Hashtaggery

It's come to my attention that, when you type certain words with high frequency, Blogger automatically adorns your post with custom hashtags of those high-frequency words.  It's probably an algorithm that somebody at Google thought up.

Ordinarily this wouldn't be a problem.  "Cool," I'd think.  "They're making my life easier for me, over at Google."  But my last post (entitled "Science Fair: You Are Entering...") *may* have contained the word "diarrhea" a few too many times for comfort, discretion, or general good-taste, because I just saw the following adornment that I did not (I repeat, DID NOT) personally add to my Google plus post:

#diarrhea

Once I noticed this ill-advised "auto-hashtag," I laughed until I cried.  The end.

Also, on a hopefully unrelated note, P.S., if your name is Sarah V., I am totally on the frickin' edge of my seat to hear what you are thinking of naming your upcoming BABY BOY!  I am also excited to hear what the Hemsworth-Pataky family is naming their sons, but WAY more excited for Sarah.  Yay!

Lol on the #diarrhea hash tag :)

As for baby names, we honestly haven't talked about it. For our birthday's my mom is gonna have our master bedroom painted, and since being pregnant, she said she'd thrown in painting the nursery too. Tony says, "do what you want." Ok. She's also offered to get nursery furniture...my godparents have said they will get a double stroller, should we want one. So I've been looking at these things. I tried to ask Tony his opinion and he says, "it's March, baby isn't coming tomorrow." Or "I don't want to talk about this now, it's not fun for me." So names aren't going to happen for a few more months lol

Ughh, Tony, get with the program! :) Alright, fair enough. Keep me in suspense, then.
