Were more of Fëanor's sons named by number? I don't know what their names mean []

Not by number - the Quenya names of the others translate as follows:

Maglor Kanafinwë - Commanding Finwë
Celegorm Turkafinwe - Strong Finwë
Curufin Curufinwe - Skillful Finwë
Caranthir Morifinwe - Dark Finwë
Amrod Pityafinwe - Little Finwë
Amras Telufinwe - Last Finwë

I think that's right anyway.

Those are stupid names. Why would anyone want to name all their children after their father and/or grandfather? []

Nolofinwë and Arafinwë chose much better names for their children. []

I think Finwë did something of the same with his sons.

I guess that Fëanor wanted to stress the fact that Finwë was first and foremost his father, and only secondarily his half-brothers' father. Which could be seen as a bit biased []

Yes, well, ol' Nory was rather selfish and spiteful like that.

Oh, I knew that, but I still think it's stupid. But what do I know? My sister and I share the same prefix in our name as our father. []

I was so unprepared for that job interview.
And I am so underqualified for that job.
They want someone who can do all kinds of things that I've never learned to do.
Video-streaming in powerpoint, creating Adobe documents, nationwide marketing campaigns []
They are so not going to call me back.
[]
I'll never find that job.

Once again, I can't take a shower this morning because there's something wrong with the water system here. And they don't expect the part anytime soon. First thing in the morning would have been good. Sometime yesterday would have been better. "Later today sucks!"

Oh, yuck, no fun not being able to take a shower. I was once at a summer music school that told us to confine our shower time to 5 minutes a day (almost impossible for females, but whatever.) Obviously there were people that ignored that, because then we were told to restrict it down to 2 minutes...that didn't work...and then I woke up one day to NO water. It was like that for a couple of days...no washing hands, no flushing [] , no showers...and no air conditioning (well, there was never any air conditioning. I just added that on to emphasize the no showering part.)

End story. []

What's shakin, everyone?

Now it is a strange thing, but things that are good to have and days that are good to spend are soon told about, and not much to listen to; while things that are uncomfortable, palpitating, and even gruesome, may make a good tale, and take a deal of telling anyway.

Don't say we have come now to the end; White shores are calling.
You and I will meet again.
Across the sea a pale moon rising; the ships have come to carry you home.
And all will turn to silver glass; A light on the water
Grey Ships pass into the West.
