The Blogger Formerly Known As Drea M.

I had been making fun of Sarah Palin for some time before I actually found out what she had named her 600 children.   (‘Track’, ‘Trig’, and ‘Bristol’ being some choice ones.  I knew I should have stuck with that psychology degree.  There’s some serious money to be made.)

But these names paled in comparison to what she wants to name a future, as-yet-unborn child. 

‘Zamboni.’

Yep.  Zaaaaammmm-boni.

Made my day.

Anyway, I’ve been having a field day, telling everyone I’m going to change my name to Zamboni in honour of Sarah Palin. 

Today, I discovered that a fellow blogger has put up 10 bucks – that’s right, 10 whole bucks (albeit Canadian bucks…I kind of would have hoped for a dare from one of our American neighbor bloggers, but still…) for me to actually do it.

And well…I will do absolutely ANYTHING for a cheap laugh.  Let this be a lesson to you all.

*look up – look waaaaay up*

 

UPDATE:   To avoid confusing my readership, I have changed my banner back to its former glory.  However, that does not alter the fact that my true and legal name shall forever remain ‘Zamboni.’

  1. Sigh. I assume a personal cheque will be acceptable? (You realize, this is how Prince started out? It’s a small step till you’re nothing but an indecipherable symbol.) (Remind me NEVER to play truth or dare with you.)

  2. Hahaha, hello Zamboni! (also the name of one of the lesser known Marx brothers) Now Palin will have to choose another name for her kid, like “Buckshot” or “Deer Scat.”

    Will have to keep your cheap-laugh weakness in mind, haha 🙂

  3. This whole thing has me inexplicably pleased. :))

  4. I will throw $20 American if you have a baby by September 30th, 2009 and name it Zamboni. That gives you a month to plan this out. I will also double it if you have twins and let me name the other one. By the way, I always thought it was Zamrbroni so I learned something today. You crazy Canadians.

  5. I hate you, Straight Cash Homey. HATE YOU.

    You haven’t heard the last of this.

  6. I think you spelled Heart incorrectly. It looks like you spelled it as H-A-T-E which says Hate. Might just be the language barrier. Also, please do not read my hockey post. I may not be a fan of your sport but I do like health care and Alex Trabec. As a good will gesture, I will raise my offer to 25 Canadian but the date will have to remain the same.

    I hope you have a Happy New Year.
