Tada..

My new baby:

My beautiful 500GB external hard drive in which I will store all my precious documents/music/pictures/files.

Pocketsized too. How convenient.

Happy me :]

Now, what shall I name him/her?

I recommend: Eugene. *Keeps a straight face*

Stephie said...

I "suggest," Michael, it's "suggest". LOL.

NO WAY. NOT EUGENE.

Think of a more interesting name please?

*Eugene, don't hit me :/

Michael K said...

I like "recommend" better. *still tries to keep straight face*

Stephie said...

Please. another name.

Michael K said...

How about: μικρή τεχνολογία ? It means small technology in Greek!

Stephie said...

Ah! And no names in another language other than english!

*still seeking*

Michael K said...

or extardrive, or Léinehpets. These first word is an abbreviation of external hard drive; the second is a play on your name!

Erin ^_^

Hahah Mike. I need an easier name. Something that's cool, easy to pronounce, and relevant to my external HD's personality. Whoa :p

Eliz: Erin, eh? Not bad, but that's Daryl's little sister's name...

I came up with Weebo (influence of the 1997 film 'Flubber', I know :p).But whaddya think?

Eliz said...

Somehow, Weebo makes me think of spiders... idk why ^_^"

How about Blanco? I think it means white in Spanish...?

Michael K said...

That's cute!

Michael K said...

How 'bout WenDy? WD, get it? Why Erin, Elizabeth?

Stephie said...

I think Weebo's cute :)

Blanco is pretty, but my External HD isn't exactly white.

What do you guys think about Starr? or Shawn?

Eliz said...

It looks white to me... *_*

Starr as in Brenda? Mm...no. I don't think it suits.

I think Shawn is quite nice...though I think that the alternate spelling of "Sean" might be better :)

*blithely cuts and pastes from Wikipedia*
Erin is the name given to the female personification of Ireland. As a given name, Erin is used for both sexes, although, given its origins, it is principally used as a feminine forename.

^_^ Anyways, I've got Ireland on my mind, that's all (The New Policeman is set in Ireland, and is replete with the local folklore :)

Stephie said...

Ugh, no. Not Brenda Starr. I didn't even think of her, though not surprisingly, you did. Hahaaa :D

And well, I don't see my HD coming from Ireland. So...

So, probably Shawn? I don't like 'Sean'. Heh. And I like that 'w' in 'Shawn'.

I don't know >.<

Eliz said...

Brenda Starr is about the only Starr I've ever heard of...-_-"

Actually...the name Shawn originates from Ireland. It's a variation on the Irish name "Sean" which is derived from the name "John" which means "God is gracious" :) We have a book of names so that's how I find out their meanings...(I also double checked it on the Internet ;P)
