A girl with many names

When I was a little girl and someone would ask me what my name was, I would tell them. My name is "dogdiggy". It wasn't that I didn't like my name, I just couldn't for whatever reason pronounce my name correctly. In my little mind dogdiggy= cortney. I don't know what it is about my name, but all little ones find it difficult to say. To my nephew Max, I was Aunt Porky. Needless to say I was a little happy to watch him grow out of that one. At the age of 4 he can now say Aunt Cortney. To my nephew Oliver, I am Aunt Funning. ??? I don't get it either.
I heard once that a person with many nicknames is a person who is well-loved. I hope thats true, but I might have made it up.
Some of the many names I have answered to and the people that have given them to me are:
baby gweeo-dad
Corn-friends, but harmony is the only one that still does
Big Girl-keri
Ai Ling- my chinese name, it means "love girl"
C - aleksi
Cutegirl- ex-boyfriend
funning- Oliver
Yortney- heather
I love nicknames. I have nicknames for nearly all of my friends and family. I am sure there are some that I have forgotten about, but those are a few of mine.
I am a girl with many names.
I am a girl who loves and a girl who is loved.

There is still a little part of me that believes that Michael Jackson is alive.

That his death was all a hoax.
It's probably the same little part of me that believes that Nate Berkus likes women.

yummy? yes.

I'm sure you think I'm just being silly and that I am in denial, and you are probably right on both accounts. But whats wrong with a little denial sometimes? Its not hurting anyone that in my dreams I am married to Nate and we are living in a beautifully decorated condo overlooking the Pacific. It doesn't hurt anyone that I think that MJ is moonwalking across the sand on some deserted island, finally free.

Michael, my dear friend, I promise that wherever I am, whatever I am doing, if you are singing...I will be dancing.
