oh oh and you’re mary tyler moore

Oliver? Oden? Ogden? Orlando? Othello? Orville? Odell? Olden? Ollie? Olwen? Omar? Opie?

there are so many reccomendations for the as-yet-unnamed dell, i’m a little overwhelmed. three i have to veto right off– opie (a tall, tall bowler who is constantly asking me out), oliver (is one of sister #2’s cats), and oden (that name of my purple and red dragon that lives next to the cheeseasaurus rex).

i’m leaning towards Ogden. because it makes me sort of grin. but then i have to wait to meet the as-yet-unnamed dell. it might be a girl, which opens up a whole new list. opal? ophelia? olivia? oh my!

Everything the light touches is my kingdom. Well, at least where this website is concerned. There's an about me section if you are so inclined to know things. All the posts were written by me. I have a lot of words.

    Shamelessly stolen off the internet, but offered as a suggestion:

    Orpheus was the son of Calliope. He was the greatest musician and poet of Greek myth, whose songs could charm wild beasts and coax even rocks and trees into movement. He was one of the Argonauts, and when the Argo had to pass the island of the Sirens, it was Orpheus’ music which prevented the crew from being lured to destruction.

    When Orpheus’ wife, Eurydice, was killed by the bite of a serpent, he went down to the underworld to bring her back. His songs were so beautiful that Hades finally agreed to allow Eurydice to return to the world of the living. However, Orpheus had to meet one condition: he must not look back as he was conducting her to the surface. Just before the pair reached the upper world, Orpheus looked back, and Eurydice slipped back into the netherworld once again.

    Orpheus was inconsolable at this second loss of his wife. He spurned the company of women and kept apart from ordinary human activities. A group of Ciconian Maenads, female devotees of Dionysus, came upon him one day as he sat singing beneath a tree. They attacked him, throwing rocks, branches, and anything else that came to hand. However, Orpheus’ music was so beautiful that it charmed even inanimate objects, and the missiles refused to strike him. Finally, the Maenads’ attacked him with their own hands, and tore him to pieces. Orpheus’ head floated down the river, still singing, and came to rest on the isle of Lesbos.

    Tough decision! My computer’s name was Benji. But then I replaced most of his parts with my boyfriend’s old parts from his computer, Zeus. So now I don’t know if I have Zeus or Benji and my boyfriend doesn’t know whether he can still call his computer Zeus! Gah, we’re all such nerds.

    Oceania, oogonia, and oxyopia, each seven letters long, are the shortest five syllable English words.

    Failing those, how about:

    Ozzy Osbourne.

    Onomatopoeia.

    Odoriferous.

    Ogden is a dirty little railroad town in Utah, by the way. I wouldn’t care to name anything of mine after it.
