WOW. Two posts in one day to make up for the future famine.

They say you can tell a lot about a person by their e-mail address.
For example, Elaina's used to be something with "sixth eyelash" in it. Now that implies to me sorta emo, but artistic with a corny, random sense of humor.
HA! Am I right or what? It's like the sort of randomness I wish I'd had all my life, but have only just begun to acquire from Elaina, total copycat and loser that I am, because I think it's really cool.
My first e-mail address was parasite101@hotmail.com
Much as that suggests that I was emo, goth, and embittered toward a gutter-like society, the story really is like so: I was sitting down at the computer totally blank as to what to make my e-mail address. I was going to make it "Jesus_loves_florie@yadayada" or "florie777@yadayada", and I thought those were very original and personalized depictions of character. When Abe came in and found something like a thorn in his arm, yelled "PARASITE" as an alternative to cursing at the top of his lungs. Wow, I thought, that would make me sound emo and goth, and that's pretty groovy! Parasite by itself was already taken, so I added 101 as the first thing at the top of my head, a clever homage to my favorite movie about dalmations.
Second e-mail address I made on new years 2003, chilling with my friend in another city. I was thinking, "wow, I'm such a happy-go-lucky, embrace life, living, throbbing human life form!" and I gave myself the lucky identity of aliveness2003. Wow, aren't we burning up!
More recently, though, I was invited to the exclusive underground society of gmail, and my sister happened to be present to witness my inaugeration. Among her suggestions were names like: "jupiter_child" and "petals_of_moonlit_violet" and "daughter_of_the_white_wind" (I think she's secretly an American Indian)
To her, these represented a cool character. A sort of trippy, hippy sort of...cool...something. Like, if one was related to a plant or planet, they were extra "in touch". I remember totally ignoring her and laughing to myself whilst I threw out ideas like "i_suck_super_bad@gmail.com" and "naked_people_everywhere@gmail.com" or "ready_and_waiting@gmail.com", "my_tongue_faileth@gmail.com"
When Sunny expressed disdain for my ideas, I decided to bravely tease her with ideas like "jupiter's_illegitimate_baby" and "petals_of_metal_inferiority_complexes"
(She still secretly hates me. She'll never admit it, but it's true.)
When it came down to it, the only one I seriously thought of using was "swallow_me_whole." I toned it down to "swallow.this@gmail.com" and that is the e-mail address that you can contact me at to tell me how much this post sucks.
Okay, so maybe my sister doesn't hate me. But to her I remain, affectionately, the_biggest_loser_of_the_rhodendron_moon_children

Nice story. Just one little thing: IT'S ALL LIES.

I wasn't there for this supposed encounter. I never made any of those suggestions. I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE SMOKING, girlie, but uh uh, nah. Not I.

Neat ideas though. I'd probably end up choosing something off beat before I'd go with the "white_wind..." whatever.

Honestly, child, are you just making shit up now? Have you run that dry that I'm going to have to write rebuttles to every single blog from now on? Lol!

What a crrrrazy girl you are.

Oh my gosh! You don't remember then!
It was when you and Emmanuel were here before you went to the States. I swear, maybe Dan will remember, you were standing there trying to help me with a name for MSN chat. I took some liberties with the examples cause I don't remember the real ones, but they were plenty similar, I promise. American Indian everything.
However, I have no objections to being a crrrrrrrrazy girl.

Oh, way back then? Well, I thought it was more recent. I suppose it's possible then. Hmm. Can't remember at all though. If you say so.

Tell me about it.
Like that time when we were out witnessing and someone asked for our email address.
We couldn't recall the home's email, so it was a toss-up between swallow.this and hyper.diaper.
Yeeeaaah.

i actually made a florencemcnair related one once upon a time. it was so boring that i never opened it. it didn't inspire me. it didn't MOVE me.
but yeah, i did it for that very reason.
apparently i need odd things in my life.

HA, i remember that, El. That was really funny. you were like "give her yours!" and I had to whisper it to you under my breath before you decided to give her yours instead.

zander, there is nothing interesting about your e-mail addresses. the last one is the funniest, but i feel guilty laughing cause it's profane!!!

go ahead and spam me, purpleish. i don't get much spam nowadays. that's the whole reason i posted my e-mail address on the internet, so i can open my e-mail box and have 100 new e-mail messages and feel popular again.
