Friday Five: What's in a Name?

Thanks to RevHRod for this week's Friday Five!
  1. So how did you come up with your blogging name? And/or the name of your blog? My blog and I are named for my dear red heeler, Zorra, who's been gone nearly three years now. I used to tell the Scientist that if we ever had a place in the country I'd like to call it Red Heeler Ranch. I think this cyber-country place is as close as I'll ever come!
  2. Are there any code names or secret identities in your blog? Any stories there? Just my wonderful Scientist (Happy anniversary, sweetheart!). He really is a scientist, and so far I haven't been able to think of a better pseudonym for him (his suggestion is "Finger of the Illuminati").
  3. What are some blog titles that you just love? For their cleverness, drama, or sheer, crazy fun? I love the title of RevHRod's blog, "You don't have to listen. I just like to talk." And isn't that what blogging is all about?
  4. What three blogs are you devoted to? Other than the RevGalBlogPals blog of course! As I mentioned recently, I've followed Rob Rummel-Hudson's chronicles of his daughter Schuyler for several years now. Recently I've been checking in fairly often with some of my new Houston Chowhound buddies, especially neverfull and Anonymous Eater.
  5. Who introduced you to the world of blogging and why? That would be my friend QG, who thought my blogging would be a great idea...and kept telling me so, until I agreed!
Bonus question: Have you ever met any of your blogging friends? Where are some of the places you've met these fun folks?
I met an outstanding group of blogging friends last spring on a great big boat. May we all be together again (along with many more RGBP's) next spring for Big Event 2.0! In the meantime, Amy C. (soul and culture) and I plan to meet about two weeks from now, in Santa Fe!

great play - i grew up with everyone having blue heelers and had never seen or heard of a red heeler until about two years ago - it was the cutest puppy!!

You will have a lovely time with Amy C. Wonderboy and I surely did! Give her a hug for us.

I SO HOPE to be at the next big event. Not real likely, but one never knows...

RevHRod said...

Hello, hello! That was a fun boat trip! I love the Scientist's suggestion for his own name. Made me laugh out loud!

I followed your link to Zorra's story. I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to learn about your girl.

Aren't you glad you listened to me? Look where's it's led us!

Love, QG

PS. Good to see you and the Scientist last night!

Santa Fe in less than two weeks. Wow. Looking forward to it...

Songbird said...

I love revhrod's title, too!! And yours. I want to visit the mythical ranch.

Kievas said...

Maybe you'll get your ranch some day!

Jan said...

So glad you played. You always remind me of MY husband when you call yours the "scientist." That's a nice connection. Someday we'll meet in this big state we live in!

Princess of Everything (and then some) said...

I LOVED the day that I spent in Santa Fe! I went to the best paper store right off of the square. Even if you are not into paper like me, you have to go and look. It is awesome!!

I want to meet you!
