The still-unnamed dog:
The Current List of Dog Names:
Loretta (We could call her Loretty, just like in "Coal Miner's Daughter")
June (A fitting tribute to Mrs. Carter Cash...plus: "Junebug"=cute)
Dolly (Obvs...plus: Dali? Hmm? Play on words?)
Nora (I met Jim Roll’s wife’s cousin (a girl with a firm handshake named Nora) and the name seemed to click)
Daisy (Juliet Low, the founder of the Girl Scouts, was nicknamed Daisy)
Augusta (We could call her Gus)
Pumpernickel (Because "Penny & 'Nickel" sounds sooooo cute)
Sharon (so we can say SHARON!!!! in our best Ozzy voice)
Scarlett (Oh, Miss Scarlett)
Sox (from Boston, DUH!...although, this name indicates that we are more excited about baseball than we really are...)
Wishbone (Benefits: you can call her "Bone", which sounds good, and when she does something silly, you can call her "Boner.")
Hiccup (This is actually quite applicable since she gets the hiccups about twice a day)
Chili (I like this because she shivers when she's outside,
plus Jamie and Tania have a dog named "Beans" so we could have Chili With Beans and Chili Without Beans)
Names I like but we probably won't use:
Babe (Cool Boston baseball reference, but there was a pig called Babe...)
Ruth (See above, but I've got a Grandma named Ruth)
Minnie (I like the Minnie Pearl reference, but Minnie Mouse...
plus people could think we mean "Mini"...it just doesn't sit all the way right)
Yak Ballz (Sigh...If only she were male...)
Morning Milk Whamo! (Is it a dog? Is it a sugar-coated breakfast cereal? You decide)
Greg's Vomit (uh...sorry Jamie, not actually a good name.)
Robert Paulson (Despite the fact that she's a girl, it would be totally funny if when somebody asked the dog's name,
Penny and I just got totally stone-faced and chanted "His Name Is Robert Paulson. His Name Is Robert Paulson.")
Goodness Gracious me, GoldenPalace.com bought that Virgin Mary grilled cheese for $28,000.
What a fucking stupid world we live in...Uh, I mean Praise Jesus!
Here's a double entendre-laden Rainbow TV episode done for a larf...
Rod (to Jane): "Do you want to blow on my pipe while I'm twanging away?"
Jane: "Oh no Rod, I was blowing a lot with Roger last night. But would you like to play with my maracas?"
Zippy: "No, let's just pluck away with our twangers."
Unzip and Listen.
Pretty great commercial for some new kind of gum.
Those Europeans, so wacky.
Footage of Destiny's Child trying to walk and sing at the same time.
One of them is not successful.
U2 rockin' it on a flatbed truck around NYC yesterday.
Thanks Bob "Lava" Moulton
