"NARM Convention Kicks Off."

Ooh! Sounds dangerous! But it's not. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then you are undoubtedly not excited about the fact that there's a new episode of "Six Feet Under" tonight – the second to the last episode of the series. Some key characters are staring in the face of death now. Who knows where the next narm lies?

I'm going to keep saying "narm" a lot, because you wouldn't believe how much traffic I get from people Googling the word "narm." This blog is the highest ranked mention of "narm" that's actually about "Six Feet Under." Some tedious acronyms take the top four spots – the National Association of Recording Merchandisers, the North American Registry of Midwives, National Association of Reunion Managers – but then there's the Althouse blog, ready with some serious narm information.

Anyway, come into the comments and speculate about what is going to happen in the final two episodes. Who'll be the next to narm? If you've actually got any real info, don't reveal it. Stick to pure speculation. But go ahead and reveal info from past episodes. (Don't go in the comments if you're waiting for the DVDs to come out and don't want the old episodes spoiled.)

In the Television Without Pity speculation thread there's a lot of talk about the potential for Brenda to commit suicide. Her giving Maya to Ruth last week could be seen as a classic pre-suicide move.

Ann, this "narm" thing is shameless sitemiter-fluffing! And here I am, aiding and abetting!

It was Colonel Mustard. In the Ballroom. With the Candlestick.

Er, wait, what were we talking about?

Ann,

I don't think that Brenda will commit suicide -- although I do think it's a possibility that Billy will!

The funeral home is totally going to Rico and Vanessa. Keith is going to quit working for that dude (forgive me I forgot his name). David will continue to go crazy. But, hopefully, things will work out for the two of them (I just love their relationship and, especially, the children).

But anyway, off to watch the Sopranos! Enjoy SFU!

I now realize that "enjoy" wasn't quite the right word, as this episode was far from enjoyable. It's time to go crawl back into my hole.

Ha! I read the spoiler thread at TWOP so I won't say anything, other than to echo Ron's sentiments. Such shameless search engine manipulation, Ann! Would you be narming it up if you weren't garnering so many hits from it? At any rate, that's a bit of insight into how you choose your subjects that I could've done without.

That said, I don't really like how "narm" is being casually tossed about. It was the way Nate's brain damage manifested, after all. I suppose I should lighten up, huh?

Joan: TWOP is selling a "narm" T-shirt. It's really too late to preserve the sanctity of the word.
