Can I move to England or Europe, please? It gets ever more embarrassing living here in the US. I’m self-sufficient, cook lovely meals and can bake, and my mother would tell you I’m a great catch!
Yeah, and we don’t name our children after cars we can’t afford…
I named my son Jonathon Ariel – nice, alliterative, biblical yet contemporary. No Peugeots, Mercedes, or Jaguars. Children’s names have gotten pretty far-fetched over the years. But I could have sworn that BBC Radio 2 had a hostess named Fenilla Fudge – maybe I was imagining it or mishearing it :)
Isn’t she the minister for magic in Harry Potter?
Sorry, hopelessly off-topic, but you do realise the car was named after the original designer Emil Jellinek’s daughter, don’t you? (Mercedes – Spanish for mercy, deriving from one of the Virgin Mary’s titles.)
I applaud the generous and forgiving attitude of the victim and hope it encourages her attacker to realise that the people she has learned to hate and despise can be as admirable as anyone, and more admirable than many.
