Newsflash: Blogger Shortens Name to Please Fans

Since Sean Puff Daddy Puffy P. Diddy Combs has decided to shorten his name(s) to simply "Diddy" I request that you now refer to me only as "&-ee". As Mr. Diddy has so kindly pointed out, it's much easier for people to chant/scream your name if it's two easy syllables. And, in my case, I'm making it even easier by bowing to the phonetically challenged and throwing in a symbol.

&-ee, out!

*Note: No tongues or cheeks were harmed during the drafting of this post.

  1. Um. Andi to & ee ? Wow that must have been two week very intensive process. Is this what vacation does to a person? I'll abstain, thank you.

  2. That's kinda what I thought when Puffster made his announcement. How long must his vacation have been? At least I had inspiration...he had to come up with it on his own.

  3. your name is still too long...I suggest dropping one 'e', that way us lazy folk can say it without hurting our brains.

  8. E-vil,
    Thank you, dahling. I thought it was chic in a Prince'ish way myself.

    R,
    But then the boneheads of the world would pronounce it wrong! I can't sacrifice pronunciation...I'm an English teacher!

  11. when i was a kid, i used to spell my name by leaving the first vowel out (opaco not my real name) which would make it very very difficult to pronounce. the teachers would have a hard time with it.

  12. It's always fun to trip teachers up. Being one, I'll probably go to hell now or have a classroom full of smartasses, but if that's my punishment...so be it!

  13. Wow, I like it! It makes so much sense!

  14. miss & ee, every time puff/daddy/diddley squat changes his name i cringe and sigh. if i were the media i would refuse to call him doody or whatever his is now and just call him sean...see how he likes that! i wonder if jlo is going to feel like she has to change her name again?

  15. what grade and subject are you teaching?

  16. Pink Kitty,
    I thought so!

    Go-go,
    I bet he'd feel like he was being chastized by his mother if everyone called him Sean. I think he should now also have to change the name of his clothing line.

    J.Lo can shampoo my crotch.

  17. Opaco,
    I teach developmental reading and English for a community college. The developmental classes are for the people who haven't reached the required test scores to enter "regular" college courses. It's a GREAT job. I love it, and I love all the interesting students that come through my classes.

  18. Now you're just tryin' to confuse me.

  19. that would be an honorable job. cause you are truly in a position to help someone who really needs it. they are there to attend college and they need to learn in order to continue.

    besides, i think teachers should be paid the same as congressman. watch how fast each state votes to raise the teachers salaries.

  20. Opaco,
    I like the way you think. Now, let's get you elected!

    i wouldn't be able to wait for things to happen and it would piss me off.
