    After a rather lengthy...vacation...from TA and HoL i hope to return as before. Been busier than busy(thus my absence) with work and family.

    ATTN: My wife gave birth to our third child on July 10th at 10:59am!! :thumbup: I now have a SON :D :) :-? He was born 19.25 inches long and weighed 6 lbs 7.5 oz. We named him: Corbin Aeolas Paul (the Paul was tacked on by my wife for several reasons). Don't know as many of you care, but I felt like tellin ya'll since I put ya through that name thread :lol:

    My work has kept me rather...tired. I have been working 6 days/week since Easter for 9-11 hrs/day. That with the addition of an infant/newborn have kept me from the pc. Since things have calmed down (season over) I hope to return to HoL. I see many new people out there, some of the die-hards are still around, and some oldies have disappeared.

    You might also have noticed that the RP section is down as usual.

    Top 5 reasons why she did so:

    5. So that later in life he can legitimately call himself Paul.
    4. So if he becomes a meataxe his friends can start a catchphrase like "I'm going to put a C.A.P. in your ass!"
    3. All your other kids have 3 first names (that's just a guess).
    2. Sharing a name with a Saint is never a bad thing.
    1. BECAUSE YOU STILL FUCKING SUCK AT CHOOSING REASONABLE NAMES THAT PEOPLE CAN LIVE WITH!

    Corbin Aeolas? The reason she added Paul was so the kid doesn't come how from school one day and shoot the both of you.

    Yeah, that's true. I'll just pretend I never read the "name" Corbin Aeolas and from now on he's a Paul.

    Major Major Major sounds so much better than Major Major. Now all we need is for an IBM computer with a sense of humour to draft him into the army and promote him to...Major.

    Yes, but I just wanted to say Major Major. Rolls of the tongue easier than Major Major Major. By the way, call your kid Paul. I always have to pronounce my last name for people and it's annoying as hell. Imagine having to do that for your first name (names?).

    Snow, my parents changed the last name of our family because that many people fucked up the pronunciation of it repeatedly.

    People can mispronounce anything. Have you ever told anyone what your name is and had them correct you?

    I don't look spanish, but my dad is, and he named me Fernando. I've had people, sometimes the same people, insist my name is Fredrick. I even had one douche say my name is Fredigar.

    People can usually pronounce my name just fine, but the misspellings are what really drive me insane. Charlie->Charley isnt that bad I guess, but...
    Maguire->Mcguire, Macguire, Maqwuire, Mcquire, Magquire, Magaquire, Mquire, Mequire.

    Its just depressing when it happens.

    Okay this can men two things.
    1. You don´t party.
    2: you are a sober partybreak.

    Corbin can be aceppted with doubts, aeolas (where the fuck did you get that from) is a nonoNO, paul is all fine. I´m betting he will present himself as: Hi my name is Corbin A. Paul, but just call me Paul." There will also be a small hint in the tone of his voice that implies that you will never know what that A means.

    Why must people have long nd tremendously stupid names for children these days? why can´t people be a little conservative in the naming of children? Damned name-liberal hippies better just wait when the revolution comes......

    Ohh and congrats with the baby, you planning to have manny?
