The big middle name reveal!

Believe it or not, I’m not hung up on this Jon and Kate (+ 8, the TV show) thing like so many people are. It’s just that I happen to have a lot in common with Jon.

For instance, we both hate Kate.

Also, at any given moment at least two of our own children (more, in his case, ‘cause he has so many) irritate us no end.

Plus, we both hate Kate. I know I said that already but after watching a rerun late last night when I couldn’t sleep, I feel it bears repeating. Or should that be “bares repeating” because I was in bed nekkid while I was watching the show (satin sheets feel good on the skin).

But the main thing I have in common with Jon (besides the hate-Kate thingy) is that one of his dogs is named after me. Not my first name. My middle name. The name that is my father’s name spelled backwards. The name that is also my sister’s middle name.

Jon’s other dog is named Shoka.


  1. Your middle name is "nala"??? Cool. I love reading your blog... you always give me a chuckle. Poor Jon...that Kate can be quite .. well Kate.

  2. Your name is what??? You always say the darnest things!!!

  3. hmmm, had to think about that one for a minute. I wouldn't mind Kate so much if she just didn't talk. Yea, not at all... her voice and words is just so... well, toxic... I truly feel for her because I think Jon kept her under control in his own way, he just couldn't take it anymore.

  4. My best friend's dog is named Nala! She's a shih tzu...the dog, not my friend.
    I have never watched this show, ever...am I the only one?

  5. Okay, just let me say it. Kate is a super bitch! She is mean and treats him like he's an idiot.

    You gotta watch sleeping nekkid on satin sheets! Might get you 8 kids!


  6. I haven't seen the show, but now I am curious! Poor Jon! Poor Kate! Poor 8!


    P.S. Ditto on Malisa's comment about the satin sheets!

  7. I don't watch the show so I don't know if I hate Kate, but if you hate Kate then I hate kate. The dog isn't named Kate, is it? Poor thing.

  8. I don't watch the show so I have no idea what their dogs names are. I hate Kate just from watching her on talk shows. Plus did you see her in that ding danged bikini? She had 8 kids, a tummy tuck and looks like that? I NEVER looked like that. So who is watching the kids while she works out for 4 freakin hours a day?

  9. Nala? I like it! Your secret is finally out...I feel so much better now. ;-)


  10. I not only watch those crazy people , while yelling at the tv screen, I also watch that show with the family of 18 kids.
    I am transfixed.

    I can not explain it.
    I wonder if they are on tonight???


  11. I'd rather watch paint dry than to think she's gonna get one red cent from me watching "her" soap opera. Is it true she gets 75,000.00 PER SHOW? I wouldn't have a damn once of fat on me either with that kind $! Whose got time to get their freak on with 8 kids, who the hell would want to? Can you tell I just LOVE Kate!! Glad you got the package, have an awesome week!

  12. I have only watched that show once and that was enough! How can you have 8 children and be so self absorbed? She has redefined the word bitch! Poor kids and hubby!

  13. I have a group of emails friends who talk about Kate and Jon all the time and I can honestly say I don't even know who you're all talking about. And I think I'm glad I don't.

    I knew your middle name since you commented on my blog a while back that it was your father's name spelled backward.


Your opinion doesn't count, but I'd like to know what it is anyway! Please leave a comment!
