bondage of the wit

So, Greg just decided that tonight's more of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer over Planet Earth: Ice Worlds kind of night. I say, well, either sure beats what we did last night. We agonized last night (and for the better part of a fortnight) about the name for this blog. I know. You're saying, but wait, Greg is a part of this equation: king of puns, winner of wit wars! But, amigos, at times like this, it is a curse...what good is a head full of wit with the inability to put the proverbial rubber to the road and hone it into a workable blog title??? I know that reading this, you're also thinking, so then they came up with PfeiferPfiles?!?! Well, let us assist you in the genius behind this title (with the aid of one of our favorite sites...dictionary.com):

pfile
–noun

1.
a pfolder, cabinet, or other container in which Greg and Noel's cyber papers, letters, etc., are arranged in convenient order for storage or repference.
2.
a collection of Greg and Noel's papers, records, memories, whims, wisdom, parties, photos, mental vomit, etc., arranged in a semi-convenient order

–verb (used with transient)
1. to place in a pfile.
2. to arrange (papers, deets, non-sensical musings) in convenient order for storage, repference, education, entertainment, to please donors (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) and appease family.

-philes
a combining pform meaning “lovers of,” “enthusiasts pfor” that is specified by the initial element: Anglophile; bibliophile; demophile, Pfeiferphile.

pensieve
"I sometimes find, and I am sure you know the feeling, that I simply have too many thoughts and memories crammed into my mind... At these times... I use the Pensieve. One simply siphons the excess thoughts from one's mind, pours them into the basin, and examines them at one's leisure." ~Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

So, you see, enthusiasts, this is actually a title quite up to par with our usual verbal superiority (complex). Thank you for being PfeiferPfiles, we would not have made it this far without you. Definition of "this far" coming in the next cyber edition of the PfeiferPfiles.
