I’m in Wikipedia … sort of

The other day, out of curiosity, Eric and I Googled our names. I started with just my first name, and surprise! There’s a Wikipedia entry for it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pooja. I clicked on the Discussion tab, and apparently some other Pooja out there is making a band name for the rest of us (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Pooja)…

Ouch!

The better page for the background on my name is by going to the page using the alternate spelling “Puja”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puja.

The first page mentions some actresses named “Pooja.” I was actually named after an actress, though I don’t know exactly which. The story (which I should confirm, since I heard it some time ago) is that my mom was hanging out with a friend while she was pregnant with me (my mom, not the friend). They were watching some Hindi movie with this Pooja lady in it. My mom’s friend said “‘Pooja,’ that’s a nice name.” And my mom was like “Okay.” Sorted!

Oh, and I had another weird dream this morning; I was a contestant on the current “Bachelor”! And I, along with this other contestant, had to dance on this stage in a red bikini for the guy. But I never got around to the performance; I was just inside the dressing room freaking out about having to put on a bikini..
