Since it was such big news, there are already "In memory of the great quake" jokes and photographs floating around. In fact, Barry emailed me one today which made me spit a little on my computer screen from laughing. Here it is:
|No, we'll never forget. The pain that lawn chair must have faced when it was so violently shaken to the ground.|
So, since we're faced with this teeny dilemma, I went and bought one of those baby name books. The one that has 40,001 baby names in it. I guess the extra "1" really makes all the difference because 40,000 names wouldn't have been enough to look through.
Well, let me just say, after browsing through this book about 39,000 of the names are just pure shit. They are. I'm not talking about the ones that are foreign names, but the ones that are just purely made up. Let me share a few with you. Here are the names and the attached definition given by the book.
Limo-- (invented) from the word limousine; sporty. (Because we all want to name our baby after something that teenage girls lose their virginity in on prom night, right?)
Karbie--(American) energetic. (Well, I guess you'd have to be energetic with that name because your baby will spend plenty of time running from bullies on the playground. Oh and it makes me think of Arby's and then I start craving a roast beef sandwich. Did I mention I'm starving?)
J-Nyl--(American) flirtatious. (Um, What?)
Jacquet (invented)--form of Jackett. (Jackett?)
Barcie--(American) sassy. (Makes me wanna Barfie...hehe).
Alright, that's all I'll share for now since as I mentioned there are about 39,000 of them.
If there are any Barcies, Jacquets, J-Nyls, Karbies or Limos reading this, please don't be offended and I'm sure they are lovely names on you.
