N Is For Noob

I have no nests to show you.
I don't have trees near me. Urban living y'know, not much wildlife other than the hookers.
No, today I get to explain what a n00b is and why I happen to sometimes be one.

NOOB
(Internet slang, pejorative) A newb or newbie; refers to the idea that someone is new to a game, concept, or idea; implying a lack of experience. Also, in some areas the word noob can mean someone is obsessed with things.

So remember my post from last week about my mom?
I was so happy I got to show her how much I love her, and sent her the link to check it out.
She wrote me back, here is her reply:

That is most beautiful, just like you. Thank you for the great tribute. I read some of your other alphabetical posts. The one with the Dads made me cry, although happy tears. Only one mistake in the Mom one... Uncle Larry was born in North Bay, not me. I was born at Henderson, just like you and your sister. love you and thank you again for the lovely tribute.



So here is where I feel like a complete n00b. How could I not know my mom was born in the same hospital as my sister and myself?! What kind of kid am I?!
Plus, that information makes things so much cooler!!! My mom was born in the same hospital and my sister and me! Wicked!!! I'm sure not a lot of people can say that....

So hey, being a n00b isn't necessarily a bad thing.
It opened the lines of communication between my mom and I about our geneology. Now I have a craving to know more about my mom's background. I thought I knew it but learned so much already that I know I was wrong.

And that's a good thing.

Will you help a n00b today?

  1. how sweet to get to learn more about your mom. I'm an archivist and I have geneologists all the time emailing me, asking about family and photographs! {:-Deb

  4. I agree with you when you said "being a n00b isn't necessarily a bad thing." It did, after all, ignite your interest in learning more about your mom's background!

  6. Family history is always interesting. There are a few horse thieves, wild Indians, and inventors in my ancestry.

RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is.

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
