7790 - Webster Lake is not where they drowned Emmanuel Lewis.

eryx reminded me (indirectly) of another great crazy-long word, weezle & the dBfly inspired me to record the instructional mp3.

Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg is an unofficial name of Lake Chaubunagungamaug east of Webster, Massachusetts. The Nipmucks and other tribes gave it a variety of similar names. Most people call it Webster Lake, because they can't pronounce the Nipmuck name, but others, including many residents of Webster, take pride in reeling off the Nipmuck version.

It's pronounced like this:

Char-gogg-a-gogg-man-chaugg-a-gogg-chau-bun-a-gun-ga-maugg (mp3 of me saying it slowly.)

Slip it into conversation!



Newt is *six* years old today! He's still a little babyhead to me. Here's to my favorite red-fuzzed libran quadruped. Video of Newt a few days ago

Aww! Regal-Noot

Here are some baby pictures... it still seems like it was only yesterday.

I think he'll get the same gift as last year.. a big cardboard box filled with paper wads and milk rings.



Happy Ramadan!



Blackmail Boxes. -I wonder how much trouble he could get into for defacing government property?



I've had the Beatles (sort of a medley alternating) stuck in my head all morning. CCR is a good blotter, but it's still playing in the background.



Moment of Lyric (mp3 - via)

Long as I remember the rain been comin' down.
Clouds of myst'ry pourin' confusion on the ground.
Good men through the ages, tryin' to find the sun;
And I wonder, still I wonder, who'll stop the rain.

I went down Virginia, seekin' shelter from the storm.
Caught up in the fable, I watched the tower grow.
Five year plans and new deals, wrapped in golden chains.
And I wonder, still I wonder who'll stop the rain.

Heard the singers playin', how we cheered for more.
The crowd had rushed together, tryin' to keep warm.
Still the rain kept pourin', fallin' on my ears.
And I wonder, still I wonder who'll stop the rain.
