Names

So I got off the phone with the other half just now. Have to admit, I called him because I was excited that we had been left a comment. I honestly didn't think anyone ever would.

So he's like "Well are you going to tell me?"

First off ... I'm surprised It's from a member who (as near as I can tell) has never even visited either of us before.

Remember folks, this is a secondary blog. Used only so that we can wonder at people. And not always in a nice way.
Turns out ... I shouldn't have gotten excited. She was paying him a compliment. And that's nice of her. Really it is. But I was the writer. I don't think he has even read the post yet.

I tell him what she says.

"Well I do know how to spell it! Thank her for me."

Then he told me that I had to do something with the names and how I was referring to ourselves here. He said it even confused him. "People are going to see
Jst and think that you are misspelling it all the time."

What do I do now?

I don't want to refer to each other the way we normally would.
Remember now. This is a secret site.

"It doesn't have to be hard. Just pick a couple of names."

Have you ever tried to come up with a name for yourself? Other than the handles you go by on-line. Our real handles fit us. And we often refer to each other by them. At times we even use each others names or first initials.

I thought I was being clever with this handle. Made sense at the time. He seemed to like it. But now it seems that calling him Jst isn't going to work. I may still call myself 4.


So, anyone willing go give us a shout out with helpful hints on choosing names?

I am also going to go and delete her post. I thank her deeply from the gratitude pool ...
and if you are by chance reading this, please believe me on that ... but I don't intend to embarrass anyone here. And since I have posted this today ... she may not wish to be identified.

I realise she was being nice and trying to flirt with him. Well, either that or she was trying to beef up her count. I prefer to think of the situation in the former ideals. It doesn't matter. I don't want to cause anyone any embarrassment. That's the whole point of having an anonymous, secondary profile that we can us to blog with. Save feelings.

    Quoting wantonwill:

Those sound more like handles, and what I need is something I can call ourselves within the blog and on the magazine. He actually suggested simply using Dick and Jane. He keeps telling me that I don't have to be truthful. "Remember, it's secret."

But I was actually very straight forward in our profile. The only flat out lie I told was where we were.

I still like the idea of calling myself 4.

Maybe I should just call him 5/b]. Hmm. That's a thought I'll have to run by him in the morning.
