Changing my name

I've decided to stop being PJD and start being Peter Dudley on the web.  I've been Peter Dudley pretty much my whole life, and PJD sounds kinda stupid.  I always thought using initials was cool because my brother did it.  But he's got cool initials.  MED.  Yes, he's a doctor (though not a MEDical doctor).

You can still refer to me as PJD if you want.  Some people find change difficult.  I understand.  A lot of people had problems when Prince changed his name.

Got the catalytic converter fixed today.  Mostly Honda in Concord is a top notch place.  No matter where you live, you should take your vehicle there for repairs.  They fixed it same day, and at about 60% the price I expected.

Off to Los Angeles in the morning for a bunch of meetings.  I don't think there will be hula hooping this time, but I've heard a rumor that we'll have a big celebrity as a keynote speaker.  Someone said Shatner.  Oh, that would be so cool.  But I don't believe it.  We'll see.

I am in danger of getting glared at by the Koala this month.  I only have two submissions (unless multiple poems count, in which case I have four in January).  I'm hoping to creep up to five or six points.  But I am very scared.

I missed 3WW last week.  I hope to participate this week.  I am lame.

Hi, Peter.

Hi Peter! I prefer Peter to pjd because now I don't need to wonder whether to use your real name or not.

I'm glad the cat is fixed and that it cost less than it might have done. Still bloody annoying, though.

You do well to be afraid. That koala is terrifying!

Do we have to call you Peter, or can we call you Pete? I'm trying to save my Rs. And who's Price?

PJD said...

Yeah, um... that would be "Prince." I've fixed it now, but the joke kinda lost some effect there. Not that it ever had much to begin with.

Pete is fine. Or Peter. Or whatever, pretty much. Master of the Universe and Lord Over All Things works too. (You can shorten it to MOTUALOAT if you want.)

How about just MOTU? It's got a better ring to it.

You could just call yourself PHD, and thereby compete directly with your brother.

Not to concern you, but I think I hear a Koala creeping up behind both of us, Mr. Dudley...

I've always tried to go by names instead of IDs. I do miss the days of being Deathstalker or Spaceman Spiff though. :)

Pete it is then.
