After Passion last night, we went to Barrage for drinks to celebrate Russ’ birthday. Jeff and I were talking to Michael Rose*, who admitted that he keeps mixing up our names. Jeff surmised that it was because we both have consonant-vowel-double consonant names, and that got us on to the topic of how unlikely it would be for a couple to each have that combination. It must have struck a chord with Mike because today he emailed me this list : “Matt, Jeff, Jess, Jenn, Jill, Nell, Bill, Bess, Robb, Tess, Biff.” Jeff also came up with “Will.”

I’ve always thought that Jeff and I would end up being called “Mutt and Jeff,” but the cartoon couple we most resemble is Walter & Perry from Home Movies.

* My circle of friends always calls him by his full name to distinguish him from Mike, but it’s starting to sound like “Veronica Mars.”

Heh, I’d never seen Home Movies before, so I TiVo’d an episode last weekend (the one where they go to a Renaissance fair… next door to a sci-fi convention). Walter and Perry are adorable! (So are you two!)

Unlikely as this union may be, I still think my palindrome name supercedes your tandem consonant-vowel-double-consonant names. Plus, I can fit my entire name on a license plate. Do we really want to split hairs, old pal?

If I hooked up with a girl named Anna, I’d totally win.

I guess I need to change my spelling to “Tomm”. Worst of all, though, was when I (briefly) dated a guy named Jerry.

And I loved Walter and Perry when watching them after Jeff TiVo’ed the episode he noted; for the last two days now we’ve been repeating their lines to one another, and giggling madly.

Oh my god… you two are so us.
