Put on your thinking caps

Angry Boy is going through a Thundercats phase. I lay the blame entirely at the feet of this website, which has the intros for all of the cartoons I watched as a kid. AB loves the ones for Thundercats and Gummi Bears. Especially Thundercats.

He has taken to requesting being addressed as Lion-O, whom he appears to like because Lion-O was the leader and has a sword. He refers to his own mother as Cheetara. NSAH is now called Panthro, and Small Dog must answer to Snarf.

The newest member of the family? Tygra.

For purposes of this website, I'd rather not refer to something that attaches itself to my nipples as "Tygra," or any member of the big cat family. So I'm taking suggestions for a nom de blog for the littlest, newest member of the Angry family.

UPDATE: Sorry, thinking in my head again and apparently not transferring key details to the keyboard. The littlest, newest is another boy. I was thinking ALB for Angry Little Brother/Baby, but surely you all are way more creative than a sleep-deprived mama such as myself.

UPDATE II: OK, apparently I'm still not being clear. Again, blame the sleep loss. "Newest" = here. (How does Phantom type one-handed so well and so often? I suck at it.)

Well, it has got to be something about angry or not angry or furious or pleased or something like that, no? Maybe you'll just have to wait to meet her? Him? Her?

Does he show any propensity toward anger? Then Also Angry Boy (AAB or A²B) might work. (In case the character didn't map correctly in this font, that's "A-squared-B."

If not? Calm Boy (CB). Or Disinterested Boy (DB). Apathetic Boy wouldn't work, I guess.

Hmm. Those are all kind of lame. Lemme think on this.

I'm guessing that the newest member has arrived? Congratulations!! Is it a girl? If so, then you have to go with Angry Girl!! If it's a boy, maybe Not So Angry Boy (NSAB)?

The Wild Boy didn't get his bloggy name until several months of living with him, when we in fact realized that his wildness knew no bounds.

I say wait, or at least feel free to change your mind later on down the road.

For now, you could steal DQ's suggestion and call him NNB -- for not nice baby.

You are very coy, APL!

I do sort of like Tygra, though. I mean, not on the nipples. But it's a pretty hip and styling nom de blog.

So happy to hear that you all are well.

What about AB2.0? or AB06?

At any rate, congratulations to all you angry people!

So is newest littlest baby actually here? or still inside you, as Curious Girl would put it?

There's always New Boy, but after a while he won't be new. Picking pseudonyms is tricky (unless you're jo(e), and the adjectives fall so trippingly off the tongue and fingers).

Wait, wait, did bloglines miss something? Is the boy baby HERE? Not in utero, but HERE? Wow!

I think Tygra would be scary, yes, but also -- if I'm remembering my newborn nurse-like-a-hoover phase (or, rather, my BABIES' nurse-like-a-hoover phases) -- somewhat accurate. Especially once you get too sleep-addled to trim his teeny-tiny adorable cuts-your-breasts-and-belly everywhere fingernails. But that's not helpful, is it.

I'm miserable with pseudonyms. Really, I got nothing. Except questions, or one question: is the baby HERE?

I'm wondering if I missed something, too?

I think ALB is a great name. Tygra is great but does give the image of your breast being ravaged.

I'm reading this and thinking that I missed a major announcement! Did I? I would sure hate to think that I missed Angry Boy Mark II's birth! Why do I not get these memos?

Congrats, if in fact they're in order! Given that you're sleep-deprived, I'm guessing yes. And adding my vote for Tygra... it cracks me up. But ALB is nice, too.

Okay, I've been confused, too.

Now that you've clarified, CONGRATS!

We called our son (the second kid) "little guy" until very recently. No idea why. He was just the littlest in the family and he was a guy....

Not-so-creative-minds here...

You know, I'd been checking to see if there was an announcment for a few days...so congratulations.

I like Angry Little Brother or Not-so-Angry Little Brother as the case may be.

I suppose congrats are in order, but I'll believe it when I see a picture of Tinier Angry Boy (TAB) flipping us the bird.

That's what I thought!

Only I wasn't sure, and didn't want to say congrats and sound like a doofus.


And it's been so long since I've seen thundercats that none of those names ring a bell. I am no help.

I am thinking something baby related until you know his personality -- bloggy name changes are totally allowed.

I like ALB though

Woo-hoo! Houston, we have a baby! Congrats to the entire Angry Family! Yay for the newest family member!

Congrats! APL -- you'll have to write us up a baby story! We're all interested to know how the birth was, and what the little guy weighed and all that stuff! :)

CONGRATS!!!! I agree with the nondescript baby names until the personality is more known. You could just call the baby "2" - that's easy to type one-handed and all.

That has to be the most casual birth announcement ever. Congratulations to the Angry Family and welcome to the Little One.
