Howard K. Stern Really Does Care About Danilynn Even Though She Has a Made Up Name

Reminds me of this woman I used to work with at GOL whose name was "Dwendy." I believe her dad was named Dwight and her mom was Wendy and so when they had this new little girl, they decided to combine their names and forever after curse Dwendy--making teachers think she had a speech impediment. It also reminds me of my stepdad telling a story about how some guy in Chicago wanted to name his newborn daughter "Vagina." The doctors refused. There may have even been a court battle. I read somewhere that children who have non-traditional names have a better sense of self identity. I can relate to this as an Amy whose mom named her Aimee--I have met many Amys but have not heard of many Aimees (except for Aimee Mann and Anouk Aimee). I am an individual, just like everyone else.

Had a very good time in Brooklyn with Liz and Luke. On Saturday, Liz and I went shopping for four hours, ending up at Beacon's Closet and then we met Luke and had dinner at this hole in the wall restaurant that served good pasta and pizza and then went back to hang out with Snake (the fat cat) and watch The Devil Wears Prada. On Sunday, we walked around some more and went back to Beacon's Closet and then to a bar for dinner where I had the best veggie burger ever. We talked about being in youth groups as kids because I want to write a story about a young girl who has a crush on Jesus. Then we went home and worked on the NY Times Sunday crossword and watched Lost Boys of Sudan. I think they were worried that we didn't do enough things, but it was so, so, so good for me to be with them and to laugh and be silly and gossip and people watch. I love Brooklyn though I could never live there because I would feel too anonymous.

Well, we have Buffalo Exchange. That's something.......I didn't find anything at BC this weekend though I tried on about 700 items. Sad!

I'm happy to announce that the results are back and Larry Birkhead is NOT the father of my baby.

i know this is not quite the same thing, but both my granny and Scott's grandmother have HUGE crushes on their parish priests. It's kind of weird (well really weird). they're both widowed, and his grandmother has told me a number of times about the time when the priest kissed her on the cheek after he wished her a merry christmas.

That is why I want to write that story about the girl who has a crush on Jesus. Did you read Lincee's update?
