Lars found that it means ancestor. We prefer the one syllable spelling too. I think it sounds very barbaric or viking/warrior like. This name just feels right like it would fit him and us. It is a Danish tradition to have your son's middle name be the mother's maiden name. Lars shares his father's middle name which is his mothers maiden name. Should we follow that tradition then his full name would be Roan Stark Barlow. Meaning ancestor to Stark and Barlow. I like how it sounds, but am still open to other ideas for middle names.

I recently watched a short series on Hulu called, The Booth at the End. You can find it here. I really enjoyed it and if I were teaching a theatre, acting ,or writing class I would show this series to my students. The premise is basic, a guy in a cafe, people go to him and ask for something. He gives them a task to complete and in return they get what they want. Here are some reasons why I think you should watch it.
#1 It all takes place in this cafe so it is up to the actors to describe what is going on and help advance the story. It is well written and well acted.
#2 The situations people are in and the choices they make just get to me in a mind stirring way. In one of my earlier blogs I spoke about how I love to find out what makes people tick. This satisfies that for me.
#3 You really have to ask yourself in certain situations "how far will you go to get what you want?" Do you go to extremes to get it or do you just wait it out and see what happens. The choices people make in this series and the outcome to some of them really got to me and made me think deeply about the meaning the writer or director were trying to make.
In fact after we watched it, only took maybe 2 hours to get through the 6-7 episodes, it sat with me for a few days and I had a lot of conversations with Lars about it. Basically it is a series that you can interpret based off your own morals and beliefs and I found it interesting and enjoyable to exercise my mind in that way. Hope that makes sense, sometimes I have trouble explaining stuff like that.
Anyway. I recommend checking it out. It is a basic story but I love how it is told and how they get your mind rolling on things. Reminds me of the days I studied Theatre.

Anyway, So I had planned to share my letter to the Muppet Movie makers about why I should be invited to their movie premiere in November but ran out of time for the day. SO instead I will share this video that makes me happy because despite the crazy any events of Mondays or any day the Muppets make me happy and life is still pretty darn good.
Click here for the video since computers are against me today. LOL

Now all I have to do is add a border to the edges, batting, a back, tie it together, then sew up the edges. I am hoping it is easier than it sounds. I am motivated to finish the project by Halloween. Maybe sooner if I take it with me on our vacation to see family in Utah in a few weeks. Either way when it gets done I will be sure to post a final picture of the quilt in all of its glory. At least now a I have a free space inside my closet that is the size of a box. :)

I love Zombies, especially comedies. This one is one of the best comedies/zombie/scary/awesome movies ever. Like most of the above movies I have watched it many many times and have yet to tire of it. Love the character, the actors, the story, and the message at the end.
