The squirrel showed up this past summer on our reusable shopping bags. Next in an episode of Fup. Store Cat. (And another. And another.) Then on a Powell's mug made exclusively for staff and Indiespensable subscribers. Most recently, the squirrel appeared on this year's edition of the souvenir t-shirts we create for employees each holiday season.
But here's the thing: We're tired of just saying "the squirrel."
Help us pick a name. Too late!
Something bookish, maybe. Or woodsy — Forest Park-woodsy. Or not woodsy or bookish; maybe something pertaining to Portland. (If Terwilliger, Flanders, and Lovejoy were good enough for Mr. Groening...)
Post a name in the comments field by December 21st. We'll run our favorites past the squirrel. Winner gets a $100 Powell's card, a featured book shelf at Powells.com, and bragging rights into the future.
Need inspiration? Go talk to a squirrel. Come bearing acorns.
Update: Our submission deadline has come and gone. Further entries and comments are welcome, but only entries provided by December 21st will be eligible for the prize. Our winner will be announced on Tuesday, December 30, here on the blog.
