The timing is right, at least.
Doctor Who has ended its run in time for … Star Wars.
In case you hadn’t heard, they’re making a new Star Wars movie. You’d think that would have made the news, right? Well, they are. And it’s coming out next week or something. Here’s the trailer. Sort of.
I’m still not sure if I’m going to go to a theater and see it. Especially since it leaked that Kylo Ren is really Jar Jar underneath the getup. So, I’m still wavering on going.
Last month, I saw a lot of Tricolor overlays all over social media. So, where are the Old Glory overlays on Facebook and such?
In case you missed it, Harvey and Anonymiss are tying the knot. Oh, and they’re getting married. Go to Harvey’s announcement and leave your wishes there.
Which means that Anonymiss might change her name.
After all, there is precedent all over the place. When a major change of some kind occurs in life, that may impact the name by which someone is known, whether it be a legal name, or simply a common name, nickname, or title.
Prince Albert of York became King George VI of the United Kingdom. The Cincinnati Red Stockings are today the Atlanta Braves. Jefferson Airplane is now Starship. I Dream Of Jeannie‘s Captain Nelson was later Major Nelson. In Doctor Who, Melody Pond is known as River Song and The Master is now The Mistress (Missy).
But, what about Anonymiss? Does she become “Anonymrs?” How do we address her? Give it your best shot. Keep in mind, Harvey has a great sense of humor, but he also carries a whopping big punch. Be clever, but be good.
Issued by President George Washington, at the request of Congress, on October 3, 1789
By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.
Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and—Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”
Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favor, able interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted; for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.
And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech Him to pardon our national and other trangressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.
Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.
