    Not just your computer or your hard drive, but any inanimate object? For instance, if I get my sister's car, my brother and I (who will be sharing it) will rename it the Jawnfinder (though I will call it the $h!tmobile at other times since it's such a crap looking car). Also, through a weird discussion with my father, my brother decided that if he ever runs over a pregnant nun, he will rename it The Hammer of God.

    It doesn't have to be just cars, though; if you have a name for you house, or a specific room in your house, or a couch, or something, post it.

    This has got to be right up there as one of the more strange threads.

    I have two small stuffed dolls. One is the Starbucks holiday penguin from last year, and I call him "Henri". The other is a purple octopus named "Dr. Gerges Duparc".

    A friend lent me her orange blanket which is my favourite blanket in the whole wide world. She calls it "The Wonderful Orangeness", but I call it "that fine blanket".

    I'm thinking of naming the weird-looking fellow in the picture, which I discovered in my bathroom last night behind the toilet.

    You could probably sell that part of the wall off to a biologist for further analysis/extremophile work! Anyone know / ID the variety? Poisonous or ready to cook?

    Might go nice sauteed in wine & garlic, over a steak, Daveman.
    Mmm. "Home Grown".

    Got nuttin'. Except the car. Car's called Cristine.
    or "the silver turd", depending on how nice she's being to me.

    That's not really an inanimate object though is it.

    I was kind of wondering the same thing.

    I live in a basement apartment in an old building, so I make sure to keep up with the mold really well. I guess this time I missed a spot.

    I have a plant called Spike because it's sort of . . . well . . . spiky. My wife named it and gets a bit upset if I refer to it as "the plant" or something like that.

    I have to ask…
    It has to be a pregnant nun?

    My original XBox's controller was called "the one" by me and my friends. I was the only one who liked the big fat version better than the S. It was "the one" controller that stuck out.

    I guess I deserved that...

    Thank you, I think.

    Well, yeah. Nuns can't have sex, so it's almost as though God willed the car to hit the nun. It's not serious, you know. It's just a joke my father came up with as we were driving past a church.

    It's not as bad as it looks. The bathroom hasn't got ventillation, so I have to keep the walls clean. It's my fault that I missed this corner.

    You have got to be kidding me! Why don't we just rename the "Community Discussion" thread "The Wasteland".

    Gee, you really seem to hate my threads recently. Except that none of my community threads have been wastelanded. There's really nothing wrong with the Community Discussion threads, in my opinion. We can't always be speculating about when the Powerbook G5's are coming out, can we?

    Other than calling the TV the boob tube, never gave things names around the house. Never really been any interest in naming things, beyond what they are.

    I like the name for your bookcase and couch along with the "name" for the bed.
