lol who on earth is fake bitch?

I'm quite happy with my name- although haven't used my full name in over a decade.

I'd love to have a James Bond style name, Pussy Galore would be fabulous but not sure you'd ever get taken seriously unless you where a porn star!

Kind of got used to it after 30+ years of marriage and am rather attached to it.

Husband has the occasional problem though. His first, middle and surname (family name) are all commonly used first names, for example, charles christopher george. Can make for some entertainment at times with phone calls.

For example, this is ******* from ve dere, is george there? Sorry you have the wrong number.

And have found that, in stores, when you make a purchase and they ask for your phone number if you alter just one digit, they'll ask you again, and again for your number. It doesn't come up on their computer and eventually they'll give up asking. This has cut down enormously the number of [email protected] texts we get about sales etc.

A name for all seasons..... pseudonyms can be fun. Change my real name? Now... probably not but was a killer when I was a kid.... restructured nose and capped front teeth are a lifelong testiment to what I consider as very unfortunate combination of bad parental choice and a belligerent attitude.
