Weekend Update

Well, another weekend is upon us! Hope everyone made it through to Friday relatively unscathed. (I know there were a few close calls there....)

I will be MIA until late afternoon tomorrow -- got another Girl Scout function to go to. Hopefully this one is less hypertension-inducing than the last one! :) I will be back, so save some sangria for me!

An update to the Bad Baby Names post:

I saw, quite possibly, the Worst. Name. Ever. today -- this poor child at my school had on her nametag, so she could get on the proper bus, and the poor mite was named Goh' Norea. Oh. My. God. It was all I could do not to hunt down that mother and shake her senseless. What in holy hell was she thinking? Or, was she *not* thinking at all? The mind boggles...

Catch you guys later tomorrow! Everyone have a good night!

This actually happens far more often than you'd think. Sigh.

This is truly one of the saddest things I have ever read. That poor girl...

Liz, what can you mean "this" happens? Surely not that there are more Gonnorheas in the world? Just astounding.

KLee said...

Yes, I swear by all that is holy that I am NOT making this up. The poor child's name was a bastardized spelling of Gonnorrhea.

The poor, poor thing. The parent responsible for this catasrophe should be hunted down, staked out over an ant hill, and have honey poured over them.

That poor child. And I thought I'd heard some bad names before.
