I have plans today to meet my uncle and cousin at noon (15 minutes from now) for lunch, somewhere between my apartment (near Davis Sq) and my uncle's apartment (Arlington Center). But I don't know where. This is what we call poor planning.

So far this week, I have received one piece of mail addressed to Rosa Borealis-Carson and one to Rosa Borealis. The second was from someone who doesn't know my legal last name.

I am tickled.

My naming scheme is, broadly, "North". My current computer is "ultima thule", I'm aroraborealis, the computer I had before was named something snowy, though I don't remember exactly what.

Anyway, I'm getting a new computer! But I have no idea what to name it. Any briliant thoughts? Or even just moderately clever ones?
