I think I need a new name. Not for me but for this wordpress thing. (I hate calling it a blog because a blog is something someone does with a purpose to be a blogger [in my mind] and I don’t have enough coherent thoughts to ever attempt that. This is more just my practice writing.) It feels like the name “legitimately unfunny” doesn’t really fit the vibe of my writing.
I picked the name because, well, it fits more my personality than my writing. The idea of being unfunny is that not only is someone not a funny person but they are so not funny they make funny things unfunny.
Great, not the word funny sounds strange when I say it because I said it too many times.
I got that idea, the unfunny thing, from when I try and tell a story or anecdote. I butcher it. I leave out details. I have no idea how to hit the points to make them sound like they’re important. I have no rhythm. So I can take a funny story and make it unfunny. Then, legitimately is well, my confirmation of it.
But then I have the issue of not wanting to sound pretentious. I don’t want to try and have a name and have it sound so uber cool that it would make me want to vomit. Not literally but still, you know what I mean.
Or, if not pretentious then something so serious and drab that it’s depressing and “emo.”
And then really though, it’s so hard to come up with a name. Being stuck with that thing as what you’re known when referred to as. Picking names for other things or people or pets isn’t so hard because I’m not the one who is stuck with it. (I feel bad for my cat I had when I was a kid. It’s name was “Kitty.” I was not creative.)
So, these 300+ words so far are just me saying that I’m thinking about changing then name of my wordpress thing. We’ll see I guess. Maybe. Maybe not. Whatever. Shut up. Whirling, whirling into the abyss that is my rambling mind.
