Zih-know-bee-uh is the best guess I have on pronunciation. I do it for a living.

So, this is how the conversation with "Zenobia" went:

*Phone ringing*
Some lady: Hello?
Me: Hi is Zenobia available?
*weird sounds then silence*
Me: Hello? .....Hello? .......Hello?
(I'm assuming Zenobia): mmph?
Me: Hi my name is Laura and I'm a volunteer with the Barack Obama campaign. Are you planning on voting in the Texas Primary?
Zenobia: mmph
*silence*
Me: Do you know who you'll be supporting?
Zenobia: mmph
Me: Uummm, ok thank you for your time.
Zenobia: mmph
*click*

Probably thought you were trying to sell something and that's her normal response to telemarketers

I'd say that means he wants Fred Dalton Thompson.

He never even said an actual word. It was just sounds, like he didn't have a tongue or something

I marked him down under "language problem"

He wants Fred Dalton Thompson because FDT is lazy. Similarly, he's too lazy to speak. Or find out that FDT dropped out.

Or vote, probably.

Pfan is right about the pronounciation. Zenobia is Dr. Hikes' first name, from VT.

My school has a very high population of Asian students. When I was recruiting participants for my study, I had so much trouble with east Asian names. I was so worried that I'd mispronounce someone's name and offend them. In fact, I did a few times, and apologized profusely.

I posted new pics on the 2nd to last page of the cat thread, and a story on the last page.

How are you doing?
