Quote o' the Moment - Flint Knives

"When someone says to me, 'My Granny brought me into the Craft and taught me all I know,' it is a bit like saying, 'I've started a new line of flint knives in my cutler's shop.' The first question I always ask is, 'Surely you've got beyond that?'"

I like colonial-era (and older) professions that became last names, Cutler among them.

Others high in the running: Fletcher, Tanner, Turner, Carpenter, Baker, and Chandler.

Last name you don't see so much of: Prostituter.

Did you ever read the script I wrote for Haven's screenwriting class? Because it involved a character named Tanner, whom another character referred to as "a medieval profession."

It was actually quite good. We should produce it.

WV = impod. Like an iPod, 'cept different.

Best last names I've seen:

Steelhammer and Swords.

Knowing people of both names too, they're cool.


stoplato - the range of vocal talent no one wants to hear.

Cooper is awesome, too. And I'll take swords for $200, Alex.

That's my maiden name, hon. Imagine how irritated I was to have to lose it to a married surname. I chose to in the efforts of trying to keep the kids and people who dealt with them less confused...

but really....after his dad and granddad pass...i think i'll make him change his to mine instead. :D
