    I'm picking up a brand new, 12" PowerBook (w/ superdrive) on Thursday, and I can't wait. Now that I've picked the computer out, I have to decide what to name my new little baby. So...I decided what could be better than enlisting the help of you guys!

    I love greek and roman inpired names like Apollo, Cosmo and Ares; Lord of the Rings; Harry Potter; and Star Wars. And the laptop has to be named after a guy, because I'm a girl. What do you guys think I should name it? Suggest away!

    As a possible "future blood-sucking lawyer," you might want to name it Alberto (after the attorney general) ... it would make Dubya so proud of you. :)

    You will name him George. You should hug him and pet him and squeeze him.
    One of my all-time favorite lines - from an OLD Bugs Bunny cartoon where he goes into a haunted castle & runs into the Snowman.

    Good luck!

    I think you've got two different cartoons mixed up there... the Abominable Snowman lives in the Himalayas/the mountains, while the orange creature with sneakers lives in the haunted castle.

    Just name it Supersexycoolbabysugamacdaddy. That's what we all think of our PowerBooks anyway.

    That's certainly possible.
    Gossamer is the orange creature & does live in the castle.
    Originally, I thought Gossamer was the one who said this but I found a website with sound clips which credited the Abominable Snowman.
    The thing that's confusing me is that I could've sworn the quote was said indoors.
    Thanks for the help!

    You're certainly welcome.

    All of the Abominable Snowman stuff happens outdoors, because Bugs keeps setting up Daffy Duck (putting bunny ears on him, etc.) to be "attacked" by the A.S. Finally, the A.S. ends up wearing a hat, fanning himself, and then melting in the sun.

    Gossamer doesn't speak except to shriek once near the end of the cartoon, IIRC.

    Stephen King alludes to Sneetches in Dark Tower 5: Wolves of the Calla.
    The sneetches are flying metallic balls that hunt things down and then, well explode. Later the main characters find a sneetch that has not exploded after a fight and examine it to find: "Sneetch, Harry Potter Model", so i am not sure if it is from Harry Potter or not.

    my suggestions...

    well first off, my login name comes from Prometheus; not sure if Greek or Roman, but the god that gave man - sorry mankind - fire! PowerBooks are hot in design, power, and just sex appeal.

    Omega Supreme? (thinking of a Transformer character though)

    Han does just ring rather well (funny how Harrison got the role of Han, wonder if he had that as a knickname in grade school?)

    Othello? (Shakespeare, those Roman?)

    Mercury, probably done to death.

    not too creative and just cant think this late; need more sleep for overtime to work so I can buy my 1st real Mac.
