Ticky Box!  
So... I pouted for a lot of the week because Nolan didn't get me anything for my birthday. Correction. He did. He got me a bottle of lotion and a bottle of bubble bath. I pouted, quietly, pretending as if I didn't care.

Meanwhile, seegrim sent me a collectible teapot, teacup and stand (so adorable, I gave a litle happy sigh when I unwrapped it), elyaeru gave me an LJ gift certificate, Dad sent a check, and I got well wishes and fun comments, and e-cards from the flist, but nothing from hubs.

Admittedly, time is fluid in Nolanland. It doesn't always happen on anyone else's timetable. I know this. And he abhors the greeting card holidays. Valentine's day, mother's day, etc., I can practically guarantee I get zilch. However, a random Thursday? Yep, he brings me flowers, Or does something nice. So I usually don't complain. But he usually gets the birthday right. Thus, the pout.

So yesterday he brings me my birthday present. Wholly unexpected. A brand new, HP Pavillion dv6000 LAPTOP. Oh, my, he is lovely. I am in heaven. I'm currently sitting at the dining table, in close proximity to the kiddos, sipping coffee at the pretty guy.

But he needs a name.

He's sleek, sophisticated, powerful, masculine, and he admittedly turns me on, just a little. So he needs a good name. F-list? You have your work cut out for you!

What should his name be?

Alistair
7(25.9%)
Aidan
8(29.6%)
Bernard
3(11.1%)
Cecil
2(7.4%)
Miles
1(3.7%)
Sebastian
6(22.2%)

Or something else?

Alistair is one of my most favorite Brit names. It's even the name of the hot bachelor in my (unfinished) mail-order bride fic. *nods*

Honestly, I cannot believe it wasn't suggested before....

Maybe Cormac can be his middle name. Nice!

Hmm...I really liked Bernard. It spoke to me. Perhaps that's what I'll name mine...someday. Life with only a desktop now is a little like life with no Dr. Pepper. *pouts*

I'm so happy Nolan didn't flake on your birthday. :)

LOL! I just got the same laptop! Well, mine's in the dv6000 series, anyway.

I'm betting you have the awesome little remote control too, huh? Yay for awesome presents!

Oh, present WINS! My new lappy (Dell Inspiron 1525, in GREEN) is emant to be here on Wednesday.

I voted for Sebastion, as it's an awesone name, and the only Alistair I knew wore a GOLD LAMÉ DRESS to my 18th birthday party. Bastard upstaged me.

Also? That OWL! OMG ILU.
