So we’ll wait till it comes around again, and this time with four part harmony and feeling.

Holy shit! The name “Chuck” seems to be popular, according to this article that Jason found. (The percentage of my blog that’s original continues to shrink.) Here’s the most amazing part:

It’s not so much that Chuck is chosen to sound out of style, like Floyd or Wilfred. It sounds immune to style, a steady island of everyman in a river of sophisticates and metrosexuals. It’s such a perfect choice than you can take the inverse of Chuck and find the fashion of the moment. Chuck’s a nickname, therefore formality must be trendy. Chuck’s all hard consonants, so smooth vowel-laden names are all the rage.

“Immune to style, a steady island of everyman.” Yep, that’s me. I’m just not sure that’s a compliment.

The moral to this story? If you’re not trendy, just wait. You will be again. Although it might take 50 years.

The way I quote myself works is not entirely understood.
