Caboose, chartreuse, deduce, footloose, juice, produce, seduce

The latest Blogathon game asked participants to tell how or why they chose their blogs' names.

Considering this is a source of amusement (and private pain) for me, I decided to enter. For all of my worldly intelligence, my accolades, and my bittersweet wit, I could not for the life of me be more saddened at how I arrived at my blog's name.

You see, I had been stumped myself, and I had asked my human pet to assist me in thinking of a clever and unusual name for my blog. She went immediately to a free online rhyming dictionary and entered my name into the rhyme generator. As the words popped up, she said each of those words with my name, alternating which word came first.

When she hit the word, "excuse", you would have thought she had struck gold.

"That's it! It'll be called 'The Zeus Excuse'!"

Sigh...

At least it wasn't called Deuce Zeus, Goose the Zeus, or Vamoose Zeus!

See if I ever ask her for help again...

My only comfort comes in the form of a web generator:

How many have your name?


At least no one else has to suffer this humiliation.

We will change names!
107,364 Karls and 15,122 Anastasias.
And we thought we were originals!
No matter how you got your name - we find it very intriguing!
Do you actually use lightning bolts when your human doesn't obey or Isis gets on your nerves?

You have a very unique name, Zeus. :)

I wonder how many Dragonheart's there are out there? I'll have to go visit that site!

Here are some questions for you Zeus. Apologies if they have already been asked:

What's your favourite food? Snack? Toy?

Well, I guess my blog's name is pretty obvious. It's a portmanteau of 'Pablo' and 'blog': Pablog! There's probably a bazillion Pablos in the world, though. We're quite prolific. Keep on bloggin, Zeus!
