What's In A Name?

I spend a good deal of time on various sport's forums and tonight when I was on Canucks.com a fellow fan sent me a p/m that made me laugh.

Apparently he wanted to know a bit more about me, so he was checking out the link to this blog via my profile.

Now, let me tell you that when I named my blog I did so very innocently...it was based on a combination of two things. The first was a Holly McNarland song that I was listening to a lot at the time. The second was the fact that the blog was going to be little more than a bunch of crap randomly thrown together, like a junk drawer or a box stuffed full with bits and pieces (hence the name "The Box").

I should've thought it over more.

Poor LagerHog...tonight he clicked on the link and described to me how he immediately thought "JACKPOT"! when it directed him to "Deb's Box". He thought it was going to be one of those places. Sorry to disappoint (this Debbie DOES NOT do Dallas).

Just a boring bunch of Mom stuff.

We shared a chuckle over it.

Hahaha! I had forgotten about Food Porn!

I think I'm fairly safe with my title. Its amazing how many hits I get for people trying to construct their own buttresses.

What's in a name... enough in "Gledwood" to make people sneer.

I've phoned into the radio a few times under this monika and usually of course get str8 on...

only one time the receptionist sneered "Gledwood? Gledwood? what kind of a name's THAT??"

"It's MY NAME" I insisted.

Another time they basically said they wouldn't let me on "unless I gave my proper name" so I said Edward... I got on air and told the world straight away I was Gledwood. Argh: some people!

As for innocence: surely it's better to be innocent than over-knowing in this all-knowing shithole of a world of ours...

A rose by any other name is just as sweet...
