I do not know where it all began but I have been naming things for quite some time. Often the things I name are alive, but there are times when I name things that aren't alive. The first thing I can remember naming was the first car I bought it was a Pontiac Sunbird sort of teal in color so I named it Tealy.
While in college my roommates and I bought a plant which we decided to name Jerry.
After I moved to Florida I named a three legged lizard - Hack. The hawk that sat in our Jacaranda tree was named Reggie.
Last year Audrey and I found a spider that lived between our window on the staircase and the screen - we named him Peter.
Ryan has a computer that sort of works, the brains work but the screen does not so I have named him Darth Vader.
Last night as I was reading a friend's blog my computer screen went funny and then went blank. All of my efforts to save it were in vain. Ryan tried to come to the rescue but nothing he did seemed to work either. Luckily Ryan is wonderful and so brilliant he had backed up all of our pictures on an online data system called Sugar Sync. I was really sad about it but that is the way technology goes- great the day you bring it home and out of date by the very next morning. I had the computer for four years. Anyway, I decided to try it again this evening, just for fun. It worked! My computer has now earned the name Lazarus.
Like I said I am not sure when I began to name things but I have fun doing it. I do not think tonight will be the last...
