I Want A New Nickname

I want a new nickname, Huey Lewis. One that won't make me my grandfather's casket do pirouettes (i.e. "WP").

Not "Monsieur Le Touche'," that's too cumbersome. Not "Skittles," I don't want anyone to taste my rainbow. Not "Psycho," I'm not putting on the wig, Anthony Perkins. Not "Mr. Angry," that belongs to "Angry Anderson" of an Austrailian metal group whose name I have long forgotten.

Not "Pigeon Slayer," Beth. Not "Speedo" or "Mister Earl," no one gets those references.

Any nominations? Somebody come up with something sensible before I change the name of this blog to "Racer X."

I think Racer X would be totally cool. Way better than "Spritle" or "Chim Chim" anyway.

Bubs,

Heh-heh-heh!

Todd,

"AntiProcrastinator"

N-ice...but it's just not me.

"The Writernator"

Excellent, but I wouldn't want to be associated with Arnie until he pays the California public schools back or helps me with a three-picture deal (where I could then help the public schools with my own blood money).

As Sir Mick Jagger would say:

"You can't always get what you want"

Why put it off to tomorrow if you can put it off to the day after tomorrow?

How's about:

"Always Write" or "Semper Scripta" in Latin

If this were jewgirl's blog, (what's amazing is she actually eats with that same mouth)I'd say:

"Write C**t"

You missed it! Back in May I offered a service to my readers in which I'd give them a free nickname (some still use theirs). I'd link to the post here if I knew how. Anyway, the key to a good nickname, in my opinion, is that it not make any sense. Here are a few suggestions:

-Mudfoot
-Mr. Crispy
-Potato-Butt
-Zortron

I've got more...

Sterculian,

"How's about: "Always Write"

Sure, if I wanted the Missus to laugh herself near to death ; )

"or "Semper Scripta" in Latin"

Nice. That is on the list.

Chris,

"I'd link to the post here if I knew how."

1) Go to your blog and in the blank space at the top left hand corner, type in "nickname" and hit "enter."

2) This will automatically search just your blog. Find appropriate post and click "the date" that you posted it on. In this case "5/18/07" and it is just to the left of the "53 comments."

3) Highlight the html of the post and "copy" (Ctrl+"c").

4) Consult this page on how to post links.

Your link to the nickname post.

"Here are a few suggestions:

Mudfoot"

Uh...no.

"Mr. Crispy"

Ooh, I like that one...

"Potato-Butt"

Naw, everyone will go "what, Potato-Butt?"

"Zortron"

Naw, too "Ming The Merciless." "Mr. Crispy" is on the list and that's a fine nickname service that you provide, young Chris.

What about The Beth Wannabe? Or Squirrel Lover? Maybe Chuck?

The Beth Wannabe?
Are you going to take that?

Always Write, AND you dedicate it to the Missus!
Win win!

Johnny Dollars,

"Writer Compulsive"

You down with OCD?
Um, let me get back to you on that, after I lock my door for the twenty-fourth time.

Beth,

"What about The Beth Wannabe?"

Quoth the Robert Smith-

Whyyyy
Ohhhh, whyyyy
Why can't I be you?


"Or Squirrel Lover?"

At least, unlike pigeons, squirrels typically don't carry lice.

"Maybe Chuck?"

Naw, then I'll disappear off of "Happy Days."

Sterculian,

"Are you going to take that?"

Eh, I still am ahead, two-to-one.

I had to finish counting my can vegetables 15 times before I could write it.

I actually like Cor the best.

Johnny Dollars,

"I had to finish counting my can vegetables 15 times before I could write it."

That's why I wish I had complete OCD, instead of selective compulsions. I'd never run out of soup.

"I actually like Corn the best."

Other than beans, corn is the only other vegetable that really is still a vegetable after it is "tinned."

Hmmm, I'm on the fence for that one. On one hand that's cool, like "rotten to the Cor". On the other hand, it sounds like a Cockney expletive.

Sorry, four and half hours of sleep today. It's going to be a long work night.

But that works too.

Johnny Dollars,

Since you sent that pack of rabid Bobos, lead by Bobo T, I will grudgingly put "Cor" on the list.

Katie-lah,

"do you really hate wp?"

Remember? You were the first the first person that I told about me getting rid of that accursed monniker.

"what about wpeaser?"
No.
"peaser?"
No.
"pealish?"
Not even.
"writepdiddy?"
Not until I make Stephen King-type money, no.
"writedaddyofdoom?"
I love that one, but it is too long.
"writinggod?"
I haven't gotten there, yet.
"linguisticnosh?"
Not bad, but some asswipe will eventually call me "Succotash."

"for the record, I am going to be one bluejew when I have to stop saying wp, wpeaser and peaser."

You are one of the few that can call me whatever you want.
