I know Paula, and I can say with complete confidence that she's definitely interested in how to buy & sell everything, like music on interest free credit.

Paula, I'm not sure you should be throwing stones -- if memory serves, your middle name is of the unusual it's a dude's name or something. Gene! It's Gene! No idea where I pulled that from, but I'm sure I now have forgotten something rather important because of it.

Granted, it's no Bigboobs McGee, but still.

Please don't make fun of me. And yes, I did in fact grow into my name. No need to ask, jerks.

Polly Dickey? Did you call her Polly or Dickey? Wow, I thought Tootie was appropriate yet goofy, but Polly Dickey! Simply awesome.

I would just like to say that Hilles Horner is my mother and it is actually really disrespectful that you think her maiden name should be a that of a stripper. She is now Hilles Whedbee and happens to be a very well known and wonderful nurse midwife and is actually doing something nice for people instead of making fun of other peoples names. You also might want to check with all of these people and see if they like you using their names as punch lines.

Paula Dixon said...

I apologize for the unauthorized use of the name Hilles Horner. I would be happy to remove the name Hilles Horner from the list. If anyone besides Hilles Horner would like her name removed, please email me.

My favorite aspect of the anonymous post: bad grammar. Peoples' names. Apostrophe. The possessive.

people is already plural, dr. grammar. people's is the correct usage.

They all sound like hill billy names if you say 'em with a twang.

Garrison Forest? Weird School. I was thrown off the campus one night by the headmistress when we were there to see some people with the kind of weird names you read above.

Then we went to St. Tim's and saw even weirder names.

The Baltimore area has the weirdest preppy names of any city in the US.

Your blog is artistic and exciting. In excellent boarding schools, students realize their potential and grow under the sheer control of teachers. Teachers of the boarding schools give individual attention to the boarders and help them out when they call for support.
