Round Numbers

In recognition of my 100th blog entry, I thought I would talk a little bit about round numbers.  We like to make mention of certain numeric goals.  I know I cast recognition for these targets myself, but when you think about it, not all of these numbers are really "round."

Sure, 100 has some roundness to it, but the front end of that number is extraordinarily flat.  No matter how you draw a number 1, it is as flat as the earth was before Columbus and Magellan.  If we are talking about truly round numbers, none should be recognized more than an 8.  Sure, 3's, 5,s, 6's and 9's all have their own curvature, but nothing is more round than an 8.  It is one round object on top of another!  Making it twice as round as a 0!  So why isn't 0 x 2 = 8???

Just sayin...

      I find it strange having a name theme. I'm used to John and Jane happen to start with the same letter and since they stopped at two they technically had a "theme" but only because those were the names they liked. It wasn't some "we have to come up with a name we like that fits the theme." Maybe it's just me but I find it weird that so many second gen Kellers have an intentional theme. (Outside of bible names or something. Eta so I guess I'm used to "bible names" being a theme.  But starting with the same letter is weird to me)

      I think the whole idea of a “name theme” is kind of foreign to me. The biggest family I know personally have 3 kids. More than 3 is really uncommon here. Parents will usually gravitate towards somewhat similar types of names (in terms of social background connotations, modern vs. traditional, similar “vibe”), but I’ve never heard of anyone with a naming theme outside of FJ.

      Honestly, they could actually be working and still grifting for extra cash. We obviously can’t expect honesty or true transparency from them!

      I would almost be proud of them if they were pulling this off.

      We have such an obscure naming theme that I’m not sure if my partner even noticed I did it! The obvious one is that all of us have names that are technically biblical, but so common that people don’t automatically associate it. The other 2 things with my kids nobody has ever picked up on.

      I’m never going to remember the Waller newest is Desiree and not Dorothy.  Dorothy just seems to go with the other names and Desiree seems like a stretch to make work.   Sometimes I wonder if fundies find a name first and then stretch the meaning to make it work for their purpose.
