Name That Vehicle  
So, Chris says I should have a contest, and whoever sends me the best prize gets to name the XTerra. While I kinda like that idea, I think I'd rather have final word on the name, especially since I doubt y'all would send me anything cool anyway. :-P

I never did name the Civic, even though I thought about it several times. It never told me its name, though, so...

For the record, I've decided that the car is more or less a he.

Wait we have to send _you_ a prize? Pass.

No, no, that's just what Chris suggested. I'm asking no such thing, just for suggestions, which I will subsequently ignore, and probably never bother to name it anything.

Well, I'm pretty sure your car won't be named Tristram, Ashley, Orpheus, Blaise, or Siegfried.

I'm just kind of sure that those would not be the names that would emanate from that vehicle you just purchased.

What's wrong with Siegfried?

Yeah! Other than the racing across your (my) head at 3 a.m., that is

Ok. What about Roy?

Rob Roy?

Actually, Siegfried's not so bad-well, none of the names are *bad*--they just wouldn't be what that car would demand to be called. And Siefried, though the name signifies a hero, still seems a little rarified--a little arts-and-culture-y--for that muscular car you've got.

I dunno, Siegfried is very Wagnerian, not to mention everything in German sounds kinda masculine. :)

Of course it's a boy, it's got a tail pipe doesn't it?

Since you will be driving a big evil SUV, I don't want you going all macho, so I think you should name it something like Fuzzy Bunny or Fluffy.

Macho, macho man! I want to be a macho man!

I'm gonna drive it all the way down there to visit, just to use gas! In fact, I'm gonna visit Oregon and Maine on the way, just to make sure I use more!

(Okay, not actually, I have no intention of taking this on a solo road trip anytime soon, probably ever. I'd be better off renting a car, but these days... It's cheaper to fly anyway.)

It's a boy, you say want macho, call it Bull. ;-)

Nah, I think I actually want something properly geeky. It doesn't really need to show off its macho side, it's secure enough.

XTerraBull....the SUV formerly known as Bad Ass. :-D

How geeky do you wanna get? V'Ger! Or just Bob.
