I was considering never posting again, just so I could keep darling Isabelle Kate at the top of my blog. But I get to see her tomorrow (!), so I’ll just add more kissable baby pics on Monday.
So Gail sent me an e-mail survey last week. I don’t usually bother with those, but this one was different. Kind of a “How well do I know Gail?” type thing. Fun! So I filled it out (and did smashingly well) and sent it out to a handful of friends/family in my address book to find out how much my loved ones knew about me.
Not much apparently. One of the questions was “What is my middle name?” Out of the six people who returned the survey, only one got it right. My sister Stephanie. Way to go, Steph!
The guesses were Lynn, Anne, Grace, Denise, and Darla. (I’m thinking Darla was tongue-in-cheek. Right, Miss? So help the mother who names her child Marla Darla.) All fine names, but my middle name is Rachelle. I’m not sure why I thought that was common knowledge amongst my comrades. Well, there. Now it is.
So that got me thinking. How many Xangals’ (and Xanguys’) middle names do I really know after all? All my family members–Mom, Janelle, Jess, Angie, Bethany, Stephanie, Kelly, Daniel, Gabe. Gail’s. Beth Elaine’s. Kimberly’s. Beki’s. I know a handful of you share Marie. A couple of you have Lynn in your xanga name. And poor Nixie is middle-name-less.
Now I’m all eager to know everybody’s middle name. So how ’bout you let me in on the secret? Maybe I’ll even have a prize for the most unique (subjectively-speaking) middle name. Or something special for the most common middle name (as in, the most commenters with the same middle name).
And Nixie, feel free to make one up, just so you don’t feel left out. Nixie Kate is cute. And I know Isabelle would love to share with you. Right, Izzy-Poo?
So, tell me. What’s your middle name? (and if there’s a story behind it, I’d love to hear that too)
