A Rose By Any Other Name Would Be Confusing.

One of my favorite things about Scott is that he is just as silly as I am, if not more so.

Butterneck Toad is my recent nickname for him, but I love the way it rolls off my tongue. It's not meant in any kind of negative way, it's just a random smattering of words squished together.

We have a lot of nicknames in our house. Buster (the Boxer dog) goes by Buster, Buddy, Buddins, Buddins McPhee, B-Dizzle and "Brown Thing".

Stinkerbell (the skunk) goes by Stinkerbell, Stinkbug, Buglet, Tinker, and Stinker-Pie.

Chou (the Ragdoll cat) goes by Chou, Chowder Bisque, Chowder Biscuit, Biscuit, The Biscuit, and Bisky.

Maui (the Siamese cat) goes by Maui, Maui Biscuits, Baby Bisk, and Meowey.

Minx (the black domestic female cat) goes by Minx, Minxie, Minx-Pie, and Pie Pie.

Interestingly, Pie Pie is also something Scott calls me. I've also been known to call Scott "Biscuit", Inky, and Picklewing.

That's hilarious. I applaud scattershot creativity. The same impulse led to me and my sister calling each other "sphincter lilies" in our teens.

YAY for nicknames. That's awesome. I'm a little worried about "pie pie," though. But I think that's just because I'm a closet perv. ;) I can't believe I just admitted that. But I did. So there you have it! hehehehee
