names I will consider when I become very rich and purchase a professional sports team

  • the fighting hobos (the inclusion of “fighting” is absolutely imperative here. it’s so much more FIERCE.)
  • the fighting unicorns ( I am picturing a logo somewhere along the lines of lisa frank. perhaps the unicorn would be winking. I don’t know. it’s a possibility.)
  • the fighting narwhals (kristin has suggested a mascot that skewers the other team with his or her tusk)
  • the fighting historical interpreters (for a team in williamsburg specifically)
  • the fighting semi-colons (self-explanatory in its awesomeness)

suggestions? I might just make you a shareholder on my team if I like your name…


blossom v. clarissa

I really liked this post from jezebel taking on the great blossom v. clarissa battle. I was never much of a blossom girl myself, so…

clarissa definitely wins.

I mean, she was so cool! looking back, I can see how young liz’s decorating style was influenced by clarissa’s awesome digs. and remember her totally sweet computer programs and elvis the alligator and all those doc martens?

na-na-nananana…JUST DO IT!

skeleton fiiiiiight!

this still gives me the creeps.

my first dictionary

I don’t know about you, but I love learning the alphabet. I’m almost halfway through!

my first dictionary is an awesomely creepy website created by an awesomely twisted librarian where you can learn a new word each day, you little linguist, you!
