Vacation post

We are currently having a fantastic time sailing around the Caribbean. Or at least I imagine we are. It would suck if we weren't, right? I'm not going to pay the exorbitant price for internet on the boat so you'll just have to wait till next week to find out! So since I can't update you on my cycle or how TTC on vacation is going, here are some random thoughts I've had over the past few weeks that never made it in to previous posts.

I'm a gamer. One of the games I love is Sims 3. I'll be honest, I kind of project my infertile frustration on my Sims by giving them giant families. One of the dudes I've been playing has 15+ kids with like 7 different women. =D Anyway, one of his baby mamas recently had twins and I couldn't think of a good name for them. I haven't had to name most of his kids because the mom didn't live with him so it was automated, but I had to move this girl in because her family already had 8 people. So I went to the play store and searched for a baby name app.

Plus he has some on the way.

What I found was Baby Name-o-Matic. This thing is seriously awesome. It gives you a random list of names picked out of the 5000+ in it's database, and you rate them 1-5 stars. After you rate a few it considers the ones you've given high ratings and then generates names that have something in common with them. I apparently tend to like English/Irish/Scottish names so that's what it mostly gives me. When you click on a name to rate it the app also shows the origin and meaning which is nice. I showed it to DH and he decided our girl name was going to be Aubrey. Not necessarily because he loves the name Aubrey, but because it means "ruler of elves" in French. =D Too bad for him I've had two girl names picked out for years.

Another discovery I've made recently is a baby picture generator. Someone posted about it on one of the forums I visit or on their blog, I can't really remember. The one I used was Morph Thing and it was fairly easy, although more complicated than just uploading a picture. You have to upload your picture and then tell the program where the different parts of the face are, like eyes, nose, chin, etc so it can line those up correctly. Unfortunately DH and I both wear glasses and you can still see their imprints in the generated pictures. Here they are! I think they're pretty cute.
