As you know, I am not a mom. Most of my friends are moms. Some have one little one and some max out at four little ones. Tim and I are beyond the point when people ask us when we will have a baby, which is nice. However, I like to think of baby names even if I am no where near having a baby.
Now, to normalize this obsession, I have decided to name a few objects that I hold near and dear to my heart.
I was never one to be creative with car names. For example, my Chevy Celebrity that drove me all over Grand Forks from 1992-2000 was simply named "The Celeb". It was a catchy name. It caught on with the passengers. Well, my simple name tradition continues. We have two cars, "The GOLD" and "The BLUE". I drive "The BLUE" most of the time, however, I will always hold a special place for "The GOLD" since it was my first NEW NEW car.
Whoa...this post is starting to look a little materialistic.
I don't care. I love my crap.
What you are seeing is my very first brand NEW NEW computer that wasn't handed down or something that I had to share with anyone. I could fill it up with whatever I wanted. It is a slick machine and so deserving of it's name, APPLE. I guess Gwyneth and I have the same taste in names.
If you are a long time reader of this blog, you might recall when I had the sidebar attraction, "Obsession of the Week". Well, my rainbow mug was the first obsession. I like this mug for many reasons. First, my friend gave it to me and I like to think of that. Also, it is perfect. It holds the right amount of coffee without it getting cold when I get to the bottom. (I can drink hot liquids mighty fast!) When I open my cupboard to choose a mug, I feel disappointed when I have to use the plain plum colored mugs because MUG is gone. Yes, it's name is MUG. Nice and simple, but I know which mug I mean.
This naming strategy could be a problem. I mean, I wouldn't want to be like my friend who has a girl cat and named her GIRL CAT, GC for short. If I had a son someday, I wouldn't want to name it BOY. I think I can be more creative with my names. I am going to work on this and I will start with a new name for computer. Any suggestions.
