Name Our Boxy Baby

with 18 comments


Yup, that’s right. Tara popped one out, and it’s a next-gen videogame system! Dun dun dunnnnn. I guess the ultrasound lied.

Okay, truth is, I saved up me moneys from published short stories and freelance art gigs and made the big purchase a few days ago. It’s heavenly and amazing and superawesometimetown (not a word). But there’s a problem. As evidence shows, I can’t help but name inanimate objects (Tara says, “Don’t call our baby an inanimate object!”), but I’m struggling to come up with one for the ol’ Xbox 360. I need your help. Some criteria to consider:

  1. It’s a boy.
  2. It’s name cannot be Sam, Samuel, Samwise, Sammy, Sammich, Samamamamamama, or anything else Sam-like.
  3. It does not have to be an actual name. Considering my laptop’s name is Macaroni.

If I lurve your name (lurve is a greater state of love, for those not in the know), you might just get a free drawing out of this. So suggest away, and may your babies be plentiful!

Go go go
Go have a baby
Go have a baby
Baby, baby

  4. Time Warp (TW for short)

    How about some variation of cocaine, since it is so addicting?

    Lucky you gets to play games. I get to clean litter boxes. I will trade you – one cat for one xbox!

  5. Jules. Why? I have no freaking idea. I just know that when I thought of an XBox, the first thing I thought was “Hey. That’s Jules.” (Sure, I could try to justify it through science fiction or pop culture references, but I’d just be making that up after the fact.)

    • Supposedly they fixed the RROD on the newest version of the console! Either way, I got the warranty. 😛

  7. Honeydew. Stare at the X-box logo long enough and you’ll see why.
