In the famous words of Timbaland, “It’s too late to apologize.” However, I hope you’ll indulge me.
I’ve been keeping something from you, Tubers. It’s a secret so juicy it’s worthy of an anonymous tip to Gossip Girl.
Spotted: Tube Talk Girl wearing a hoodie and baggy pants. Is she hiding a baby bump or just too many trips to Cold Stone?
It’s true, gossip hounds. I’m pregnant.
See, I told you it was juicy.
Those of you who come here regularly may have noticed that back in January, all the way through April, things have been a little slower than normal here. Sure, I can blame it partly on the TV writers’ strike that interrupted our TV schedule, but I must be honest and confess that it was mostly due to the non-stop vomiting for seven months, several trips to the ER, and the physician-ordered bed rest during the first trimester.
I’ve finally managed to get the vomiting under control, thanks to my doctor and a miracle medicine called Zofran, which is used mostly for chemo patients. Yes, Zofran executives, I’m available for commercial endorsement, if you’d like. Your product has literally saved my life.
A few weeks ago, I was chatting with an online blogger pal, The TV Addict, about my situation. He asked if we had chosen a name for our impending bundle of boy joy. I told him that we still hadn’t decided, but that I liked several names that, coincidentally, happened to be the names of some of my favorite TV characters: Sawyer (Lost,) Christian (Nip/Tuck,) Alexander “Lex” (Smallville.)
I swear that it’s purely coincidental that those names are TV characters. Although, Mr. Tube Talk isn’t buying it.
The TV Addict passed on his name suggestion: TiVo. Don’t worry. I’m pretty sure he was joking. Then, he did a fun post asking readers if they’d ever named a child after a fictitious television character. His very creative photo and blog post got me thinking.
Why not use you, my TV-loving-peeps, to help us choose a name? It worked for NBC when they were trying to choose a name for Scrubs’ Carla and Turk’s little girl, so why can’t it work for me?
So, please, take a minute and share below in the comments any BOY names that you love. (And it’s 100 percent OK if they just happen to be TV-character names. I am Tube Talk Girl, you know.)
I can’t offer you an all-expense-paid trip to Aruba or anything, if we use a name you suggest. This is Tube Talk, after all, not NBC. But you would get bragging rights that you helped name Tube Talk Girl’s baby. I could also throw in a year’s supply of dirty diapers, if you’d like.
So, go ahead, Tubers. Suggest away.
And to my friend Mary Kay, I appreciate your suggestion, but we decided against naming the baby “little Barack Clinton Biller.” Sorry.
