I'll post more soon.

And the girl from Small Wonder was Vickie. And the Dad on that show was the commentator on the classic Dave Chappelle "Frontline"/White power bit.


Bridget? That's such an old-fashioned name. Why can't you go with a trendier name like Dakota or Marissa? ;-7 :-b


Scary but true:
I know a man named Dakota.


Me too... :-o

Actually his original name was Jimmy, but he changed it to Dakota. :-o


I have a nephew named Dakota. Poor kid. :-o


I tend to think that parents these days over the last couple of decades are trying too hard to come up with original or unique names for their kids that they coincidentally match with the names of some other lads.

A couple of weeks ago I was at Kroger's (supermarket) picking up a few things. While I was checking out the chips trying to figure out what I wanted, this woman said "Madison don't do that!". She was a good 10 feet away or so and I could see she had a little girl with her, so I figured it out and just tried to ignore her. Anyway, the mom kept on with the "Madison this" and "Madison that", so I finally turned to her and said "Would you please shut up and leave me alone?"

Stark wide eyed look of terror from the mother. :-b

So I said something along the lines of: "While I appreciate that you named your daughter after me, I don't need you repeating my name over and over and over again. It's unoriginal and unimaginative people like you that are sending the country down the toilet!".

Still the same look on her face.

So I said something like: "Do I have to spell this out for you? God America has really become dumb. MY name is Madison, so shut the hell up! Do you understand now, or do you have a lack of upbringing problem that's preventing you from being able to concentrate, and need me to repeat it again?"

The look of horror faded and I get this meek little reply of "I'm sorry.....I didn't know that was your name too.".

So I said, "Too? I was named long before your daughter in case you don't realize that fact. Doesn't matter though, just tell her whatever you're telling her and quit repeating my name like it's something special, or something you thought long and hard about and came up with on your own. It isn't. You pulled it out of a book for Christ's sake, so shut up!".

And proceeded to leave.

Parents who constantly refer to their kids by name annoy me. "Jeffry Jeffry Jeffry". :-P Just so happened that I was already annoyed, and in this case it happened to be my name being used, so I let her have it. :-b


This is why you aren't allowed out of the house much correct?


Probably. :-b

I'm just not shy, and I could care less what strangers think about me. I tend to tell people how it is. I saw a mother spank her kid in line at a Taco Bell one day when the kid was being a little brat and wouldn't do as the mother told him. While others stood there with their mouths hanging open, I started clapping to applaud her. :-b ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.

While I agree that the name-repeating thing is extremely annoying (and if I had it my way, children under the age of 12 would never be allowed in public), if I was that woman, I would have laid the smack down on you! It sounds like someone's bitter that their name is now a girl's name :-D

A little bitter at first, but that was a long time ago.

By the way, just for you, I chewed out some lady at Wal-Mart who was using a check card to pay for their stuff a few days ago. ;-D

Big congrats to ya, Pablo! ;-D

Prepare to worry though. My daughters are 3 and 8 months and I'm already worried about boys, driving, and college... :-o :-o

;-D


Just take the advice of Bruce Willis- when the first teenage boy shows up to take out one of your daughters, kill him on the spot to make an example to all the rest.

:-D

Madison neglects to inform people he piledrove the woman through a table, whipped her with barbed wire, smacked her with a steel chair and then bowled her headfirst into the ice cream freezer for a perfect strike to retain his WWE Madison-Naming Rights Title. Rematch at Wrestlemania, live on pay per view! Order now! :*)


Good job Mad. ;-D
