No "Dear" Here

I recently watched a tenth anniversary special celebrating the great science fiction program "Firefly".  It reminded me that the character named Wash had a great nickname for his wife Zoe.  He called her "Lamby Toes".

Another great endearment comes from an older movie called "Idle Hands".  The male lead called his girl "Baby Snakes".  If you like a comedic scare, you definitely should check out this flick.

Anyway, these are just some of the weird things I think of while in the midst of madly writing fifty thousand words for National Novel Writhing Month.
