    I love the name Tobias! A favorite character of mine had the name in a book series I loved as a kid. "Animorphs". Anybody read those?

    The only unusual name I've thought of for a hypothetical child is Nova. It probably comes across as very Hippy to other people, I just love the sound of it. We'll worry about it when it's relevant to our life situation :-P.

    Hmm... I forgot.
    I suppose my sons middle name is a bit odd. Lane.
    But not so odd that I've never heard it as a guys name before.

    Husband kind of proposed, the night before the wedding while we were laying in bed together... when I asked him if he ever planned on actually asking me to marry him. His first response to that question, "Why? We're doing it tomorrow."
    So romantic.
    Wouldn't really have him any other way.

    We'd been married a year and a half when husband said 'today was the day I was going to ask you to marry me'. Yeah, he can be a bit slow to embrace change!

    As far as the crunchy morning cereal thingy, toast some coconut flakes in the oven. They are great as a cereal substitute with milk/cream/coconut milk!

    Names. Mine is Kellie with an I-E. My mother has mis-spelled it (and she was the one who chose this spelling!), My brother and aunt have gotten it wrong. My nephew's wife's sister always mis-spells it on Facebook even though my name is right there in front of her!! Show some respect people and at least TRY to get it right!
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    Ha! I haven't thought about Animorphs in forever! They were a bit below my reading level when they came out, but that didn't stop me

    There's nothing wrong with the name Rafe. Just watch Crossfire Trail with Tom Selleck and tell me it's not hot *says drssgchic who is now a puddle on the floor thinking about it*

    Geek and I keep tossing around historical names, both in science and in the ancient world. He loves Tesla and his works, so Nikolai wasn't too far a stretch. The kid can go by any of the same nicknames as "Nicholas." I'd love to have the middle name be Maxwell (named for both my father, Max, and the scientist) or Julius.
    Eris is the Greek minor goddess of chaos. Lenore is a play on the family female middle name (Lynn) and a reference to Edgar Allan Poe. We've also tossed around Marie for a middle name (Marie Curie.)
    Of course, any of those names mean they won't be able to find personalized stuff and will hafta listen to/ see it butchered by everyone. Welcome to earth, prospective kid.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    Um, maybe it's just because I do believe names have to do with who we are- but are you sure you want to name a little girl after the goddess of chaos? I mean, isn't that adding fuel to the fire?

    She would be my child. Chaos is inevitable. Besides, I can't get away with Wednesday.
