The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
Rudolph the Red nosed Reindeer
Frosty the Snowman
There is drama, good character development, and the good guys win and Christmas happens.
So why Cindy Loo Hoo?
When i got married I assumed I would change my name. I have no regrets. But at the same time It is weird and somewhat sad to me to lose my middle name AND my last name. When I went to change my license the guy had to literally WALK ME THRU each part saying:
"Ok now write your OLD name..."
"Now sign your NEW name..."
I was shaking, it was very confusing. Yesterday I went to Social Security and I wasnt shaking. So I think i am getting the hang of this and feel a bit less like I am in Whoville?
Today when i changed my FB name I all the sudden thought "OMG, what if someone cant find me?" And on FB of all places! Lol. Of course someone not finding me on FB is hardly my first worry, but it does make me sad that all my peeps who used to call me MAIRS, wont do that anymore. And if i ever wanted to get a butt name on my tri gear it is for sure now going to be JULIA. That is ok, actually.
But in some ways this is fine. I am happy with my new name and obviously more than happy with WHY I have that new name. And as i have gone from being mis-pronounced as
MEYERs or MEIRS or MAVIS ( it is MAIRS but pronounced like the planet MARS)
WEEESBECKER ( it is pronounced WEYEsbecker) it is all fine.
So even if i feel a bit lost like Lucy LooHoo I know who i am.
One funny name change story is that I had to change my USAT name. They wanted a faxed copy of my marriage license. The more i thought about it I suppose I could have said my name is now "Laura Bennett" or "Jennifer Harrison" hahaha. Nope no funny stuff here.
Dr. Seuss went to Dartmouth. Which made me think of this saying. And did you SoCal peeps know that Theodore Geisel also lived in La Jolla up until his death? Fascinating I know.
