A Day at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden

So, today I went to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden with my mom and one of my cousins. I haven’t taken pictures in a long time so I am quite rusty. I thought I should share some of the pictures I took. Hope people enjoy! (Note: I took pictures of names of some of the plants which I found interesting)

Garden Croton

Lol, looks like he's urinating, but he's just pouring out a cup of water.

Notice that you only see dead leaves and woodchips around...

 

Was very disappointed with this name

There are some beautiful things in the desert

Look! It's a mini-forest!

Hard no idea that carp could look this nice

Water Lillies!

WTF is Your Name?

So, I wake up on a typical weekday morning and turn on my guilty pleasure, the Maury Show. Yes I know, “why the hell do I watch that crap.” Simply because it makes me feel better about myself.

Anyways in the middle of watching a Maury Show episode filled with paternity tests (i.e. “This is the 5th guy I tested, I am 1000% sure that he’s my baby’s daddy. And he better step up to the plate!” That shit cracks me up.)

Enough with this background crap! Welcome back to “What Grinds my Gears.” This pet peeve is something which I have to deal with on a daily basis especially when I am watching television shows such as Maury. This peeve is people with weird names.

I can’t stand it! I don’t see the reason for giving someone a weird name. It’s not cute. I presume that you’re uneducated and don’t know that it’s a weird and stupid name. If you want your child to be very successful when they grow up, you’re setting them up for an uphill battle.

Alternate spellings are cool at times, but weird names, no dice! I know it’s a pet peeve of mine and many others who I have talked with. Just a thought to all those future parents out there: think about what you’re naming your child!

Here’s a list of some names which I consider weird:

Sincere, Lexus, Opal, Skyy, Timberland, Apple, Poppy Honey, Espn, Morpheus, Sovandara, Sovanrithy, Subhi, Suphachad, Tes, Wattie, Xerox, Korey, Rayan, Stone, Dandre, Diao, Ball, Cristobal, Fior, Selene, Zebedee, Legend, Flower, Sunshine, Dustiny, and MANY MANY more but I think you get the point.
