Naming My First Baby

I took my new baby (Garmin watch) out for a lunchtime walk today.  There were a few reasons for this :

  –  I needed some mid-day exercise and fresh air, and thought Garmin watch would like some, too
  –  I’m slightly obsessed with Garmin watch
  –  I was curious what my “normal” walking speed was (answer : 15:45/mi)
  –  I’m slightly obsessed
  –  I wanted to know exactly how far the nearest froyo shop is to my office (answer : .64 miles)
  –  I wanted to know how many calories I’d burn walking said .64 miles twice (answer : 96)
  –  … and therefore how many ounces of delicious self serve frozen yogurt I could eat without feeling guilty (answer : not as much as was actually consumed)

I believe every baby should have a name.  As charming as “Hey, … you!” sounds, it’s nice to have a name to answer to, isn’t it?  I agree.  So I’ve spent the majority of the past uhh, 96 hours brainstorming names for little baby Garmin watch.  See, I can’t keep calling it “Garmin”, because we already have two of those (in the cars) and I get angry with them a lot.  They are BAD GARMINs 90% of the time.  And I really don’t want my new baby to have a tainted namesake with a bad reputation.

Here are some of the ideas I’ve collected so far.  Feel free to comment or suggest, but keep in mind I probably won’t listen because HELLO, you wouldn’t let someone else name your firstborn baby, would you?  Hmmm???

(because it would make me want to look like a VS model, and run fast like a gazelle)
(as in Brooks, because he is THA. MAN.)
(because then I’d always be the cute one)
And in case you’re all, ‘But Sarah Soon-To-Be, what about Chico?  Your adorable little mexi-mutt?  I thought he was your first baby???’
Well… right you are, smartass.  But I can get out of this on a technicality, because he was already named when I got him.  He’s a rescue, and I thought it cruel to confuse a 5 year old with a new name, so “Chico” stayed.  So there.  Garmin watch is my first REAL baby.
Lunch is over.  Back to work.  Fee Fi Fo Fum.

p.s.  Did you see the awesome new pages underneath my limes?  No?  That’s because I’m HTML ra-tawded and can’t break this stupid template design into something that makes sense AND looks good.  Anyways they’re there, and kinda/sorta/almost finished.  The tale of how I got started running, and the classic proposal post are ready for your (re)viewing pleasure.   The pages for wedding deets and more about me me me are coming soon to a theater computer monitor near you.
