I gave NikkiZ her blog name when I was pregnant with her because it is a subtle variation of her real (and very unique) name; with a “Z” on the end. Why do I feel the need to give everyone names with Zs on the end? Who the hell knows. I’m sure when I started blogging it seemed like a good idea. But, if you’ll recall, I also used the word “Ewok” in my first blog url, which is definitely not the model for blog-savy.
NikkiZ has since acquired a few real nicknames that may or may not stick, only time will tell. One is “Bee Bee” and it is derived from the word “Baby” when spoken using any of the many weird voices we feel the need to use when talking to NikkiZ. I also tend to affectionantly call her “Goofy” because she does goofy things (duh). I don’t know why I fall back on that name for her as often as I do – but it just seems so appropriate so many times.
I kinda wish I had thought about “LilZ” more than I did because the taller he gets? The sillier it feels. I may have to find a more grown-up name to call him, like “QuicklySurpassingZootInHeightAndInSmartsZ” ‘Cause you got to have the “Z” on the end. Of course – he really likes the name so I doubt he’d want me to change it.
MrZ is starting his own web project in the next several months (not a blog, don’t get too excited) and he’ll be using his real name on the site. Since he’ll want me to pimp it out when it comes time, many of you will eventually learn his real name (and my last name – for that matter). He and I were talking and wondering if any of you have an idea as to what his name is? If you do – throw it in the comment section. If anyone guesses correctly we’ll give you eleventy trajillion dollars. (Not really.) For those of you who know it already? No guessing.
And bonus points if you get the name right AND the spelling correct. If there is one thing that bugs the crap out of my husband? Is having his name spelled wrong.
