    My Nest

    I almost always name things...even my home!  I don't know for sure how it came about, but shortly after moving in here, I started calling my apartment the Nest.  I also have a penchant for naming cars...they get their names within days of my getting them!

    I figured I would tell anyone who cared to listen. It is a Toyota Camry and I named her "Cami". Not the most original name, but it suits her.
