First, I gotta come clean and say that I have been blogging for about ooooohhhh, 3.5 years now but it was what I referred to as my dirty little secret. From here on out we shall call that blog "the dark side." I did cutesy little posts and everything like I do now but it was started with my sister & her rowdy friends and I liked to keep it that way. On the dark side I used fake names for everyone in my family. Since I didn't know any of my sister's friends personally it felt safer that way.
Then I decided to hop on over to blogger and invite everyone I knew to my new & improved blog. I figured it was a safe place to use real names & I thought it would be a refreshing change of pace to not have to think up nicknames for everyone. So this brings me to last night... Jenny reiterated how important it is to keep a little bit of anonymity on the web and it made me realize that I probably ought to go back to my beloved nicknames.
Below are the characters in my life and the names that they shall henceforth be known. I will also provide a little history on each name if needs be. This is shaping up to be a very educational post, don't you think?
My hunky leading man:
I refer to myself as Landee. This comes from my neice (who is now like, 15 years old) naming her stuffed kitties Sandia and Landeelu when she was about 3 years old. Cut to 1999 when my sister (she's always dragging me into stuff!) made me go around to chatrooms with her while I was supposed to be working. I chose Landeelu as my sign on name and it has stuck with me ever since. My full name, of course, is Landeelu Landerson which would explain why this is landersons.blogspot.com. I know. Awesome.
I will now go back and change all the real names I've used so far to our new spy names. I guess that if I ever print off my blog for posterity I'm going to have to create some kind of key or flow chart or something? That is gonna be annoying.
PS If I ever feel the need to blog about YOU I might ask what you want to be called... or I might just make something up. We'll see... ::drumming fingers evily:: oh yes, we'll see.
