name ? Adcock !!!

Krista said...

congratulations! This is very exciting news...God Bless you during this special time! :)

Rachel said...

Yay for babies! Congrats to you both! David James Duncan sounds ingenious, will have to look him up. As for names, I'd go with a saint...how about Bigdonius (can't spell it, but I think he's commemorated sometime in Sept.)? ;)

Susan Katherine said...

OK, we've got our brains into it and the most Scottish name we can think of is "Heather Doo'cot Skye Hainsworth". Howzat?!!!
Beats "rionnag mhor" which either means 'large mackerel' or 'great star' - either one is um, interesting, but that's what acquaintances (not friends) of ours have called their newest addition...

T. said...

Your back on blogger!! Hooray! Deifnately Narthex or Sheena. Those are my top picks! I am SO putting the book on my list! I've been looking for something to read now that I have a few scarce moments with no TAing this month!

MommaKim said...

I vote for Dunster--middle name BC!
Pay hommage where it is due! Congratulations!
