If I get a DNA test with good ancestry info, that might open up options for more cultures I could pull name options from (as I look for options to replace my IRL middle and last name, having recently selected a new first name). I'd still need to research those cultures, of course, but appropriation would be less of an issue if I actually have it in my bloodline.

Down side: if I understand how it works right, since I'm most likely XX, my results will be maternal-line focused for lack of a Y-chromosome to trace paternal-line on. But those are both also treated as extras, so... I don't know?

Now I'm curious what name you chose, but I'm not going to ask (other than by dropping this hint here :p )

I don't know whether to believe this advertisement or not, but Ancestry.com claims they can test both maternal and paternal lines in women. But it says that usually places that do it can't do that.

I agreed to come into work at 8am tomorrow, but if I go lay down for bed, I won't be able to breathe. Plus, I kinda wanna stay up all night anyways. Yet I am sick....

Plus my cousin is having the baby today, I am hoping all went well and there are no complications.

Yikes. Well glad she made it through the labor.
Why do I get my best ideas before I fall asleep? Or in the shower?
Writing epic stories in my head for my characters. I wish there was something I could stick to my head that would type out all this....

Yes. 1000 times, yes. I have said this to people. We need a brain-to-laptop interface.
Sooner or later it all gets real walk on
I was listening to The Talking Heads
Once in a Lifetime
And you may find yourself
Living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself
In another part of the world
And you may find yourself
Behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house
With a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, well
How did I get here?
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife!
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Water dissolving and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Under the water, carry the water
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean!
Water dissolving and water removing
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again into silent water
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
You may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
You may ask yourself
Where does that highway go to?
And you may ask yourself
Am I right? Am I wrong?
And you may say yourself
"My God! What have I done?"
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Look where my hand was
Time isn't holding up
Time isn't after us
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Letting the days go by
Same as it ever was
And here the twister comes
Here comes the twister
Letting the days go by (same as it ever was)
Same as it ever was (same as it ever was)
Letting the days go by (same as it ever was)
Same as it ever was
Once in a lifetime
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by


yes one may ask themselves.. and one may find themselves....
There isn't enough of me to go around 😢😭
The last time it bugged me. This time I just have to laugh.
There isn't going be a next time
Out of sight out of mind
Why do we casually say hot lava? I feel like its redundant...obviously lava is going to be hot, I mean no one says cold lava right? Because basically that's just stone (subject to geologists correction). Oh I got it! From now on I'll refer to the 'stone age' as the 'cold lava era'! Okay now I feel better about hot lava...carry on world....
Time to move on
Cold lava? I usually call it pumice.

Thinking about all the DVDs I have and which one to watch... Casablanca ... in prep of doing a stage play rp....
I'm all done Christmas shopping
Just bought the whole bar last call
I love to eat salmon but I don’t know why. There are more delicious things but if there’s salmon on the menu I’d pick it anyways.

I wonder if I have a grudge against salmon from my past life.
