Square's turning 33!

I tend to accumulate nicknames. Very few people who know me well actually call me by my real first name. And I say I accumulate nicknameS because I have several. In fact it can be very convenient because depending on what my friends call me reminds me of when and where I met them. In college for example I was initially “Alanis” (it was when Alanis Morrisette was popular…and no it wasn’t because I was an angry female or a singer), which became “Atlantis” which became “Space Shuttle Atlantis” or “Lost city of Atlantis” whenever I said something that made me sound, well, spacey. Or lost. I heard that one quite often. I was always referred to as “Atlantis” and often people were surprised when they found out that “Atlantis” wasn’t actually my name. I must make it clear that I have never CHOSEN the nicknames I’ve acquired (no, not even SquareGirl), but I learned it is best not to attempt to avoid them. Just sigh and accept they are a part of who you are, and then you can actually enjoy being say “Square” rather than try to convince yourself your actually cool.

Tomorrow is Independence day here in the good ole US of A and happens to be my birthday (I’ll be 33 so technically not a “girl”, but “SquareGirl” nonetheless) and for this reason and the fact that apparently I look like an all-American gal, I am referred to as “Miss America” by a specific group of friends. It is my least favorite nickname, but just as I’ve learned to accept my squareness, I’m coming to terms with it.

So Happy Independence Day to any American Square enough to be blogging today! And if you get a chance, light a sparkler in the name of all Squares everywhere!

Happy Birthday Squaregirl!!

I grew up with nicknames all my life. My name was/is so difficult to pronounce that nicknames were part of the norm. Some were mean spirited and others were fun. My new nickname seems to be clutz and for obvious reasons. Either way, they're fun!

Happy Birthday SG!

You know, I really like your actual name. In fact, if our second baby was a girl, that is exactly what we were going to call her. But, it didn't happen.

Square suits. Although, now that you're 33 you could make a nice triangle with 11 per side. Just sayin'. :-)

SG!
How cute are YOU??? Feliz cumpleaños and congratulations on 33 years of successful squareness!!!

I've had a couple of nicknames myself but have always been partial to "The Salominator".

I've already had many laugh with your stories.

. . . and Squaregirl got a Nano! Didn't you just say a few posts ago that you didn't have an iPod? Was someone dropping hints?

Happy Belated!

Doug, I'm sure it has something to do with all of my personalities!

XD, I think your name is beaustiful, but I know that unique names lend themsleves to nicknames!

Thanks Gretchen (my mamasquares name)!

Thanks Pez's and so glad to have you both here!

Neva, yes, you were indeed FIRST and I thank you!! That Joel guy likes to make it seem like he's first, but don't worry, you and I know th truth.

Thanks Kyahgirl. I actually love my name, but I think I'll stick with being Square.

Sal, thanks. I love the Salomonator. And by the way I dreamed of the IDG's last night, but I'll save that for another post...

thanks TLP

And Mamaroo, I've lived here all my life, so I guess I really am a California gal

Hahahahaha! Doug! Why? Did you want to borrow it?

Jodes, a great year and a great place!

Ariel, So glad of you to comment!

Shawn, You really threw me for a loop for a second...couldn't figure out how you knew I got a Nano until, DUH, I realized it was in the photo. I actually wanted an iPod, but none of my friends and ffamily reads this so I suppose they picked up on other hints. Still it was a lovely birthday gift to recieve!

Minka, yes indeedy you were FIRST (as you belong anywhere and everywhere!). And thanks for the happy Tuesday! And of course I'm missing you tons!!! I'm glad your on vacation, but blogging is so much less fun without a penguin!

SG - Sorry I'm late! Happy Birthday none the less. I hope you had an awesome day!

You don't resemble *at all* the Square Girl I had pictured in my head. You're much cuter! :)

Blogger SquareGirl said...

Wendy, No apolgies necessary, I'm just glad to see you here! Thanks, but I actually don't really even look like that...it just turned out to be a flattering pic and then I went ahead and posted it! i am actually much less cuter than the photo, so probably way more acurate to what you pictured in your head!

An Independence Day birthday - what fun! Hope you had a great one! And CONGRATULATIONS, btw, on the wedding next month! (I read your 'announcement' on Octoberbabies' blog.) Which island? We honeymooned on Maui 11 years ago and took our kids there with us last Summer - incredible place. I do hope you'll post about it and include a picture - congratulations again!
