Some Random Tuesday (name-dropping) Fun
One of my very favorite t.v. shows is "Psych" (in fact, it appears that a marathon came on this weekend because I have like ten episodes DVR-ed; I think I know what I'll be doing while I fold up this mountain of clean clothes!), and one of the best parts of every episode is when Shawn introduces himself and his friend/detective partner, Gus.
Some of my favorites have been:
"My name is Shawn Spencer, and this is Lavendar McGrooms."
"My name is Shawn Spencer, and this is...
"Gus 'T.T' Showbiz."
"Dequan 'Smallpox' Randolph."
"Burton 'Oil Can' Guster."
"Weepy Boy Santos."
"Gus 'Sillypants' Jackson."
"my personal candy striper, Knick Knack."
Yeah, yeah...if you don't watch the show...you probably don't quite get the jokes. ("I guess you had to be there.") If you don't watch the show...you should. It's hilarious and is guaranteed to make me laugh out loud numerous times during the hour!
(seriously...go HERE to watch a randomly-selected, HI-larious scene from the show.)
Which brings me to my Random Tuesday fun for the day.
The first Random Tuesday question for you is this:
* Are you an Out Loud Laugher?
(Gary and I came up years ago with a new method of demarcation for the world. The world is basically divided up into two types of people--Inside Laughers, and Out Loud Laughers. When we met, it became apparent that Gary was an IL and I was an OLL. I laugh out loud, very loudly and with wild abandon. Gary is more of a "that's really funny, but I'm keeping it to myself" sort of person. We have learned, though, that another aspect to this rule is that Inside Laughters can take on the traits of Out Loud Laughers as years go by, because Gary does let one loose every once in a while...if it's really funny!)
The second part of Random Tuesday is this fun little name generator (you may have done this one before, but it's pretty much guaranteed to make you laugh out loud, which makes it worth doing again...unless, of course, you are in Inside Laugher):
1. Your Real Name: Cheryl
2. Your gangsta name (for three letters plus izzle): Che-izzle
3. Your detective name (favorite color and favorite animal): Yellow Tiger
4. Your soap opera name (middle name and street you live on): Sloan Arcadia
5. Your Star Wars name (first 3 letter of last name, first 2 of first name): Wrach
6. Your witness protection name (parents' middle names): Joanne David
7. Your porn name (name of of one your first pets, and your mother's maiden name): Ariadne Stuart
8. Your goth name (black and the name of one of your current pets): Black Chit Chat
The third part of Random Tuesday involves this "how much do you know about Cheryl?" question:
* A few weeks ago, I mentioned in another one of these fun random posts, that my girls' names were all inspired by something in pop/literary culture.
I think all of you know that we often call Sydney "Scout," which comes from mine and Gary's very favorite book, To Kill a Mockingbird (in fact, we came this close to actually naming her Scout but thought that having two one-syllable names didn't quite sound right...i.e., Scout Wray).
But does anyone have a clue as to what inspired the names McKenna and Delaney? Anyone who can guess correctly will get a Very Special Shout-Out on my blog very soon!!! (if two people guess them separately, I will dole out two Very Special Shout-outs!)
Some hints to help you out: McKenna's name was inspired by a movie, and Delaney's came from a song.
Okay, there you go. You know the drill. Answer the questions here in my comments section, or join in the fun and continue it over on your blog (just let us know that you're doing it, so we can come visit you!).
Have a wonderful Tuesday!!
