Babble - cellophane
the story of an invisible girl

Babble
I am so busy these days! In the Olden Days, I could multi-task at work. Read/write emails, LJ, etc, while things were compiling or loading. Now because I'm pair-programming most of the time, a lot of my internet-time is gone. I'm behind on everything.

So if I seem quiet or out of touch, that's partly why.

My bro has not offered to let me name the baby, I just plan on doing it anyway. If Will had been a girl, he would have possibly been named Madeline, it had made the Top Two girls' names. I think it's a great name, and if it's a girl they must use it! That's all.

A boy named Madeline would be strange, so I'm willing to accept compromise if it comes to that.

My bro lives in Logan Square, and my parents will probably end up somewhat near there.

Ow, ow, arms are still sore. But I went skating this evening. Ow, now my knee hurts too. Stupid body.... get better, darn it!

My home internet was broken, but now it is fixed. Thank goodness for that; without it I'd never got anything done.

I need to javascript a pseudo-popup window tomorrow. I learned a new struts thing today though, a multibox, and it's pretty cool! Happy with the way my task is almost-working, except for the lack of a popup....

Must go to bed now. Tomorrow morning I will take out the garbage. Whee.

There's a JS library out there called overlib. We use it for all our pseudo-popup stuff, it's quite slick. Check it out, it might save you a lot of programming time.

Hey, no need to explain. We're all busy nowadays. I'm pretty much married to my job. So if you've only heard but an occasional peep out of me lately, that's why. :)

Anyone naming a baby should check out the Social Security Administration's Popular Baby Names page.
http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/babynames/

In my experience, you don't want a name from the Top 25, because there will be three of them in the kid's kindergarten, but you do want one from the Top 100, or else have a good reason.

On a more specific note, Madeleine has a problem, because no one ever knows if they should spell it like that, or Madeline (with only two Es).

Good luck!

Do not forget Madelyn!

I like the name Madeline, with that spelling, because of these books.

However "Madison" is a popular girls' name (in the top 10 on that site), and both will likely end up "Maddie" when young, and that's the main reason my brother and sis-in-law started looking at other girls' names.

Who knows! We'll find out, sometime around December 23... (:

Sorry dear it's downhill bodywise from here on it.

Speaking from much farther down the slope.

I know what you mean about not having enough time for the Important Internet Interactions. During the last three weeks I've been inundated with production support issues at work, with almost no time at all for LJ and such. :(
