What’s in a Name?


Last night I was lying in bed with Eric (bow chicka wow wow…juuuust kidding), and I briefly mentioned the phrase “figment of my imagination.”  I said whenever I say that phrase, what I’m really thinking about in my head is the phrase “pigment of my imagination.”  A pigment is the powder form of a color which is mixed with oil, water,  or other ingredients to make paint.  It is also a synonym of “color.”

Since the start of my blog I’ve been thinking that I want to give it a name other than my own.  It’s more fun that way.  I don’t want my name to be the forefront of the blog, I want it to be behind the blog.   So, last night my husband suggested that I name my blog “Pigments of Imagination.”  And because bed is where Eric and I do all of our best thinking, I decided that it was a brilliant idea.  What do you think?  Is it too weird because it has the word “pig” in it?  Any better suggestions?

While we’re on the subject of pigs, here are a couple of my favorite pig photos from here and here:

P.S.  You may have noticed some weird fluctuations in the background of my blog.  I am trying to revamp this blog a little.  I just don’t know what I want yet.  So I apologize for any past, present, or future weirdness.  I’ll figure it out eventually!

    Hey Mel, I love how the title piggybacks on a popular phrase.
    Who is the kid licking the pig?
