Not To Be Trusted With Knives

{March 20, 2006}   Wanted: New Name For Blog

Well, I still need a new name for my blog. Only Dave has been so kind as to make any suggestions for far (thanks Dave! You win 50,000 points!), but I have a feeling that “David Emerson is a Whore” might become dated a little too quickly (especially if this minority government falls because I have a feeling that old Emerson won’t be elected as a “Tory”, at least not in his current riding). So, in my brainstorming, this is what I’ve come up with so far:

  • The Total Perspective Vortex
  • Tastes Like Burning
  • Never Trust Something That Thinks For Itself If You Can’t See Where It Keeps Its Brain

OK, so that’s not a lot of ideas. Does anyone else have any good ideas?

HMP says:

Hmmm…I don’t know. Here are some random thoughts:

The Simpsons (bet you’ve never heard that before!)

Isaac Hayes sucks his own chocolate salty balls.

Golb, a Blog (and a palindrome!)

My brain is bigger than yours.

Don’t mess with anything that bleeds for 5 days and doesn’t die.

Here are some of mine:

What’s That On Your Shirt?

Fresh From Under the Bed

The Boogeyman Killed Your Family and Then Replaced Them With Exact Duplicates

Touched Dave Last

Thesis Writing Was Hell

Dave says:

When all else fails, I like to look to rap for inspiration. How about:

I May Be Skinny at Times But I’m Phat for the Rhymes.

Baseball bats? I got something for that–It goes bla ka ka kat!

or maybe

Straight Outta Compton, a Crazy Motherfucker Named Beth

Beth says:

Rap, eh? I could always go with my favourite Eminem line:

Back to the lab again, yo

HMP says:

If you choose Jorge’s “Thesis Writing Was Hell”, you wouldn’t have to change your actual blogspot name.

Beth says:

Good thinking, Katie!

My friend Kalev suggested “Postdoc Purgatory”. I told you that Kalev is clever!

Jorge says:

All of the suggestions are good.
So use all of them at the same time and set a record for the longest URL ever!

Jorge says:

If it’s any consolation you made me shoot water out of my nose from me laughing at that.

Courtney-O says:

I hope I’m not too late for this suggestion –

“All That School Wasted – Now I Wish I Were a Stripper”

That was inspired by that new song “I’m in Love with a Stripper”
