You’reNotHelping.com

I phoned my father this evening to get his input on the new blog name options.

My father is a genius when it comes to naming stuff. One of his most famous naming sessions ended up in an episode of .  When he named the 6 “friendly bear” pups after food to remind them of their place — Meatloaf, Pork Pie, Salami, Pepperoni, Sausage, and King Miq (which is spelled wrong but means “dog”).

So I was very excited when he answered the phone and proudly informed me that he had been ashore last night and had already checked out my blog – “well not that evil one, but the good one, cheapeats. You haven’t posted anything since March – Sharp UP!”

“Great,” I thought, “he’ll already know about this naming thing and can tell me which one he likes.” I asked if he’d read the post about renaming my personal blog.  “What ‘personal’ blog? I didn’t even know about another blog, just cheapeats and that evil one.”  (By  which he means TheApprenticeBlog.com)

I pointed out that I’ve told him about this blog a number of times.  He pointed out that he’s had a stroke, “that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.”  He uses it for everything these days, “I’ve had a stroke you know” followed by a devious chuckle.

I wasn’t getting anywhere, so I figured I’d just read him the posting and the comments, then ask for his input.

Well, I didn’t get more than a couple of words out before things starting going downhill rapidly.  After 2 hours of cellular silliness, you can see the results of his input below the fold.

  • YoureNotHelping.com
  • GingersnapCottage.com
  • sparklinglemon.com – which he didn’t like, but it all went down hill from here
  • killeregg.com – dad really likes this but he stole it from a band he knew years ago
  • ItsAGoodThought.com
  • ISuckAtThis.com
  • IWasDistracted.com
  • OldFartIdentificationCard.com
  • JustDithering.com
  • AMothJustWentByMyEar.com
  • IBetYouThisOneIsntUsed.com
  • MostIrksome.com
  • ThisIsMostIrksome.com
  • WhatsTheNameOfThisBlog.com
  • BeforeIWasSoRudelyInterupted.com
  • TheOtherPoorBastards.com
  • ImTryingVery.com

Interestingly enough these other ones are also available, which surprised us both:

  • SeriouslyNaughty.com
  • IAmCompletelyScrewed.com

“You’re not helping,” I said finally.
“I’ve had a stroke you know”
“ARGH!”
