It's the end of the world as we know it...

Politics, philosophy, the law, current events, left leaning debates, religion, baseball, football, pop culture, growing up Greek, random events in my life...whatever hits my mind at the time.

So I had a random question. How do you feel about dating someone with the same name as your parents? That is just really weird for me, and I wondered if that was a me thing, or whether it was just weird. Opinions??

Last night I was at work late. I don’t like the lights in my office; they are florescent and hurt my eyes and give me a headache. I have a desk lamp I use at night; during the day I just use natural sunlight. So I was in my office, and the cleaning lady - not realizing that I was here - walked in. She jumped when she saw me, but told me that she was just coming to get some peanuts. So now they are for the managing partner AND the cleaning staff...

I saw comedian Robert Dubac last weekend at the Akron Civic Center (a simply stunning building inside. The nicest theatre I've ever been in. Truth.) But if anyone has the opportunity to see his show, I highly recommend it. HIGHLY. It’s about the difference between men and women. And both sexes end up enjoying it. He is writing a new show, Piss and Moan, and did part of that. The ABCs of Religion. My favorite was "T," the one thing that they all have in common - tax free. It was very clever. I highly recommend him if he comes to your town...

    No chance of me ever dating a woman who shared a name with my mother ...

    Are the Akron Civic Theater and the Akron Civic Center the same place? I've heard both and always end up confused.

    I know the "Theater" is a downtown landmark near Canal Park (or Stadium or whatever) ... saw Chrissy Hynde there a few years ago in a blizzard. We had to evacuate because the popcorn machine in the lobby caught fire and set off the smoke alarms. Good times.

    Thank god there aren't too many adult film stars that go by "Barb."

    I've never really thought about the question really. I don't think I'd really care all that much, and I'm not likely to encounter it, my mother's name isn't all that common among people in my age group.

    I think it'd be odd to date someone with my mom's name. (Of course looking at the baby name wizard that looks unlikely as my folks names are even more ancient than mine).

    Given the fact that I have actively pursued two women with my mother's name in my life, it apparently doesn't bother me. Now if they looked like my mom. No way in hell.

    Tony, No chance b/c it's weird, or b/c she has an uncommon name? But yes, they are the same place.

    It appears that most people's parents have more unique names, at least for this generation. My father's name is quite normal and popular.


    Jason, guess it doesn't bother you though. And it doesn't appear to bother Jim.

    Perhaps it is just me??

    No chance 'cuz it's weird. Maybe that makes me weird, but no chance nonetheless.
