For Easter, WC got me a stuffed animal. It's a cute, lavender bunny and
I've been pondering about what to name it. Names are very important.
What you name your pets, stuffed animals, cars, electrical equipment or
body parts says a lot about you. I like unusual names.
Adric the guinea pig is named after a character on an old British show
I used to watch, Dr. Who. There is no resemblance between the Dr. Who
character and my friend the guinea pig, I just thought the name was unique.
Pepé the Pound Puppy isn't named after anyone. Pepé
is so old that I can't remember why I named him that. :)
The Pepé Story
And now we come to the purple bunny. I've decided on Da-ya.
You say: "What kind of stupid name is that?"
cheri says: "Shut up and listen to my story."
Remember the movie
The Holy Grail by Monty Python?
My favorite part is the bunny scene...
The quest has lead King Authur and the Knights of the Round Table
to a cave where they can find information about the Holy Grail.
But the cave is guarded by a monster. They are all staring down into
the cave when the monster emerges: a cute little white rabbit. King
Authur and his Knights go down to kill the bunny. The bunny attacks!
Jumping around! Ripping out throats! Blood Dripping! Yay!
Half the knights are killed before King Authur orders the retreat.
"Run Away! Run Away!" In the end, of course, they kill the bunny with
the Holy Hand Granade of Antioch.
Anyway. Da-ya. The bunny moster in Grail doesn't have a name, but
at one point Tim the Enchanter says: "Death awaits you all, with nasty, big pointy
teeth!" That's my favorite quote from the movie, and that's where
Da-ya comes from: Death awaits you all.
You say: "That's dumb."
cheri says: "Shut up."
