thursday thirteen is back! (#xi)

Thirteen Things about MY NAME

many many years ago, when i was born, the name Ariel was quite rare in the english-speaking world and all over it was definitely a name for a male person.

when i was about 7, a new laundry detergent was created called Ariel.

it was not the greatest name for a little girl to have.

today, thanks to cybill shepherd and walt disney, there is a chance that one day soon when i visit a tourist tchatchke store or a highway rest area, i might find barettes or a keyring with my name on it :-)

nu - from nearly 6.5 million hits on google, here are 13 Ariel sites that, while i do NOT necessarily endorse them, caught my eye this morning:

1. Ariel Rescue
2. The Ariel Atom
3. Ariel V
4. Ariel Dynamics
5. Ariel1988
6. Ariel Non-Alcoholic Wines
7. Ariel, a Moon of Uranus
8. Arielholics
9. Ariel Ministries
10. Talk to Ariel
11. Ariel by Sylvia Plath
12. W. Shakespeare's Ariel
13. Ariel Owners Motorcycle Club
