Ok, you guys...voting has started!







I know you are excited, but try to contain your enthusiasm to one vote please. I have about 20 readers. If I have 234 votes, it might look suspicious ;)

Hi Monika. What if there is a tie? ;)

 
At 23:09, Blogger Minka said...

I like the name Calvin for a car or dog--my friends named theirs for Calvin Klein-but somehow there's a nice ring to hollering out Cal-vin

And can't I vote again? Please

 
At 00:18, Blogger Minka said...

Pia, I agree...Calvin is great. I can´t stop you from voting again ;) You are a free person and have to make the choice, but I think it will be fun to see a true outcome. We have enough of manipulating of votes in the world already :)

Dark green is a lovely color for a car! Congratulations on the purchase of your first vehicular baby:)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for being comforting about my stalker. I am debating taking it down because I dont want them to know they bother me so much. So if I take down the post I hope you dont get offended that your comment isn't there anymore. I wish I could move it down to the previous post so it wouldnt disappear :). Please visit again!

PS: Loving your web design. Very cool.

 
At 02:44, Blogger Minka said...

don´t worry aisha. I´ll be back many times, leaving many comments...I agree with taking it down, don´t wanna gove them any attention!
Thanks for stopping by!

This is getting exciting!

 
At 05:27, Blogger Jamie Dawn said...

I'm rooting for Calvin for SOME reason.

 
At 05:35, Blogger SquareGirl said...

I love Calvin...I am worried that Digory might win (I've never heard of such a name) and have been a little tempted to cheat and vote twice, but will stay true to the intention of this poll and vote one time only...then again, if Calvin doesn't win, maybe that's what I'll name my Civic.

Ich denke, daß "Manfred" ein guter alter Deutscher Name für ein schon deutsches Mädchenauto ist!

Seien Sie glücklich!

 
At 12:27, Blogger Doug said...

Are you going to ask us to change your oil,, too?

 
At 13:43, Blogger Minka said...

Ap3, we will dance the bohemian dance eletric any moment now :)

Jamie, it seems to be a popular choice and what was the name you suggested again? Igor, wasn't it ;)

Squaregirl, it seems Calvin and Digory are taking the lead...I quite like it!

Keith, well somebody suggested it and I like the ring of it. Besides the huge mammoth In iceage was called Manfred, I think or at leats somethign similar...

No Doug, I drive into a Station where all the people in these dark blue overalls are and i give them my keys and say:"Could you be so nice to check my oil for me, and -if you are not too busy- I think the petrol needs to be filled up too!*movement of eye lashes*
See, the thing is this...we know you guys think we can´t do it and we like you to believe that for a little while longer :)
When i took my driving test, the instructor asked me to open the front of the car and I had to show him how I´d check my oil and I got full points for that my friend*she says ever so proudly!*

I likes me the name Otto... what can I say?

Wahey!

It rhymed... I tried to be spunky but I am lost, LOST!

Hrmph!

 
At 14:59, Anonymous Joel said...

I favor Otto for a couple of reasons...1) It's a play on "auto" and 2) Both of my grandfathers were named Otto, which I have always thought was a better name for a machine than a person...no offense to all of the human Ottos out there.

 
At 15:08, Blogger Mo'a said...

Ok! *sulk* Jeves did not make it, so I am rooting for Calvin. Digory is for dogs I think....hmmm....you know like in Hot Digory/Digitty Dog. Am stretching it a bit? So I am voting for Calvin.....Mortimer sounds macabre to me...wonder why? :) Do I get to ride in the Drottningar Bill/Queens Car, Calvin in August? :0 That is not Bill the letter i is in place of a i with a comma instead of dot over it....it makes the word bill sound like bee-l or something like that...this is for the benefit of Monikas many friends who may not speak Icelandic :)

 
At 16:28, Anonymous logo said...

Voted!

 
At 17:46, Blogger cube said...

I voted for otto because it sounds like auto. It's perfect.

 
At 18:40, Blogger Sar said...

I voted. Personally I wouldn't mind seeing Digory, Otto, or Calvin win.

And speaking of voting, you made it to the top 5 caption finalists this week, Monika! :)

 
At 20:26, Blogger ariel said...

I didn't see The Car in the list so I went for Mortimer. I am not quite sure how these things work, can I make Mortimer win if I vote for it 50 more times or do I need 50 different IP addresses to have it done? :-)

 
At 20:27, Blogger ariel said...

Mortimer just sounds so reliable! and suspicious at the same time.

 
At 17:57, Blogger Johnboy said...

I like Otto Dumbledore! That sounds like a car that would cover some serious miles! :)
Congradulations my queen. Sounds like you've traded in one dip stick for another. This one will hopefully be more loyal to our Queen!

 
At 21:48, Blogger ariel said...

Otto Dumbledore, man, it rocks!

 
At 05:05, Blogger Penny said...

I voted.. just so you know someone didn't double up.

Calvin..

 
At 12:51, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Are you actually going to name your car Otto if it wins?

 
At 12:53, Anonymous pia said...

Only one vote? what if I want to change my vote?

 
At 14:56, Blogger cube said...

You know Monika, sometimes things have a way of naming themselves. Perhaps you should wait & see...

 
At 17:10, Anonymous Kolbrún said...

Hi. Yes still in Scotland and now I have purchased http://kolbrun.is but the ugla one still works so don't worry about changing your link. I've not decided what to do with it yet. I've taken up your practise of writing in English since I've made quite a few friends here who may or may not be interested in my blog :)

best of luck with naming your car - I totally get what you mean with the Hon thing and I prefer Calvin over Otto as there seem to be a contest between these two. And I've participated in the poll with that opinion. Take care babe.

 
At 18:32, Blogger AsianSmiles said...

Otto.
i voted once.
but i'm thinking of sending bots to vote.

lol, just kidding.

 
At 20:45, Blogger Doug said...

This was the Thursday brain-teaser?

 
At 21:27, Blogger Sar said...

Just checking in to see the status of your car naming contest and to say hi.

And what an odd relief there wasn't a brain teaser Thursday as Blogger and I were out of commission yesterday so I don't feel guilty for having missed it. Did that make any kind of sense?

 
At 02:20, Blogger Jenna Howard said...

Considering I suck at brain teasers, this was much easier for me.

Unfortunately I can't remember what I picked. Pffft.

 
At 03:25, Blogger Doug said...

Do you have any idea how tempting you're making it to cast a second vote? Was gibt's?

 
At 11:15, Blogger Minka said...

I am sorry you guys, I am back.
I played mom to two lovely boys the last three days and it was somehwere out in the countryside...needless to say I couldn´t connect! It drove me insane, but than I decided it was a good thing to try and see how far my addiction has gone already...it turns out very!

 
At 18:46, Blogger windowtomymind said...

Naming your Honda, what else have you named that isn't ordinarily given a name?

 
At 22:05, Blogger Minka said...

well...lots of things. My teddies...they are called teddy bears, but they still get a name! I just need some name to greet my car when I get out in the mornings. Hi car! Sounds kinda well usual...I need to spice thigns up a little :)
