Naming things

Matty & I are having a discussion about the name of his computer. He swears that he offered up an opportunity for people to contribute a name for it. I swear he did not because if he had I would've killed him with name suggestions. And how do I know that I would've done this? Because I LOVE naming things. My computer - Sampson (for power and strength). My MP3 Player - Pip (because that's cute and musical sounding). Old beloved bronco - Ben (manly bronco, manly simple name). Old truck I drove in high school - Bessie (Something about a cow and being reliable, I was 16 it made sense then.) Old computer that V currently has - Jakob (I like that name). Older still apple computer housed in storage in basement - Zelma (after my very 1st landlord my first summer in Alaska during college). Michelle & Janel's spider plant in college - Simon. (They had a name our plant thing. I think I contributed the bulk of the names they had to choose from.) I am that dork, that's how I know there was no opportunity.

I believe that I also would have participated.

Well, then, bring it. Send me your suggestions and if there's one that just stands out we'll have a great re-christening ceremony for the laptop. Okay?

Damn spammers.

I think its current name Humphrey (or is it Humphries) does not accurately represent what little ibook is. That's a fat old man's name, not sleek little toy's name. It should be something like Apollo or... I'll come up with better ones. :)

Eh. I am already bored with this. Just call it Emmanuel Lewis.
