Thanksgiving With the 40 Thieves

My husband’s step-father is Al Laddin. No joke. And my mother-in-law’s name? Alicia. They are both ‘Al’ Laddins!

Je m’appel ‘Orgy’

We learn english as a second language here, and the children get to pick their own names (or their teachers pick for them) during their first secondary year.

I have seen “Hymen”, “Lake”, “Peninsula”, “Banana” and “Grape”. But nothing tops “Harem”. One wonders how they came up with those. Sticking a pin randomly into the dictionary seems to help.

They would be better off with conventional names like “John” or “Mary” etc.

Indigo’s a Bit Dark

I know a boy named INDIGO. He was named after a cat that pees everywhere. He lives up the street from me and hangs out naked quite a bit. Indigo seems mad at the world. I wonder why.

Shee’z Deummd!

I read in the local paper recently here in Adelaide, South Australia of a new parent who named her daughter Destynii, perhaps not appreciating the horrible destiny she’s preordaining for her poor daughter.

Then there’s the kid I went to primary school with, Fred Frede (surname pronounced “Freddy”) and a teacher called Mr Weebush. Of course, at around age 9 or 10, we all thought that “Weebush” was just the epitome of intellectual comedy.

As Normal As Possible, I Guess

From the Naples (Fla.) Daily News:

Things are back to normal for little Avigayil Wardein.

The lemonade gal who spent her summer in the spotlight is now living life like any other 7-year-old with a lemonade stand.

And her mother, K.C. Shaw, wants to keep it that way.

“She liked the attention, but now she just looks at it like it’s another day,” Shaw said. “That’s good.”

The Lake Park Elementary School first-grader received national attention after the city of Naples briefly shut down her lemonade stand in June.

An anonymous neighbor called Naples police to complain about the permit-less lemonade stand. Police responded to the call at Abby’s house and told Abby she had to get a city permit. After Shaw complained, city officials waived the $35 permit fee and allowed Abby to reopen the stand.

The lemonade saga quickly received national media attention. People from all over the United States were contacting Abby offering support, money or advice. The grayish-brown-eyed gal received air time on CNN, Fox, MSNBC and Rush Limbaugh’s radio show — even a guest spot on “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

Is Thundercleese Next?

I have a friend who recently moved from here in Australia to the USA (perhaps to be among like-minded wierdos) who called her son Zorak.

And, yes, the Cartoon Network is available here on pay-TV.
