I saw a place with the name Say Cheese. I'm not sure what the place was, but it reminded me of the episode Something Blue.

I also saw a place named James Avery. It reminded me of John Avery Whittaker.

So the other night, I was at the Nationals VS Brewers baseball game. So, all of the National's mascots are presidents. Well, one of them looks so similar to Whit, I was surprised it WASN'T him :)

It looks like President William Howard Taft to me.

But it also bears some resemblance to Whit...;)

I'm reading the book John G. Paton: Missionary to the New Hebrides and several times in it Mr. Paton references the city of Aberdeen, Scotland. When I read that, my reaction was: "Hey, that's where Whit was born!"

Tonight, our family was talking about the British monarchy, the new heir being born and all, and it was referenced that Prince Charles' wife's name was (prior to marriage), Camilla Parker Bowles.

Hee hee, Frog Face, I absolutely sympathize.
Let's see... I was recently reminded of Odyssey rather blatantly.
I am not making this up:
We were driving along in Texas, and I saw this giant billboard saying "AIO: a new kind of wireless."

this may sound REALLY weird, but a few days ago, I was laying sick in bed and my mind kept imagining all sorts of random odyssey characters helping me, like Jimmy Barcley kept handing me my cup of water etc'....I must be really sick.

Sorry you're sick, Nate Great. But that is very touching... Beautiful, really.
Yelsew, that's fantastic. Corey Burton is in the credits of the classic Disney TV show Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers, but he's so versatile we can't figure for sure which character he plays.

My family constantly quotes AIO just randomly and that obviously makes me think of AIO. By the way, I did see that comercial. I also went on a Dr. Seuss ride in Universal, and the played a recording of the actor who played Trent reading aloud a Dr. Seuss book! The actress who plays Liz also plays Lucy Van Pelt in some of the Peanuts films! The actor who plays Trent also plays Linus on the Peanuts films! AIO is everywhere!

My brothers and I were watching America's Funniest Videos, and we heard the guy say "And now.. Jess?" We were like, "Wouldn't that be funny if that was the same Jess as..." And we heard Wooton's voice. My brothers got so excited XD
Also, I was trying to find some inspirational, yet funny things to write in my brother's college notebook for him to find, and I started writing some Eugene quotes. :P

I was reading last night, and the term "molecular formulas" came up. I realized the proper term was "formuli", and that particular word reminded me of Eugene.

The other day I was having a picnic with my family and we had Kentucky Fried Chicken. Looking at the cole slaw on her plate, my sister said randomly: "A deaf cabbage". :)
