The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

A genuine Donnapalooza

Is this ambivalence I'm seeing?

Last night The Donnas played at World Cafe Live. I almost called up Rob to see if he wanted to meet me there but I was dressed in my business best and had nothing else to wear. The Donnas would definitely have made fun of me upon my entrance to the concert hall, just as they poke fun at my name every day of their existence. I really don't understand why they chose Donna and not Angie or Sheila or Tanya? Certainly there are worse names out there.

Top Ten names rejected by the band before settling on "The Donnas":

  1. Judy, Judy, Judy
  2. (Marie's The Name) His Latest Flame
  3. Hillary Dillary Dock
  4. The Cleopatronizers
  5. Shirley Shirley Bo Birley
  6. Betty Don't
  7. Marge in alia
  8. Marcia, Marcia, Marcia
  9. Katrina and the Waves
  10. Tampon 20

Oh, and Sheila called to thank me for not mentioning her.
