I can never tell what will make my wife jealous. I am very blessed to have a wife who doesn’t care that I take pictures of pretty girls, often dressed in very little. We talk about stuff I figure other couples would be shocked about. But then she’d get jealous at the strangest stuff.
I’ve been trying to think of a name for my new computer. I’ve had it for weeks and it is still named “Ron Davis’ Computer”. How lame is that?
I tend to name my machines after women. My car is named Shelia. I wanted a similar name for my computer. I also knew it was going to have a Goth feel to it because I’m immersed in hot goth chicks right now.
On our trip this weekend I was listening to a podcast and came up with the name Violet. The podcast was open source sex hosted by Violet Blue. I turned to the Mrs and said “How about Violet for my computer’s name?”
And she gave me the look.
Apparently she didn’t like Violet. “Are you listening to Violet Blue?”
I wasn’t afraid to tell her. She’d listened to Violet’s podcast before and liked it. So I said “Yes”.
“You can’t name your computer after her.”
We ended up discussing it over a couple of days. Where I contended it wasn’t really named after Violet Blue, but rather inspired by her. When I think of Violet, I think of a little girl in a field of flowers. Dressed in black, with pale skin and blond hair. Not much like VB.
But to her it would be “another women contending for my attention”. I think she meant she was more jealous of time spent on the computer than Violet Blue.
I had put forth the name Victoria, but also rejected it because I felt it too hard to type.
Tonight I reconsidered and she approved because she doesn’t know any Victorias. I told her I was naming it after Joel Olsteen’s wife, just to make it a real person.
Then I said she’d have a secret middle name. Which of course was guessed to be Violet. But she approved of it this time.
And it feels very goth. Would make a great goth model name.
