Howdy folks! It’s Funny Names Friday 3 hours earlier than usual for me, because I’m sending this to you from Orlando, Florida – where I’ve been visiting for a med school interview!
I’ll have to keep this fairly short because there’s a lot going on tomorrow (pssssst… there’s also a special related announcement at the end of the post) , but I do want you to know that I’ve been documenting the highlights of my trip, and like any good tourist, that has meant compiling all the great funny names I’ve encountered!
Today I traveled through Baltimore, and then to Orlando. The Baltimore airport (absolutely beautiful, by the way), introduced me to this doozy of a business name, and a bald man who later gave me a quizzical look.
Then I arrived in Orlando, and saw some pretty awesome names down there as well:
But before that, I traveled to Cleveland, in Cuyahoga County. Cleveland was named after Moses Cleaveland, and they removed the first “a” in order to typeset the city’s name onto a newspaper title. I visited the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and explore some famous artifacts, including a leather jacket worn by Patty Donahue of The Waitresses, which was honestly my mission in attending the Rock Hall. Call me crazy.
No seriously, call me crazy!
But the highlights, funny names-wise, were:
But wait… there’s more!
It turns out I’m not the only funny names blogger in the Sunshine State right now, and this calls for a summit, of sorts. So tomorrow morning I’m going to be finally meeting (in person) one of my favorite people ever.
Who is it? I’ll give you some hints:
- This person is totally adorbs! (Enough to get me to use the term “adorbs” for the first and only time in my life)
- This person is quickly closing in on becoming the third most prolific poster in BoFN history.
- This person writes an awesome blog about superfluous verbiage!
Can you guess who it is hiding behind this coffee mug?
So tomorrow after my interview, I’ll be making the 2-hour drive out to Sarasota to have dinner with Amb, Shutterbug Sis, and the whole fam-damily! Looking forward to it, and hopefully I’ll also be celebrating an awesome interview day. Then I’ll make the drive back to Orlando and return to San Diego on Saturday to hang out with Arto and a special guest who’s in town for the weekend – Rob. It’ll be a whirlwind tour de force of funny names blogging meetups, and I hope it’s commemorating one of the most successful weeks of my life!
