The Name of the Game

When you have a name like mine, you get used to people misunderstanding it. "You know. Like Christmas" tends to be the most successful way to get the message across. Most of the time, people ask for clarification and, after hearing it, still look at me with a thoughtful gaze. This look, of course, betrays any attempt they make at appering to understand the words coming out of my mouth. So then they just call me Nicole. Yeah. My name IS NOT NICOLE! Phew. That felt good. That being said. Here are some other names that I have been called:

Murell
Marvel
Mella
Mellow
New-well
Nora
Laura
Ma-low
Melissa
Melos
Melat
Paige
Mel-el
Merlot

What do people call you?

Update:  Brundle.  Yeah, another name.  WTF?

New for this week: Millow, Llewelyn, Holly and Melanie

And for this week: Melar and Norell

11/23: Kim

It most definitely does not sound like Beth. But at least they are still right kind of so that's something. You would definitely have a lot to blog about, I say go for it. You should read Erin's too. She includes a lot of funny things she has overheard down in good old Bama. Pretty awesome.
