Just for Fun

I "borrowed" this little game from my friend Marj, who blogged about it today.  It cracked me up, so I wanted to share and see what everyone comes up with.

Take the name of your first pet(insert your answer here)

Add the name of the road or street you grew up on (insert your answer here)

If you are a woman this would be your stage name.  If you're a guy, this is your drag queen name (never know when you might need it!)

Mine is Speedy Jane!  Speedy was my first hamster.  Such a cute (and yes, speedy) little guy.  He was a tan color.  And he used to get out of his cage and cruise around the house.  AND he sunk his teeth into my finger once and I still (35+ years later) have a scar.

So, there ya go.  Leave a comment with your name so we can all get a laugh!

I didnt grow up anywhere. We were military. My first pet was a Boston Terrier named Rex. The street we lived on when I was born was Juniper. Not much of a ring: Rex Juniper.

Mine sounds more like a stripper, than a stage name! "Misty Oak Glen"

My American Eskimo dog was named Misty, and I grew up on Oak Glen rd!

Cute game....I like it. :)

My name is Lucky Whitewood or Lucky Lancaster - depending on where you consider I grew up.

Wow! I have a set of scars on my finger from my brother's hamster. He bit me and wouldn't let go until we put him under the faucet! (He did live...but I never touched him again!)

Fun post!

I guess "stage name" is the PG version. I've heard different ;)

Mine is Hugo Marilynn. What a terrible name!!! I guess it's really Jenny Marilynn but I don't have actual memories of Jenny. I consider her my mom's cat before I was born. Hugo was really MY first cat. I loved him but doesn't make for a great stage name!

Dandy 126. It sounds like a drink order, doesn't it? Or a stripper in a Sci Fi movie. I don't actually remember the street name I grew up on, but it was definitely a number.

Dandy was my canary and I named him that because he was...well...dandy, of course. *snort*

Tiger McCully.... Tiger, my first kitty, was such a good sport, would let me dress him up in ChattyBaby doll clothes and push him around in a dolly buggy and sleep with me and 20 stuffed animals everynite.
