Hoboken Morning Tidbits: 5/17/2011

Happy Tuesday, Hoboken!

Here’s a couple minor nuggets to get your day started: Worst baby name ever, high in the sky and more lost pets.

Who names their child after an internet fad?

Regardless of how “hip” or “in” today’s technology is – I’d recommend to my friends to pick a timeless name for their newborn baby girl or boy.

As I’m sure you might possibly have heard, one couple in Jerusalem just named their baby girl “Like,” after the dopey button on Facebook. They thought it was unique – and even came up with another “reason” for picking this utterly ridiculous & trendy name to justify their collossal mistake.

Sure, millions of people use it daily, on their wireless phones, and have become hooked. However, some folks even believe Facebook is going in reverse by making it much like a previous company we still love to hate – and something new will emerge in time (is there ever an “end all be all?”)

But I wonder how many kids out there named “HuffPo,” “Boo,” “AOL,” or “Flooz” have since changed their names.

Hobokenite witnesses Shuttle blast-off from plane

As NASA winds down the Space Shuttle program – Hoboken resident Stefanie Gordon happened to be on her way to Palm Beach, FL yesterday when she captured the final launch of the Endeavor into outer space.

Another missing cat: “Jinx”

Hoboken411 reader Michael spotted this sign regarding a missing 13-year old female Calico named “Jinx.”

“Jinx was last seen by Lola’s Restaurant. She doesn’t have any tags or collar – and doesn’t have any front claws, so she’s very vulnerable. She may have left out our 1st Floor Apartment which opens to a courtyard that is shared by all the buildings on the block.”

If you find the kitty – you can email Joe.

Hope everyone has a great day today!

Because she dislikes dogs… Or more specifically, dog owners. [quote comment=”207099″]Okay I’ll bite why?[/quote]

Yeah, I totally hate dogs and dog owners. Totally.

What I was aiming for originally was the privilege of telling people I don’t like… the name of my second dog. Like I want to answer Jen Giattino when she asks:

“What’s your dog’s name?”

“Dislike.”

But as you can see, I haven’t thought this through so it doesn’t quite work.

Speaking of Giattino, pawzclawz, what you said about Cunningham (who is among other dog-loving and dog-owning council people) is spot-on. Should be fun to watch the hilarity unfold…

I see said the blindman. It’s very convoluted. I understand what you meant now. I am no longer confuzzed. [quote comment=”207150″]Yeah, I totally hate dogs and dog owners.

Okay, I’ll admit it, I’m confuzzed. Is this referencing Jen Giattino? If it is I can’t wait till she becomes a councilperson. She will be seated next to dogowner/councilman Peter Cunningham who owns two of the sweetest dogs in town. “Good Times!” [quote comment=”207115″]Because she dislikes dogs… Or more specifically, dog owners.[/quote]

Imagine being on the opposite side of that plane…

“Everyone on the right side of the plane, you can see the Space Shuttle launching off.”
“Everyone on the left side of the plane, you can see everyone on the right side of the plane watching the Space Shuttle take off.”
