Hey, remember jeremyandkelly.blogspot.com? How I called them out? Well, Kelly was nice enough to introduce herself (See, it's lovely when you introduce yourself. New friends!) and let me in on her cute blog and I was over there reading one of her posts where she did one of those things where you come up with silly names for yourself by combinging two things. Like your Hippie name is your favorite fruit and an article of clothing you're wearing (so mine would be Banana Pajamas.) You've all see these, right? But one of them was to come up with your TV Weatherman name by combining the last name of your 5th grade teacher with a city starting with the same letter. Which means that my TV Weatherman name would be O'Clock Orlando. Because my 5th grade teacher's name was Tim O'Clock. No joke. He was really tall and looked like Art Garfunkel, complete with the white man afro, and he drove a Karmann Ghia. He holds a special place in my heart for introducing me to The Outsiders and for cheering me up and bandaging my knee when I fell during a heated game of four-square which I subsequently lost.
Incidentally, is anyone up for a four-square tournament? I've got the big rubber ball, the sidewalk chalk and the mad skills. Who's with me?
