Mine means "the Lord is God of the Standard Engineering Process Handbook."

That's very deep. And very appropriately describes you as well.

Did you read my post from a couple weeks ago where I said we might come down to your neck of the woods in September?

Nope, I missed that one. You guys are more than welcome to stay at my place, just let me know when you plan on coming down.

We're tentatively thinking the week of Labor Day - leaving on Friday the 2nd after work and visiting your mom on the way down, and then doing the family visit thing on the weekend while all the tourists are in town; and then sightseeing during the rest of the week.

Will you be working all that time? You should "get sick" that week. :)

I know I'll have that Sunday and Monday off and I only work 11 to 4 on Saturdays, but I can try to get that day off. If you think you'll be in town before 6 p.m. on Friday, I can probably get off early, too.

Well, considering we get off work at 5, we probably won't be in town by 6 on Friday. You can work on Saturday if you want - I haven't figured it out yet but I'm thinking Saturday dinner at your grandparents' house, and then Sunday brunch at my grandparents' house. And I don't think we have anyone else to visit (we'll visit your mom on the way down on Saturday morning - you could come up too, if you want).

But I still need to figure out exactly when we're doing what we're doing. I'll keep you posted.

There is a tavern in a small town in Arizona. It is inconveniently located for passers-by on a dirt road about five miles out of town, though technically within the town's border. Samuel Mono, a man from the snow-capped mountains of Utah, bought this tavern when it was run down and in dire need of either complete neglect or major restoration. Mr. Mono longed for the warmth of the Arizona desert and the quiet of the town's decreasing population. So, with a loan from the town's bank, he chose to perform a restoration. The town noticed with humor how long the restoration process took. He would be teased when walking into town for supplies. "Hey, Mono," the residents would snicker, "how's that tavern lookin?" Laughter. Mr. Mono, always a patient man, replied, "I suppose it got run down at its own pace. I'll build back at my pace!" He'd wink to no one in particular. Nobody was impressed with his ambition or his clever use of words. Then one spring morning he finished the final touches of paint on the walls, checked to make sure the taps were pouring correctly, and put up an OPEN sign. Outside, the locals could see the new name of the tavern: something which spoke true to Mr. Mono's pace of rebuilding. The sign of the tavern said, "Sam's Long-Awaited Tavern and Eatery."

I got my user name from the type of font used for that story up there.

I guess Mono's pace ended fruitfully, eh?

YOU'RE gonna end fruitfully.

You know, I can't remember anymore. I think I was just looking for something that was unusual but not ugly. And Nicoal was already taken. :)

I had an old LJ called oranor, before Dad found it and started complaining about what I was writing, which made me make a new one. Oranor was a bastardized spelling of "oh no" in an Australian accent. My boyfriend at the time and I said it to each other all the time.

"Rivulet" is a hapax legomenon of Daphne Du Maurier's "Rebecca" I think. I decided that that's where you got it. :)

My first year at Dartmouth, I worked in one of the dining halls in order to earn some extra cash. The supervisor, Tim, was an unbelievably attractive senior who took a liking to me (primarily because I wasn't stultifyingly late all the time). One day, in his mildly flirtatious way, he asked me to do something beginning with the phrase "Hey Luckaduck, something something" and I thought that was cute. I started calling him Timbo. Anyway, one torrid love affair later and here I am with Luckaduck.
