Baby Nameless

On Peppers countdown we only have one day to have this baby. I'll be surprised if it happens tomorrow.

Every day people ask what we are going to name it. And we don't know. Before Oslo was born we went through all kinds of names. With this one almost nothing comes to either of us.

But here is a short list of our top names we can both agree on.
Boy
1. Hutch Dragon Price Elliot
2. Del M. Elliot
3. Shem Hankrum Elliot
4. Justice Hammer Elliot
5. Cloudy Tamm Elliot
6. Eli Sable Elliot

Girl
1. Blondie Von Della Elliot
2. Trang Cartwright Elliot
3. Mantha Candice Elliot
4. Lori Lavern Elliot
5. Chaste Golden Elliot
6. Ronnie Brayer Elliot

Unisex
1. Clinton/Clintonia Subaru Elliot
2. Viz Fixen Elliot
3. Duo Vanderkemp Elliot
4. Forest Don/Dawn Elliot
5. Runglink Grestallvra Elliot

It'll be one of these.

Some one took my hoodie

I brought my black hoodie to school today
I didn't know it was so
some one else could take it home
I thought it would be another cool night in the city
So I packed my black hoodie
I hung it on its hook
It hung there so alone
I went away for lunch
And some one took it home
I lost my black hoodie at school today
It was a warm night
the moon was full-
and bright
Soon it will be cold again
Some one else may bring my black hoodie to school some day
I hope it finds my hook

This is a poem. It's how I write but not how I write letters or essays. It's how I write poetry. Because sometimes I am a poet. Other times I am a good dancer.

...but not for 2,400 dollars

Sure I would like this shoe...





I have been doing a little shoe shopping lately. It's been something on my list of things to do for, um, two years. Finally, last week I broke down and bought two pair of Clarks. I have been really happy with them. For years I have mostly worn sued skateboarding shoes. It kind of felt like maybe it was time to transition from sued to leather. I was hoping it would still be in a skateboarding shoe but once I started shopping I found out I am hard to shop for.
