    The Name Game

    I was going through my blog this evening and found this. I thought it might be interesting. I found a few other things too that were fun, but I'll start with this:

    The Name Game

    1. What are your siblings' names? Are your names related by a theme?

    2. What are your pets' names?

    3. Do you give pet/nick names to your car (or other large possessions)?

    4. What meaning does your surname have?

    5. If you could name your own country or island, what would you call it?


    And my answers:

    1. Joe, Mike and Steve, and there's no theme relation to the names.

    2. Lillian, Charlie, Trisket and Yoji

    3. I didn't have a nick name for my car or anything else that wasn't breathing, but since I've had to put out so much money for this car since the accident, I just call it my POS!

    4. My last name (maiden) means "A trade name given to one skilled in the ancient craft of weaving."

    5. The Sultry Islands; Krimpet Cove, Hot Sands @ Sugar & Spice Islands

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
