New Name.

Welp ... it's my 300th post. When I realized it was coming up, I panicked a little bit and didn't post for a while, because what should one write for a 300th post? And for that matter, what should one write for the 299th post? Oh boy. Stomach churning, acid-y taste in mouth, fears surfacing.

I had some things planned, and they fell through. THEN, I realized ... no one cares about this except me. Huh. Okay then. Thanks a lot, you jerks. So, I decided to do something I have been wanting to do for a long time and was never sure about: I'm changing my name.

You see, when I started this blog on a whim, I logged on to blogger, entered my e-mail address, and they said, "Great! You now have a blog! What will you name it?" Being the impatient person I am, wanting to start writing and not anticipating an audience, I put in a title that reflected how I was feeling about myself that day: Chunky Monkey. 

Now, I'm sure you never noticed this, but this particular title is also in use elsewhere in popular culture. I didn't really think about it or care when I started writing, but then people ACTUALLY started reading it (I did NOT see that coming), and I always wondered if it was a bad thing to share a title with a copyrighted name. But then I was scared to change my name, because three whole people on the Internet read what I say, and will they be confused? Will they still be able to find me in the vast and tangled webs of the Interweb?

Then I told Jeremy I wanted to change it, and he was like, it won't be a big deal. Just do it.

So I AM. And I did.

Good-bye, Chunky Monkey, my dear old friend.

Get ready for post number 301. I bet it will be a doozy.
