New (additional) blog

I haven't decided quite where I want to go with this, hence the title. ABT UNK are abbreviations commonly used in family trees, for "about" (when you're not sure of a date) and "unknown" (when you're not sure of a name or location). I've maintained a Personal Ancestral File (PAF - free!) family tree for at least ten years, and recently purchased an Ancestry.com membership, mostly to do research for my 81-year-old mother. I've also been following my friend and fellow librarian Amy's genealogy blog, We Tree. While I don't consider myself to be a geneablogger like Amy is, I do believe in preserving personal and family memories, and I really liked their idea of an Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories and have decided to try to do that here, as it didn't really fit in my book blog or my work-related blog.

We'll see what happens after that. I'll make this blog pretty later too.

  1. HEAR YE! O HEAR YE!!
    Whether you obtain morality4mortality to wiseabove
    or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
    I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
    you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
    which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile:
    I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

    Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
    of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
    An XtraXcitinXpose with no
    zooillogical-expiration-date?
    An IQ much higher than K2?
    An extraordinarily, anti-establishment victory
    with a sardonic, satirical wit Who’s savvy??
    Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
    (with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

    “Faith, hope, and love,
    the greatest of these is love -
    jump into faith...
    and you'll see with love”
    Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
    God believes in you.

    Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
    from a passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
    nonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsX…
    of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

    Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big House.
