    January week 3

    mini.JPG

    Do you give inanimate objects a name? We do it all the time! There's Gertie my mini, Arthur, my laptop (Monty Python fans will remember Arthur Pewty), a vine in the garden is called Peter (Peter the Grape?) ... I know! :rollseyes:

    For your first 10 points, we'd like your page to feature a named object, or if you aren't as daft in your house as we are, a favourite object.

    Gertie is white with black stripes, please use white and black among any other colours you choose, for 10 points.

    And, for the final ten points, your title should include a proper name.

    Oh and you won't tell Gertie I described her as an inanimate object will you?

    This challenge runs until January 31st

    Here are some of our examples ...

    Susan I do give things a name all the time and not just named either they have personality mind you they are mostly my cat ornaments of which I’ve probably got about 100 I have to put stickers on the bottom of them as I would never remember them all. If I had a car she would certainly have a name

    I must be a different breed to you lot. I couldn’t even think of names for my chickens, they are just Brownie, Blackie, Whitie and cocky !
    My kids have only got one name as we couldn’t think of middle names

    We don't have names for the cars, but do for their sat-navs - Holly and Queeg (Red Dwarf fans). Not sure I could scrap about those though.

    Thanks Elaine, glad I’m not the only one
    I think it’s enough to be talking to an inanimate object without giving it a name too
    Which, as I write has given me an idea - Alexa !!
