  • Morning Coffee: 2009 Most Popular Names List is out

    People are actually naming their boys “Cullen,” as in Edward Cullen from Twilight. It’s no. 485 on the 2009 list of most popular baby names. I have two thoughts about that: (1) Edward (no. 137) would be easier on the child; and (2) how do you get the baby’s dad to agree? I mean, after you say, “Hey, I fell in love with Edward Cullen from the Twilight books and I want to name our child after him,” is the dad really cool with it?

    Today’s Ebates Daily Double store is, which is giving 12% cash back (instead of the usual 6%). Scroll down to the discount that says “Free shipping and $25 gift certificate” and that’s exactly what you’ll get with a $25 purchase when you click on the “shop now” link next to it.
