Cactus

weather: sunny
outside: 20°C
mood: okay

Today is, co-worker, A's last day. He was a developer on the PDF project and the QXP project with me. He did some great work. His girlfriend is moving back to Montréal to do her Mechanical Engineering degree, so he's going with her. He's going to be a mooch/bum for a while.

Anyway, I have inherited one of his cactus plants. It's just a little thing about the size of a golf ball. He had two and he gave the other one to another person.

So, now I think I should name it to give it a better chance at survival... knowing my black thumb and all. Suggestions?

[Update - 1439h]

Suggestions:

  • Neville (suggested by: ntang) - in Harry Potter-lore, Neville Longbottom was a round, pudgie boy and kinda "green". A golf ball can't help but be round and pudgie.

  • Hedgewig (suggested by: aliasa) - I know it's "Hedwig and the Angry Inch", but "Hedgewig" subtley alludes to the fact that it's a plant... it might be lame, but hey...

More choices, people! More choices =)
