Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



A Girl Name Contest!

I am trying to decide what name I should have had if I would have been born as a female. I am not planning on making any changes, plumbing or otherwise, this is just a theoretical question that floated through my little brain just now 42 seconds ago. Anyway, for some unknown reason, the first name that popped into my head was "Gwynyth". I would be interested in your suggestions for:

A) What you think my female name should have been
B) How about a middle name for me!
C) What opposite gender name do you think you would have liked for yourself.

Please feel free to leave a comment answering any or aLL of these questions.

How about Latauntuan Marie?
You kind of look like that could be your name, maybe.
Mine would be Janice Beth.

GweenB: I had fun trying to figure out how to pronounce it. There is a customer of my wife named Janice that I tease in a variety of ways. I even gave her a key to our shop a long time ago, of course it doesn't work because it is totaLLy blank, none of those cut toothy sierra-ated bumps. Beth means "House of" and January usuaLLy has some ice, so "Janice" is a good internaLLy consistent name.

Mary Margaret Rita. Or Mary Marguerita for short. It was actually our girl name for a while. Thank God we had all boys, right?

Marianne: Since you are starting to merge names, you could go for Merry Mergerita, or maybe Mermergita, who could be nicknamed M&M. I heard a brief line from George Carlin yesterday, "I contend that if you have just one M&M, you only have an M." which in my deeply saddened state totaLLy cracked me up. Nothing permanent with the saddened, just dealing with a piece of stupidity while grieving the recent loss of someone close.

... yes, aLL boys is probably a good thing. We had aLL boys but would have liked to have had one of each. So we compromised and got a dog.

I think your name should be Pandora, because of all those interesting facts about stuff in your head.

Middle name something simple say Jane then you would be PJB which sort runs of the tongue..... So people would say.... Hay PJB fancy a movie and you could say.... NO

I rather like the name Mercedes myself so that would be me.

Rob: The person who was my best friend about 10 years ago before she moved away had a real name of Dora which she did not like. She went by a name that rhymes with "Jill". It rhymed veRy eXactly, because her name was Jill. There is a city near here named Canyon which isn't in a canyon but near a canyon, and it is caLLed Palo Duro. So the name Pandora de Palo Duro would be somewhat appropriate, since I lived in Canyon while goinkg to school for four years. My friend Jill who is reaLLy a Dora only lived a couple houses south of me, and so we chatted a bunch and cooked and baked things. I had a bread machine back then and would split my loaves of fresh baked bread. The word for bread in Romance languages is something like 'pan', and weLL as the other things we cooked in pans, so Jill would qualify as a Pan Dora.
