What's in a Name?

A visit from Tobias, or is it Clement?

Actually it’s LJ. He was home for a visit this past weekend. A nice long relaxing visit – not! He got to the house around 8:45; we visited until around midnight and went to bed. I woke him up just before we left for church so he could move his car and the he headed out around 10:00 AM. A four hour drive for around a 3 hour visit. But whatever, I was still glad to see him. Now about Tobias or Clement…

LJ knows I have the blog of course. Ladies he still thinks we are quaint and frequently teases me as to what we are writing about … our delightful children, cooking, gardening, laundry tips … and I tell him truthfully, yes all those things! There are a few other things I didn’t mentions …sex, spanking, orgasms, paddles, leather, crops, etc. I know he would never believe his mom is discussing this stuff with her friends. I mean all my mom talked about with her friends were her children, cooking, gardening and laundry tips. I mean I think… I mean, surely she didn’t… never mind I am not going there.

But he did have one thing to complain about. He has read a few select things that I have printed off for him and he thinks LJ is the dullest thing I could have possible come up with for his name! You know how actors are!

He said I really needed to do something about it and he suggested his aliases. He was inspired buy Phoebe’s alter ego on Friends, Regina Phalanges. And Karen on Will and Grace, Anastasia Bevenhousher. He is trying to decide between Tobias Fahrenheit or Clement Pridemoore. Again all I can tell you is it is the actor in him coming out. I told him I would let you guy pick. So you tell me, when I talk about LJ in the future should it be Tobias or Clement? Mollie doesn’t know I have a blog. We will just leave her name alone.

First of all, if your going to quote anything from Will and Grace, Uh, you need to have your information correct!

It's Anastasia Beaverhousen!

I like Tobias!

HUGS!

I say he stays LJ. Tell him we're old, frail, little ladies who just don't understand why he doesn't like the name LJ.

Hi PK! I'm backenhousen!!

Way back whenenhousen, there was a fairly famous porn actor who went by the name of "Long John Silver" and 'long' didn't even begin to cover the tip of it. Uh-hunh, this old crocheting, quilting ladyhousen has thought of that fact more than onceenhousen when you've mentioned 'LJ' here. So, let him be whatever he wants to be on his own blogenhousen... here he's LJ, otherwise we old quiltin' ladyhousens will get mighty confusedhousens!

Hey, Eva has a new waterhousens!

I still can't get past the cooking,laundry thing.I like LJ too. A lot of famous people use their initials. C.C..just how do you know about about "long John Silver"...we need to talk woman!
Ok Pk..you can go back to your quilting..cooking and laundry now..(as i laugh at just the thought of that)

My vote is for keeping it LJ. Us old men out here can't remember our kids names sometimes.

I think we all need to have a long talk with CC she has been keeping things from all of us.

*hugs and grins*

PK, I voted for Tobias, but like the others, and I'm not going down C C's route, I'm used to LJ.
If you use a new name you should preface it thusly (LJ)!!!
Warm hugs,
Paul.

PK, look...it took me months and an email to sort out Eva, Elis and PK! What's with all the names??? :)

I agree with the gang... LJ should remain. There's another angle I can't help but worry over. If you change it to something so glaringly obvious as one of those two choices, and he (or anyone he's told about it) does a search under those names, well, I think you know where I'm going with that line of thought.

LJ is safer, simpler and MUCH easier for all of us to remember. And since the blog is yours, not his, I say keep it just the way it is.

Love and hugs,
Tiggs

I vote for keeping LJ. I'm with Sara. Don't confuse my brain after I just got everybody right. My kids don't know about my blog. They would never be satisfied to just KNOW about it. They would want to see it. So, they'll never know if I can help it.
hugs,
Lori

Your Mom talked with her friends about cooking, gardening and laundry tips? uh-huh... whatever helps you sleep, lol. We voted for Tobias, and see just about everyone else did too.

Terpsichore,
Well they were the only choices he gave me.

Grace,
You are right, you are right. Tobias would be ashamed of me!

Eva,
He would probably buy that.

C.C
ROFLMAO!!

Reesa,
It is the better of the two.

Mthc,
You cut me to the quick!!

Debbie,
I am beginning to lean that way.

David,
If you find out from C.C let me know!

Paul,
Yep I am seeing that I will have to do that.

Sara,
LOL!! Sorry we didn't mean to confuse everyone. I guess I shouldn't add to it.

Tig,
I don't think that would be a problem but then again you never know!

Lori,
If my kids found it Mollie would die from embarrassment and LJ would probably laugh.

Todd and Suzy,
That's my story and I am sticking to it!!

Thanks to everyone who voted!! But it looks like most of us old folks are content to stick with LJ!
