A Rose By Any Other Name...?

Okay. So we've established that my mutant puppy sister is really an alien pod puppy. We'll just leave it at that for a while. She is what she is, and if, some night, she sucks out our brains in the middle of the night, you'll know what happened. I'm just saying....

So on to other things. Ignore that sucking sound... I haven't really talked about it much, but Mom and Dad tend to call both of us by names other than our given names. For example, I don't think I've actually been called 'Fiona' in ages; Mom and Dad always call me 'Fi'. Or 'Fi-bert'. Or 'Bert'. Or 'Fi-sters'. And 'Fi-sters-beasters'. Even 'Fi-Bertonius'. Don't ask me. Mom is weird. I'm also called 'Puddin'head' (apparently too much reading of Mark Twain goes on in this house), 'The Daughter Head' (in tribute to TaiChi - I have assumed the mantle of daughter-headedness), and 'Fi-Brain'.

And all of this is fine with me. As for Abby? She's called all sorts of things, many of which I can even repeat here. She's called 'Scrabby', or 'Scrabs'. Or 'Scrabacus' (like Spartacus - once she's called Scrabacus, then there are usually repetitions of "No, I'm Scrabacus, no I'm Scrabacus"). Sometimes even 'Scrab-apple'. Or 'Bed Hog'. She's also 'Muffinhead'. Certainly 'Monster Tuchus' and 'Lard Tuchus' are thrown about. But the latest is probably the funniest. Mom and Dad have been calling her 'Hippo-bottomus' because she's, well, she's big-boned ah, plump, erm, full-figured.

Hippo-bottomus. HAHAHA!

*ahem*

But here's a visual for you. See my petite rumpus and her, ah, more ample rumpus? Hippo-bottumus indeed!

Heehee.

Um. So. Yeah. We had a great time at The Little Park today (it was super windy, and so we didn't make it to the Park With The Pond).






On a final, kind of unrelated note, Mom is wondering about this freak of nature she saw today. She knows all about Cerebus, the multi-headed dog, but is a little uncertain what sort of beast has one head and two bodies....

I think that monster looks an awful lot like a......

(you guessed it..!)

A HIPPO-BOTTOMUS!!!!!

Heehee. (Sorry. I couldn't resist. Heehee.)

I guess even Dennis couldn't figure out how to help with the alien pod puppy. The monster is definitely also "synchronized staring". As for nicknames, I have one for you after the commment you left me today: the unsympathetics BOL Come on, everybody else fell for it and they're feeling sorry for me. I'll see how I'm going to handle this issue tomorrow on my advice column (evil BOL)

Wow, and I thought we had lots of names! You guys have us totally beat, both in number and creativity!

BTW, mom is still laughing about the whole "check you basement for pods" comment on last weeks' post. She think of it every time she walks down the basement!

Hippobottomus! I love it! Maybe Abby can become a power lifter or something with that broad backside. Unlike the svelte and shapely Fiona.

Yuh, we have nicknames here too and sometimes Momma calls me Dexter! That is just awful, isn't it?

Slobbers,
Mango
