Why my blog has a really long name
I’m trying to come up with a clever gmail account name. EVERYTHING is taken! I started writing really stupid things in there instead to see if they were available. Can you believe “staleoreos” and “aisforalligator” are used? Now it’s become a game of finding the LAMEST gmail account name possible that isn’t taken.
I even tried “firstname.lastname@example.org” so I can tell people to email me at my gmail account, and they’ll say what is it, and I’ll say “mygmailaccount”… and they’ll say “but what is your email address”, and I’ll say “mygmailaccount at gmail.com” and they’ll look at me like I’m the biggest idiot on the planet, and it’ll go on and on like that Abbott and Costello joke about who’s on first and what’s on second.
Well, that was taken. There’s some other smart ass out there just like me who wasted a whole email address on a really lame joke.
Other E-mail addresses that were taken:
crazycatlady <— i don’t even have a cat by the way
Oh, I could probably try all day, they are all taken… unless you make it really, really long. How about a 33 character long email address. If that’s not incentive to write me a quick note, I don’t know what is!
iwonderwhatshesthinking was available. I guess that’ll do. I’m a full-time working, part-time student, mother of two. How much time do I really have to piss away looking for the perfect email account? (Apparently about 2 hours. Thank goodness for nap time and summer break!)
Thanks for reading.
ps, I have full intentions of emailing each of the above mentioned email addresses to commend them on their impeccable taste.
