Monday MeMe

Got this from here.

1.  If you could change your name, what would you choose and why?

I've always DETESTED my real name.  Most people don't pronounce or spell it correctly.  First days of school were never fun as a kid and got worse by the time I entered junior high and had 5 or 6 classes.  That meant 5 or 6 times I had to correct every teacher every year!  By the ninth grade, I decided to go by a nickname a friend came up with.  I like it better but am still annoyed that almost everyone spells it incorrectly.  I've even had someone tell me I spell it wrong.  No, YOU spell it wrong!

I don't plan on ever having kids but if I ever did, I always liked the name Jordan Taylor.  It can be used for a boy or a girl.  So maybe I'd change my name to that.

2.  Describe your favorite kind of pizza.  

Any kind that doesn't give me heartburn.  I love meat lover types of pizzas.

3.  If you could get any tattoo for just a week, what and where would it be?  Would you consider getting it permanently?

I have two tatts currently and want two more.  I'd probably get some kind of fairy or pixie or something but I'm not sure where I'd put it.  Maybe on my ankle.  The thing I love about my current tats is that I can cover them up or show them off.  If I decided I really liked it, yes, I'd consider getting it permanently.

4.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.
My first impression is that it's a cool picture.  But then after taking a moment to let it sink in, I realize I don't like it as much as I thought I did.  It reminds me of an Ice Princess blowing snow all across the land.  Me and snow are not friends.  Snow can be very pretty but I hate being so cold and I especially hate driving in it.
Does anyone know what ever happened to Booker Man and Asa?  They haven't posted since July 2011.  I hope everything is ok with them.

Remember way back when, when I said that I was going to host another giveaway?  Only I never did?  Well, I was supposed to download a program to my computer and then download some templates.  I never could get the templates to download and work properly!  I worked with the tech company and after following their step-by-step instructions, it didn't make a bit of difference.  I thought it was just me but I talked with someone else who hosted a giveaway from this same company.  She said she had some issues with the program too.  I decided I have better things to do than to fight with the program.  I told the company that because of the issues I was having and not being able to use their program, I couldn't review it.  I would never host a giveaway of a product like that that I've never used.  Plus, after the struggle I had, I couldn't very well give them a good review.  

I'll host another giveaway one of these days.

People always mess up my mom's name, too. She also has one tattoo and would like one more.

Your pal, Pip

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Many of us have wondered what has happened to Booker Man and Asa. I hope they are OK. I really MISS them too.

Meg said...

Names are hard, you know we had to think of names for the little bean in my belly and was tough! I love the name Jordan Taylor, super great!

I <3 pizza!

Scooter said...

Hey Wylde One!
Wow, I like your blog names just fine anyway! Silly peeps saying you can't spell it. BOL. Hey I love pizza too...especially pizza bones. I surely miss Booker Man too and I wish he'd come back.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

I like Jordan & Taylor. I honestly think your name is cute. What is your 2nd tattoo of? I'll never forget you getting your 1st 1. I want a fairy or pixie too.

I don't think you can get Lynne wrong - except for the spelling, lol.
When I was 17 I was desperate for a tattoo but my mum talked me out of it.
Those are great answers, I enjoyed reading them.

People use to mess my last name up all the time, then I got married and people still mess that name up. I have been thinking of getting another tatt, just not sure where I want it to go!

I have not heard of that book...I agree with the thoughts of the ice pic...I understand giveaways are a lot of work. I hardly do any but I may giveaway a TShirt??? if I ever take the time to do it

Jenny Woolf said...

The picture reminds me of someone blowing the seeds off a dandelion clock
I have given up pizzas since seeing how many calories, it's shocking!!!!!

Ruby said...

While I don't hate my name, I prefer Ruby, my blogname. The tatoo would be a Dolphin riding Mermaid below my collar bone.

Unknown said...

you got me really curious about your real name now! :-) as someone with a "difficult name" too – I can relate to what it's like with people constantly getting it wrong or trying to force their opinions on you. I do hate the hassle that comes with my name – but I love my name and I refuse to change it to an English one, just to make it easier for "Westerners" to pronounce. After all, when Western people go to China etc, they don't take on a Chinese name to make things easier for Chinese people to pronounce!


Sagira said...

Good for you for not going through with it if you were having problems. You would like the company would want to make things as easy as possible for you.

I am not sure what happened to Booker Man and Asa but sure do miss hearing about their adventures.
