future childrens’ names

February 13, 2008

Scott and I have been reading through the Bible in a year on the way to work each morning. (It’s a highlight of my day to carpool with my man!)

We’re in Genesis right now and have laughed pretty hard at some of the names.

I laugh even harder at the way Scott pronounces them, like his mother tongue is Arabic or something.

When reading Genesis 5, we came upon the name Mahalalel, Scott called out like a Middle-Eastern father, “Mahalalel! Mahalalel! Come for dinner!”

Today, we read about Jacob and Esau — and the lesson about how to take lying to a whole ‘nother level — in Genesis 27. We’re reading a Bible that puts everything chronologically, so it puts Genesis and Chronicles together, it took us to 1 Chronicles 1 where we found another great name:

Oholibamah.

No, I’m not kidding you.

“Mahalalel, Oholibamah, and Steve! Come down for dinner!” Scott says laughing.

I think we’ve landed on our kids’ names.


angie bring is expiring

January 30, 2008

Got this in an e-mail a few days ago.

Ok, so I’m not expiring, but my Web domain name is…on April 23, 2008.

That’s 3 days after the wedding. Huh. A tad ironic, I’d say.

Stay tuned for scottandangie.org.

the b list of food products

100_grand_image.jpg

As I munched on a kid-sized 100 Grand this afternoon (chocolate is a vegetable, right?), I got a little sad.

You don’t hear much about 100 Grands these days. Or Baby Ruths. Or Mr. Goodbars.

Then, I started thinking about the sodas that are always on sale: 7-Up, A&W Root Beer and Shasta.

It’s like they’re crying out for help; for a second chance. “I’m a good product! Don’t punish me for not having the marketing money my peers do.”

I grieve especially for 7-Up. I mean, how do you recover an image once you’ve been associated for helping upset tummies feel better?


colds and jerry seinfeld

August 31, 2007

I have a cold. Maybe that’s why Jerry’s especially funny today:

We all think we’re experts on our own bodies. I was in the drug store the other day trying to get a cold medication. Did you ever try to pick one of these out? Not easy. There’s an entire wall of products that you need. You stand there going, “Well, this one is quick-acting but this is long-lasting…Which is more important, the present or the future?”

It’s 2007, I’m thinking I should be able to spout my symptoms into a little drive-thru speaker and get out a personalized prescription:

“Well, it’s not so much a stuffy head as a crusty nose that’s tender to the touch. My lips are dry but that’s probably from the hours of breathing through my mouth as my nose is on strike. No headache, no cough, no sore throat. Pretty much just the nose. Oh, and the fact that I have less energy than that cow that jumped over the moon. I mean, she’s gotta bed one tired Bessie.”


the angie font

August 15, 2007

My boss, Jason, gave me the head’s up that I now have my very own Angie font. And for a measly $186.

But how can you put a price tag on being immortalized like this?


matt damon gets fit with jazzercise…or maybe not

August 7, 2007

On page 15 of People from August 15th, the photo caption says:

“Matt Damon laughs it up with the women in his life — wife Luciana and mom Nancy Carlsson-Paige — at the premiere of The Bourne Ultimatum. When asked how he got in shape for the action flick, Damon jokingly replied, “Jazzercising.”

I saw the movie over the weekend and look forward to jumping from building to building now that I know my beloved Jazzercise was his secret. LOL

What’s a better way to lighten up the somber mood at the Baggage Claim? (One of the tags says “Open with caution: dirty laundry inside”)

Oh, the inventions that I never made but should have. Buy me a pack for Christmas.
