For my brother

So that you can stop asking me what fae actually means and why I named this site fae mom or faemom.

And you know what?  It’s actually in the dictionary as:


a device consisting of a container of fuel and two explosive charges; the first charge bursts open the fuel container at a predetermined height and spreads the fuel in a cloud that mixes with atmospheric oxygen; the second charge detonates the cloud which creates an enormous blast wave and incinerates whatever is below


Oh, that’s awesome.  That’s not what I thought fae meant.  My non-reading brother actually got me on this.  So now I’m determined to find a real definition of fae.

But just so we’re all clear on what I thought was the definition.  I believed that fae was a more classic term for faery, and that it also meant the strange, the weird.  Since I am a little strange and weird and I am also a mom, I figured my site would be Fae Mom or faemom. 

But let me let you in on a characteristic quirk of mine.  I hate not knowing something.  I can handle secrets, but I can’t handle not understanding information.  If I don’t know a word, I’ll go look it up.  If I don’t know who that person is, I’ll ask.  Hell, my roommate’s favorite game was “ask roommie what happened in this certain year.”  As I once was a history buff, I would think, not remember, and go online to find out.  She had a sick twisted humor.

So NOW I plan to find out the true definition of fae.

Stupid, smart ass little brother.
