It's A Corona Night

The shoe that fits one
person pinches another;
there is no recipe for living
that suits all cases.
~~Carl Gustav Jung~~

Today was one of the longest days I have had in a while. We had that mandatory work party and this time they did not even offer us dinner. We have been having work parties for the last 8 years and food has always been supplied. What is up with that? I was so tired and sleepy at one point I had to get up to go to the mail room to wake up. I kep looking at the clock and we had an hour more to go. These shoes trudged on.

I broke down today and had the forbidden Starbucks Java Chip Frappuccino. I have not had one since I last blogged about it. I did good. Wow was it gooooood! No more. I must stop there and not get into the daily Starbucks ritual.

I was listening to the news and heard a blurb about people naming their male children ESPN after the tv station ESPN. Come on people ! Be just a little original. I did a GOOGLE search and there are several kids named ESPN. Poor things! What the HELL were those parents thinking? Your name needs to be one that will do you some good inthe work world later on..a name needs to have a little dignity.

Associated Press
PAMPA, Texas -- A Texas couple who named their son ESPN after
the cable sports network will soon be getting a visit from the
toddler's namesake.

An ESPN film crew is coming to this Panhandle town next month to
interview the family of 2-year-old ESPN Malachi McCall for a feature
on several children around the country named after the network.

ESPN (pronounced Espen) McCall is one of at least three children in
the United States known to be named for the sports network. A couple
in Corpus Christi named their son Espn Curiel in 2000, the same year
Espen Blondeel was born in Michigan.

ESPN spokesman Dave Nagle said the feature will air Sept. 6 as part
of a two-hour special celebrating the network's 25th anniversary.
The special focuses on the company's history, growth and impact.

"We don't have viewers. We have fans," Nagle said Saturday. "And
I guess there's no better testament than when someone names
their child after your product. It just shows the bond we have
with people."

Rebecca and Michael McCall said their son's name started as a
joke after they heard on the radio about another couple
naming their son "Espen."

"He looked at me and said, 'That's a cool name,'" Rebecca McCall
said in Saturday's editions of the Amarillo Globe-News.

It has been a Corona night! One bottle and all is better in the world.
