|How I got my name is rather interesting. Mommy rescued me off the streets and loves the artist/writer Edward Gorey. She had read "The Sopping Thursday" which is a little illustrated story about a dog who saves a baby (who is laying in an umbrella) from drowning in a flooded street. The umbrella belonged to his owner, and the dog became obsessed with finding it because he/she wanted to "succeed". I reminded mommy of this dog, and she decided to pull my name from the story "The Sopping Thursday" by giving me a name somehow attached to the umbrella. Thus, you have Ella. Also, my mom found me on a Thursday, and it was raining outside that day. There are various other strange coincidences to that story that are relevant to our situation. But that's the short (or rather long) of it!!!
