Fewer people in Borders today! On Tuesday I tried to log back on after lunch, but there were too many connections and I couldn't.

Also I had a thought about crawfish and their different possible names. So I made a chart:

      -FISH -DAD -MOM
CRAW-  yes   yes  no
CRAY-  yes   no   no


I feel like I wanna start calling them "crayparents" just to annoy people. But more likely I'd just confuse them, so NEVER MIND.

In the software industry, we call that a truth table.

That could be why some people just call them mudbugs.

I wonder, does the cray/craw regionalism cross over into supercomputers?

Of course not. Computer scientists can't call them "Craw computers"; the term would stick in their craw!

Crawmammy

I think the mother should be called "Crawmammy." I've eaten a crawmammy before I went to the casino buffet. I got a whole plate of crayfish and one of them was full of eggs. It was like caviar. I've never had caviar at all, so I found it gross.

Eww, y'know what sucks? Eating sardines... and discovering that one of them was pregnant. The eggs form this hard inedible little mass inside the fish. Bleh!
