Who Dat?

I get quite a few compliments and/or comments on my blog name (or at least it's what inspires someone to stop by...hi!) so I thought I'd share its source. It's just a random combination of words taken from one of those "name game" extravaganzas that were sweeping through everyone's email at one time. You know where each letter of the alphabet represents a particular word (i.e. 'a'= 'snickle', 'b'=doombah', etcetera) and then you use the third letter of your first name to find your new first name. Then there is a whole new corresponding list for your second, and then last name. It's like a chart. Well. It is exactly a chart. Then you get a new name like: Liver Giggle-Sniffer. Tootsie Farkle-Pants is not an accurate representation of my true (new fake) name. It is a combination of the words that appealed to my ear. No. The true result was something like: Boobie Fricken-Lips. Which doesn't exactly roll off one's tongue. Although, way funnier. So that's how Tootsie Farklepants was born. What's your pseudonym and how come?

I think I may have to steal Boobie Frickin Lips because that is just too awesome.

And I came by to see your blog because of your awesome name - glad I did!

I seriously love Tootsie Farklepants. Seriously. I've been walking around for a few days not just saying it over and over in my head. Now it'll probably be Boobie Frickin Lips.

I am lame and uncreative. I use my real name. Mostly because I'd so forget to use a fake and reveal myself on a daily basis, and then not even realize it and try to keep up the facade while everyone laughs at my stupidity. Just tryin' to avoid all that.

Hey, Tootsie! You KNOW I love your "name." And it is very cool that it is drawing people to you. I was wondering how you had come up with it.

I use my initials. Not too exciting, but it works. Without putting my name out there, I can really make an ass out of myself. Well...that is what I like to think.

Thanks Ladies! And yeah, Boobie Fricken Lips rocks!

Ditto...love the name. It's impossible not to click on it.

Yep - it was the 'Tootsie Farklepants' that got me over here this morning! Badness Jones is the nickname I've called my son since he was a tiny babe in arms...it came from nowhere out of that new-mom sleepless fog brain...

As the name has become more and more MY blog persona, I use it less and less for him. So now in the blog I refer to the boy as 'Bad' - and he's really not. He's a love....but man is he gonna make me go gray!

Tootsie Farklepants said...

Ok. Badness Jones is just the best name ever!

I, too, love the Farklepants. In my house, we call sticky-uppy bits of bed head "farkles."

"Beanpaste", my blog name, is a name that we call my daughter. Such a fetching nickname for a little girl, I know.

My sister in law calls her daughter "Bean"! I love it.

In this house we refer to bling and sparkly things as "farkly". We refer to bed head as "wild and woolly and full of fleas" or FOF for short.
