Mmmmm.... Skum Bananer, anyone?
HP8 isn't too sure she likes them ...
... and to be honest, I think I might be inclined to agree. (For reference, though, they taste more like hairspray than scum. Just in case you were wondering.)
Moving swiftly on; some of you were wondering if HP8 was going to be given a girl monkee name to go with her girl monkee nature (well, Stine was, at least). Personally, I quite like HP8 - it's sort of stuck. However, there are various other names we think would suit her too. So, my plan is this: she will have a day-to-day name, AND an official name (she is a thoroughbred monkee, right MM?). That way, she can use the official name at monkee shows and such like.
And now let's just pause for a moment to laugh wholeheartedly at that idea. Ha ha ha. (Don't get me wrong, HP8 - I think you are a queen amongst monkees, and I'm sure you'd win every rosette going if we were to enter you in one of these fictitious contests - but I just can't see it happening, somehow. Because 1) They don't exist, and 2) I doubt either of us could be arsed with it even if they did.)
Anyway, to get back to the name thingy: monkee contests or no, I think it's fine for HP8 to have a spare name; for special occasions and such like. Or just in case she ever takes up showjumping. So, we're working on it. I do have some ideas already, but need to run them by HP8 and see what she thinks. But I will be sure to let you know when a decision has been reached - just so's you know who to cheer for at the next Monkee Gala.
Ok, ok - I'll stop with that now. Sorry :o)
Happy weekend folks!

*please note: this is not actually one of the names we are considering. So if any nameless monkeys out there would like it... please, help yourself!
