Potential Names Discussed Tonight for the Baby-Boy-To-Be

  • Galway
  • Wolf
  • Jasper
  • Oliver (pls sir, can I have another)
  • Hubcap (That’s right, ma’am. H-u-b hub, c-a-p cap. Hubcap.)
  • Cowboy
  • Hoyt
  • Thorsten
  • Jefferson
  • Plum Dandy
  • Miles
  • Django

But the #1 name of the evening? Just rolled right off my tongue mid-sentence:
  • Riverbone.

Oh yeah, baby. There wasn’t a last or middle name that Riverbone wasn’t able to mesh with. This was followed by lots of hysterical laughter and then a suggestion of “Floor Pie” (not by me) due to some visuals at Old Town. I guess you had to be there.
(No, no, no. Not MY baby boy to be. Cripes, people. Settle.)

Who writes the ads for Spike TV?

A couple weeks ago I was watching a crapload of CSI reruns so I basically had at least three hours of SpikeTV on every day and they were promoting their big week-end showings of Star Wars. The ads really cracked me up.
I can’t remember, was this one said in a Yoda voice?: Being a bad guy isn’t bad. There is much to be learned.
Han and Leia: If your sister hangs out with your friends, eventually one of them is going to hook up with her.
Too funny!

Faux-Amies*

It is always amusing in French class to watch the “I know too much to look up these words” people get tripped up by what we call *”false cognates” en anglais. I’m hoping for such tonight as one of our vocab words is décevant. Deceiving? No. Disappointing.

I, as you must have known, am an anal-looker-upper. Even when I know that I already know the word in question. I’m always checking to make sure there isn’t also an idiomatic definition I don’t know about. I waste a lot of time that way. But time…well, that’s in surfeit over here.
