Is this thing on?

Testing to see if my posts are even making it to the NIT aggregator. Yes, I switched to blogger beta. However, I did have one post show up after the switch, so I think it’s just a Zionist plot.

    ok, I have to ask. everytime I see your name on an NiT comment, I wonder: what is up with that name??

  2. Slartibartfast Says:

    It’s from “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” by Douglas Adams. Funniest series of books ever written.

    Slartibartfast worked for a company that designed planets. His specialty was fiords. When asked about his name, he would immediately tell you that it “wasn’t important”.

    ah, thanks 🙂

    your wife (congrats on the good news, btw) and kids have unusual names as well–are those blog nicknames or their real names? where did they come from?

    [/nosiness] 🙂

  4. Slartibartfast Says:

    Blog names 🙂 Of course, they’re from Adams’ characters.

    More info on each:

    Zaphod

    Lintilla

    Trillian

    Of course, none of these characters has anything to do with the personalities of the related “real” family members, I just like the names. Although Zaphod seems to the he’s president of the universe!

    thanks for going to the trouble 🙂

    I have to admit, the first time I saw your blog, I was like, “Trillian? ZAPHOD?! they really named their kids that??” I was hoping they were blog names but was half afraid to ask 🙂

    anyway, welcome to the Nashville blogosphere!
