    What is it with people naming stuff? I know people in their fifties who still name their cars, motorcycles and boats. I just saw somebody on FB who bought a wheelbarrow, posted a picture of it and named it "Big Jim".

    My car is called "Toyota" btw.

    Mines just - the car. The telly is the telly and I am sat on a couch I named couch. Of to bed soon in my bed I named bed. Using the name of an object as its "name" means people understand me and don't think I am fucking mental when I say I drove here in Ian having watched MOTD on muffin the TV - looking forward to going home and having a sleep in Yonkers my bed.................................

    I call my car Ruj, but that’s cos the last 3 letters on the plate are RUJ. And it’s a bit like Roj. I called my previous car Beni cos we drove it to Benicassim festival not long after I got it and the whole thing was quite an adventure. My first car was called Bungle. And my dick is called Burj Khalifa. The last one isn’t true.
