It seems like TMI is normal around here... I think I know more about bturk (and now NHPlanner ;) ) than I know about most of my male friends.

I think moustaches are strange. Either you want facial hair or not. None of this in-between moustache nonsense.

Its like a mullet. Choose either long hair or short hair! make up your mind. None of this "business in the front, party in the back!"

I'm not too shy....I tend just to share things with pretty much anyone...never really got me into trouble....yet.
After my trimming mishap in college, I tried a fu manchu but it looked really stupid, so I shaved the whole thing and waited the 2 days for it to grow back.

Should I be posting this in the shaving thread? ;)

getting back to the spirit of this thread....

I had a phone conversation with the investigator on one of the court cases I was "fortunate" enough to be a juror on, asking questions about the guilty verdict we came up with. I tried to forget that case....I really didn't like reliving a statutory rape case in my head.

There is an interesting story about a spirit that used to haunt the house next door to my office.

999 is the UK equivalent of 911.

Figures, in a country with numbers like "milliard" and "vicker's dozen" and "stone."

How heavy is a "stone" anyway?

My favorite Bloodhound Gang (from 3-2-1 Contact!) episode was when they thought a house was haunted, but it was really a cardboard cutout with a sheet on it that traveled around a model train track.

I know I won't be the one to start the GW sucks thread. But then, I'm a chicken...

[blatant redirection tactic]

I always hate sucking thread, but how the !@#$ do you get it through the eye of the needle for sewing otherwise?

(blatant redirection to ranch topic ;) )

I would guess that it's probably like trying to find anything on my desk right now. I hate a messy desk... and right now, mine is the worst!

Speaking of messes, I am going to revisit the outhouse thread to post some ice cave pictures.

I have to stop at a site on my way into work tomorrow and take some pictures. I hope there is enough light.

The dysphotic zone of the ocean is from about 50 meters to about 1,000 meters depth. In this zone, there is enough light for organisms to see, but it is too weak for photosynthesis to happen.

above the twilight zone is the sunlight zone or euphotic zone. The last zone is the midnight zone....

Auroville was founded on 28 February 1968 in South India.

The international township is to be a site of material and spiritual researches for a living embodiment of an actual human unity.

Surrounding the Matrimandir, the soul of Auroville, are the four zones of the township: cultural, industrial, residential and international. In the last zone, all the nations of the world are invited to build a pavilion representing their specific culture and genius.

Yeah!! Keep us posted - I'm sure we all want dibs on the "name NHPlanners baby" contest :)

Along those same lines.... Birth control is flippin' expensive, so I stopped taking it, plus we thought we'd start trying in a couple months.

However...

Pregnancy might be the news that I get this weekend, a lot earlier than expected.

The only chance you'd have is if we were to have another girl....we already have a boy's name picked out. (Elijah)

I'm blanking on the middle name for some reason....I think we were looking at either John or Joseph for the middle name...I'll have to ask my wife for a reminder. :)

Girls names, not really....since we've really decided not to do too much before we know for sure....we've already had 2 near misses (late periods) where we both were disappointed and decided not to get too excited beforehand this time.

Not since that one time....and though she's scheduled for a period right about now (that hasn't started) she's experiencing some lower abdomen pain, a usual sign that the period is coming :(

She took a test on Wednesday (her scheduled starting day) and it was negative.

tom petty had it right... the wai - ai- ting is the hardest part!

SO TRUE!!

Well, we'll see... we haven't really been trying, but we haven't tried not to either, ((if that makes any sense))

Maybe we need a new section of cyburbia - TTC cyburbanites :)

All of this naming talk has me thinking....how many of the females on here have the middle name "Ann" or "Lynn"? It is a strange phenomenon that I just don't understand, but it seems like the vast majority of women that I know have one of those two middle names.

My middle name is Marie, but my mom's is Ann, and my sister's is Lynn. They are/were popular, but don't know why?

Speaking of names, my first, middle and last name each contain six letters. I bear the mark of the beast!!! However, I broke the cycle by choosing a confirmation name with six letters. Take THAT Lucifer!!

My mom doesn't like names that have the "e" added- this is why my sister's middle name is Ann and mine is Brook.

My kids are all named for towns in Iowa. I really didn't mean to do it for the first two. I thought Clinton and Spencer were good names. Then a friend, was like, what are you going to name the next one Fort Dodge? So I decided to stick with it, I named him Slater. I discovered that not many towns have girls names though, I had Kesley picked just in case
