I was part of a movement of "dinosaur moms" when I lived in Maryland (Astrodon Johnstoni is the Maryland state dinosaur.) Which is nothing more than this -- dinosaur moms delight in the half-feral nature of the beasties they parent, even as they whisper Shakespeare and Kierkegaard in their ears at night.

Name our band!
Shallow Gravy (Mmmm. This one is from The Dude)
Cat Vacuuming (Sounds naughty but just a wonky term for procrastination)
The Current (Nice Fitzgerald reference here, I think)
The New Colossus (Rejected for sounding too much like colostomy. Shame.)
Loretta As An Ornament (What I promised my teen self I’d name a band if I ever had one. Might have worked in 1982.)
Terrible Beauty (What I promised my college self, upon reading Yeats)
The Choir Invisibule (Gets the wonk vote, surely.)
