A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME...

Just when I thought they couldn't get any more creative in the way of lists, quizzes, etc. over yonder on Facebook, they've gone and done it! Do I really have time to be answering these completely useless questions? No. Should I be cleaning something in my house? Yes. Should I be at least thinking (or acting like I'm thinking) about what we're having for dinner? Yes. Am I going to answer these completely useless questions anyway? Um, yeah. I have no will power like that. I found this list while blog-surfing at this site. Here goes:

WHAT'S YOUR REAL NAME?


YOUR REAL NAME:
Lori

2. YOUR GANGSTA NAME: (1st 3 letters of your 1st name plus ' izzle)
Lorizzle (Oooooh I love this! I may have to have my name legally changed!)

3. YOUR DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite color and favorite animal)
Red Dog (Back up Nancy Drew, the Red Dog is on the case!)

4. YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME: (your middle name and street you live on/ or neighborhood if it's a number)
Lynn of the Desert (But I've forgotten my name, because I'm in a coma, and when I wake up I'll have amnesia and my uncle will be my long-lost father...)

5. YOUR STAR WARS NAME: (the first 3 letters of your last name, first 2 letters of your first name
Butlo (Hey, I have a light saber and I'm not afraid to use it. No laughing.)

6. SUPER HERO/ CRIMINAL NAME: ( Your 2nd favorite color and favorite drink)
Pink Margarita (I'm suddenly thirsty...)

7. YOUR IRAQI NAME: (2nd letter of your first name, 3rd letter of your last name, 1st letter of your last name, 2nd letter of your mom's maiden name, 3rd letter of your dad's name, 1st letter of a siblings first name, and last letter of your moms first name) .
Otbecjy (Holy crap, it works!)

8. YOUR WITNESS PROTECTION NAME: (parent's middle names )
Ann Frank (What the....)

9. YOUR GOTH NAME: (black, and the name of one of your pets)
Black Sam (not so much goth as conjuring up images of the South before Lincoln stepped in...)


There's also a funny question game over at Kasey's site, All that is Good, that is hysterical! I'll be doing that one soon, as well! She even has a Mr. Linky (haven't figured that one out yet!) so that you can read all the other funny answers out there!

Thanks for all of your well-wishes, I am feeling a tiny bit better (feels only like I'm trying to suck a smallish lemon through a straw when I breathe now, not a large orange). We're on Spring Break--what's not to love?!


P.S. Spell check had a hay-day with this post!


Here, direct to you from the archives of You Tube, is Shirley Ellis, singing the original Name Game song!


Playing the game with names such as Alice, Dallas, Tucker, Chuck, Buck, Huck, Helen, Bart, Art, Mitch, Rich, Richie, or Maggie results in profanity or rude language. (We've all made that regrettable, embarrassing mistake...)

Hi.
I'm stopping by via SITS to say hello.
Have a great week!

Laura said...

Uh my goth name is either Black pepper or Black munchkin. Both work I think. But I totally agree with you as I should go and finish my laundry :)

Mary said...

Regrettable, embarrassing mistake? Are you kidding? We used to think up all the names that would allow us to say those naughty words without actually swearing. Uh, sounds to me like you put a lot of work into coming up with that list yourself, Lori...

LORI said...

I SHOULD'VE PUT THE DISCLAIMER THAT I ONLY CUT AND PASTED THAT LIST, I DIDN'T GENERATE IT! MINE WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH, MUCH MORE COMPREHENSIVE!!!!

Bee and Rose said...
