I have been waiting to post the news. Thor is going to be a big brother. Technically, he already is a big brother in the sense that the baby exists. It just hasn't been born yet. I waited to tell you because I wanted to know if it was a boy or a girl, so we could give the little tyke a blog appropriate name. You do know that Thor's actual name is not Thor, right? Anyway, first tme out there was absolutely no cooperation on the part of the child in-utero. That led to rampant speculation that it was indeed female. Today we found out the answer.
I bet you would like to know, wouldn't you? Not yet.
First I wanted to tell you, that Thor has names picked out. Lance if it's a boy or a girl. Or Pinocchio.
And I was worried about a good blog name.
Now that we know the sex, I spent some time online ( 5 minutes) searching for a Thor related gender specific, sibling suggestive pseudonym for the one who has not yet been named. No luck. Norse mythology seems to favor one sex over the other. All the good ones are given to the guys.
Yep. It's a girl. A little sister for Thor. We shall call her Sparkles, as she was christened by the "ladies who weekend". I briefly considered Sparky, but that only seems appropriate if she ends up being a ham radio operator. Which, if she wants to be, is okay by us.

Today is her birthday. She would have been 36. What do you think would have her attention these days? Having already portrayed the victim of a zombie attack in an independent film, and a pirate on haunted ship, done voice over work for video game, co-authored ,with Peccable, an award winning IF game, road tripped around Europe with her sisters, did karaoke in Tokyo with Sarcas-sis and her BIL, visited London solo, wrote for Phillyist & Shiny Shiny, not to mention building a global following with this very blog, well, what would be next ? I don't pretend to know, but without a doubt it would be interesting, and she would be giving it her all.
Today we will stop at her plaque in Rittenhouse Square. And we are finally going to look for the brick with her name on the walkway of the Ruth and Raymond Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine, across from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. It was donated by her co-workers.
If you read a good book today, give her a thought. She loved books. Or, if you grab coffee at Starbucks, or dance in public to the music on your iPod even if no one else can hear it.
And if you make it to Rittenhouse Square, be sure to kiss the frog.
So Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering? Well, if it's what in the blazes happened to May, you are. What was it, like two and a half weeks long? It was here and gone before I even got tired of the picture on the calendar. Good news though. When I turned it over I liked June's picture even better.
June is a nice month. We get to celebrate lots of things. Flag day, Fathers Day, the summer solstice, and, Sarcasmo's birthday.
Here are a couple of links to hold you over until your Flag Day Gala.
Licensed to Chill - Is it me, or does this frozen berry likeness of Daniel Craig remind any one else of Hans Solo after he was dipped in carbonite? I'd like to try a pomegranate one.
Zombie Haiku - One of the runners up is our own victriviaqueen. Her entry could be titled "Love Hurts"
Zombies & Torsos - seems to be a theme doesn't it ? This ties it together nicely.
