Thursday Thoughts

Yesterday I talked about my new shoes and how I was thinking of naming them.

My mom bought me my very first car. It was a 1987 Hyundai Excel that was red, except for the driver's side door which was orange. I named the car Lexington, because I knew I wanted to go to Kentucky. When I chose to go to Ohio State, my car didn't go with my and my sister inherited it. That's when the wheels fell off. Literally. I don't think Lexington was really happy I went to OSU>

What have you named your car, bike, shoes, etc.?

Our Garmin is Missy the Map.
Our SUV is Pepe the Pilot.
Scott's car is Mushu, after Eddie Murphy's character in Mulan. He made us laugh.
Our house is The Best Nest after a children's book with the same name.
My ancient 10 speed from when I was a kid was Speedy. I get it from my parents- they always named their cars. =)
Our first house was Woodsy House and the on in Illinois was The Last Resort.
