Aaaaaannnd.....we're back!

Isn't if funny how the fates conspire to overtake our schedules? I had every intention of posting the second part of my wrathful vengeance story last week. Now? I'm glad I didn't. Do I really want you to know that I was shitful to a perfectly nice woman who asked me if I'd been saved? That I berated her for asking a question that I perceived to be too personal and none of her business? That because "I have a degree in philosophy and religion, I can debate the veracity of King James' version of the christian bible till next week"? No. No, I don't. So we'll be moving right along to other, more pleasant things.

I've decided that my cast of characters needs new monikers. Piglet and the husband just aren't doing it for me anymore. So, after three seconds hours of contemplation, we have a winner! Piglet will now be referred to by the name I wanted to give him at birth. The husband and I had a deal that he would name a boy and I would name a girl. I lobbied hard to name him Silas. I just love that name. Of course, he would have none of it. Suffice it to say that my son now walks through life with a dogs name. Literally. We have both had dogs in the past with the name that my son now has. It's a perfectly fine human name, it just works equally as well for dogs. So Silas it is, here in my computer, where everything is how I want it.

The Husband, in the interest of alliteration, is Sam. See? Shania, Silas, Sam? All esses. Even SweetieDarlin fits in. My work here is done.

First off, thanks for the de-lurking on my blog. Your comment made my day; I still get that "Wait, people actually read my blog?" feeling when someone comments.

Secondly, I ADORE the name Silas. As in, I wanted to have another kid, just to name him (or her) that. But then I'd have had to raise the thing, and some things aren't worth even a really good name.

I still really liked Piglet. =) Just for the cute factor.

But, don't you just love giving people nicknames? It's one of my favorite things to do. =)

Your husband named your son Rover? No, wait, Spot. ;-)

Let's see: could it be Shep? Sandy? Sinbad? Shimmer? Snoopy? Hope it is nice.

Hey I just saw your comment on Moo's site and wouldn't to give you a hug. Sorry...I've had the phone turned off (and the gas, and the electric...sigh) and it sucks. Here's to hoping all's back to normal soon

I liked piglet too... and Silas reminds me of the albino in The Da Vinci Code. His name was Silas, right?

But I will adjust... your kid will now go from a cute thing with floppy ears to an albino with scary eyes. hee hee. :)

Silas is a great, strong name.

P.S. I wouldn't have appreciated the have you been saved question, either. :-)
