Vickie, there's just something about Perris Hilton that makes me smile. Please don't tell me you've got a pocket dog too

Me to!

But then you would have to paint it pink and put a pretty crystal Chandy in..............................
Go for it Vickie!



Thanks Donna and Raya for the translation help. I know what you mean about the English language, Donna. And the link for translation is great! Thanks!

Talking

When we tried to import our Burro from Oregon into Canada, some official at the Registrar of Imported Vehicles told is we could not bring it into the country because it was not a trailer. The VIN showed it to be a motorcycle. After some bureaucratic wrangling we convinced them otherwise and now we have our beloved egg, named, of course, Harley.

Our eggs former owner had mentioned the popular British Scifi show "Dr. Who" when we picked him up and from then on it was known as the TARDIS.

WE HAVE A WINNER!!!

Robin, you're not going to believe this: but the HUBBY came up with this just today! And you just know when it's right!

PERRIS BUELLER

Pretty far from girly----but sooooooo us! The poster from the Ferris Bueller movie reads: Leisure Rules and One Man's Struggle to Take it Easy I love the movie and I love this name!

For those of you still pondering a name, here are some ideas:

Lil' Latte, EggSpresso, Sir Gallivant (means: to wander in search of pleasure), RambleEgg (means: to move about at random over large spaces and a play on Scramble egg), Egg van der Drift

My work here is done---I'll hush now!!

I would love to have a name in foreign language that means journey. But so far I have struck out finding it.
If you are not familiar with foreign languages, you can make embarrassing mistakes. Nuance, connotation, denotation and grammar can all trip you. You don't want call your trailer "Bite the Wax Tadpole." To see people who have done this from their language to English, see http://engrishfunny.com/ .

Make sure that you connect with a native speaker - don't trust internet translations.

My girl friend is a full blooded Cree it was her father that named it "moniyaw wâwi" when I told him the Boler was somtimes called an egg camper, we all had a good laugh.

From the day my little 13 footer was delivered to my home I've always seen it as a Marshmallow. So, I put a license plate holder on it that says "My Little Marshmallow".

One day my little Nephew said that I should name my Scamp. I told him I'm not in the habit of naming my vehicles but he could if he liked. Only one condition, it had to be something that would go with the My Little Marshmallow.

He came up with "Puff" as marshmallows are puffy. So Puff it was. I immediately ordered decals and placed them front and rear on the Scamp. My Nephew was so pleased and to this day just bursts with joy when I visit. He still takes his friends out to show them "his" Puff.
