it’s ridiculous how much i’m thinking about this. song titles, streets i’ve lived on, childhood pets, favorite candy bar, obscure names for common things… this is craziness. i just want a cool alias, is that so much to ask?
right now i’m looking at a "short list" of sorts, but i’m not confident that i won’t still add to it. the finalists at the moment are:
- willoughby (the dorm i lived in during study abroad)
- thistle (one of my favorite flowers)
- kerbey lane (one of my favorite restaurants in a previous town)
- girl least likely to (a morrissey song i have always liked)
i have dumped "korintje" (a type of cinnamon–my favorite spice) because i have no idea how to pronounce it and it looks a little pretentious. i have also dumped about a billion others because they are just too dumb. i’m still not even sure that thistle deserves to be on my short list, but i just really like that stupid flower. at the moment it’s a dead heat between willoughby and girl least likely to, with the teensiest edge going to the girl.
