Are you pondering what I'm pondering?


The Creation of Foofernarf

When I was in fourth grade, my sister liked saying the word narf! I think she picked it up from Pinky in the TV show Pinky and the Brain. One day I came across the word foof in a word search and thought it'd be cool to put the two words together. But foofnarf sounded awkward, so I added some sounds to make it foofernarfie. Nowadays I usually shorten it to foofernarf because that's simpler.

I also made up the word acklashomanarf, but it's too unwieldy to use often.


I was recently told foofernarfie is a feminine screenname. Do you agree? If you've read to this point, please spare a few moments to /msg me an answer. Thanks.




I got cooled for the first time ever! WOW!! ::does happy dance::
