Changing my Username

When I joined, I decided to name myself ICkaraokegirl because, well, I am incontinent and I love karaoke. And I'm a girl. (Well, a woman, but whatever.) For a while now, though, I have felt that this monicker is a bit awkward and cumbersome. It has neither the zazz of some names out there nor the simplicity and directness of others nor the cuteness of still others. It's just...utilitarian. And it is too long to be utilitarian, in my opinion. So I have decided to change it.
To my surprise there is a mechanism for doing so; I expected this not even to be possible. I considered several options. I thought of calling myself GilmoreGirl after one of my favorite TV shows. I considered Zazz because I like the word. Since I am the Stories Mod, I could go with Editor in Chief or Fairy Tale or Storytime or Mother Goose or some such thing. If I wanted to keep a singing motif but get a bit silly about it, I could call myself Lady Googoo. Lots and lots of possibilities.
In the end, though, I decided to go with simplicity. So I will, in a little while, be changing my username to kerry. Why not? it seems like the easiest thing to do. And I will no longer have to deal with the unintended byproduct of my original choice: being addressed as "ICK" by everyone. (I swear: a girl could get a severe inferiority complex!) The change will come as soon as I feel I have made enough posts with my new signature that foreshadows it.
Don't worry though: I still leak just as much and sing just as much. Can;t change that stuff with the stroke of a few keys!
