I give up!

Too many complaints about my chosen blog moniker - some subtle, some insistent, some polite, some downright rude (those last mostly being insults from the husband).

I'm pig-headed enough to ignore this, except that I've lived with the name for a few weeks now and I have to admit, when I happen upon my own comments on other blogs, it takes a second or so for it to register that that's me!

So I give up - now YOU can decide what to call me (and live with the consequences! :-) But don't start rubbing your hands together and coming up with the world's most outrageous names just yet, I've got 3 choices for you to pick from.

(Ha! I may be a cotton candy head, but I'm not that stupid!)

So here are your options, in no particular order of (my) preference:

1. Maggie / Mags:
This is an old real life nickname I've had on account of my Maggi noodle like hair. Plus, on occasions when I'm being really insane, you can call me Mad Mags - a sort of Mallu Mad Max, get it?! :-D



2. CurlyQ / Curly:
Another take on the curly hair, a curlicue is a pattern of concentric circles, and can also refer to a twist or a curl.



3. Peppermint Penny / Penny:
You know, like Peppermint Patty of Peanuts. But Penny because that's short for another of my real-life nicks that people still call me by occasionally. Plus there's the obvious fact of my being 'peppy' and cool (and genetically incapable of letting a PJ go, apparently :-)


Those of you who feel that this is all a bit of hoo-ha about nothing, and I should just stick with what I've got, please do pipe up.

All 4 options are up on the poll I've got going on the sidebar, so get over there and vote!

Lurkers, you too, please!

To me you will always be moppets mom. Candyfloss, penny and curly, bah.

SilentOne said...

Am a lurker here normally..
My vote goes to penny - sounds funky and cool somehow.

Also glad you are going for a name-change - candyfloss is too close to dental floss !!

Timepass said...

I vote for Moppet's mom even though it is not among the three choices u have given..How did u celebrate Moppet's bday?

B o o said...

You asked for it, MM. The floss bit bothered me a little too but I knew I would get used to it in a while so did nt whine! Like Kiran said, you ll always be Moppets Mom. but if I have to, I vote for Mags. See? This is why I christened myself first even before looking for a nick for Ashu! He he! But then, who knew we would get insane enough to have two kids, right? ;)

Sue said...

Can't do poll for some reason, but I'm voting for Maggie. It's you.

~nm said...

I agree with all..you will always be moppets mom for us!

Since you have named your baby-in-tummy as Much, how about "M2M"?

Parul said...

Why is 'None of the above' not an option? I refuse to participate in such a biased poll.

Hmph.

Kodi's Mom said...

Yay, candyfloss is out! we tried - we really did, couldn't get used it to it!
Moppet's Mom, if you HAVE to change your name, let it be to Maggi noodles, um, no just Maggi will suffice.

*** Happy Grin ***

I vote for Mags too ... close to Moppets Mom as well.

BTW, how long are you going to keep the vote open?

Sunita said...

My votes for Maggi as well :)

Just Like That said...

LOL! Poor you! Just goes to show how popular you and the moppet are, sweetie.
But you have to admit, saccharine sweet is just NOT your style..:-) not by half, it isn't!!
I plump for Mallu Mad Mags. We can always call you MMM, right?
And I LIKED MAggie of Eliot's The Mill on the Floss. Maggie/Mags it is- off to vote for Mags

DotMom said...

you will always be moppet's mom in my heart :P
But I vote curlyQ. I am a sucker for silly puns.

Manjari said...

Mag's mom fits exactly..

Anonymous said...

Mira's mom said...

Hey, can't go to the poll either. But, I too like "Maggie" - think its warm, nice and very approachabile!

Orchid said...

hey where did my comment go? :( and it was a pretty long one too...:(
will be back!

Mona said...

thanks for the wishes :)
and i vote for maggie!

Swati said...

Hey ..there is no option like "Stick to Moppet's Mom" and so I had to vote for Maggieee. But whenever I will see you as Maggiee/Candyfloss or whatever , its goes like "Ohhh..thats Moppet's Mom" , But yeah its not only Moppet now and so I am with you on finding a better name :-)

SUR NOTES said...

all your explanations were fun, almost voted for mallu max= mad mag...
but...moppet's mom is a GOOD OPTION.

churningthewordmill said...

im SO glad you decided to give "candyfloss" a ditch!! i agree to parul..this is a baised poll..but nevertheless, i'd vote for maggi

noon said...

Phew - good candy floss is out.
Madmags - goodvone!

Poppins said...

I didn't mind Candyfloss much like Boo here, but since everyone hated it, I vote for Mags. It goes with Moppet and Munch as well.

I'm dreading going in that direction myself, of looking for a nick!

Asha said...

Moppet's Mom was the best... But then when Munch comes.... may be M&M's Mom? Anyway, I have voted for Mags.

the mad momma said...

i like maggie.. though i'll miss Moppet's mom

choxbox said...

err.. moppet's mom? no? okay maggie then!

Mystic Margarita said...

Since Moppet's Mom is not an option (hmmph!), I voted for Maggie. But somehow I no likee Mags.
