Today, a little rant.

During the evening dog walk Charlie and I were having our usual stream of consciousness conversation when at one point he said that his wife, Liz was really into the group The Black Eyed Peas.

Charlie: What’s up with The Black Eyed Peas.  They all have strange names.  apl.de.ap?  will.i.am?

Carol: I actually like will.i.am.  It spells William AND it’s a backwards declarative sentence.

Charlie: Only in a Dr. Seuss book!

Carol: Remember when you wondered about The Edge of U2?  You couldn’t get over the fact that his first name was a definite article.

(DON’T GET US STARTED!!!)                  And then we got started….

Interlude whilst you think of all the kids you know with crazy names.  A sister-in-law and a niece both work in schools and I love when I get the list of kids’ names.  Including, but not limited to the siblings Tropicana and Rambo, and a young lady named Princess Precious Gorgeous.

Then of course there was Nosmo King.  (No Smoking.)  No relation.

And what’s up with celebrities naming their kids Brooklyn and Bronx?   Do you think ANY ONE OF THEM has EVER been to the Bronx???

The above painting was done during one of those CRAZY Caribbean storms where the rain comes down so hard you can’t tell where the ocean ends and the sky begins.  I enjoyed this storm at the beach bar of the Flamboyant Lounge.  Yes, it is most certainly called the Flamboyant Lounge though it wasn’t as flamboyant as it was slow.  It really should have been called the “Slow Service Lounge”.   Or ” The We’re  So Slow Please Order Your Meal On Tuesday If You Want To Eat On Thursday Lounge.”

I mean there’s Island Time and then there’s Island Time.  She was our waitress at the Flamboyant Lounge.  I’m still waiting for my burger.
