What’s in a Name

20 Nov

6.40 for the good stuff (although it’s Rosie Perez – it’s all good stuff)

Ma: Who were you talking to?

Me: A friend.

Ma: Which one?

Me: Beth.


Me: What?

Ma: Is that her real name? I mean, are you sure?

Me (thinking): Uh-oh, somebody’s been reading about the dangers of online predators again.

Me: Yes, of course that’s her name. Why?

Ma: Well, what kind of name is “Depth?”

    BWAHAHAAHAHA! Don’t worry – my parents (who both have PhDs in history, mind you) still sometimes call the language of the films I watch “Hindu.”

    And FINALLY I have confused someone’s mother! My plans to morph into the ultimate Evil Vestern Voman are beginning to come true!

    I get that a lot but about my name.
    What’s your name?
    No, I meant your first name?
    No, your REAL name!

    It’s quite vexing not to be believed!

    What’s wrong with the name? It’s got, er, depth?

    Well, at least she didn’t think it was ‘debt’

    And HAHA! again at Beth’s ‘Vestern Voman’ and Sue’s comment 😀

    Rosie was a riot as that cop character in Pineapple Express. That’s the first I saw her, and promptly looked her up! 😀

    I must say to DD above that ‘debt’ is what some of us owe you, Amrita, for regularly sharing these Ferg fests! I absolutely enjoyed watching these two happily traipse over eggshells, while engaged in hilarious ‘bawdy’ talk (e.g. toes… painted, chopped – love it!).

    BTW the “Ma-Me” exchange above would make for fine comic-strip material. And oh, speaking of “predators” I watched that Rodrigues homage to all things Arnold just this Friday and, well, mixed feelings, actually. Nothing can even come close to the original Predator. I did like some of the lines though. Particularly, this exchange between Isabelle and Royce (played by Alice Braga and Adrien Brody; he introduces himself to her only toward the movie’s end, when she’s momentarily paralyzed and practically dying — and this after going to hell and back together, for the duration of the movie):

    Isabelle: What happened to you? What made you so fucked up?

    Royce: There is no hunting like the hunting of a man. And those who’ve hunted armed men long enough, and like it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

    Isabelle: That’s pretty poetic. Did you come up with that all by yourself?

    Royce: No, actually. That was Hemingway.
