Friday Happy Hour: Naming Streets & Naming Babies

Original image

1. Last year, we had a good time sharing our local strangely named streets. When I heard that a Hollywood intersection was just renamed "Larry King Square," I started to wonder about other bustling thoroughfares dedicated to people. (I was bored, I guess.) Do any of your area roads double as asphalt tributes to unexpected celebrities?

2. I'm working on a quiz with the straightforward title "Which Book Sold More Copies?" I've got 10 or 12 good pairings, but if you have a suggestion for two books that would make a great addition, I'd love to hear it, and will credit you (and, if you have one, your website or blog) on the results page.

Two examples: Living History by Hillary Clinton vs. My Life, by Bill Clinton; The Rules vs. He's Just Not That Into You.

3. I've been doing a whole lot of dog walking this summer, which has me on an audiobook kick. A bunch of you offered up book suggestions in the comments under our summer reading list. Anyone have any audiobook recommendations?


4. As Stacy pointed out on Tuesday, my wife could go into labor at any time. While we're fairly sure we're set on names, any last-minute suggestions for girl names would be appreciated. (We don't know the sex, but if it's a boy we've got it covered.)

Enjoy your weekends!

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
