Trying to remember how Photo Booth works…
Oh, right. We just press the button in the middle. This, folks, is my new phone. He/She will be helping blog on-the-go (apparently mobiley isn’t a word) and helping me moderate comments faster! Hooray!
He/She needs a name, however. And I would like to request your help in naming him/her. It’s just so boring to refer to it as “my phone.” And I want him/her to be personalized, to have a gender, to be my friend.
Suggestions thus far: Gigi (since she’s a samsung galaxy s2 skyrocket), my mom suggested naming her after the female astronaut…. but then we couldn’t remember her name, Charles – after my favorite author
That’s all I’ve got so far. Comment with your suggestions and why you think it fits!
I’ll leave that alone for now.
I was in church yesterday – twice, which makes me a super-Christian, obviously – and during the evening service, I kept hearing words that I liked. Maybe you can relate to this, hearing a word and thinking ooooh, yes. I like that one. Because of meaning or sound, or how people never use it.
Some of these words for me are:
authentic – because it means real, and because it makes me think of being in an antique shop or art gallery. (post coming on church with.us about that!)
submerged – because it gives me a picture of coming out of a swimming pool as kid. Being completely soaked, dripping water all over everything while I looked for my towel. Also, it brings back fond memories of vacations and summers spent at the community center pool without a care in the world.
intentional – because it indicates purpose
uncommon – because that’s what I want to be.
I particularly love the last one. Every time someone uses it, I feel my heart pound a little harder, like I know it’s my calling to be uncommon. The word common just has such negative connotations for me, thinking about things that are called common: houseflies, the flu, cold, man, wealth of the bahamas… Other than the commonwealth of the bahamas, those are all pretty undesirable or negative things. Uncommon connotes creativity and ingenuity and innovation.
I think I would like that to describe me. Feel free to use it if it applies.
