Sunshine, baby!  
Yay! Finally! Done with work! Fangirl! Now! WHEEEE!!! xD

Even though it was busy today at the office, I actually managed to get some things done that started to pile up like mountains. \O/ Mostly pulling, pushing, poking papers... The clear skies (not one tiny cloud anywhere to see...) and sunshine since 6am did their fair share too and made it easy to work on a Monday. <3

But I'm glad that I'm at home now. Only downside was that I missed most of Transformers. *wails* Couldn't they wait till I was off-work? Grrr! Best. Score. EVAR!

Btw, would you call your car Bumblebee? Or you child? At work I got this call, somehow my name was mentioned and then:

Me: "Mercedes."
Caller: "Uhm, Mer-Mercedes?"
Me: "Yes." *facepalms cause she knows what's coming*
Caller: "Like, ehm, like-"
Me: "Yes, like the car."
Caller: "Ah, right. Okay."
Me: "Hm-hm."
Caller: "Really?"
Me: *headdesk*

Ah, the highlight of my day so far. ♥

When that happens, just point out the car was actually named after a girl:

"An Austrian diplomat based in Nice, a business man running a profitable business selling cars, and a racing enthusiast, (Emil) Jellinek had been racing DMG automobiles under the pseudonym Mercédès, after his daughter, Mercédès Jellinek.[1] Later he contracted with DMG for a small series of dedicated sports cars containing an engine that officially bore his daughter's name." -from wikipedia

*squish* I'll keep that in mind! Thanks for the wiki-entry. :D

Ah, just think of all those spannish speaking women who are also called Mercedes. I bet they must get that often too!

And you're quite good. A friend of mine told me that one of her friends called her daughter Clafoutis. Yeah... *shakes head*

And yeah for fangirling!!!!!!
Mercy: [Fringe] Charlie/Olivia - grin@workmercscilla on March 7th, 2011 04:58 pm (UTC)
Yes, at least I am not alone. :)

Ouch. That is truely...ah, horrible. Why can't they stick to normal names? *shakes head with you*

Vicky: [Actors] Catherine Tate - Tate Approvesvickysg1 on March 7th, 2011 05:01 pm (UTC)
Yeah... I think that some parents just ask for their kids to be bullied at school because of their names!

You know how much I love Catherine Tate, and when she was fangirling over Martin Sheen, she was just like any other fangirls!

Oh, oh, we had one (I think two classes above me) who was called "Napoleon". That was so cruel. O_o

Those moments are the best! Especially Catherine always seems to be so human and 'normal' (you know what I mean), and that's why she is such a great actress and loved by so many fan(girl)s. :D
Vicky: [Actors] Catherine Tate - Would youvickysg1 on March 7th, 2011 05:14 pm (UTC)
OMG, that's even worse, I think! Seriously, don't they think at least for a second before they name their children?

Yes! That! I totally know what you mean! And seriously, who didn't want to ask that question *points to icon* to their favourite actor/actress. And you're right, that's totally why!
Mercy: [Doctor Who] Doctor/Rose - ahhh!!!mercscilla on March 7th, 2011 05:31 pm (UTC)
No, I think they rather want the craziest name and become well-known for that. And the kids have to suffer. I prefer names like Emily or Johanna. :)

We all want to ask it! Too bad not every actor/actress feels comfortable enough to answer it. :/ Though the English actors/actresses seem to be much cooler with that question.
Vicky: [Actors] Catherine Tate - Tate Approvesvickysg1 on March 7th, 2011 05:34 pm (UTC)
I love the name Emily, too! I prefer more classic names, too, it's better anyway!

Yeah, that's sad! Them and Martin Sheen!

Well, I think your name is cool. It's unusual but as it was already pointed out, the car was named after a girl everyone should shut up. My parents almost called me Sassa before they decided to go with something less exotic.

Too bad no one appreciates the car and its history, or they would just love your name. :3
ankareeda: yellow_heartankareeda on March 8th, 2011 12:39 am (UTC)
I love your name, it's unique and you're NOT the 4th "child" with the same name in a class... *beams* *hugs*
pueblo_01pueblo_01 on March 8th, 2011 03:49 am (UTC)
When Domonique first saw your whole name her response wasn't "like the car?" her's was "Like Mercedes from glee?" with a fangirl squee....

Ja das mit den Namen... ich hatte ne Klassenkameradin, die hatte auch noch den Nachnamen Benz und ihre Eltern wollten ihr wirklich den Vornamen Mercedes geben... irgendwer hat dann gesagt das ginge nicht... o_O Ich mag den Vornamen so generell aber .
