Lost Weekend

Last weekend kind of free downloadable full hidden object games fell out of cat vitamin my life, even though I documented quite a bit of it with my camera. I had lunch with my mum (as the only one of her offspring currently in this state, it was my duty ;o) I also scored some splendid garage sale stuff. While we were out garage sale-ing we went and visited The Boat. Don't know that I've mentioned The Boat much here, basically it's the other woman in my life, M has been building The Boat for about the last three years. It's a Farrier Trimaran, and is becoming more and more beautiful the nearer it gets to completion. M hasn't been able to dote on it in his customary fashion of late due to real estate hell, so we go and say hello now and again.
the other woman
It's a little bit depressing that Boat is stuck on land, but it is exciting to think that we'll be getting it up to Queensland and will have some of the best sailing in Australia right at our door step! I refer to Boat as Boat as a name cannot be agreed upon. We had decided on Velouria from the Pixies song of the same name, but everybody kept looking blank when we tried to explain *sigh* so now M is sticking with the Pixies theme and is barracking instead for SurfaRosa and I am going with my current favourite Seabiscuit (as I'm forbidden to make any play on the 'tri' theme, as in 'Tri-umphant' or 'Trillian').

I say go with the Pixies.

Hmmm. You're not biased at all are you? ;o) Secretly, I think that SurfaRosa is going to win out *sigh* I'll just have to get a little sailboat and call it Seabiscuit.

Did you think of Trilobite? That would be THREEfold clever - the "tri", the marine aspect, and the "bite". Or go one further and spell it "TriloBYTE" thereby adding a geek factor that fits you. Maybe you can name the rescue dinghy :)

How about Boat?

Posted by: DAVO on May 19, 2003 10:14 AM

Actually I had thought of Trilobite, but, like i said, wordplay on 'Tri' is forbidden. Believe me, I've thought of most of them!

I like the name Boat!! I will float that tonight!! (....sorry)

i vote for 'Saucy Gibbon'

Posted by: hippogriff on May 19, 2003 04:02 PM

Hmmm, Saucy Gibbon... I may have to change my vote...

On a tangent: you've heard about the Goodies DVD that's coming out real soon now? It's Region 0 too...

(Sorry BeTh, I'll stop hijacking your comments now.)

You could always call it 'Rancid Halibut Giblets'.

One non-tri yet still tri name is "Haiku"--
a poem of 3 lines. It was to be the name of our Newick Tremolino 23 trimaran; but, frankly, the Trem is not japanese-poetic-looking enough to call Haiku. So we went cutesy with "Trilobite". . .
