Yesterday’s blog may seem a bit maudlin, but there are some days when what I’m eating for lunch just isn’t important.
John Ritter passed away last night due to a heart problem. What a shame…he was just climbing back on top with the 8 simple rules..” show. Besides Jack Tripper, I’ll always remember him as being the nicest of all of the pompous stars we saw at the ABC Primetime Preview next year.
And as a sign of the change in seasons, the vanilla milk is back in our vending machine. It’s vanilla in fall/winter, strawberry in spring/summer.
Work docket: Waiting for some ads to convert for hot properties. Trying Damon’s way to do it — should save time. I have some more ad stuff to do.
Lunch: Smart Ones Chicken Enchildada — which is sitting on my kitchen counter. D’oh! I guess I’ll be running to Subway
Afternoon: Take Max for afternoon walk.
Weekend: Going to the Academy of Music tomorrow with Mom, Mom’s friend Marlene, and her son to see Starlight Express. I’ve never been to the Academy of Music, so I’m pretty excited. We have a 4-show package there. The other 3 shows are Urinetown (what a pisser…ha!), Oliver, and Les Miserables. Tomorrow night may go out w/the girls to celebrate my bday. If it doesn’t happen tomorrow night, it’ll be next Friday night.
(checks ads…not converted yet…d’oh!)
And now…the Friday Five!
1. Is the name you have now the same name that’s on your birth certificate? If not, what’s changed?
No, it’s not. I got married and changed my last name thusly.
2. If you could change your name (first, middle and/or last), what would it be?
I never liked the spelling of Ann without an ‘e’ at the end. “Ann” reminds me of “Raggedy Ann.” “Anne” is royal. I do have a faux pornstar/stripper name though. If I were a porn star, I’d like to be named “Cassandra Beach — aka “Sandy Beach.” 😛
3. Why were you named what you were? (Is there a story behind it? Who specifically was responsible for naming you?)
I was named after the legendary actress Kim Novak. When I first saw her, she looked old and I was a bit perplexed…ok…horrifed. Then I realized she used to look like this, and this, and this, and I felt a lot better.
4. Are there any names you really hate or love? What are they and why?
I feel badly for the kids whose parents purposefully give them wacky names or incredibly common names that they spell differently so that the kid will be unique. (C’mon, Caytelynn?) I am totally in love with the name Virginia, though I can’t in my heart, saddle a girl with that name. So I’m stuck on Audrey for now.
5. Is the analysis of your name at kabalarians.com accurate? How or how isn’t it?
Here’s what they say about my name. (Creepy, culty-site if you ask me). I’m in agreement with all but my inability to relax — frequent blog readers know how lazy I can be.
