Keyboard Messin’

Lloyd is doing something to iPhoto and I can’t get to my pictures. Let’s mess around.

While logging into my account, I misspelled my name: Laauren.

Huh.
What would it look like with other extra letters?
Llauren
Lauuren
Laurren
Laureen
Laurenn

The double ‘e’ just brought back flashbacks, because that’s how my 8th grade English teacher, Miss Hansen, pronounced my name, ‘Laureen’. Grrrrr – it made me so mad, but I was a timid coward who never said, ‘Boo’. If I were brave, I would have said, “Yes, Miss Hanseeeeeeen? You’re an English teacher, for crying out loud! It’s a short ‘e’!”

So, let’s see your names. I bet they look wweeiirrdd.

    I like many of the doubles my name can do.
    Bbrad (when you’re cold)
    Brrad! (when you feel like Tony the Tiger)
    Braad (when you’re talking to a sheep)

      I also like Magarret. It sounds like a good name to have when only I can get the job done.

      Who will we get?
      Get Magarret.

    I could be Greetchen, which is how the Germans pronounce my name anyhow.
