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

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

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
