We had a very nice shabbos with a lot of hoopla, my parents, in laws, older brother and family, sister amd BIL with family all came up and we made a kiddush in shul for the baby. I gave a nice speech about names and why we gave our child an English name that sounds like the Hebrew name but means something slightly different with an English pronunciation. I didn't want her to think that the one name I gave her was 2 different names, as it is pronounced differently by us and by them. Shabbos was very nice, hopefully one day we'll see the whole family together again. (J22, you left first).

A new phenomenon in the anonymous blog world is occurring, in what might be considered a new evolution of the blog. Anonymous bloggers are generally known to a few select people, such as spouses. As such it is impossible to complain about your spouse or about something you don't want your spouse to know about on your own blog. Shifra wrote about her MIL's dish washing ability at the Muqata, while PyschoToddler went over the conversation he had with his wife about his planned HDTV and XBox 360 on Ask Shifra.

Of course this only works if the people you are complaining about don't read the other blogs that you can write on. Otherwise you will need a new anonymous name for your anonymous self. It only gets more confusing.

It can also be ruined if some unthinking or unscrupulous blogger directly emails your spouse with the url of the offending post.

There are two kinds of people in this world.
Those that suck and those that don't.
The person who emailed your wife sucks.

Well, fortunately, it did not happen with this post, but it did happen with another post that my daughter wrote last year.
